Dan builds trust from the moment you meet, which creates a safe, honoring session. His guidance empowered me in setting my boundaries, in loving my form, and in exploring my sexuality. Going to some edges and discovering my enjoyment, has quite simply changed the course of my life. I found my voice, I let go of layers of shame, I reconnected to my vibrancy.

~ D.B.

What Clients Say

I learned new avenues of pleasure…

I have had several sessions with Dan and cannot speak highly enough of the impact his work has made in my life. I came to Dan at the tail end of a 25 year marriage where my body had shut down sexually. I had worried I was unable to feel pleasure until these sessions proved otherwise!

I learned new avenues of pleasure for me, and now I guide women to reconnect with their vibrant selves. 

~ D.B.

What Clients Say

More intimate and expansive marriage…

I was initially called to work with Dan, through my interest in Tantra and the relationship between spirituality and sexuality. I have been an energy worker for many years and continue to be interested in more fully accessing and utilizing my body’s energetic information, guidance and power. I have been married for over thirty years and the work I did with Dan opened me to a way of being that has profoundly changed my life in every way. My relationship with my husband has become more intimate and expansive at the same time.

~ C.K.

What Clients Say

A deeper connection between myself and another…

Dan created strong and trustworthy boundaries and shared his knowledge and skill in a diverse and gentle manner. I was able to relax into pleasure and follow the rhythm of my body to receive a deeper connection between myself and another. I found the work to be revealing and opened me to areas where I have previously closed myself off due to trauma and self limiting beliefs.

I am grateful to Dan for his willingness to share this good work with others.

~ C.K.

Truly contributed to my sense of self worth…

You have done that unconditionally and it has truly contributed to my sense of self worth and the place I find that I am in now. I still have work to do, but as I look back on this process, I am just feeling so very grateful to you for helping me get to this place. Thank you for the work that you do.”


What Clients Say

Very safe and comfortable…

Working with Dan felt very safe and comfortable. Dan explains what he is doing before he starts so you do not have to be preoccupied with wondering what is happening. He communicates ground rules and helps you make a safe signal if you feel uncomfortable.

I had extremely low energy when I went to see Dan. After the session I was energized and my body became more alive.

~ F.C.

What Clients Say

Truly in service to the Goddess…

Dan is truly in service to the Goddess. He creates a safe, sacred space for erotic exploration. He introduced me to new and divine full-bodied pleasures. I’m more present and joyful in my continuously changing menopausal body. 

~ A.D.

What Clients Say

I feel sexy, alive, beautiful & powerful…

Working with Dan has liberated me because I have been able to form new perceptions of what it is to be a strong and beautiful female. I spent many years suppressing the passion I had within myself or hiding it from those whom I thought might reject me if they knew what was inside of me. I also have issues with my body image after giving birth to four children. It would be nice to say that I fully embrace my body as it is after meeting with Dan but I’m not there yet. He has, however, helped me to see my beauty beyond my body’s flaws. I feel sexy, alive, beautiful, powerful, and that I’m more than enough as I am.

~ F.B.

What Clients Say

The sessions were all about me…

Dan has helped me to form new healthy thoughts about boundaries with others, pleasure, relationships, communication, and how to be a strong woman. I learned how to work with my body and engage with it to put myself in the best position to receive more connection and sensations than I ever have. I have felt safe with every interaction I’ve ever had with him. Dan is a man of integrity. He is professional, great at communicating what to expect and holds to what he promises. He put me in the driver’s seat the whole time. The sessions were all about me and what I wanted in order to heal or move forward. Dan leaves his ego out of it and I trust him completely.

My Story – in his own words

Waking Up

I entered this field, when after divorcing, I met a woman who introduced me to Tantra. Growing up in the South nobody every talked about sex in a way that was constructive, loving and pleasure-based. This was a whole new world that opened up for me. Having conversations about sex that are not sophomoric in nature, but connecting was amazing. I hadn’t realized there was more to sex than simply fucking. Don’t get me wrong I like to have intercourse as much as most people, but I soon discovered the beauty of enjoying the journey, having open conversations about different possibilities and desires, of being able to express my desires in a way that was of mutual benefit to me and my partner.

Change of Paradigm

A “Daka” is a male educator/healer/guide who has the capacity to remain objectively present and grounded while purposefully and therapeutically employing erotic energy to evaluate, counsel and address a client’s deeply personal issues regarding sexuality, intimacy and relationships. As I became more well-rounded in my education around practical sexuality teachings I evolved into a Daka. What I learned in my journey as a Daka was that women had it even worse than I had expected or believed. Culturally, pleasure and sex is only for men to receive; women are supposed to be there to support men’s pleasure. I think the opposite is true. There is an old adage that says “when momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy” and I believe that to be true. Women for centuries have been cast as the temptress and the cause of men’s evil ways. Most of the blame, look at our laws, target the women. The scarlet letter was for the woman to bear. This is a very patriarchal point of view. I believe women have as much right to pleasure and sexuality as men. Yes, women bear a harsher reality to the negative outcome of casual sex such as pregnancy, but I believe we are all responsible. Women need to be as educated about the pleasures, value and health benefits that pleasure brings. I have had clients that have slowly weaned themselves off of antidepressants when these doors have been opened (please do not take this as medical advice).

Engineering mindset

Being the engineer I decided to apply my engineering skillset to the bedroom to become the Sexual Engineer I am today. As a software engineer I worked to apply systems to building software applications through the science, practical knowledge, process and structures. I do the same things here. I now have over 15-years of practical experience to apply towards how to work with women in a way that will provide pleasure. I utilize the scientific studies I come across, tools (toys) to create a process and structure to my work. This in turn benefits my clientele because it is coming not from an ego-based place, but a practice that has worked more often than not. Yes, the human body is not a mechanical machine in the sense of what we typically think of as mechanical, but it is a system that has common moving parts that work approximately the same across most systems. My practice has been to integrate all of that together.

A voracious learner

My education took me to many places and from each teaching I took those things that I felt were relevant to supporting women in their growth as sexually empowered being. For example, I have learned that stillness is a thing. While many men are busy trying to do something that involves some sort of motion stillness can be very rewarding to a woman. Female Ejaculation (squirting) is also a thing. Most men like it because it means, to them, that they have actually been successful at something. On the other hand it isn’t always pleasant. I have learned the nuances to the different areas within the vagina that can bring intense pleasure in addition to stimulating the elixir of life or female ejaculate. These are just a couple examples and I’m always learning more.

Integrity is everything

In the world of #MeToo I have endeavored to remain as clean and high integrity as possible so I can create as safe a space as possible for women to grow into their sexual birthright. I have had the support of many incredible women to help guide me along this journey when I made mistakes and I have made them. Integrity is extremely important in the process of building trust between you and me. Trust is something that is earned over time and can be lost in an instant. Often men, in general, have lost trust with a woman. In order for a woman to have an orgasm they have to let go of the vigilance center in their brains. This means they have to be able to trust me to the point they can relax. If I do anything that shatters that trust it’s all over. I’m very proud of my integrity. I will do what I say and say what I do. Put me to the test.

My work, my practice

I call this a practice because my clients aren’t mathematical formulas that follow exacting principles. I am continuing to learn and apply teachings and skills I’ve learned over time in a way that addresses the uniqueness of each client. My clients require an ability to meet each one where they are. Over time I have learned to read the energy of my clients to help provide the best session I can deliver. I believe my success is attributed to focusing on what women want and not about what men think they should want. I patiently support women going through their process, which may involve tears, screaming, anger, etc. Most of all my practice starts off with building trust. Trust is something that is severely lacking in our society and in general with men and I know it, so I do everything I can to create a safer space and build that trust which is earned over time; not handed out like campaign slogans. I provide a loving and nurturing environment for women to thrive.
