A Glimpse into Morehouse – Trainings in Pleasure
By Linda R. Gray
How does one develop the capacity for intense orgasms that last anywhere from one second to several hours? It’s not so difficult given that we are coming all the time, a fact that the scientific world is now proving.* How would your life be different knowing there was no scarcity of orgasmic pleasure? The feeling that you never get enough would fade, societal stressors that bombard us from all sides would lose their grip, and we would understand why, perhaps, the Buddha is smiling all the time…. The truth is that love, perfection, and orgasm are all the same thing. And life blessed us with nerve-laden body parts that let us tap into these exquisite states at will. You can also get to these high states doing yoga, jumping out of airplanes, meditating, perhaps having a near-death experience - anything that brings you fully into present time. But I’m talking about having these experiences - at will - through orgasm. While being in present time may sound straightforward, it helps, in fact, to have some training. Just like a samurai slicing through a raindrop with a sword - anything that takes mastery takes practice.
So, how does one train to be in present time in order to achieve intense orgasmic pleasure? It helps, first, to know that our brains are on our side, and that we are coming, at some level, all the time. So at least some of the training is getting out of our own way, approving to a greater degree of everything that is already happening. And some of the obstacles to this orgasmic intensity are our preconceived notions about sex, how right or wrong it is, how much or how little we could/should have, how connected it is with survival, with finding the right mate, whether children will result or not, what our parents, grandparents, and their parents thought about sex – we carry all these considerations, which can feel like limitations, into bed with us every time we turn down the sheets. The training involves starting to see that every obstacle and limitation that we have in our lives was created for a perfectly good purpose, and to the degree that we continue to use that limitation, it still serves us perfectly. But just as we let go childhood habits and behaviors that no longer serve us as adults, we learn that we can relinquish the limitations in our lives that would have us experience less pleasure than is truly possible, pleasure that is, in fact, our birthright. The training involves looking, with increasingly loving eyes, at the ways in which we construct the universe inside of which we live every day. It also involves getting to know our physical bodies as instruments capable of exquisite music, instruments that we can play, alone or with a partner, at any time of our choosing.
Morehouse uses the term “doing,” i.e., manual stimulation of the clitoris or penis. This means that two people have their attention on one person’s body. A certain amount of technique is required, but technique is far outweighed by our ability to pay attention, our ability to focus on a particular stroke in a particular moment, and to approve of what’s happening. Being “done,” Morehouse-style, which is the way I have been trained, allows me travel to states of physical, emotional, and spiritual pleasure that I couldn’t have conceived of prior to this training. What I am talking about, and personally experiencing on a daily basis, is rapture, experiences beyond words. In my early training sessions, in the Expansion of Sexual Potential course, I tried to put my newfound discoveries into words, and the teachers kept it simple. They asked, “It was good, right?” And I tried to say, of course it was good, but it was so much more than good! God Himself, and all His angels, and all His emergency back-up angels were there! It was, and is, nothing short of heaven on earth. I don’t want to get religious or to use religious terminology; that’s what occurred to me at that time and often still does. To me, being done by a trained doer is like being made love to by a god, or a lover that not only knows my body, but knows who I am, the innermost me, the me that gets to dance naked and unafraid.
Cindy Baranco’s response to one of my questions towards the end of my training put it together for me:
"Love, perfection, and orgasm are all faces of the same thing. Perfection is seen through loving eyes. To love a thing is to find it perfect, and orgasm is finding the actual stroke you’re experiencing perfect - that is, you love it... Being is fundamentally bliss."
The bottom line is knowing this truth, being aware of it, feeling it, and enjoying it. Morehouse has currently found no limit to the amount of pleasure we can enjoy.
