Former members of OneTaste – an orgasmic meditation company that has been accused of being a cult – claim the upcoming Netflix doc ‘Orgasm Inc’ uses “stolen footage”.
The group, which calls itself “The Real People of OneTaste”, created a website, “Hey Netflix”, claiming that “the documentary was largely produced from footage stolen and sold to producers”, and includes “highly sensitive images and private facts of our lives WITHOUT our permission.
The site also includes a petition, which they say has been signed by 400 former members, further explaining that the images – which may include nudity – were “on multiple hard drives (covering the period between the mid-1900s 2000 and 2016), and sold by a former OneTaste employee to a Netflix producer for money without our knowledge, permission or consent.
“We have given specific and exclusive permission to OneTaste to film our participation in certain classes and activities solely for instructional/educational purposes,” the petition reads.
“Some of these classes were intimate for us and parts of the material could represent some of us in various stages of undressing, in OM practice or in other contexts. In some cases, this includes extreme close-ups of our genitals,” he continues.
OneTaste has been described as a sexuality-focused wellness education company that practices orgasmic meditation, or “OMing.”

A Bloomberg report claimed that “former staff and community members say OneTaste looked like some sort of prostitution ring – one that exploited trauma victims and others seeking healing.”
“In some members’ experiences, the company used flirting and sex to attract emotionally vulnerable targets. He taught employees to work for free or at low cost to show their dedication. And managers frequently ordered staff members to have sex or OM with each other or with customers,” the report said.
OneTaste has called the claims outrageous and members of the new website call them “false and horrific”.
The band is asking Netflix for “written assurances that none of the footage…will be used, broadcast, broadcast, sold, or exploited in any way,” and that the streamer “will not use our names, any audio recordings of us, any photo of us (blurred or otherwise), any video of us (blurred or otherwise), or any image or video of our body.
The doc is out November 5.
A Netflix representative had no comment.
