About Why I OM

“Why I OM” is an initiative of the Institute of OM (IOM), an education company dedicated to helping people increase health, happiness, and connection through Orgasmic Meditation (OM). Why I OM shares the stories and inspiration of thousands of men and women around the world who have found profound healing and transformation through this evidence-based practice.


Orgasmic Meditation (OM) is a unique wellness practice that combines mindfulness with the power of the deeply human, deeply felt experience of Orgasm. During the practice, one person strokes another person’s clitoris for 15 minutes with no goal other than to feel the sensation. That’s it. It’s a new category of experience, practice in an intimate experience, that most of us haven’t experienced before. It isn’t foreplay. It isn’t a clinical exam. It is a whole new approach to wellness.
