Barney The Dinosaur Actor Is Now A Tantric Sex Specialist Who Charges $350 A Session And Only Accepts Female Clients
Rebekah Sager at VICE reported that David Joyner is a tantra massage specialist and spiritual healer. Joyner charges $350 for a four-hour session and only accepts female clients. He currently has 30 clients or “goddesses” as he calls them. He also prefers not to use condoms because they “block the energy.”
Joyner wore Barney’s costume from 1991 to 2001 while another actor named Bob West did his voice.
Joyner says being tantric sex specialist isn’t so dissimilar from playing Barney. The love brought on by the Barney costume is based on the foundation of tantra, which is love.
Barney Actor David Joyner Says Sex Isn’t A Necessary Part Of The Practice
A lot of times when people think about tantra they think it’s all about sex. Well, tantra’s much more than that. Because tantra deals with loving energy, life force energy, and energy that rises through your system.
None of Joyner’s clients said they felt pressured into having sex with him.
Joyner’s Tantra Harmony website reads in part:
It is time for women to understand their true worth and the true essence they have to offer to the world. The true spirit of a woman that lies within, must now take its true and rightful place and shine its light for all to see.
After the media outlets picked up the story, Joyner posted on Facebook:
When I was approached to do the interview, I was told the article would capture the spiritual side of Tantra & my Spiritual Healing Practices. To shed a more positive light on the benefits of its accent practice and teachings to those who don’t know much about it. But of course, it didn’t come out that way.
