Nicole Daedone is the founder OneTaste, which positioned itself as a wellness company that preached the practice of what she called “orgasmic meditation,” or OM.
OneTaste made $12 million a year at one point, and Gwyneth Paltrow and Khloe Kardashian sang Daedone’s praises. But eventually, it was revealed that Daedone was less of a wellness guru and more of a leader of a sex cult or a prostitution ring that exploited trauma victims and others that needed healing.
