The School of Erotic Mysteries

About Us


The School of Erotic Mysteries is dedicated to the finest, clearest, cleanest sexuality education possible. We teach all levels of sex education from those just getting started through to professional development and advancement.

We feel sexuality is a part of spirituality and we attempt to merge the spiritual with the erotic in all of our teachings and workshops.

Our team is primarily based in London and during the pandemic most of our work is online.

We are inclusive of all genders, races and abilities. We are pro sex workers’ rights and believe sex positivity and conscious kink are necessary for building a better world.

Please take a look at our courses, consider training in person  and get in touch if you’d like to deepen your understanding of the Erotic Mysteries.

Isik Tlabar

Hello! My name is Isik. I’m an empowerment coach, embodiment and breathwork facilitator. I got into meditation by the age of 8 and into the personal development world by the age of 14. I was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey. After studying architecture in the UK, I decided to build my own business in activating leaders, coaches, practitioners, visionaries, creatives into their mission and magnificence. My ultimate vision is to create a more beautiful world where humanity is thriving, everyone feeling empowered to live their truth and greatness. In my practice, I offer 1:1 coaching, breathwork sessions, online programmes, workshops and retreats. My journey in conscious sexuality started six years ago, with going into healing sexual shame and trauma coming from having grown up in a Muslim country. Having gone through my own journey of sexual awakening and liberation, currently, I’m a somatic sex educator and sexological bodyworker in training. Having a curious, courageous, open and loving heart, I have been involved in psychology, creative development work, shadow work, alchemy, shamanic practices, sacred sexuality, conscious kink, breathwork, conscious dance practices and more.

David McMahon

My name is David, Irish-born, currently UK-based escort and masseur, shortly to roam European capitals. I lived many years afraid of my own potential and power and ignorant of the importance of living a full and free life. I have been actively exploring Tantra and conscious sexuality for about ten years. I feel born again into joy , freedom, healing and growth through connection and sensuality. I love sharing what I have learned with others and learning from them new ways to understand the world and experience joy. I am particularly interested how we negotiate and navigate boundaries and consent, and how everyone of us can learn to do this with sovereignty and authority, not just in intimacy but in family, work, friendship and broader society. Receiving my Shamanic BDSM Practitioner Training with Seani Love especially opened my eyes and heart to how kink and BDSM can bring a delicious, inspiring and beautiful edge of power and surrender into human connection. I am inspired by the work of Carl Jung, in particular the importance of the archetypes in the integration of shadow on the Self's path to individuation and wholeness, and generally how these theories apply to the role of the masculine in contemporary society. I look forward to meeting you.
