Anita DeFrancesco, M.A., is an intimacy and relationship educator whose focus is on the evolution of spirituality and sexuality. She teaches others to awaken from separation and suffering and to embrace the modern world with oneness and love by liberating and letting go of grudges. She has been featured on Playboy’s Sexcetera, as well as on Fox and MTV. She is the author of Live Free: Your Journey to a Liberated Life.
This holistic and tantra educator first “opened her heart” in 1966. Hospitalized for six months with rheumatic fever at the age of nine, she found herself the only white child among African-American children in the hospital at that time. She began healing when she opened her heart to her feelings and began loving her hospital mates. Later, she met the rock star “ Sting” and had a long conversation about Tantra and how it helped his marriage. The path was being carved out. She knew her mission was to teach people love, sex, intimacy spirituality and how to love oneself.
After working as a massage therapist and intensively studying yoga and dance movement therapy, she went on to study contact improvisation, acting, and took pelvic healing classes to understand the male and female parts. Her subsequent study of Reichian therapy and bioenergetics breath work added depth to her knowledge of the orgasm and tantra which literally means “to weave together many different things”.
Her professional career as sex educator began in the 90’s, with an emphasis on Tantra Yoga. As a resident Los Angeles the last 20 years she is presently bicoastal living in both Philly and LA.
She is comfortable teaching all types of groups and loves teaching “breathing” and “pelvic undulation” which connects the pelvic chakra to the heart chakra.
Her most memorable teaching experiences included helping a student get off of heroin. “After years of chemicals he finally found love within himself,” and saving the marriage of a couple who studied with her, “I helped them find more love with each other rather than hate.” Another experience was a man age 50’s who after tantra breathing became more flowing ( brought back the squirt) in his ejaculation stream which was suppressed for years.
