Jason Tantra is a pioneer in the field of tantra for men who love men. With 18 years experience in creating tantra events with love, intimacy, sex, connection and spirituality, Jason has led over 16,000 people across Europe and the United States. “I love to create spaces where I witness men in their ecstasy and in love. When that happens, there is more truth in those moments than anything else I see around me.”

Jason will be your host for this event where you are guaranteed to feel love and connection with other participants.

Dillon Diaz is an award-winning adult entertainer and alumni. Diverse is the word best used to describe his catalog. Whether it’s gay, bi or straight sex, it’s all about the chemistry and sensations for Dillon. “Working in adult entertainment has given me the opportunity to explore my own sexuality and get to know my body and spirit better. I am all about breaking down boundaries and enjoying the sex that I have, whether it’s with my partner or on set. Now I’d like to share what I’ve learned.”

Matthew Shur is a stubborn slut, a funky fag, and a goofy geek—but with lovely shoes. He discovered the power of conscious connection back in the summer of 2019 when he participated in the first Tantra Retreat. Together with eight men from around North America and two tantra coaches, he filmed a series of erotic films with the intention of empowering, affirming, and uplifting other men who would later bear witness. The videos captured men of different backgrounds learning, practicing and experimenting with tantra in a sacred space while cultivating a sense of authentic loving community. Matthew considers this a transformative, life-changing experience.

In October 2021, Matthew stepped into his role as an in-person facilitator at the first Himeros Experience retreat. He led men of all ages as they laughed, cried, danced and harnessed the whole-body power of their sexual energy. He has since gone on to collaborate with as a writer and sex & intimacy coach on five different shoots! If you had told Matthew five years ago that he’d be holding space for pornstars and offering them tools to embody their own authentic pleasure, he wouldn’t have seen that cumming!

John Baldwin completed his first tantra workshop more than 10 years ago - and knew it was the beginning of something beautiful. Through his continued journey, John has met some amazing human beings and has felt so much love in all directions. He wants to share that same love with others, and offer something back to them. Becoming a massage therapist and body worker has allowed John to do that. One of John's massage teachers gave him lasting advice: It's all about intention.

While these workshops and playshops involve intimate contact between the participants, everyone will have the opportunity to express their boundaries - and we will ensure a safe environment for all participants. You'll never do anything that you don't want to do.

This retreat is not a sex party or orgy; it is an opportunity to respectfully explore your sexuality, experience pleasure and connect with a community of like-minded men.


Your ticket includes lodging and delicious meals for the duration of the retreat. You'll be able to select from different accommodation levels depending on preference and budget. You'll also have access to Easton Mountain's grounds including the wood-fired sauna. Airport transfers and airfare are not included.


If you cancel at least 4 months before the event, you'll receive a 50% refund.

If you need to cancel your ticket within four months prior to the event, no refund will be given. This is because we have made financial commitments on your behalf to the venue, chefs, teachers and other suppliers for the event.


The Himeros Experience will not tolerate any form of aggressive or inappropriate behavior directed at teachers, masseurs, venue staff or other group members. Any such behavior will be addressed and, if not rectified immediately, could result in you being asked to leave the retreat. If you are asked to leave, no refund will be given.
