There are many ways to experience self-love. You could meditate, write about it, and now, thanks to Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle (THTH) we’ve found a new way to do so.
If you’ve caught up with Netflix’s (not-so-regular) reality dating show, THTH, you may have come across an episode where the ladies were made to strip down in order to gain self-love.
In the show, where good-looking participants are placed on an island and tasked to abstain from physical intimacy, the women go through a ritual known as Yoni Puja. Yoni what?
“Yoni” is the Sanskrit word for vulva or vagina, and “Puja” means to worship. The phrase is said to refer to a sacred tantric ritual that originated from India.
Relationship and intimacy expert Shan Boodram explains in the show that the ritual is “truly about owning who you are in this very moment, feeling good about that, and drawing inspiration and power from it.”
Feeling inspired by the emotions and outcome experienced by the THTH participants, I decided to try it.
There are different ways to approach the yoni puja ritual, but I mainly followed the process which the participants on the show went through.
