The man who used to play barney the Dinosaur in PBS Kids' hit show, now runs a tantric sex business! As RadarOnline.com has learned from Vice reports, David Joyner went from kiddy show actor to tantra massage specialist and spiritual healer.
For $350, Joyner, 54, has unprotected sex with his female massage clients, all after giving them a ritual bath, chakra balancing and full-body pleasure.
"Connecting your mind, body and spirit together as one, in perfect harmony. Achieving a higher and more blissful state of awareness to your sexuality, and who you are as a spiritual being," reads the description in his Tantra Harmony website.
When asked about his controversial practice, Joyner told the publication that he penetrates his clients without protection because condoms "block the energy." He does, however, provide his STD results and asks that his clients do the same before engaging in sexual intercourse.
According to Vice, other tantra coaches claimed the ex Barney actor's methods are highly unorthodox and his reasons for penetrating his clients as "shady" and "ridiculous."
Explaining his bizarre practice, Joyner told the outlet: "When you go down on a woman (orally), it should be just like you're saying grace, like blessing the food you're about to receive. No food in the world can compare to goddess nectar because spirit is involved. Before you taste the goddess nectar, give thanks. Say grace. I would love women to understand how powerful that energy is."
"When the lingam penis and the yoni vagina meet, there's a certain energy that takes place that hands on the body alone cannot create," Joyner continued during his talk with Vice. "Even through G-spot massage, it's still not the same energy that flows."
Speaking of his time as Barney, the former PBS staffer said he was attracted to the character because it was innocent, pure and full of love. He also loved connecting with children, because he felt they understood him and his energy better than adults.
"I always said it was never an accident, and that I was meant to do this character," admitted David Joyner. "Because a lot of the elements of Barney were a lot of the things I was training with in tantra."
