What to expect from a tantric puja / workshop with Monique Darling and Peter Petersen

Landing back in London after a year of being away, I casually asked on Facebook what’s happening in the city. A dear friend told me about some tantric event held by Monique Darling and Peter Petersen the next day, so I went to check out their profiles. Quick and honest review of Monique and

Ghosts, breadcrumbers and f.boys, do we even date real people anymore?

I’ll let you in on something personal - I’ve never really dated. From the age of 16 I’ve gone from having one serious relationship after the next, lasting at least 1-5 years each.
