Deported over ‘orgasmic’ yoga
– A Canadian man has been expelled from Bali for offering an “orgasmic” yoga class after Indonesian authorities said he disrespected local traditions and values.
Christopher Kyle Martin was deported from Indonesia on Sunday after he promoted online a “Tantric Full Body Orgasm” class for €20 (about R300). The promotion went viral on Indonesia’s social media, irking some conservative groups.
“This activity potentially damages the reputation of Indonesia and Bali as a tourist destination, and is disrespectful of Bali’s customs,” Bali governor I Wayan Koster said on Sunday.
“If you want to come back here, you have to respect Balinese custom,” the governor told him.
Bali Immigration Office confirmed that Martin, who entered Indonesia in April on a tourist visa, had been deported for disrespecting Balinese culture and traditions. According to the immigration office, Martin argued that the yoga class would not involve any sexual activity and mainly focus on breathing technique.
