AceShowbiz - David Joyner, who spent 10 years playing the lovable Barney the Dinosaur, has now become a spiritual healer and a tantra massage specialist. In a recent interview with Vice, 54-year-old Jorney talked about his new career, which he described as a job to unite his clients' mind, body and spirit through tantric massage and sex.
Joyner told the outlet that his session costs $350 and lasts three to four hours, during which his female clients can have a ritual bath, chakra balancing, a massage and a mind-blowing orgasm. "When the lingam [p***s] and the yoni [v****a] meet, there's a certain energy that takes place that hands on the body alone cannot create," he shared.
"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," he continued. "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."
According to Joyner, he learned about tantra when he was still studying at ITT Technical Institute and practiced it openly until signing his contract as Barney, when the show's lawyers made him swear not to teach, practice or talk about it in any way. Still, he found discrete ways to practice.
"They knew I was spiritual, and that I meditated. I often shared with the crew that the energy I brought up in the costume is based on the foundation of tantra love," he continued. "I always said it was never an accident, and that I was meant to do this character. Because a lot of the elements of Barney were a lot of the things I was training with in tantra."
He added that he would "pray and ask God to allow his loving divine spirit to flow through the costume" before he wore them. "That energy would always draw them in," he remarked. "Children are more connected spiritually than [adults]. A lot of times when I see infants and I'm out and about at the grocery store or whatever, they start staring at me. I make the joke, 'You know who I am.' "
Joyner began his practice in 2004, and there are possibilities that his business is illegal. This is because California state law prohibits "massage with the intent of causing arousal," which is considered solicitation.
However, Joyner isn't worried about being arrested for prostitution as he has a police officer friend who helped him write a contract, which all of his potential clients sign during the consultation process stating they're not law enforcement or part of sting operation. In addition, the first session is free, thus it is a private matter among consenting adults since there's no money being exchanged. Joyner called this his "legal loophole."
