Ben is a sex worker, feminist porn performer, certified permaculture designer, certified tantric counselor, author, film maker, and recording artist. He finds healing and empowerment through sacred loving arts, ecological gardening, shamanism, ecstatic trance dancing, martial arts, and open source technology. His ongoing short film series, Sexorcism the Tantric Opera, was launched in 2017. This work recounts the story of Ben's recovery from childhood sexual trauma, adolescent sex trafficking, and the path of the wounded healer. His first book: Psychedelic Goddess Worship: Erotic Memoirs from the Astral Battlefield will be released in 2020.
