The actor who used to play the popular children’s TV character Barney is now a tantric sex guru, he told Vice News in an interview Tuesday.

David Joyner, 54, the actor who played the friendly purple dinosaur character in “Barney & Friends” from 1991 to 2001, now has a tantric sex practice and is a tantra massage specialist and spiritual healer, he told Vice. His clientele is strictly female-only, and he helps women achieve mind-blowing organisms with $350 sessions, which last from three to four hours at his practice, Tantra Harmony.

Tantric sex is a practice first started by Buddhism and Hinduism which aims to make intercourse a spiritual and meditative process.

Joyner has 30 clients — he calls them “goddesses” — and claims that “when you go down on a woman, 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.”

While his current practice seems quite different than appearing on a popular children’s TV show, Joyner alleges that there are similarities, saying “everything stems, grows, and evolves from love.”

“Before I got into the [Barney] costume, I would pray and ask God to allow his loving divine spirit to flow through me through the costume and let that draw the kids. That energy would always draw them in,” Joyner said.

According to Joyner’s mission statement on his website, he aims at empowering a woman’s spiritual goddess energy, and started studying tantric sex at age 20.
