 The Mastermind Behind the new musical Sex, Love & Yoga

 Sexual-Spiritual Healer: Dr. Stephanie Torres

What do you get if you mix Kundalini yoga and sexology? What you get is Dr. Stephanie Torres, Holistic Sexologist, who uses a body, mind, and spirit approach to healthy sexuality. And if you mix Dr. Torres with musical theater, then you get is a new musical that fuses sexology, yoga and sex. She is the mastermind behind the creation and production of the new musical Sex, Love & Yoga that is based on her true story and sex therapy for all.

Why sexology?

“Didn’t become a sexologist because I looooove sex, although I love sex. It’s more that I was sexually assaulted when I was 18 years old […] and that threw a monkey wrench in my whole life. I’m 53 now and back in those days people [girls or women] didn’t talk about sex. . .we were really repressed, and if you were a fundamentalist Christian [like me] then you were really repressed. It created a lot of problems because I couldn’t talk about it. Then I went on a journey to find my wholeness and it was because of that journey that I did a ton of therapy and work on myself. I was able to articulate my thoughts, my feelings around sexuality, my body and my life. I also had a lot of challenging relationships. I was married and divorced three times and out of all of that I realized that […] I wanted to go back to school to get a degree [in sexology]. I knew that I could help people.

What is the true story behind Sex, Love and Yoga?IMG_3628

“I had moved away form Los Angeles for 25 years, then I got a strong sense that I needed to move back to LA where I was from. I moved back here and I had a really hard time connecting. I was guided to go to a Kundalini yoga class, I hated yoga, but it was not like anything I’d ever done before. And within a few months I had to partner up with guy and suddenly I had this intense experience: I felt like I knew him, I felt like I loved him and I had this intense attraction to him. He was 20 years younger than me . . .and he was gay. […] I couldn’t stop thinking about him so I googled him, then I befriend him and then I told him ‘my ex-boyfriend was a tantric master […] and I know a lot about red tantra, would you like to learn and you can teach everything you know about the yoga side of it? I know you’re gay, but it doesn’t matter, there’s stuff you can do, right? […] well there’s things you don’t want to do and there’s things you might want to do so let’s try it.’ And he said, ‘okay’. So we started a sexual relationship and I was attracted to him, but he was not attracted to me at all. So we had to work around that. […] [but] we both had this spiritual connection. […] So after a while my friends asked ‘what’s going on with this guy, what are you doing?’ And said, ‘I don’t know, I’m exploring something.’

 What was the process from inception, page to stage of Sex, Love & Yoga?
IMG_3381

“One of my gay friends said, ‘Oh my God that’s a play! You should write a play.’ And I said, ‘Yea it’s a play.’ So I bought Playwriting For Dummies and started writing a play. I went back to school and I told one of my teachers and he said, ‘You could make that your dissertation.’ […] I said, ‘Okay, I will!’ I came home and wrote like mad. And over 9 months of intense yoga, and a lot of meditation, I completed the play. Then I did a table read, people loved it. But it was kind of crappy because I wasn’t a playwright.

I put an ad on Craigslist for a producer and director—I got nothing. And then about a month later somebody [Kate Sullivan Gibbens] e-mailed me with all this experience that was exactly what I was looking for—she had a BA in directing, a master’s in playwriting, she was four blocks away and she’s a lesbian and I was like ‘oh my God.’ She read my play […] and she said, ‘Could I rewrite this play?’ and I said, ‘Yea.’ […] So we got together and we started writing it. And she wrote it. And I wrote music too, but I wasn’t a songwriter so she just started writing it. And it was perfect!”

How is sexology integrated into the show?

“Everyone has a sex problem. [So] every character has a sexual challenge that’s all interwoven around the main character. I want people to come watch it, be laughing, be entertained and also think, ‘Oh my God that’s me!’ […] The plot all unravels around the main character that’s based on me as a sexologist. The main character in the show gives a lot of advice to her friends, and it’s all good advice.
Everyone is in the show is dealing with some sort of sexual thing—so for me it’s chock-full of teachable moments. I’m even writing the program with supplemental material for people who are watching the show. When people are watching the show they’re going to get triggered. IMG_3405Even in the reading the actors got triggered, and I told them I was available for confidential consultations if they needed help. There will be questions to ask yourself [in the program] about how this show could impact you. There are also two [sexology] exercises that I use that are woven into the show. And I even put these exercises in the program so anyone can take them home and try them. If you come to see the show, you’re also getting free sex therapy.”

What do you want audiences to come away with after seeing the show?

“I want the audience to come away feeling inspired that theater has this amazing ability to get people talking about sex, and not just titillated, but talking about real sexual issues that affect everybody. Issues like sexless relationships, sexual assault, sexual identity, and sexual exploration. […] I want people to say ‘Wow after seeing the show, I can talk about the show and not about myself. This show opens the door: I want people talking about sex and I want people going home and having sex.”

Why are musicals, art, books, and poetry about sex important to society?11811452_833809110060247_8491538906071038255_n

“Sex in the arts is a way the world can learn, talk and deal with sexuality. ‘Cause we’re not going to go make an appointment to talk with a sexologist, but we are going to leave the show and talk to the person we came with. The arts break the taboo. Right now the only thing that has broken the taboo is mainstream TV that makes watching porn okay. Can we see some depth? Can we see some humanity?”

Are you aware of this year’s Tony winning musical Fun Home, another musical that like this one that’s has a team of women behind it, and that’s about sexuality?

“I caught wind of the Tony’s that happened the night before I met Kate. And she told all about the significant of Fun Home’s five Tony’s awards. Soon after I had to go to New York to help my son get an apartment for school and when I was there I said I’m going to see Fun Home. I talked to somebody and they said there’s no way, it’s been sold out since the Tony’s. But there’s always a way, right? I’m one person; they got to have one seat. So I went to the box office early and I said, ‘I’d like one seat.’ They said, ‘we have one ticket, fifth row.’ I got my ticket. And I was blow away! The subject matter completely dovetails my show—it couldn’t be more appropriate.”

Dr. Torres then pulls out her Fun Home key chain and remarks about the keychain, “It says not just a new musical, but, a new kind of musical. And what I hear in that is it’s also a vehicle for change in our culture. We all love the old musicals, but isn’t it about time that theater be potent like that. That’s what I want my show to be.”IMG_3149

Sex, Love & Yoga opens for previews Friday August 14 and runs through August 30th at the MACHA Theatre in West Hollywood. Additionally, this show has partnered with My Friends Place, an organization that assists homeless youth; and Kundalini yoga studio Indigo Lab LA. I’ve only heard one song from the show, but I like what I heard, so come laugh, cry, meditate, learn about yourself and take in some free sex therapy on stage.IMG_3638

INTERVIEW: DISCOVER HOLLYWOOD MAGAZINE Suzanne Birrell

I had the opportunity to visit with Dr. Stephanie Torres whose story is the inspiration behind a provocative new musical, Sex, Love & Yoga, written by Kate Sullivan Gibbons and includes music from Snatam Kaur. The story is about two people who meet and fall in love. A cosmic connection, soul mates with just one problem. He’s gay and she’s not.

Stephanie was working towards her Doctorate in Sexology when she shared her unique story with her professors. Because of the unusual coupling: gay man-straight woman, she was encouraged to turn it into a play as her dissertation project for her PhD. Originally, she wrote the play herself, but realizing that her talents did not lie in that area, she welcomed meeting Kate Sullivan Gibbens. With a Master’s degree in playwriting and a Bachelor’s in Directing, Kate had the chops to take Stephanie’s story and make it into something magical. She put the love of life, which Stephanie literally radiates, onto the page and up on the stage. Realizing that there were moments that felt in need of song, Kate wrote all new original music. With a true generosity of creative spirit, Stephanie let Kate to write and direct the play, even adding new characters, while she became the play’s “Creative Sexologist”. Stephanie crafted the story with Kate to give each character a sexual challenge to overcome. As resident sexologist, Stephanie even offered private sessions to the cast and crew, knowing tha material was powerful. “There’s actually so much to laugh about. It’s funny. And charming. And also quite heavy at the same time.”IMG_3574

Sexology is the study of what people do sexually and how they feel about it. Ideally, it’s being able to remain neutral and non-judgmental when dealing with sex. Because she is a Kundalini Yogini, Stephanie focuses on the body-mind-spiritual aspect of sex. The arc of each character’s story is as it relates to sexual wholeness. The play is intentionally crafted to present an honest look at everyday sexual issues. Stephanie hopes that seeing this on stage will help people open up and talk freely about their own sexuality, even if its only with the person they came to the show with.

IMG_3633Though there will be simulated sex (but no nudity or violence), Stephanie reports the “real kicker” is the intimacy, which she defined as “into me you see.” To talk openly about sex is quite taboo in our culture and that’s what makes this show so provocative. “Sexual rights are human rights… The story gives people permission to talk about their sexuality… We have this illusion that other people are perfect and the truth is that nobody is… it’s time we all start feel comfortable talking about ourselves and what really matters”. She knows people are uncomfortable with sex and she’s okay with that. She’s hoping many will resonate and identify with the issues presented on stage.

Stephanie wanted to tell her story so she could become the poster child that she had once been searching for. After being sexually assaulted at knifepoint as a teenager, she felt like many other women do: that she was “damaged goods” and less valuable. Though she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts, married and divorced three times, and had two children; she was unable to talk about it for many years. She went back to school to earn her Ph.D. in a subject that had crippled her as a person for most of her life because she wanted to help others like herself. Stephanie says that her play came through her meditation and her yogic practice. She hopes that it will inspire people to have the courage to deal with their sexual problems and wants to liberate people to be who they truly are.IMG_3570

If her play is as entertaining and educational as visiting with Dr. Stephanie Torres, it’s sure to be a hit. She was entertaining and uplifting with her stories. I learned. (BTW: the way to ask a transgender person how they’d like to be identified, is to say “What is your preferred pronoun?”) Her energy is contagious. Her heart is large and her smile radiates through her eyes.
