Diana Richardson

Diana Richardson is known as the pioneer of the Slow Sex movement and, along with her partner, Michael Richardson, is the creator of the life-changing weeklong Making Love Retreat, which they have been offering in Europe since 1995.

Diana was born in South Africa, where she completed a six year Law degree (BA.LLB) after finishing school. She then trained as a massage therapist and bodyworker in the UK and later in the USA, and is a teacher of holistic massage and deep tissue rebalancing. She has been engaged in the body and involved with bodywork for the last 35 years.

From 1985 onwards, while living in India she began a personal research and inquiry into the union of sex and meditation - the basis of tantra - an ancient body of knowledge originating in India.

She wrote her first book in 1996, published as The Love Keys in 1999, and then later republished as The Heart of Tantric Sex, a best seller. Since then has written a further 7 books on the tantric approach to love and sex. These are translated into German, Spanish, French, with certain books translated in Russian, Korean, Czech, and Estonian.

Two books, Tantric Sex for Men and Tantric Love: Feeling versus Emotion, are co-authored with her partner, Michael Richardson.

Diana has also co-authored a book for young adults with Wedy Doeleman in Holland, called Cooler Sex. As yet not published in English. German (title: Cooler Sex), French (title: Cool Sex) editions available.

Diana's most recent book, published in April 2018, Tantric Sex & Menopause - Practices for Spiritual and Sexual Renewal - is co-authored with Janet McGeever from Australia.



Diana is now based in Switzerland with Michael, where they continue to guide couples in the art of slow, conscious sex in their highly successful Making Love Retreats.

Diana was invited as Tedx speaker to Linz, Austria on February 10, 2018, where she gave a 17 minute talk encapsulating the essence of her approach. Uploaded onto Utube 2 April 2018.
