Interesting quiz - and reasonably accurate at the top. I self identify as something like "demythologized Christian/Platonic/nondualistic Gnostic" - so the top results do intersect with my personal belief system in a number of ways. Certainly much (but not all) of New Thought which I studied extensively in my mid-twenties, and the inclination toward non-dualism of Buddhism and Christian Science (both would claim to be nondualistic in theory, but are not necessarily in practice). Taoism - only in the most abstract sense. With some of the religions lower on the list, I would rate them even less of a match than the quiz does.

I took the quiz, too. The most interesting result was that i have 0% in common with the Jehovah's Witnesses!

I started looking for a more spiritual dynamic in my sexual experience several years ago and was fortunate to connect with a local Tantric Healer.

Over the period of the next 20 weeks, 1 session a week it started becoming real clear of the high levels of sexual anxiety in my life. My teacher was 31 years old at the time some 30 years my junior. She was gorgeous, with a beautiful heart, first thing she taught me was come to the sessions with no agenda, everything was on the table, that was real hard for me but over time I started to relax, wow, what a difference. My erections other than early mornings were back on track and over the next 20 weeks she bought a transformation to my sexual experiences. I am now able to experience multiple full body orgasms without ejaculating, some lasting 15 minutes. For the first time in my life I was feeling sexually empowered and able to maintain my sexual energy without ejaculating for several hours.

Its changed my life and opened up a whole new world of sexual encounters.

Over this time I have read many books on Tantra, the best is probably anything my Margot Anand.
