Jamie Peachey One of the goddesses in the "green Chakra room" at Phoenix Goddess Temple ​Phoenix Goddess Temple, the "sexual healing" church featured in the New Times' story Sacred Sexuality in February, was raided by Phoenix police officers Wednesday. Sixteen people -- five men and eleven women -- were detained for questioning. Among those arrested was temple practitioner Wayne Clayton, who is one of 12 people being indicted on grand jury charges including illegal control of enterprise, maintaining a house of prostitution, and receiving the earnings of a prostitute. Phoenix police sergeant Steve Martos confirmed that officers served a search warrant at the temple, located near 24th Street and Thomas Road yesterday afternoon. Sgt. Martos said not all of the 16 people being questioned are employees of the temple.

I’ve heard of masage parlors that give a hand massage, and charge extra for a “happy ending”.

This may be where Algore goes to release his 2nd chakra.

Funny, but not funny; the ONLY thing I want to hear out of Phoenix LEO’s is F&F stuff. If I hear so much as a PEEP about ANYTHING ELSE, then their priorities are screwed up.

I don’t care HOW steamy it is —when the POTUS is arming terrorists, then anything else is a distractive footnote.

Possible solution to the attendance and tithing problem?

So, obviously you were forced to read this.

Weird. Most sororities don’t charge extra.

Paying some Asian chick $50 is cheaper than any sorority girl and you don’t have to listen to her chatter.

I might have given the impression I resented your posting this —I didn’t.

I posted this because I know the media would be desperate to use ANYTHING to get public attention off of F&F.

I apologize.

Is there a 2nd Chakra Ping List we can join? Or maybe call it something else: “Ping” may not be the most appropriate sound.

One hilarious part of this is that the article quotes practictioners of the bogus discipline of “sex therapy” denouncing these “sef-taught” sex therapists. Psychologists are always good for a laugh.

I’d still sooner see these wackadoos set up shop rather than the LDS.

It was a guess anyway. I knew the second I walked into that place just to get out of the rain, the Lord would return at that moment.

Yeah, the LDS folk are real loonies and Jeremiah Right is a real savior.

You pay for it anyway.

When I was eighteen and decided to leave the mormon church, the bishop took a very nice looking mormon girl aside and told her the holy spirit wanted to use her to bring me back. I questioned why she was suddenly so attentive and she confessed everything.

So you tell me who the pimps and the whores are, smarta$$.
