Closeness became my favorite podcast from the first sound of Tari’s soothing voice. He draws you in with auditory pleasure, then stimulates your mind by speaking eloquently and honestly about the topics you’ve been dying to know more about, but too afraid to ask your friends. It’s so refreshing to find a place to get real answers about sex and relationships, without any judgement. I love that the podcast is so inclusive, as Tari speaks to those in all types of relationships (whether you’re single, dating or married) and sexual orientations. Tari is part sex coach, part talk show host and part erotic novel hero. He’s the type of person whose mere presence elevates the people around him, causing them to become more aware, present and relaxed. His voice is soothing, his smile is genuine and his advice is based on both experience and principles that work. Tari is also extremely sensitive to the specific needs of individuals and I find it highly refreshing that as a man, he has a deep understanding of what women want. Through my own conversations and experience with Tari, I’ve felt heard and understood, never judged. I highly recommend connecting with Tari so that he can help you experience more closeness with your partner or partners, and ultimately, a deeper relationship with yourself.


This podcast came to me at a great time of life.  After leaving a 6 year relationship that became very unhealthy, I have been reintroduced to the dating world. Tari’s topics are interesting and I find myself listening to several at a time. I usually come away with a new perspective or an ability to explain something that is important to me with another person.

So much yes! First off, I love the shorter format of each episode. It keeps me engaged and interested throughout. I wanted to say thank you to Tari for offering conversations and experiences about connection and intimacy that are real and raw. I love that he explores it in a way that’s safe, authentic and makes me think.


I invested in Tari’s is coaching package as a gift to myself and my wife as we were nearing our anniversary.  When we met with Tari for the first time, we were a bit anxious and uncertain of what he would ask and how we would feel. Within the first five minutes we were put at ease and could tell that Tari was a classy, heart-centered individual who has a passion for helping couple’s experience closeness and connection at the highest level. My wife and I began to share stories of how we met, our history of ups and downs and our questions. Tari was a gentleman and guided the conversation into areas that we could explore safely while still touching on topics that we otherwise would never have had the boldness to do by ourselves. I have experienced many more coaching sessions since then and will continue to do so as I am seeing amazing results in my marriage.  Now my wife and I continue to discover things about each other that we’ve never known, even after years of marriage and multiple children.  I am finding that we are getting that spark back into our marriage that we had before we had children. I would highly recommend anyone reach out to Tari for an open, candid conversation to see how they can improve their Closeness connection within their current relationship or to ready themselves for an emotional connection when they welcome in their next romantic relationship.


I met Tari in person, and from the first time we spoke, I felt like I could tell him even the most intimate of things without judgment. I can honestly say he has made a meaningful impact in my life through his podcasts, and even more so through our one on one interactions, which, candidly, are some of the most meaningful and authentic one on one interactions I’ve ever had with a person. Tari offers a judgment free zone–and I can’t stress that enough–to discuss and process any number of issues. Among other things, he has personally helped me (and continues to help me) overcome deeply rooted insecurities and their effects in my relationships. He is so truly gifted in his ability to listen, understand, and advise. If you’re struggling in relationships of any kind, from sex to self-love, see Tari, you won’t regret it!


I love the podcasts on Closeness! They are fun, engaging and perfect for any person who thinks they know everything about sex, hahaha!  Just when you think you know it all Tari will chanllge this belief along with many others about sexuality. His podcasts always show both sides of the “subject stick,” I believe he calls it, and provides multiple insights on all topics discussed. He surely speaks from experience and has gained my trust as an intimacy expert/trustworthy coach in just one podcast (which I’ve listened to twice actually.  If you’re curious check it out it’s called Deep Listening, The Oral Sex Edition. An in depth exploration of how to go down.


The Closeness podcasts dives into conversations most of us will never have, or even think to have, yet are incredibly needed.  Sex and intimacy can be polarizing topics, but with Tari they’re an open forum to discover what joys await each individual, should they so desire.  The way he approaches both the viewpoints and experiences of both males and females is useful to further understand how we can bring more fulfillment to our sexual partner(s). After each listen, I feel less self-judgement and more openness, and of course, closeness, to myself, my partner, and humans in general. Thank you Tari for sharing your insights and experiences with the world!


This podcast has had a profound impact on my intra-personal and inter-personal experiences.  I turn to these episodes whenever I feel a need for guidance as I go through my life and Tari never lets me down.  In three words: Smooth, like butter.


LOVE because I totally relate to these topics and they are  VERY informative and NECESSARY for all who want growth towards CLOSENESS.  We ALL have different opinions but Tari does the best job at eliminating as much bias as possible and opening us all up to infinite, helpful, elevated perspectives. JUST DO IT. Listen.  Feel hella intrigued.  Real life closeness help…

Tari’s Voice has become a soothing, wise and experienced friend.  A touchstone of deep life experience, conversations of sincere respect of both sexes, thoughtfulness and a truly balanced point of view that I believe remarkably represents both male and female behaviors, thoughts, feelings and experiences uncannily well. Tari is a gifted thinker and speaker. He has a rare and important message and as this podcast reaches more and more people it will no doubt impact so many lives and relationships in such profound meaningful ways. Listening has made me  question and reassess so much in my relationship with my husband. Tari has encouraged me to re-ask myself, “What do I need from my partner?”   “What turns me on?”  “What qualities do I admire and respect a man?”  What specific things aren’t working for me now and what can I identify that I am not clear on an expressing? All vital questions to ponder and find answers to if one wants to powerfully create anything such as a fabulous fulfilling relationship with others in life. I feel lucky to have this show in my life and get so excited for new releases. Each one thought-provoking, nourishing and so refreshing.   If you haven’t already, subscribe NOW and get ready to laugh, smile, shift your perspective, ask yourself questions, grow… And in all honesty, probably be really turned on sometimes too 😉

I found the Closeness podcast to be a beautiful and intriguing look into not just sex and relationships but human interaction as a whole. Tari’s take on life and love are sometimes fascinating, sometimes breathtaking, and always deliciously candid. It’s Smart, sexy and has challenged and evolved the way I look at intimacy. And his deep sultry voice doesn’t hurt either!

Tari’s podcast was thoughtful well spoken and current. So many of us, male and female, feel as though we are facing a dating culture that is unprecedented and completely off its rocker, and Tari touched on so many of the issues of most concern. I felt his insights to be wise, compassionate and helpful for both genders and I look forward to seeing how his message continues taking shape in the word.

Closeness is a gentle and eloquent look at sensuality, sexuality, and why it is so important. I’m a new listener and can’t thank Tari enough for diving into these topics. In a world where disconnect is all around us, it’s beautiful to see someone striving to bring us back together.


Tari’s talks on relationships, sexuality and the art of dating in the modern world are both provocative and profound.  He provides advice and personal experiences with creating intimacy and communicating effectively (and affectionately) with your partner or love interest.  He is easy to listen to even when he traverses into controversial territory. His podcasts are relevant and thought-provoking. This appeals to singles as well as those who are in committed long term relationships. The content is informative, engaging in dynamic.

Tari has a strong radiating presence that is balanced with both energy and calmness. In my first experience with Tari I noticed he has a natural connection with everyone he meets. Very rarely do you meet people like him. His intuitive touch and knowledge of the human body makes him a natural healer, teacher, and amazing acro yoga instructor. With Tari’s strength and experience, I knew within moments I was in good hands. The whole experience with Tari was so much fun and made me feel so at ease.

Tari is a true joy to practice with and is knowledgeable, supportive, and fun-loving.  The way in which he consistently strives for enjoyment and excellence in all areas inspires others around him to do the same.    He helped to show me aspects of myself that I either wasn’t aware of or needed extra confidence with, and he spoke and acted with kindness, compassion, and encouragement.  He’s also fully honest about who he is, and he openly shows himself to the world.  This leads others to be drawn to him and to be comfortable with him. Tari is fully present as both a student and a teacher, and he is a sponge for new knowledge.  His understanding of the body and his own body-awareness help him to coach others and show them just how much is possible.  He teaches that so much more is possible than we believe.  It’s extremely easy to find a friend in Tari, and he’s a pleasure to spend time with.  If I didn’t live on the opposite coast as him, I would definitely try to spend more time with him – as a friend, a student, and a co-teacher.  If you have the opportunity to learn with Tari, I highly recommend it.

When I first met him, I knew from the start that he was so special.  It’s a blessing that Tari’s amazing personality gets to shine through this website and all the events he creates. Tari knows what life’s about and works daily on living it to its fullest, I think that “thriving” is his motto.  Always open to share his numerous passions and experiences with the lucky people that surround him, you’re immediately touched by his generosity and his natural ability to make you feel comfortable and at ease. Tari is the right person for you if you’re ready to see life from another perspective if you’re ready to open up… and simply blossom.  He will warmly welcome you in his unique world with an open mind, a very kind spirit and that thirst to discover yours. I’ve experienced that myself and let me tell you that there’s nothing he doesn’t accomplish in his daily life without grace and delicacy. This is Tari, a person I trust, a friend very dear to my heart.

My friends and I had the fantastic opportunity to stay at Tari’s beautiful and tastefully appointed estate one summer ago for two months. When it was time to reflect back on what had happened, it was clear that what we experienced had been far beyond our expectations. And all this was mainly for one reason: because Tari is an amazing,  generous person who knows how to take good care of others and who loves to share. I’d say he has been gifted with a gracious personality and the power to make everyone (and I do insist on the “everyone”) feel very comfortable and at ease when he is around. Tari always knew how to keep us entertained and we got the chance to experience all of his specialties.   He, for example, knows how to use techniques your body will respond the best to. Tari really feels into what you like and we got to enjoy this relaxing/magical experience many times, for our greatest pleasure. But above everything, Tari is a very charming and warm-hearted person, who is very inspiring on many levels and has numerous skills that he loves to share.

Can’t say enough good things about our experience with Tari.  He made us feel so comfortable- even with our limited experience. He was flexible and customized the session to fit what we wanted to learn. He ended up introducing us to couple’s therapeutics- life changing!

My wife and I worked with Tari when we were in San Diego for a wedding and had a fantastic time.  He is extremely knowledgeable and worked with our limited schedule. Well worth the time. Thanks Tari
