The Actor Inside Barney The Dinosaur Is Now A Tantric Sex Teacher
For most of the '90s, Barney the Dinosaur was the most beloved T-Rex on children's TV. And the man behind the fangs was David Joyner, who spent years inside a costume teaching kids how to love. And now he spends all his time inside adults, teaching them to love.
Joyner didn't start out life wanting to dress like a prehistoric eggplant. After graduating from ITT Technical Institute, he worked as a software analyst for Texas Instruments for six years. But he soon found his true passion: spreading love. Which he achieved by becoming the suit performer for Barney. But now Joyner spreads a different kind of love, via the 30 (exclusively female) clients he caters to in his tantric massage studio. For $350, Joyner will spend hours bathing, massaging, and balancing the chakras of his "goddesses" until they reach only the most enlightened of orgasms.
How do you go from smooth-crotched purple dinosaur to grandmaster of the G-spot? Well, for over a decade, Joyner had to jump and dance inside an uncomfortable 70-pound suit that often got as hot as 120 degrees. He used his tantric knowledge to keep this up for hours on end. But that energy wasn't just for him; it was for the kids as well. "The energy I brought up [while] in the costume is based on the foundation of tantra, which is love," he later said. Anyway, that sentence right there is why he's probably on like six different secret watch lists. And now we are too.
Heroes' Masi Oka Became An Acclaimed Game Developer
Heroes asked the question "What would happen if you crossed the X-Men with Lost?" It's too bad the answer was "a confusing mess everyone bailed on halfway through." Still, the show lasted four seasons and launched many careers. And that includes Masi Oka, who portrayed the time-traveling swordsman / massive nerd Hiro Nakamura. And it seems that while playing those parts, Nakamura found his true calling: professional gamer.
