“You can’t read this magazine and love the same old way. This magazine help me to look deeper, want better in my love life and I am grateful to read the articles. Update still loving the contents of each month.”

“I love this publication – as does my boyfriend. The topics are varied and very current/trending w both young and old. Very informative but not like reading an encyclopaedia. And I don’t know about you but when it comes to sex and sexual health- an encyclopaedia is the last place I’m looking lol. When more people catch on to this unique treasure – they’ll never let go. Price is VERY affordable considering similar types on the market. In other words – just pay these people. They deserve it. Original Review: This magazine is fabulous. Almost every issue has more than 75% articles relevant to my boyfriend and myself. Super awesome topics. Not raunchy. Not sexist. Just about humans and our need for intimate relationships. Love love love ❤️”

“Raw is the first magazine I have read every word on every page. And amazing pictures too!”

★★★★★ by Kickinthepantsproductions – Sep 30, 2014 
“You guys did an amazing job with this publication!! I live in LA and I am an actress. I am exposed to a massive amount of literature, scripts, etc. You have put together a way to educate both men and woman and also opened the door to discussion. I write a lot on the subjects examining relationship dynamics, natural selection, sex and the physical/health benefits from it, society restrictions, religious damage inflicted on people and all sorts of excellent topics that are not discussed enough in society. I bought this for my boyfriend who grew-up very sexually repressed and still is working out some of the kinks;) The way you write, the pics, the subjects/articles are perfectly done in the way it’s cheeky yet very serious and you have blended the two in a way that people feel comfortable enough reading and still take the info seriously… My boyfriend loves it and so do I!! I am studying testosterone at the moment. I would like info on the proper balance for men and for woman. It balances our hormones for health and youth, but if too much, can hurt us! Do you have any info on this subject? And how much sex is too much, in the way that men loose their “essence”? You should also do an article on Non-ejaculation orgasms for men. There is health benefits… Would love to see an article on this subject. I’m researching it myself. It’s a skill men HAVE to acquire!!;) It’s amazing for the woman and great for the man to save his “essence”! Thanks for your Mag!! KC”

“I can’t get enough! I received a subscription as a present and never fail to renew it. Each month varies and caters to such a wide variety of relationship status and interests. I’ve discovered so much personally and gained knowledge on several topics that were once just a slight interest. I highly recommend this magazine to all my friends!”

“I came across this magazine all by chance, I have never heard of it before.. Once I started reading the interesting articles, I was instantly shocked at how matching it is with my personality.. I’m not really a big fan of magazines, however, when I read this one i was completely taken away with the way of how they pulled these articles all together in one place.. Priceless, impeccable & simply, AMAZING !!”

“Thank you! Finally! A publication that is candid and tastefully written on a subject that most humans cannot candidly open up on and talk about…their own sexuality. Thank you for taking this “taboo” subject and making it comfortable to read about. Hopefully it will start to help people open up more when it comes to the raw subject of human sexuality.”

★★★★★ by Ourowngods – Nov 15, 2013

“Any app/mag that encourages education and thrives on bringing back the gentlemen in the male species is something I can back up. Plus, the fact that this mag also cares about world affairs and is willing to donate money for disaster relief shows that this mag and it’s employee and corporate force care about more than money in their pocket and are willing to help out. Good show Raw Attraction!”

Heart Initiation Academy Testimonials From 2015 onwards:

"The Heart Initiation Academy has provided a platform for personal growth in a way like no other I have come across! It provides information through inspirational mentors who share their tools and experiences to positively promote love, healing and a feeling of awesome well-being. I am so grateful to The Heart Initiation Academy for guiding me on this journey. Thank you!"

Rachel Keay

"I'd done some casual healing and therapy, but I never got any real results. Then I joined up with The Heart Initiation Academy. Wow! A whole new world has been opened up to me! In a short time, I realised what had been plaguing my entire adult life; a closed heart that I never knew was closed. Untreated childhood trauma that I had never addressed. The Heart Initiation Academy has provided me with the path I've been looking for, and even though I have only just begun this exciting new journey, Heart Initiation is now leading the way. I am now more myself, more confident, more loving (including self-loving), more giving, and overall happier with life!"

Andy Moore

"This course has been a blessing for me in every aspect of my life. I am finding myself changing how I approach every situation. Every time I move through the course, I am finding myself applying immediately to my life. This has also forced some heavy truths to come to light in regards to my personal relationships. I am currently on module four and I am so excited to continue the course and really start to heal myself so I can really follow my spiritual path."

Melissa Elizondo

"I would recommend this course to anyone who desires to experience more presence; drop into your body, hear inner wisdom and live your pleasure, power and purpose. I had many brain orgasms, lovegasms, and soulgasms throughout my Heart Initiation journey. In fact, I now can name, clearly map and describe the sublime dimension that I have been visiting since my childhood. I’ve had so much contact with it recently via Heart Initiation which makes even better portal. It was Magical! Thank you for this amazing experience ❤️"


"Have you ever had a situation where you could understand why it happened, all the mechanisms behind it, but still you felt that you were unable to let it go, that it still had a heavy pull on you? Using the tools they give you at The Heart Initiation Academy in these kinds of hard-to-shake-off situations was for me like unloading heavy baggage that I've been carrying around for ages, leaving me lighter and more at peace and also feeling that more space opened up for joy, for love, for gratitude. Honestly, it's been life-changing and words aren't enough to describe how well it works."

Ruxandra Cristina

"This course has provided me not only with the tools to grow but it has been doing more than anything has done before in my life. I learn to see the opportunities, the shadows, the present, the past, my body, my heart, all of ME with love. I am so happy that something like this exists and so grateful. I can feel the effects on me, but also in everything around me, the beauty is real, there is hope, love is the truth, this is a real university of life. I hope you don't miss the chance, it is a beautiful opportunity. I believe in these teachings with my whole heart and every cell in my body!"

Christine Maldonado

"This course is very educational and enlightening. There is nothing else like it. It will give you the tools you need to access a blissful state by helping you break through all of the outside influences that are present in your life. Steve and the teachers guide you through all of the aspects of love and sexuality that have become tainted and help you rebuild a strong connection to yourself which allows for a greater connection to others. I recommend it to everyone because there is an infinite number of ways that you can benefit from this amazing program."

Frank Mule

"It has been such a beautiful and profound experience for me. In such a short period of time, I'm already experiencing so much change. It's so beyond what I could have ever imagined. This work is helping me in understanding the deeper aspects of myself, how and where I was misaligned and what re-alignment and re-integration feels like. For the first time in my existence on this earth, I have found wholeness within myself. This has caused a tremendous feeling of peace, security, and balance in my life. Words can't describe how beyond grateful I am. This is something that is desperately needed on this planet. Everyone needs this. If everyone had this training and could understand it, what a ripple it would cause. What a world this would be!"

Dominique Pontecorvo

"The team here are doing the work of God on earth. All the evils on earth have at the core root cause a lack of Love. In a world scarce of Love and where sex is everywhere, most people never experience more than junk sex or years of abstinence. 

The people at The Heart Initiation Academy have created very high-quality material to support your journey in healing the wounds of your past, and creating conscious love in your life!"

Irina Goia

"The Heart Initiation Academy is an open door to the awareness and importance of love in ourselves. The courses address many issues, which so many of us struggle with, in a safe environment where one does not feel judged. It is a place where I am able to get out of my "mind" and be in my "heart" as I cultivate love. I strongly believe that for many, including myself, it has given us a place to belong, learn, and share our journey. It has taught me to embrace individual strengths, apply them to my life and learn from others' weaknesses. Yet, weaknesses are simple learning opportunities. Our life adversities make us stronger individuals who can help others in a compassionate manner! With genuine love, I am thankful for The Heart Initiation Experience as I walk my journey and learn that I am deserving and worthy of love. I have seen so many changes as a teacher, a mother, a daughter, a friend, and a citizen of my community and for those positive changes, I am thankful! Blessings Always."

Maribell Martinez

"Steve, your idea to offer knowledge and support of this kind in an accessible and comprehensive manner is incredible. It’s something that people really need, even if most of today’s world isn’t aware of that yet. Possibly because of that reason more than others, it was obvious to me from day one how difficult an achievement this must actually be for you. No one else is daring enough to offer something quite like this to the public, not yet. I think in time that may change. I pray that it does and that your efforts will be recognized in the light they deserve to be. Personally, I’ve been working through the tools discussed in the course for months. I never would have been able to understand how to approach my trauma without this course, it has saved my life, and it has proven to me there is hope for betterment. Everyone else has given up on me and expected me to give up as well, but your work showed me how to keep trying. And now I share what I’ve learned with my young son, so that he may grow up knowing what love is and break the familial cycle of abuse and self-hatred he otherwise would be destined to continue. No matter what your future holds now I want you to know how much of a difference you’ve made in my life. I want you to see that what you created was worth it. I wish you the very best, and thank you for everything!"


"Save yourself years of searching. While most courses introduce you to a single method or modality, The Heart Initiation Academy takes you on a complete transformational journey." 


"Your work is amazing. The speakers that did each module were brilliant. The content changed my path radically. I'm so blessed to have been able to experience the course. I was at a fork in the road and I was lucky to have found you. So my gratitude to you Steve & Heart Initiation Academy, you have changed my world. You changed many people's world. I love my life with no television, and never buy a newspaper because to be honest, sometimes I'm ashamed of my species. Thanks again!"
