The Orgasm Answer Guide


The Orgasm Answer Guide Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Orgasm Answer Guide answers common questions many people have about one of life's most fascinating experiences.

In an accessible question-and-answer format, four of the world's leading sexuality experts address every aspect of orgasms: how they happen, why they don't, and what can be done to enhance sexual experiences. The authors provide clear and informed answers to more than 80 common questions, including:

- Can an orgasm cause a heart attack?- Does childbirth affect orgasm?- What is the G spot?- How can I tell whether my partner is faking an orgasm?- Do orgasms end at a certain age?

The all-star author team includes neuroscientist Barry R. Komisaruk, bestselling author and sexual health researcher Beverly Whipple, BBC sexuality talk-show host Sara Nasserzadeh, and Mexico's leading sex researcher, Carlos Beyer-Flores.

Credible, readable, and easy to follow, The Orgasm Answer Guide tells you everything you ever wanted to know... but were afraid to ask.

Major Magazine Coverage of Komisaruk, Beyer-Flores, and Whipple's The Science of Orgasm: Esquire; O, The Oprah Magazine; Glamour; Women's Health; GQ Italy; Self; Elle; Men's Health; Cosmopolitan U.K.

Book News Annotation:

Writing in simple yet scientific language guaranteed not to offend anyone in any way, Komisaruk (professor of psychology, Rutgers University) answers 80 common questions related to orgasm, drawing on the latest research. The book addresses anatomical, cultural, psychological, and life cycle issues, and offers practical suggestions on everyday topics (What can we do if my partner or I can't achieve orgasm?), as well as information on interesting research issues such as nongenital orgasms. The book is basically vanilla flavored, although there is an entry on how sex-change surgery affects orgasm. Separate sections are devoted to women's and men's orgasms, with an additional section on the geography of the female orgasm, as well as sections on the how and why of orgasm, and orgasms and health, relationships, and culture.
