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.
