I Love Female Orgasm®

I Love Female Orgasm® is a fantastic sex education program for adults. The presenters, Dorian Solot and Marshall Miller, are a team both on and off the stage who have extensively researched the topic of female orgasm and feel passionately about educating both women and men. I helped bring the program to the Northern New Jersey college where I work as a psychological counselor. It was entertaining and informational and struck just the right tone for the audience (not an easy thing to do).

As you can imagine, students came out in droves to hear about this provocative topic. Solot and Miller emphasized how much is omitted in most high school sexual education classes. And while we are taught about fallopian tubes and ovaries, other parts, like the clitoris, are completely omitted from the discussion. The presenters said, "It would be like trying to educate people about male genitalia with a illustration that left out the penis."

I thought that Solot and Miller made a very powerful point about female sexual pleasure—it is still a taboo subject. While females are frequently the object of desire in movies, advertisements, and other media, female sexuality is usually portrayed as passive. Female sexual pleasure is still a mystery to many people and that mystery is shrouded in misinformation or a total lack of information. Pornography further misrepresents female sexuality. So where do we turn for real information?

I Love Female Orgasm® : An Extraordinary Orgasm Guide is a recent and much needed book on the subject of female orgasm. Solot and Marshall's candid, no-nonsense approach is refreshing, and the information and research enlightening for young adults as well as older adults. The discussion of female sexuality is also inclusive of lesbians and transgendered people. Why should pleasure be relegated to heterosexuals?
