Review by Christian Perring, Ph.D. on Apr 7th 2003

Orgasm

This pocket-sized book has 116 factoids or hints concerning sex and orgasms mainly aimed at women.  Some are gleaned from scholarly sex research – the Kinsey Institute that more women in their thirties have orgasms than women in their twenties, and more people have sex at the end of the day when they are tired and have recently eaten, and it would be better to use the morning hours.  Testosterone levels are highest when we first wake up.  There are also many tips about G-spots, neglected erotic body parts on men and women, sex positions that are more likely to result in female orgasm, and a few tips about how to deal with stress.  But there’s very little detail and no diagrams, and so the book is really more for fun than people really looking for help.
