The Orgasm Answer Guide

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.

Reviews

"Presented in a question-and-answer format, The Orgasm Answer Guide covers everything you could want to know about orgasms but were afraid to ask."

- Janet Christie - www.scotsman.com

"Exhaustive, sweetly sex-positive, and funny in that unflappable science-nerd way."

- Elle

"Contributors, who are sexuality researchers and educators, give accessible, compassionate, research-based answers to 80 questions about orgasm. Good illustrations and comprehensive references complement a work that will be a valuable resource for sexuality educators and practitioners, and a great addition to the sexuality self-help genre. Highly recommended."

- Choice

"Beverly Whipple, sexuality researcher and coauthor with Alice Ladas of the international best-selling book The G-Spot and Other Discoveries about Human Sexuality, teams up with neuroscientist Barry R. Komisaruk and endocrinologist Carlos Beyer-Flores to illustrate a complete picture of one of the most electrifying and mysterious parts of human sexuality—orgasm. From the definition of orgasm to the effects of disease, aging, and drugs, to neurochemistry of orgasm and finally leading up to its connection with the brain, through this comprehensive and interesting journey, many questions about 'one of life’s greatest pleasures' are answered."
