What is an ultimate orgasm?

An ultimate orgasm is your personal best orgasm. It doesn't leave anything at the table. It doesn't want anything more. It lasts as long as it lasts. It takes as long as it takes. It's as messy and loud or quiet and tidy as you like. It has no room for shame or apology. An ultimate orgasm comes from questioning, exploring, experimenting, with no

Great book for all women. Brought to light how little most women know about our own bodies, and how most of us were taught to be ashamed of our sexuality in general. Fascinating information, and fun assessments! Thanks, Jenny!

An important book, but not a well written one. It's a strong polemic for women's sexuality in and of itself, unrelated to men and what makes men feel satisfied. Block says that lesbian sex and masturbation free women from male bondage, and makes a convincing case. She also takes it to the male of the species, pointing out that female orgasms are both longer and more frequent than the male kind. She is very strong on ejaculation or intercourse not being the be all and, literally, end all of sex, ...more

Книга представляет собой что-то среднее между журнальной статьёй и книгой типа «Becoming Cliterate: Why Orgasm Equality Matters—And How to Get It». Нельзя сказать, что это исключительно сборник статей из глянцевого журнала, но и к серьёзной литературе книгу тоже нельзя отнести. Тем не менее, это определённо лучше, чем тот тип книг, к которым относится книги такого автора как Violet Blue, чьи книги можно охарактеризовать как «расширенная жур

The pep talk version of an introduction to "female orgasm". As an introduction to said topic it's pretty solid, though I personally didn't gain much from reading this. It is extremely repetitive, which is only made bearable by the chattiness of the pep talk tone. Would recommend to sexually inhibited and inexperienced women who appreciates that kind of chatty buzzfeed tone in their non-fiction - if you're the kind of person who feels patronized or annoyed by that writing style you'll likely hate ...more

Easy to understand and full of good information!

To my surprise I already knew a lot of the general facts, which is odd considered that I'm a virgin and regularly not very sexual (I'm pending between asexual and demisexual). Because of that I also am very picky with my own body and I felt that a lot of the tips and tricks weren't ment for me, at least not in my current stage in life. The ones were she described things to do with your partner made me feel so alone haha!

But still a great book and I

Really good book on the topic of women and their needs. Certain parts of the book are heavy on "feminism". But instead of an equality desire, some of her tenets and assertions come across as misandry. Obviously men are not the target audience of this book, but I did codify many topics. ...more
