The Big O

A new blog about what women really want from sex, founded by US-based “Sylvia”, has gone viral (The Times).

‘How to Make Me Come’ is a space where women can post anonymously about their sexual encounters, including what they liked and didn’t like in the bedroom. It covers everything, from lack of communication to the time it takes to orgasm, and despite its serious message, can sometimes make for a humorous read. Interestingly, currently more than half of the blog’s readers are male.

So, if there’s one thing ‘How to Make Me Come’ points out, it’s that there’s still a long way to go when it comes to female pleasure.

According to Dr. Ian Kerner, men have always valiantly struggled to elicit the female orgasm, but rarely ask “what do I do?”

Dr. Ian Kerner’s She Comes First is an encyclopaedia of female pleasure, with dozens of techniques for satisfying your female partner. Complete with illustrated, step-by-step instructions, this fun, informative guide introduces a new era in sexual relationships, where, importantly, the exchange of pleasure is for mutual fulfilment.

“Before you give up on oral sex… if you yourself don’t know what the options are… get yourself a copy of Ian Kerner’s manifesto She Comes First: The Thinking Man’s Guide to Pleasuring a Woman and make sure your boyfriend reads it too… It is a veritable paean to the art of good oral sex, packed with instructive sentences… I cannot recommend it highly enough.”
Suzi Godson, weekly sex and relationships columnist for The Times

We also publish Wilhelm Reich’s The Function of the Orgasm, one of his most important works that explores the emotional functions of the body’s energy metabolism.

Function of the Orgasm cover

Over twenty years, Wilhelm Reich, a psychologist and doctor of medicine, studied the relationship between the emotional, physiological and physical functions of biological energy. He saw the orgasm as the key to the body’s energy metabolism, discovering that the biological emotions governing the psychic processes are themselves the immediate expression of strictly physical energy – which he named the cosmic orgone.

Initially derided, Reich’s theories are now seen as crucial to our understanding of ourselves. In appreciating why the orgasm brings a feeling of physical and emotional well-being, we can also gain insight into the physical and emotional ills that result from a thwarting of this bioenergetic function. Many researchers into psychic energy believe that the aura recorded by Kirlian photography is nothing less than the manifestation of Reich’s orgone energy.
