Annie Sprinkle has been exploring sexuality and orgasm for over thirty six years, from her early years as a porn star and prostitute, to her current incarnation as a sex activist, filmmaker, performance artist, AIDS educator, and Ph.D. sexologist. One of the first women to inspire the term “sex positive feminist”, Annie describes herself as “metamorphosexual”, and brings her years of sensuous experience and knowledge of the pleasures and diversity of orgasm to this film.

Annie plays host to 26 “sexperts” on the topic of orgasm, inviting them to share their experiences and theories on orgasm as an introduction to this vast topic with the viewer. There is one type of orgasm that most people encounter, the tension/release type, but, according to these sexperts, there are, in fact, multiple (if not hundreds) of ways to experience orgasm. For women, these include clitoral and inter-vaginal orgasms, dream-gasms, microgasms, breath and energy orgasms, and Annie’s favourite, megagasm (she experiences her famous 5 minute orgasm on screen). Other sexperts describe laugh-gasms, fake orgasms, outer-body experiences, orgasms that are experienced giving birth and upon death, spiritual orgasm, fusion orgasms, full body orgasms that run through the charkas, g-spot orgasms, tantra orgasms, multiple orgasms, hour long expanded orgasms that take one to different levels of consciousness, cosmic orgasms, orga-bumps orgasms that transfer orgasm energy all over the body, and fear-gasms. The film shows a diverse range of people experiencing orgasm through masturbation, GLBT and hetro sex, sadomasochism, and disability. Other experts talk about the physiology of orgasm and the stages of arousal.

The film is structured into segmented interviews with the various sexperts describing their experience as they talk to the camera, montaged and super-imposed over archival footage of orgasm (often their own) with swirling new-age backgrounds. These special effects are sometime dizzying and distracting, and often kitschy, and although it was the filmmaker’s intent to make the subject playful and less clinical, it also serves to show the sexperts in a less credible light. Still, this film is an amazing and fascinating introduction into the world of orgasm|Annie Sprinkle's Amazing World of Orgasm and a must see for sex educators and orgasm enthusiasts.

    I'm glad it shows more than just heterosexual couples getting off.

    Annie's films are always sexually diverse and gender inclusive, which is a plus with her work.
