An Essential for Anyone Seeking New Orgasms

A great book that should be on all lovers' shelves - regardless of their previous experience. It provides all sorts of new techniques for manual and oral stimulation as well as positions with diagrams that will make following Paget's advice even easier. A well-presented read that will leave you wanting to buy her other books.
Diagrams make all the techniques easier, includes not-so-common methods of orgasm

extremely useful review
"Orgasms" by Lou Paget was actually one of the first instruction sex books that I ever picked up, and I can honestly say that I see why it's such a popular book. With 260 pages, this paperback book is a pretty easy read - only taking a couple hours start to finish. It's very light, and the pages feel almost papyrus-like. It does have "Orgasms" printed pretty clearly on the front of the book, so I wouldn't recommend taking this to work with you.

Chapter one, "The Big O", she writes about what orgasms mean to the modern world. She continues on with talking about what to expect from the chapters to come and why she wrote the book in the first place.

Chapter two is called "Debunking the Myths" with good reason: It's all about the myths that surround orgasm such as "simultaneous orgasm is more satisfying than those experienced separately" or "all women can orgasm during vaginal sex." It talks about some of the misconceptions that women have concerning squirting orgasms as well. She also writes a little about why "goal oriented" sex tends to backfire.

In chapter three, which is called "The Physical Side of Orgasms", she talks about the stages of arousal including little charts that show them. There's pictures of the male and female anatomy that resemble the ones you saw in health class - only more advanced. She identifies the pleasure points on both the male and female anatomy. With both male and female anatomy charts, she shows us what to look for to tell if a partner is aroused. She also explains what happens to both genders during ejaculation.

Chapter four is called "Clearing your Head". It generally touches on issues of communication and learning how to get over performance anxiety. She speaks about great ways to get your partner wanting to have sex.

"The Female Orgasm" is the title of chapter five. The great thing about this chapter is that Paget touches on all the different ways that a female can experience orgasm. Those ways include Clitoral, vaginal and cervical, G-spot and AFE, urethral, breast/nipple, mouth, anal, blended/fusion, zone, and fantasy. In each sub-section, she talks about the best way to achieve results with each different type. She even includes diagrams to help the male see first-hand where the best places for his fingers are. Paget also includes diagrams and instructions for the best oral sex and intercourse positions for the female's pleasure.

Chapter six is "The Male Orgasm". She also includes diagrams for this chapter although not as many. She does include, once again, the ways that males can orgasm. Those include intercourse, manual, oral, prostate and anal, fantasy, nipple/breast, and toys. This chapter also includes diagrams with step-by-step instructions on great techniques for giving handjobs and blowjobs.

Chapter seven is "Medical Concerns that Impact Sexuality". It just talks about the different disorders that can happen that will affect sexual performance. It talks about the male and female disorders as well as explains the background on why they are caused and how they can be fixed. Of course, Paget also focuses a couple pages on STDs.

Chapter eight is "The Beauty of Enhancers". This chapter includes uses for massages, aphrodisiacs, aromatherapy, lubricants, and of course - lots of information about sex toys. Of course, she recommends the Hitachi. She also touches on the importance of kegal exercises.

"Sex and the Spirit" is chapter nine. This entire chapter just touches on the basics of Tantra. It includes how to get started in it as well as diagrams depicting the different Tantra sex positions.

The last chapter is "Sexually Transmitted Diseases". Of course, this chapter just talks about the different diseases that can pop up during sex. She talks about what they are and how they can be treated. She then includes a resources chapter about the best places to find sex toys organized by area of the United States.

All-in-all, I love this book. It's a great addition to my collection, and anytime I'm feeling adventurous enough to want to try new techniques for orgasm, I just pop open this book. It's an easy read with diagrams interspersed to make sure that you're understanding the concepts that Paget is attempting to teach. It's a good read for beginners and advanced alike, although I would recommend it more for beginners since it teaches lots of valuable information that advanced users may already know.

It is, in no way, demeaning, though. Paget writes in a way that is welcoming for everyone, and it makes you feel comfortable while reading her book. I would definitely say this is one book that should be on everyone's bookshelves.
Great book, and I always pull it out when I want new techniques to try during sex.
Follow-up commentary
This is still an amazing book. If anyone I know is having issues with orgasm or anything, I always recommend this book. It offers amazing knowledge in a fun-to-read manner. I still haven't bought any other of Lou Paget's books, but I know I'll have to in the future.

Plus, I skimmed through it again the other day, and all of the information still seems fun and fresh - even though I've already read the book once. Great quality in a book.
