KIRKUS REVIEW

Two sexual therapists tackle the problem of ultimate bliss, or rather, its elusiveness. They provide an eleven-step program for achieving ""self-stimulated"" orgasm (including ""tapering off the vibrator""), and for those who want the joys of simultaneity, there is a further ten-step program for achieving orgasm with intercourse. The steps are a sequence of vaginal exercise, relaxation, and conditioning techniques, some of which require the cooperation of a loving and patient partner (that, of course, is another problem!). Included in this demystification of the sexual response (the authors insist it's nothing more than learned behavior) is a precise outline of the physiology of orgasm and a discussion of some barriers which may block ultimate satisfaction (deficiencies of the pelvic muscles, clitoral foreskin adhesion, etc.), plus a critique of the errant conclusions of some high-powered sex theorists like Kinsey, Seymour Fisher (The Female Orgasm), and Edmund Bergler (who termed Kinsey's tales of multi-orgasmic women ""fantastic""). As for the regimen, it seems sensible, non-threatening, and according to the authors--it works! You've come, hopefully, a long way, baby!
