THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO ORGASM FOR WOMEN by Mikaya Heart

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO ORGASM FOR WOMEN

How to Become Orgasmic For a Lifetime

KIRKUS REVIEW

Heart (My Sweet Wild Dance, 2009, etc.) guides women through orgasm with thoroughness and sincerity.

At the beginning, the author writes, “I occasionally use the word fuck in this book, usually meaning the act of penetration. Like some of the other words we use when we’re talking about sex, it can have negative connotations and mean different things to different people.” Indeed, the author’s ability to thoughtfully approach sensitive issues while sharing just enough of her own personal experience will immediately set readers at ease. Without judgment, she tackles the taboo with respect for women and their individual perspectives on sexuality and fulfillment. Heart’s openness is most apparent in the section “The Spiritual Experience of Orgasm,” in which she discusses the relationship between the mental and physical self. When sharing stories about sexual abuse, she does so in a way that offers acceptance. She encourages “sex that requires healing. It requires that you have a sense of absolute autonomy over your body, and if you are going to develop that, you have to get in touch with what your body wants.”

Heart’s comprehensive exploration of the female sexual experience will be a poignant guide for women of all ages.
