The Science of Orgasm

JAMA. 2008;299(6):701-702. doi:10.1001/jama.299.6.701

It used to be difficult to obtain reliable, current, scientific material on sexual health until I added The Science of Orgasm to my library. It is certainly worth the space and the price. The Science of Orgasm is an excellent, well-written assembly of the current scientific understanding of not only the phenomenon of orgasm but of sexual pleasure in general. The fact that sexual science is in its infancy, partly because of lack of federal funding, does not diminish the value of this book. On the contrary, the 358-page, hardcover book addresses most of the questions frequently asked by patients on sex and orgasm.
