The revolution of female pleasure – sexuality and orgasm
- Odile Jacob
In this book in the form of a reportage, Belgian writer Élisa Brune brings together a wide variety of voices on the subject of feminine pleasure: doctors, scientists of all stripes, therapists, educators and a gallery of characters who tell of their personal experiences. It goes from sex-toys to trantrism, passing through sadomasochism, gigolos, swinging or plural loves. So many ways to understand and experience feminine pleasure.
This book is of a rare density.
On the one hand, it provides an incredible synthesis of scientific knowledge on the anatomy of the pelvic region, the female orgasm, female ejaculation, etc., as well as an inventory of research in these areas.
On the other hand, it plunges us into the intimacy of so many anonymous people, guiding us into the immensity of sexual practices and tastes.
This book was for Judith the first dive into the world of female sexual pleasure, the discovery of her clitoris and an electroshock. For Iris, it was a glimmer of hope, a relief and an opening of the field of possibilities.
And for both of us, the starting point of our search for sexual pleasure.
