THE EVERYTHING
®
ORGASM BOOK

Dear Reader,

What a gift for me to be able to share this information with you! I feel blessed to have this opportunity to write so much about a subject I feel so strongly about. I hope to make some difference in the lives of my readers who are searching for more information on a topic so rarely talked about at length in any real or informative way.

The path I have followed as a clinical sexologist has taken me to many interesting places and presented many new challenges. I have embraced this one fully with excitement and gusto, thinking of the lives I could touch and the sexualities I could help liberate and expand into whole new territories of discovery — and ultimately pleasure.

For me, the orgasmic experience is one of total release and surrender, and it has a life of its own. It too yearns for growth and expansion. It wants to find new heights and greater depths. This book is intended to support that growth and expansion so that your orgasmic experience can keep improving. May you find yourself in ever-increasing orgasmic bliss!

Acknowledgments

I would like to thank my beloved family, friends, lovers, and community who have encouraged and supported me through this entire book writing process. A huge thank you to my amazing partner, Tim Hartnett, for all of the faith, support, and guidance you have offered me throughout the years, not to mention the endless hours of editing you have put into this book. A special thank you to my dear friend, Andrew Davis, for your encouragement and all of your help with the orgasm survey; and to my beloved friends, Monica Woelfel and Rebecca McCubbin, for help with editing and finishing touches. Thank you to my dear friend, Carmen Alvarez, whose support and love for me holds me up and means more to me than she may really know. Thank you to Katrina Schroeder at Adams Media for finding me and for your steady encouragement and support. And tremendous thanks to all of the other pioneers and scholars in the field of sexuality, past and present, whose courage and insight shed much needed light onto a topic that has been kept in the dark for too long.
