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!
These handy, accessible books give you all you need to tackle a difficult project, gain a new hobby, or even brush up on something you learned back in school but have since forgotten. You can choose to read from cover to cover or just pick out information from our four useful boxes.

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.
