We wrote this book because orgasm is a remarkable phenomenon and one of life’s most intriguing experiences. We take a different perspective from that of recent books addressing various aspects of sexual behavior and orgasm, such as those by Bancroft (1989), Kothari and Patel (1991), Paget (2001), Rodgers (2001), Bodnar et al. (2002), Margolis (2004), Hyde (2005), and Lloyd (2005), and from that of the review articles by Meston and Frohlich (2000), Meston, Levin, et al. (2004), and Mah and Binik (2001, 2005). We address the body systems that act in concert to produce orgasms; discuss various ideas about the function of orgasms and why orgasms feel good; defi ne the many types of orgasms, such as “nongenital” orgasms; and address sex differences and similarities, effects of aging, pathologies of orgasms, effects of hormones and drugs, and the neurology and brain control of orgasm.
