“Ahh, women’s orgasm… What do we typically read about it? It’s that moment of climax and release that eludes so many women. Some women fake it, and some simply do without. Some women have multiple orgasms, they say. Autobiography of an Orgasm turns all of that on its head. This book is thoughtful, personal, poignant and surprising. It will give you a great many answers, but much more important, it will show you that you’ve been asking the wrong questions. Betsy’s quest to “feel more” took her around the world, showed tremendous courage, and reaped rewards that went far beyond that fleeting moment that most of us think of as orgasm.”
