"Mary Roach highlights a number of quirky vignettes illustrating the study of orgasm and the extreme outer limits of orgasmic response. The focus of our stigmatized sexualities lab is women’s sexuality. As such, our interests dovetail with Roach’s, but research has led us to perceive sexual matters in substantially more social and political ways. We have no disagreements with Roach’s presentation, but if we are to discuss orgasm, it seems crucial to examine the differences between women’s and men’s experiences, and in particular, misconceptions about women’s sexual pleasure and particularly women’s orgasms."
