A step-by-step guide for women to explore being multipli-orgasmic. -- Lou Paget, Best-selling author of "How to Be a Great Lover "and" The Big O." Publisher's Weekly, 5/9/05: For women who seek "heightened spiritual consciousness" with their extended and multiple orgasms, the coauthors of The Multi-Orgasmic Man and The Multi-OrgasmicCouple prescribe a series of meditations and exercises from the Chinese Taoist tradition. The authors' inclusive language speaks to all women, regardless of age, sexual orientation, relationship status, orgasm tendencies or level of experience with meditation. The good, basic information (including a thoughtful bibliography and appendixes) on general sexual health and wellness emphasizes holistic approaches to maintenance and treatment, and the primer on thefundamentals of chi (energy) provides a solid overview of the theoretical basis for the methods developed to cultivate and use this energy. Achieving multiple orgasms, however, requires a considerable commitment to mastering the challenging practice of stimulating and directing sexual energy throughout the body (although the simpler meditations and breathing exercises will help even beginners to relax). There are also many more specific techniques for "self-cultivation" (the Taoist term for masturbation) and detailed instructions for developing stronger pelvic muscles than can be found in many sex manuals. However, those new to meditation may find the complicated visualization sequences difficult to follow (e.g., advanced techniques involving stone eggs may seem too bizarre for some readers).
