Owning our desires should be neither embarrassing nor uncomfortable. Nor should they be subject to anyone else's moral judgment of what is right or wrong, good or bad, normal or abnormal. Combining communication and information is the key. By shrugging off the taboos against talking about our preferences and experiences when we're being sexual, we will take the first and most important steps toward ensuring our own fulfillment. The Ultimate Guide to Orgasm for Women is an unflinchingly honest, responsible, and thoroughly comprehensive exploration of female sexuality. Topics include: The physical types of orgasm, such as electrical, flying, pounding, deep, waves, and blips; orgasm as an emotional release; the "elusive orgasm" and why some women have difficulty having one; how often we fake them and why; masturbation; multiple orgasms; the male-female dichotomy; penetration and the G-spot; defining the erotic; and the joy of sex toys.

She has personally been studying the art of being human since she was very young, seeking truth and genuine meaning.

All her work is about learning how to be fully human, living with love and compassion. She uses shamanic journeys to help people access what she calls the vastness of being: that ninety-nine percent of reality that is unseen, and contains huge potential. Her greatest desire is to help others to be fully who they are by creating and embracing positive changes. For more information, go to
