Before the days of “abstinance only” education there was ‘sex ed,’ a sometimes silly but always uncomfortable curriculum taught as an afterthought in your high school health classes. Aside from the basic lessons on genitalia function were intructions on birth control tempered with the wagging finger of doom and gloom should we ever have the need for it. Apparently pregnancy and disease were always the result of premarital sex 100% of the time always and forever amen! The pleasures of the flesh were taught after class by the experienced kids who would share outlandish tales of marathon fucking with always willing girls and their guys with 8 inch cocks who could last all night. Of the two approaches, neither was very realistic.
Tristan Taormino obviously went to high school in the same era I did. Her line of provocative sex ed videos would have gotten us all to sit up straight and pay attention, showing us the score on how to score and the what and why that goes with it. The subject matter on one of the entries, Expert Guide to Female Orgasms, available at babeland, should be standard in every high school sex ed curriculem – just ask the girls in class! They live in a world far removed from Hollywood where the boys are all premature ejaculators who fumble their way through 30 seconds of the best sex of their lives but leave their partner confused, conflicted, and unrelieved. “Was that it??”
Using demonstrations from couples of differing ethnic and sexual orientation (diversity – just like in the real world), Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Female Orgasms shows how women can give themselves orgasms and, more importantly, how their partners can give them. We’re not only told about differing positions and techniques to achieve the ‘big O,’ we’re shown them – with real couples. There aren’t any overblown porno fake orgasms, either. Each situation results in (presumably) a real climax for the woman. Additionally, and I think most imporartantly, the couples aren’t perfect human specimens. They’re real people. And through them the psychology of the female orgasm is revealed, not just the physical aspect. Of course, what sex ed instructional would be complete without the ‘old school’ biology class images showing cutaways of the sex organs? Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Female Orgasms has these and they’re a nostalgic reminder of the days when sex was sanitized in our classrooms.
In our society a lot of attention has been paid recently to the female orgasm – from books and magazine cover stories to prominant themes on TV shows and mainstream movies. You’d think guys (and women) would get the hint – our orgasms should be the holy grail of sex. Unfortunately too many women still report not getting the satisfaction they deserve in the bedroom. Expert Guide to Female Orgasms is Tristan Taormino’s contribution to changing that.
