Product Description

From Amazon

Did you know that women can orgasm in 10 different ways, and a man in 7 different ways? A new book from sex educator Lou Paget is always a delight. Her frank, positive attitude and sprightly style make her books a pleasure to read. Her other books have focused on the total sexual experience--this one zooms in on the "Big O": orgasm. Of course first you have to understand how your body and your partner's body function sexually, how to build seduction and foreplay into your lovemaking (no matter how long you've been together as a couple), the importance of communication, and myths you need to dispel, so don't expect a whole book of lovemaking technique. In chapters 5 (women's orgasms) and 6 (men's orgasms), she gets to the techniques: lots of them, and clearly illustrated with line drawings.

Paget also includes spicy and amusing facts, such as, "Back in the Middle Ages, straight pubic hair was a sign of too much masturbation, which presumably accounts for the wide popularity of miniature pubic hair curlers at the time," and "In 1930 there was a nude indoor bicycle race in Paris in which each woman's goal was to be the first to orgasm from rubbing on the seat."

Lou Paget is also the author of How to Be a Great Lover: Girlfriend-to-Girlfriend Totally Explicit Techniques That Will Blow His Mind and How to Give Her Absolute Pleasure: Totally Explicit Techniques Every Woman Wants Her Man to Know. Though some information from earlier books is repeated in this one (who minds a reminder about our differences, or an illustration of Ode to Bryan, AKA the Penis Samba?), most is new, or presented in a new way. You'll enjoy The Big O--and so will your partner! --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

Paget is the author of two outstanding sex manuals: How To Be a Great Lover (for women, about men, LJ 1/99) and How To Give Her Absolute Pleasure (for men, about women, LJ 1/00). The Big O (for both men and women) draws highlights from both of those works and offers new information from psychology, health and medicine, and spirituality. But the result is too little about too much, especially in the medical chapter. When does failure to get an erection become a problem? What is "low desire"? Why does delayed ejaculation appear in the premature ejaculation section? Why is nerve-sparing prostate surgery mentioned with "enhancers" rather than in the medical chapter? What's a "Sybian vibrator"? Paget's interdisciplinary approach doesn't gel, and some of the writing and editing is sloppy and vague. Paget shines when describing sex techniques in her first two books, which libraries should buy instead of this. Martha Cornog, Philadelphia

Format: Hardcover
The Big O. is a concise easy to read overview of human sexual response and how to get to the finish line. Lou Paget does an excellent job organizing and giving you all the information out in the world today about sexual release for men and women. This is her third book and written to both genders unlike her previous books which were written for gender specific.
In 260 pages Ms. Paget manages to give you 'The Big O' from conception to completion with some fun stuff in between. 'The Big O' will definitely bring you up to date on the physiological aspects of your important parts to achieve orgasm. Ms. Paget manages to do this with in the realm of education and not being crude.
She also touches on the very important aspect that [love making] begins in the head and the brain is the larges sex organ. She touches on the mental aspects of boredom, anxiety, and arousal.
There are chapters dedicated to both men and women were she describes the different and numerous kinds of orgasms available to both men and women. Both these chapters give you some very specific how to's on achieving orgasm. By far I would say those two chapters will hold your interest and you will want to experiment using some of her ideas unless you knew them already.
Of course no book written on the subject of sexuality is complete today with out a chapter on the medical concerns of [intercourse] today. Ms. Paget has two chapters one dedicated to discussing fitness, depression, desire, and menopause along with diseases that effect sexual response and outcome. She also has a chapter dedicated to sexually transmitted diseases.
Included in her book are chapters on Fun Stuff to try: aphrodisiacs, massage, aromatherapy, exercises, and other toys.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book to be very condescending in tone. The author tends to drive the same point home over and over...and over and over. (How many times do I need to be told that the mind is the most important sex organ? It sunk in after the first 5 times--I didn't need to be reminded in every chapter.)
The author tries to cover a lot of area, but doesn't provide depth in any of them. For example, when describing different sexual positions, she relies a great deal on illustrations to get the point across, and provides very little textual description to enhance your understanding.
There are much better sex guides available, I suggest you pass on this one. Take a look at The Guide to Getting it On instead.

This book has made the impossible possible. I, a man, would rather GIVE pleasure than receive. Now that is impressive...
I am the type of person who picks up any book about any subject and delves in, and this book was no execption. I received it as a gift, sat down and read the section on female orgasms, and since then the reaction from my lovers has been amazing. I have to admit, I have seen more pleasure given by me than I have recieved, reason being, my partners have been unwilling to take the time to read and reciprocate, which breeds some jealousy...but, that is another stort altogether. Simply, this book is just about all encompassing. There are sections on mental health, physical health, medications, dysfunctions and disorders, and of course, SO MANY techniques. Do you want to blow the mind of your lover? Read this book.
I am not a spokes person. I am not paid to write this. I am just encouraged by the sheer magnitude of orgasmic pleasure that this book has readily available to teach.

Format: Hardcover
I'm a huge fan of Lou Paget's other books: How to Give Her Absolute Pleasure and How to be a Great Lover (my girlfriend and I have the books and the tapes). This is what led us to buy the Big O, but we were disopointed. It's pretty much a rush job that seems to be a repeat of her last two books. Most of the same information is repeated, but phrased differently. It also dosen't cater to male orgasmims much at all. It's more of a guide for women in doing their part to help their man orgasim as opposed to helping men cultivate their own. Paget has a lot to teach and she has helped our sex life a lot, but this book wasn't all it was cracked up to be. If you've read her last two books and want to learn more, perhaps another writer with a different approach would be refreshing. But make sure you get her other two books first!

Lou Paget has done it again! She keeps putting information, exercises, and techniques together for men and women in a concise format that leads the reader (and their mate!) to MORE pleasure! I think ALL of her books should be REQUIRED reading for college! She has the knowledge and bibliography that manages to match many that I either own or have read over the years! If you want the latest on Orgasms and sophisticated loving-look no further! You GO Lou!

Format: Hardcover
Paget's book, though not literature by any means, provides a fascinating overview of the human orgasm. The author also provides walk-throughs of various techniques, some with illustrations, to spice up your love life, or for those solitary pursuits. A fun book to keep on your shelf -- just in case.
