Book Description

This politics of pleasure story revolves around the question of whether there really is another level of female pleasure called morgasm. Two sisters trying to save each other explore a sex coaching group that makes some dubious claims.

The story is written so as not to be exploitive of either its characters or its readers. More than just a fun read, it offers a fresh lexicon of pleasure for those readers sophisticated enough to appreciate its subtle implications.


These are some quotes from some of the reviews:

"a good book for a Book Club discussion"

"The term 'sponge crushers' is intriguing."

"very tongue in cheek with plenty of humor"

"a fast-paced mysterious storyline"

"the twist at the end was great"

"liked the original voice of the narrator"

"the author must be a really good listener to be able to put such smooth and authentic internal dialogue together"

"subtle clever prose"

"I could tell from the start that this wasn't going to be business as usual"

"sure to stoke some controversial fires"

"it was just like stepping inside somebody's head"

The author's previous work, the Wall Street "gang of spielers" novel ZombieStop Parade has been favorably reviewed by the likes of, Midwest Book Review, Hartford Books Examiner, San Francisco Book Review, Bookpleasures, The U.S. Review of Books, and The New Podler Review, among others.

I enjoyed this ebook on two levels. On the first level, I enjoyed reading about the aspects of female sexuality including women deserving more orgasmic pleasure than men. And on the second level, I enjoyed this book at the story level about one sister who got sucked into the cult-like phenomenon of Morgasm's beliefs about female sexuality, female empowerment and relationships and the other sister who endeavors to rescue her via intervention. Ministry of Morgasm is also intriguing because it can be read as a book about the dangers of trying to rescue someone from a fanatical type of cult, where the rescuer (the other sister) becomes somewhat seduced by what the female sexuality ministry is about, too. I'm sure some of you reading my review probably know about a few of the different self-help, love and relationship programs which have been popular over the past decade. The Miracle of Love and The Forum came to my mind. In some ways this book is a satire about love, relationship, self-help and empowerment "programs" that essentially want to reprogram members and get them to spend more money on seminars, membership donations, reading materials, etc. Cults and programs like these are generally dangerous and financially self-serving. The one sister obviously wants to rescue the other sister from the fate of this cultish group, but finds some of the Morgasm doctrine appealing. No spoilers about how the story resolves except to say that this book was an interesting read and I recommend it to anyone who would enjoy it on any level! This book would also make a good book for a Book Club discussion!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, Unlike Anything I Have Ever Read!!! February 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
The Ministry of Morgasm is a very different book from most you'll read and I say that in a positive light. I'm still talking about it days afterward to my friends.

The premise is simple in that the narrator is trying to psych herself up to go to a free meeting of Morgasm, which she believes is a self-help, cult-like organization that purports to understand women so well that it will change their entire life for the good, make their marriages better, and send them to otherworldly places in the bedroom.

The narrator is a skeptic, but agrees to go, but only to keep watch over her sister who has obsessive compulsions. What eventually happens in the book is quite the unexpected twist that makes this such a delicious treat.

Throughout the book there are tiny signs that the author leaves to discover the satisfying conclusion, but it's kind of like the movie Sixth Sense in that respect. Oh, now I get it. What a twist!

Sign me up for the Church of Morgasm (men can join too)!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very well written story February 27, 2012

I don't find too many stories these days written as well as the author did in this one. It's fast paced and certainly kept my attention the end. This book got me thinking throughout. The idea was obviously well thought through and I could imagine something like Morgasm existing in real life. If you're looking for an afternoon read about a witty sister who wants to protect her sister from a cult-like group about achieving greatness in your lovelife (with a surprise ending) you'll enjoy this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book - I Really Like It! February 26, 2012
By A. Z.
The story of the Ministry of Morgasm is just as interesting as its title. This e-book carries a fast-paced and mysterious storyline to keep you hooked until the end of the book. In fact, you wouldn't want to put it down until you finish it. I'm really a fast reader, so I was through reading the book in just about 2 hours.

The story is smartly written, with twists and turns in its storyline. The author's sense of humor is also evident as it shows on the events and characters put into the book. Morgasm is a unique concept, and it makes you wonder if it really does exist. The idea is embedded into the storyline so effectively that it will make you believe that it's true.

What really is Morgasm? What does it involve? How does it work? It's up to you to find out. This is a good book. It's worth buying and it's worth reading.

I have never been more convinced that there are times when an author or his/her publisher pays people to furnish fake reviews. It is a good thing this drivel was only 99 cents, or I'd be more incensed than I am. First, note that the "short novel" is 38 pages (approx.) according to the description, which I unfortunately did not pay close enough attention to before deciding to purchase it. I'm sorry, but I assume that a novel, even a short one, has an actual PLOT with, I don't know, a setup, the main idea, and a conclusion! Perhaps if the author hadn't spent SO much of the first 3 "chapters" in the head of the narrator, with her telling us all the reasons she thinks that self-help programs are such a waste of time, there might have been a possibility that the author could actually tell the reader what the "Ministry of Morgasm" actually is. And the ending? SPOILER ALERT: the ending is the narrator deciding that she's going to go into therapy to deal with her divorce because she found out that her sister has been lying to her about her (the sister's) husband still being a doofus. WTF???

4.0 out of 5 stars Innovative writing that I would recommend February 22, 2012
As I read this story I imagined this could easily have been based upon a real life situation. I found parallels to the relationship the sisters have with each other to that with my own. Interesting story and clever writing and I loved the twist of irony. I'ts pace is fast and the style is fresh. The Morgasm concept is something I can imagine actually existing and that someone somewhere is hosting a meeting about the complexities of our relationship with pleasure is happening. Innovative writing that I would recommend.
