This book answers the questions many of us secretly have about orgasms and many we may not even have thought of... until now. Ever wondered why people experience orgasms while asleep?

A must-read for every couple. Pulling together reliable information from hundreds of sources, The Orgasm Answer Guide will expand your frame of reference beyond your personal experience.
