Editorial Reviews

Review

"Required education for every man on the planet." -Timothy Ferriss, New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Body and The 4-Hour Workweek

"Ah! Combining meditative awareness with sexual peasure! What could be better--or more life-enhancing--than this?" -Christiane Northrup, MD, OB/GYN physician, and New York Times bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

"Slow Sex is the real deal on pleasuring a woman. For any guy who want his fifteen minutes of sexual fame, Daedone offers practical and inspired guide to the orgasmic big leagues." -Ian Kerner, sexuality counselor and New York Times bestselling author of She Comes First

"Daedone makes her arguments persuasively, with clear instructions and a knack for the just-right analogy or phrase. This is not another tantra book....OM practice should give many people a fresh and satisfying conduit to deeper sexual intimacy. Recommended." -Library Journal

"Daedone's philosophy is a refreshing counterpoint to the porny mainstream." -Salon.com

"At a time when many women feel pressured to add sex to their Superwoman to-do list without feeling like they get much in return, Slow Sex is a much needed and welcome invitation for women and men to strip down to the bare essentials of a woman's authentic sexuality so sex can fill her up, rather than deplete her. A must-read for any woman who hasn't fully accessed her orgasmic potential and yearns to more fully embody the intimacy and surrender a loving sexual relationship can bring to a woman's wholly healthy life." -Lissa Rankin, MD, OB/GYN, author of What's Up Down There and founder of OwningPink.com

Thanks Nicole for playing big with the One Taste concept and this insightfully prescriptive book.

Wanting to be touched now, in this way, is okay for me to feel, and okay for me to say.

I love this book. It's taught me how having my own desires, and speaking them, beyond the vanilla, standard guy-pleasing "I want you"...is okay. Is not going to...frighten my partner away, or make me feel like a freak for having my own desires out in the open.

And, it's make me understand that a man will truly focus on me - just me - for a while, and that's really okay! I always got nervous when a man went down on me...I figured he wanted me to hurry up so he could have his turn, that me must be pretending to be enjoying it, and it just stressed me out. Which makes it REALLY hard to come (so, I became a good actress).

It sounds silly written like that, but I've censored my own sexual wants and needs for so long...the concept and practice of OM is really, truly wonderful. Wanting to be touched now, in this way, is okay for me to feel, and okay for me to say.

Finally, I'm learning that there's no reason to cover up my desires and my needs with embarrassment, thinking I should hide my desires and focus on pleasing my male partner.

As with many women, my early sexual experiences were (very very) not good. I lost my virginity via rape, as a teen, during an assault by a stranger, and I guess I never really recovered. Sex was something I did because my boyfriends, then my husband, wanted/needed it. Over the years it transitioned from very scary (even with my kind, safe boyfriend) to usually very enjoyable, but I never learned to speak up and say what I wanted. I dated some great guys who wanted to please me, but I couldn't get past my own issues to tell them about my own fantasies, or even something simple, like to please "move a little to the left" as they touched me.

Nicole...Thank you.

Format: Paperback
"Women who think they're going to learn anything from Fifty Shades of Gray are wasting their time. They'd do better to read `Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm.'"

I read that on a message board.

So I bought Nicole Daedone's book.

On page 1: "I teach a practice called Orgasmic Meditation. It's a way that any man can bring out the orgasm in any woman, in just fifteen minutes."

Would you read on?

Very quickly I learned that orgasm, for Daedone, is not the moment of climax. It's the entire experience of sex. It's the way sexual potency is "a source of power," an "entry point" to joyful living, a "gateway" to a deeper connection with your lover.

Sounds good?

Or would you prefer to learn, from "50 Shades," how to enjoy being whipped with a riding crop?

Given that choice, any reasonable woman --- or any man involved with a woman who prefers improved reality to romance novel fantasy --- would ask: So what is the technique?

It's not sex. It's not even foreplay. After 15 minutes, you get up and leave. It's just what Daedone says it is --- meditation. But because we're talking about orgasm, you do it with your body.

Or rather, you do it with the woman's body --- because the man remains fully clothed. She removes her pants. Lies down. Spreads her legs. From there, he does everything. Looking. Stroking. Talking.

However much I may be a man of the world, I blush to tell you the specifics. So please watch Nicole Daedone's TED Talk (yes, she made a presentation at TedxSF). I'd suggest that you start at 5:30 and cut out around the 10-minute mark.

After starting to read Fifty Shades I realized that at 50 years old I was missing out on something.
The fact that my wife wasn't having a great orgasm like me every-time...I just assumed that women knew all they needed to know about sex and that was just the way it was. Well this book opened my eyes to a new world. I even cried at the thought that my wife was just going through the routine of sex. This book was a gateway to other books that have been a sexual rebirth for me and my wife. THANK YOU! I spend a lot of time on the road and when I am at home, I am very busy so now I subscribe to Audible.com
I now have hours and hours of listening pleasure on the road. Great read and great audio book!

if you are like i was before i was introduced to nicole and orgasmic meditation just over a year ago, you will be wondering about the point of reading this book, since right now sex is either one more thing on your to-do list, something you try to avoid, or perhaps it never even crosses your mind. well, listen up: this is exactly the point of reading this book! i was starving to death, before hunger finally saved my life, waking me to desire. in fact, i had no idea that i would ever even want to enjoy sex, but i am living proof that we are all actually pleasure craving creatures, and yet so many of us still just settle for going through the motions of life, completely dead inside. "slow sex: the art and craft of the female orgasm" provides the sublime permission and guidance we women need in order to cultivate desire beyond limitation and engage ecstasy beyond wild imagination to harness the brilliant power and clarity that emerges when we leave fear and playing small in the dust! don't just take my word for how OM has changed my life - give it a whirl yourself - your world will only continue to become bigger, brighter, bolder! we all deserve vibrant yummy lives and awakening our sex and our turn on is the most nourishing act of vitality there is!

More About the Author

Nicole Daedone is a sought-after speaker, author, and expert in female orgasm, relationships, and communication. Her first book, Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm makes the argument that an extraordinary life begins with a different kind of orgasm.

Nicole is the founder of OneTaste, a company that offers training in orgasm, communication, and man-woman relationships through online media and in-person coaching and courses. The practice at the heart of her work is called OM or Orgasmic Meditation. OM uniquely combines the tradition of extended orgasm with Nicole's own interest in Zen Buddhism, mystical Judaism and semantics. Helping to foster a new conversation about orgasm--one that's relevant and real--she has inspired thousands of students to make OM a part of their everyday lives.

Nicole graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in semantics and gender communication. She went on to found the popular avant garde art gallery 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco's SoMa district before moving on to OneTaste.

Nicole has appeared on ABC's Nightline and her work has been featured in the New York Times, the New York Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, and 7x7 Magazine, among others, and her writing has appeared in Tricycle magazine. She is also a featured speaker at the 2011 TEDxSF conference. In his #1 New York Times Bestseller The 4-Hour Body Timothy Ferriss calls the OM practice "required education for every man on the planet." Raised in Los Gatos, CA, Nicole now lives in San Francisco.
