However, this is a great book and it is an important book. I think it is required reading for anyone with a vagina and/or has a relationship with someone who does. This book's importance is NOT in its description of just what a man or woman can do to truly open up and deepen what I will call a "vaginally populated relationship" (it's a clumsy phrase but I like it so I am keeping it.)This book's importance is the scientific evidence regarding female and male interactions. I'm sixty three and I thought I was pretty well informed.Read more ›
Theories aside, the information she presents is vital in it's own right, and needs to be more widely disseminated. She presents compelling evidence from multiple sources on how trauma to the vagina impacts the brain far more than other kinds of non-sexual trauma do. She presents good evidence that this is because of the extensive neural connections between the vagina and the brain, with each one gives feedback to, and influencing the functioning of, the other.Read more ›
I don't know if they ever achieved that goal, but for them it was all-consuming.
Now along comes Naomi Wolf's Vagina, and a new generation of women and men may go in search of her well-described and tantalizing "ultimate" orgasm. I wish them luck. It could be a lot of fun.
Though "fun" is not a word that Wolf herself would use. A "Wolfian" orgasm is much more than fun. It is bliss itself. She terms it the "high orgasm" and describes it as "that kind of orgasm that most intensely induces the most complete possible trance state and that most involves all the body systems, so that afterward the woman feels the most replete...."
Like Reich, Wolf asserts that the high orgasm links the female to the transcendent, and thus has a spiritual dimension. Unlike Reich, Wolf has the benefit of 75 years of scientific sexual research, including modern brain research in which willing participants are wired and scanned while experiencing an orgasm.
The "vagina" in Vagina is not just the vagina. Technically, the vagina is the introitus, the vaginal opening. But Wolf expands it to mean "the entire female sex organ, from labia to clitoris, to introitus to mouth of the cervix." Soon she adds other sexually sensitive areas, including the perineum, the anal area, and the G Spot (which, if you don't know, is the back of the clitoris).Read more ›
