What do we think we know about the female orgasm? It's that peak experience, an ultimate moment of climax and release that nevertheless eludes so many. Some women live for it, some have multiple orgasms, some fake it while others simply learn to do without. "Autobiography of an Orgasm" (November, 2014) is a sexy-spiritual memoir that's part steamy erotica and part straight-talking advice. It's the result of Betsy Blankenbaker's tireless journey to learn everything she could about the female orgasm in a personal quest to feel as much as possible after too many years of feeling nothing at all. To solve the mystery of why she spent much of her life disconnected from her sensuality, struggling to overcome the shame of childhood sexual assault, Blankenbaker set out at age 45 to thoroughly research women's orgasm. Along the way, she spent time in bed with orgasm experts, strolled down New York's tony Fifth Avenue with a healing jade egg in her vagina, had a spiritual awakening through orgasm in Africa, and received sacred "Womb Rites" from a shaman in the Peruvian Amazon. Through lively storytelling and a delicious sense of humor, Betsy shares why she was never able to find fulfillment in life, love or sex prior to her pilgrimage to healing and pleasure. Her findings resulted in this unprecedented book, "Autobiography of an Orgasm." "Autobiography of an Orgasm" seeks to answer the questions women have but don't know how (or whom) to ask. It is the author's fervent prayer that it will inspire women everywhere to burn their dysfunctional bridges and step into healing by learning to love their bodies and themselves.

What happens when people speak their truth about their sensual experiences? Read Autobiographies of Our Orgasms and find out. It's like Chicken Soup for the Soul, but for orgasm. After releasing her first book, Autobiography of an Orgasm, something unexpected happened. Author Betsy Blankenbaker began to receive story after story from readers who thanked her for putting words to their own disconnection from their sensual being. For some, it became a starting point to look at their relationships to their bodies. For others, it became a launching point for reclaiming their bodies as holy and experiencing healing through orgasm. In her second book, Autobiographies of Our Orgasms, Blankenbaker invited readers to submit their own stories of sacred connection to their bodies and their orgasms. The selected storytellers, both women and men, invite you into their beds with their heartfelt, soulful, courageous stories. They write with raw truth and transparency of the moment they listened to their bodies instead of the messages coming from media, church, family and partners about how sex and life should look or feel. Blankenbaker candidly shares common misinformation on orgasm and why she believes you need to spend as much time honoring your body as sacred as you do on getting your hair done, going to the gym, shopping or perusing social networking. The stories in Autobiographies of Our Orgasms will entertain, educate and inspire you to question everything you think you know about your body and sexuality. And like Blankenbaker, you may even find a path to spiritual enlightenment and healing through remembering your body as sacred.

When Betsy Blankenbaker published Autobiography of an Orgasm in 2014, glowing reviews for her vulnerable storytelling poured in. So did a deluge of messages from readers who also learned the fundamental role of pleasure in their lives after years of thinking something was wrong with them because they couldn't feel their orgasm. In June 2015 Betsy brought us Autobiographies of Our Orgasms, an intelligently and sensitively curated anthology of sixteen stories by men and women who had confronted abuse, social mores, and all the other things that come between us and our orgasms. In 2016, a second collection was released featuring stories from sixteen more women. In 2017, Betsy offers another anthology of powerful, candid stories for Autobiographies of Our Orgasms 3. "We write these stories to learn about ourselves," Betsy says and by reading them we learn even more. When one person tells the truth about their experience it gives others permission to do the same. In a culture where sexual pleasure is obscured by the pressure to climax and the messages that are prevalent in porn, such as women are objects and not active participants with their own desires- these stories will help you redefine what an orgasm is and when you may have lost touch with your own. Autobiographies of Our Orgasms 3 will make you laugh, break your heart, and give you courage. This book will expand your thinking on orgasm to a whole new world of feeling - and it just may open you up to a deeper experience of your body, your sensual self and the way you live in the world.

In 2014, Betsy Blankenbaker released her first book, Autobiography of an Orgasm, a spiritual memoir about her five years researching orgasm as a way to heal. The U.K.'s Sunday Times called it "part erotica, part refreshingly sincere roadmap for the orgasmically challenged... sort of an anti- Fifty Shades of Grey." By the time Betsy completed her book, she had healed her body and mind from the sexual assaults she experienced as a child and teenager, and from a date rape as an adult. She felt herself coming to life at age fifty, a time when many women are being dismissed by society. There were consequences for speaking up-some of them unpleasant. She wondered if she should have stayed quiet so that she didn't offend or hurt or disappoint other people. How many of us don't speak our truth because we fear rejection or being abandoned by others? We choose to stay quiet-and then we abandon ourselves. Beyond O is the captivating follow-up to Autobiography of an Orgasm. Through her personal storytelling, Betsy makes you question your current views on sex and sensuality as she focuses less on the orgasm and more on living an orgasmic life. She uses humor and truth-telling as she invites the reader into the most sensual year of her life. By the end of the book - and an unexpected twist - Betsy will make you want to speak up too.

As you are driving, your body involuntarily jumps. Sweat begins on your forehead and appears on your body, even though it is the middle of Winter. Inside of your left thigh, there is a tapping that is not harmful but noticeable. And you begin to wonder if sanity has departed or control of your motor skills is no longer your own. Then, the epiphany becomes clear. This is Revenge of the Orgasm

When he died in 1957, Wilhelm Reich had been the most revolutionary figure in psychoanalysis and the only student of Freud's to carry his libido theory into experimental science. Reich's legacy includes such essential volumes as Character Analysis, The Function of the Orgasm, and The Mass Psychology of Fascism. Passion of Youth is the latest of Reich's writings to appear posthumously, and it reveals that Reich's life, no less than his work, was provocative and instructive. In a reminiscence composed in 1919, "Childhood and Puberty," Reich tells of his earliest years, spent on a country estate in Bukovina. He describes his first conscious experiences of sexuality, and the further development of his sexual life; his schooling; and, above all, the catastrophic infidelity that led first to his mother's suicide in 1910 and then to his father's death in 1914. With the outbreak of the Great War, Reich fled Bukovina and enlisted in the Austro-Hungarian Army, where he became a battalion commander. In an excerpt from his 1937 History of Sexpol, he recounts how his four years in the military impressed on him the masses' numb obedience to authority and the automatic quality of a ceaselessly operating "war machine." Reich began his study of medicine at the University of Vienna in 1919 and graduated in the summer of 1922. His diaries from these years record his encounter with Freud; the growth of his conviction that sexuality is the core around which all social life, and the inner life, revolves; his first political stirrings; and his analysis of the woman who would become his first wife. These diaries abound in turbulent emotions and the passion of youth.

Originally published in 1991. Addressing the ways in which the ideology of gender and its social construction determine autobiographical self-representations, the essays here consider several women’s works in the light of the social and historical conditions which enabled their production. Some examine diaries as a feminine form and ask about the ways in which thematic content such as childbirth can or cannot be represented in diaries and public discourse at different historical junctures. Others show the pressures of gender roles and how they have led to new genres in which self-representation is often a refraction of the representation of others. With the tools of gender theory, the representation of hermaphroditism, masculinity and male bodies is analysed and the ways in which gender intersects with racial, sexual and class ideologies is also looked at, in seeing autobiography as a form of agency in self-construction.

Rebecca Nachman is a Rabbi without a synagogue. Having resigned from her dwindling congregation, she now works as a college counselor at a small Vermont college advising students about private matters and offering the "Jewish perspective" on issues raised at faculty dinner parties. Deeply lonely and on the edge of losing her faith, she comes into possession of a Torah, the last relic of Czechowa, a village of Polish Jews who were exterminated by the Nazis. With the Torah, the unquiet spirits of the village dead begin to visit Rebecca. On one visit they leave a manuscript written in Hebrew and titled My Life, an autobiography by God who, like any eager author, is seeking a sympathetic reader. No one has ever finished reading the manuscript, including Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, Maimonides, and Augustine. God thinks Rebecca will. Rebecca's life is further complicated when one of her advisees-a troubled young woman who seemed on the verge of confessing something-is found murdered. As the college struggles to comprehend the tragedy and a police investigation is launched, Rebecca begins reading, and so comes to confront the central challenge to her faith in His most troubling and unlikely incarnation. Julius Lester's first adult novel in more than a decade, The Autobiography of God marks the return of an utterly original and provocative voice in American letters, addressing religion with wicked humor and profound reverence.
