Synopsis

In this entertaining documentary, Liz Canner explores the strange science of female pleasure, and in the process reveals the often warped mentality of our pharmaceutical and medical industries.

ORGASM INC. begins when filmmaker Liz Canner is hired to edit videos to be used in a drug trial for a pharmaceutical company. Her employer is developing what they hope will be the first FDA approved drug for women that will treat a new disease: FSD.

Intrigued, Liz decides to make a movie about the science of female pleasure. But she soon begins to suspect that her employer, along with other medical and pharmaceutical companies, might be trying to take advantage of women in pursuit of profit. With unique access and a deft style of interviewing, Liz embarks on a nine year odyssey as she follows pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers who are racing to be the first to win FDA approval for their product – be it pill, patch, nose spray, or some other delivery device.

The promised cure: normal sexual function and orgasm. The prize: billions of dollars in profits. Despite its serious agenda, Canner brings wry humour to her film. Featuring illuminating footage and interviews with activists, doctors and medical experts, the documentary is a powerful, timely and, yes, entertaining look inside Big Pharma and other medical companies with their often misleading marketing campaigns that literally and figuratively reshape our everyday lives.

Upbeat, engaging, enlightening, and provocative, this documentary film will change the way you think about sex.

  1. I’m part of larger base of women who had a complete hysterectomy (which includes removal of both ovaries and uterus) and subsequently prescribed and took estratest from age 38 to age 55 and then got breast cancer. Estratest is a testosterone/estrogen pill prescribed for women. It worked great for me for a while. There is no history in my family of breast cancer and I still remain the only one who had it. Estratest is firmly linked to breast cancer. My life changed dramatically when I had to stop using it. My sex life is good when it happens, but sex doesn’t happen often (it doesn’t help that hubby is going through his own male menopause). Sex with him and sex by myself still works just fine, with a few “mental modifications”. I orgasm just like I always have, but time to arousal is slower than it was. I think orgasm for my age and medical history is simply a matter of getting the right mental and external stimulation. If this describes you, try these things: Watch realistic sex in movies. (Not horrible misogynistic porn!). Read erotica – especially read erotica, it works. Think about really hot past sexual experiences. Ladies, you do NOT need these drugs that Pharma pushes at us. There are natural remedies to help with the symptoms. At this point the pharmas are using us for their “trials” by okaying drugs without much study. The FDA is a money based org of doctors and it behooves them to okay and pass drugs along quickly. PLEASE, PLEASE talk to your female gyno about these issues.
