From the Desk of a Sexual Medicine Gynecologist

It seems like everyone is talking about orgasms this month.  Young or old married single divorced widowed or just dating women are asking about what has happened to their orgasmic response.  Some women will tell of thunder and lightening that has fizzled to a brief pitter patter or rain and they are waiting, waiting and waiting with their umbrella only to be disappointed.

Sure orgasmic response can wax and wane, and it is affected by a variety of aspects including medical illnesses, medications as well as poor stimulation techniques but women do not have to concede to a lowered sexual response.  Here are some helpful hints to help rev up that orgasm.  Become empowered about your own sexuality.  Let the thunderstorms begin!

1- If you think that medical illness or medications are affecting orgasmic response see a health care provider who specializes in sexual medicine- there are things that can be done to help

2- Get a good book and vibrator!  Many women do not know their own genital pelvic anatomy so it’s always important to be well educated about your body and its response.  Some of my favorites include the G spot, and Becoming Orgasmic. Vibrators can be very helpful when needing more stimulation.  Do not be shy.  There are many online sites that provide excellent shopping opportunities in the comfort and safety of your own home and will arrive in discreet packaging.

3- Know your body and explore.  There are many erotic areas of a woman’s body and some are often neglected.  Have your partner experiment with some new exciting areas like the breasts, nipples or nape of the neck.  You maybe shocked at the electrifying results.

4- Try Zestra.  Zestra has been shown in clinical studies to improve sexual satisfaction and enhance overall orgasmic experience- In my clinical practice I have many women who use it regularly and it provides that extra needed “oomph” to help them be pushed to the limit of ecstasy.

This month’s “hot off the desk” information was provided by guest blogger Dr. Michael L. Krychman, Executive Director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine.

The Oscar Gift Bag left the King Speechless

Posted 12:33 pm, March 7th, 2011

by Rosann

At the 2011 Academy Awards, everyone wins…a gift bag that is. And, this year lucky nominees like Jeff Bridges, Michelle Williams, Helena Bonham Carter, and Geoffrey Rush all received Zestra in their gift bags.  Colin Firth, winner for best actor, took home the coveted prize for his portrayal of King George VI’s effort to find his “voice” as well as a little something green, too. We’re sure once Colin and his wife Livia Giuggioli take the Zestra for a test drive, he’ll once again be at a loss for words. Even the Today Show cast was in on the Zestra secret, with Meredith Vieira and Al Roker both taking home samples. Al, we won’t ask “What’s happening in your neighborhood?” – we can only imagine.

Zestra was included in the 2011 Academy Awards gift bags.

Don’t Throw in the Orgasm Towel

Posted 10:44 am, March 4th, 2011

Most women consider achieving orgasm as the ultimate sexual experience. But what happens when “getting there” seems downright impossible? Today, guest blogger Dr. Michael L. Krychman, Executive Director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship Medicine, discusses what to do when you feel like giving up.

Q: Should I throw in the towel on trying to experience orgasm?

Many women report difficulties in achieving orgasm and it is not an uncommon problem that I see in a sexual medicine center.  Often women will tell of orgasmic and arousal changes- the intensity of orgasm has diminished over time or the time to achieve orgasm has increased substantially.  There are clear solutions that women can implement in order to help them regain that orgasmic wow factor they once had.

Medical evaluations are important and should not be underestimated.  Sometimes there are underlying medical illnesses that may be hindering the clitoral blood flow- undiagnosed diabetes, Parkinson’s, hypertension or even high cholesterol have been known to impact overall orgasmic response.  The first step is to rule out any of these illnesses and if you do have them make certain that they are under control.  Secondly- medications!  We are a pill- popping generation of men and women. Many of the prescription medications like antidepressant medications can seriously affect the orgasmic response!  Before automatically stopping them, it’s important to consult with your health care professional- there are potential interventions like changing to a less offending medication or timing the medication to help ease the effects on your orgasmic response.

It is also important to remember that a woman can experience a variety of orgasmic responses- clitoral, vaginal, G spot or even blended types.  Many women are unable to achieve orgasm through penetration and often need direct clitoral stimulation for orgasmic sex.

Make sure you are getting the correct amount of stimulation and to the correct areas.  A woman has many erotic zones, which can be pleasurable and stimulate orgasm.  Vibrators and self-stimulators can be very helpful in achieving the type of stimulation you need.  Do not be afraid to incorporate them into lovemaking activities as well – and do not worry- it’s a myth that you will become addicted to your vibrator.  Educate your partner about your genital anatomy.  Don’t assume your partner can read your mind so it’s important to let them know what feels exciting and pleasurable.  Share your sexual feelings!

Lastly, there are both medical and non medical products that can help with orgasmic response.  Sometimes women may be hormonally depleted and the tissues in the pelvic area may be dry and unresponsive.  In selected case local hormones including estrogen may be restorative; it’s always important to discuss your concerns and have your questions addressed should you think that you’re in need of some local hormonal replacement.  Over the counter products, including Zestra ®, can also help with arousal and orgasmic response.  Many women in my clinical practice swear by it.  They use it regularly to enjoy the Zestra Rush sometimes on a daily basis and will use more before they are sexual intimate with their partner.  Women report increased orgasmic intensity and a shorter time to achieve orgasm.

I feel your frustration, but I wouldn’t be throwing in the towel – you are not alone and there are dedicated sexual health care professionals who can help you!  There are also safe effective products to help you on your sexual journey towards orgasmic response.  Don’t throw away the towel just yet, you will need it to wipe the perspiration from your body soon enough.  Hot steamy orgasmic sex is likely just around the corner.

Grammy News: Looks Who’s Gettin’ Jiggy with Zestra

Posted 6:45 am, February 24th, 2011

by Rosann

At the 53rd Grammy awards, some people walked away with shiny trophies, but others took home an equally satisfying prize – Zestra. Yes, super celebs like Anita Baker, LL Cool J, Jamie Foxx, and Ryan Seacrest along with power couples Heidi Klum and Seal as well as the REAL Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Will and Jada of course) all walked away with Zestra in their Grammy gift bags. Now that they are all in on the secret to better sex, we thought it would be fun to take a guess at what their reactions might be after experiencing Zestra at the well…“after party.”

Anita Baker, when asked about her famous song “You Bring me Joy” might readily admit that her re-release will have slight name change: You (and Zestra) Bring me Joy. LL Cool J, busy sharing the news with the cast of NCIS: Los Angeles might say, “I need love, but I also need my green tipped wingman Zestra.” And Seacrest? He’d probably be too preoccupied to comment – “Seacrest Out.”  Our guess is Will Smith would be reachable by voicemail only, because he’s getting Jiggy with the lady of his life. And even though Seal is ecstatic about taking home a Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals award, we’re sure he can hardly contain his excitement about his next adults-only night on the town with Heidi and their new found power, pleasure… Zestra baby!

Orgasm, The Movie: The Topic of Female Sexuality hits the Big Screen

Posted 11:12 am, February 10th, 2011

by Rosann

Linda Franklin, founder and director of www.therealcougarwoman.com and author of the bestseller Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am, is smart, sexy, independent and proud to be over 40. Below she comments on the new documentary, Orgasm Inc: The Strange Science of Female Pleasure.

LindaFranklin01a In the shocking and hilarious documentary ORGASM INC., filmmaker Liz Canner takes a job editing erotic videos for a drug trial for a pharmaceutical company. Her employer is developing what they hope will be the first Viagra drug for women that wins FDA approval to treat a new disease: Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD).

Liz gains permission to film the company for her own documentary. Initially, she plans to create a movie about science and pleasure but she soon begins to suspect that her employer, along with a cadre of other medical companies, might be trying to take advantage of women (and potentially endanger their health) in pursuit of billion dollar profits

ORGASM INC. is a powerful look inside the medical industry and the marketing campaigns that are literally and figuratively reshaping our everyday lives around health, illness, desire — and that ultimate moment: orgasm.

Female sexuality is a hot topic but one that is shunned by most media outlets

Yes, there is a double standard that my two wonderful sexperts Rachel Braun Sherl and Mary Wallace Jaensch are all too aware of.  They are CEO and President of Semprae Laboratories, Inc., a company run by women dedicated to the idea that all women deserve sexual satisfaction. Too often ads for their flagship product Zestra® Essential Arousal Oils™ are rejected by media outlets. Read more about that ongoing battle in this The New York Times article.Orgasm, Inc. opens tomorrow Friday, February 11th.  Find out more  here.

To learn more about Linda and her tips for smart, sexy and independent women over 40, visit her website www.therealcougarwoman.com.

Fran Drescher on The Oprah Show

Posted 10:28 am, January 28th, 2011

by Rosann

Today in a ‘Most Memorable Couples’ segment on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Fran Drescher and her ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson will talk about their unique relationship that inspired the new sitcom pilot on TVLAND called Happily Divorced. The show is based on Drescher’s real life, and centers around how she deals with dating after finding out her husband (Jacobson) is gay, and how she juggles her relationship with her current boyfriend and ex-husband post-divorce.

Drescher and Jacobson, who were high school sweethearts, remain best friends, and have been actively involved in Drescher’s Cancer Schmancer Foundation. Drescher, a uterine cancer survivor, started the Cancer Schmancer Foundation to transform women from patients into medical consumers, and promote early detection of cancer. Drescher spoke in detail with Winfrey about her diagnosis in 2009, and again touches on her experience today. Semprae is proud to have contributed to the Cancer Schmancer Foundation as well as be a resource for cancer survivors, many of whom describe the Zestra experience as a “reawakening” in their sex lives.
