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.

Linda Franklin, founder and director of www.therealcougarwoman.com and author of the bestseller Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am, knows a thing or two about reinvention after forty.  Below she dispels some sexual myths that may be stopping you from having fun in the bedroom.

Just like men, women make their fair share of  bedroom blunders.  In fact, too many women are guilty of buying into sexual myths like, “Men are like a light switch, either they are turned on or turned off.” So let’s start with that myth and move on to other outdated beliefs that take the fun out of sex.

MYTH #1:  Men get turned on without you  even trying. Maybe that’s true if the guy’s 22, but beyond that, men definitely have times when they need more.  A show of interest from you can be very encouraging and the ultimate turn on. Men love to be made love to, so don’t overlook your opportunity to please your partner.  His erection is all about you.

MYTH #2:  Expecting a man to know what turns you on. Why should a man know your body better than you do?  Let your partner know what you like.  Better still, show him.

MYTH #3:  Thinking sex is “messy.” Whatever  happens during sex is sensual not gross. Start thinking  about the joy of  sex not cleaning the sheets. MYTH  #4:  Certain positions are  “unladylike.”  No such thing.  If it pleases both of you go for it.

MYTH #4:  Refusing to let a partner try anything new. You can’t even stand eating the same meal twice in a week, why would you expect your partner to want to have sex the same way every single time?

MYTH #5:  Hiding “enhancers.” If you enjoy using a fun toy or  an arousal oil to enhance your sexual experience, don’t be embarrased to share that with  your partner.  He will love that you want to kick it up a  notch.

MYTH #6:  Making love is  sinful. If  you have an ill conceived notion that sex is sinful – then you are not going  to enjoy it.  Sex isn’t sinful, it’s as natural as eating and breathing.  Sex is a gift that is meant to be enjoyed. So go ahead, let go,  start laughing, playing, and having fun in bed or anywhere else you  choose.

MYTH #7:  Too tired for  sex. Making love is energizing  – so even if you are tired, give it a try.  Experts say the more you  have sex the more you will want to have sex. Don’t send it to the bottom of your priority list.  Not having sex is bad for your health and your relationship.

Sex is all about having fun, so don’t get all tangled up with what you think is right or wrong – just go for the gusto and enjoy!!!
