Linda Franklin, founder and director of 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.
