You may have seen a story in the media earlier in the week about the genetic component of the female orgasm. It cropped up all over the place including The Guardian, BBC News and New Scientist. Dr Petra Boynton (left), the sex and relationship psychologist, took issue with a few things about the research:
"Today the world of sexology, particularly those working in the area of sexual dysfunction got a little upset.
That's putting it mildly. Actually they were very angry about the latest study supposedly proving women's orgasmic problems are genetic."
In two excellent posts she proceeds to dismantle the research. Great stuff. This is what blogging is all about - a right to reply. And because of it, we're all better informed.
Women, orgasm and genetics & Women! Don't orgasm too easily
