Dr Petra BoyntonYou 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 and BBC News. 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.

Women, orgasm and genetics & Women! Don’t orgasm too easily
