Most people are shocked to hear Dr. Andrea Pennington suggest that women should experience at least three orgasms a week.
A few years ago Dr. Pennington appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, a popular daytime TV show, to talk about serious diseases found in women over forty, which often go untreated or are missed due to women failing to recognize or simply dismissing the symptoms. In the context of recognizing a potential symptom of type 2 diabetes, it made sense. A low libido, decreased arousal and lack of orgasm are often found in those with sludgy blood vessels and poor nerve conduction brought on by high blood sugar.
Following that TV appearance, Dr. Pennington was inundated with calls and emails from women wanting to understand why she suggested three orgasms a week. Was three the minimum or maximum? If their blood sugar was normal but they still couldn’t achieve orgasm what else could be wrong? Women opened up about their problems initiating sex due to low desire. Other women even expressed frustration that after orgasm they became moody and irritated with their partner for weeks! And so many women expressed deep despair that a lack of sex caused a rift in the precious relationship with their partners.
The result of Dr. Pennington’s research and findings have been published in her new book, The Orgasm Prescription for Women. This has enabled women to improve their sexual health and well-being on multiple levels, while dramatically enhancing the communication with their beloved, deepening intimacy and even saving their marriages and partnerships. The Orgasm Prescription for Women empowers women (and their partners) to understand and reclaim female desire and satisfaction.
