This new updated edition highlights some new findings in sexual health and Dr Vivienne explains clearly what this means:
- Are orgasms influence to some degree by genetics?
- Women who are aware of the sensations inside their vagina are more likely to orgasm during intercourse.
- All orgasms originate from the clitoris which has internal and external parts to it, and each type has a different feeling.
- Sugar pills given to women during research improved their sex life by 40%.
- Be wary of people advertising creams, lotions and herbal supplements to improve their sexuality, there is little evidence to support these.
