techorgasmWe all have times in our lives when we learn something about the world that profoundly changes the way we think about it - something that just kicks us a bit and we wind up in a slightly different spot than we were before looking at the world from our new perspective.I remember vividly the day that I learned that welfare was created to keep the poor from rising up and overthrowing the rich. No good intentions, no benevolence - just money and power and a desire to keep them despite who had to suffer.I also remember the day that I learned how women's sexuality and bodies have been treated throughout history. It was the day I read the Technology of Orgasm. This fascinating book traces how women's orgasms have been hidden, forbidden and manipulated throughout history and chronicles the rise of the vibrator as a medical device. It turns out that rich people want to keep their money and doctors don't want to have to masturbate their female patients to orgasm manually when they can just get a machine to do it.This fantastic book has just been made into a movie called Passion and Power. I haven't seen it yet but I plan on getting my hands on a copy as soon as possible. I would suggest inviting over your friends, having a screening and a discussion afterwards. I bet you will learn things about the world you never knew - both from the movie and your friends.UPDATE: Rachel Kramer Bussel has written a fantastic review of the film with tons of detail over at Alternet: check it out.
