When it comes to sex, we've been getting it all wrong. Society has taught us that sex is all about penetration, but this leaves out a crucial fact - women don't orgasm this way. The result? A pleasure gap between women and men that needs to be addressed.

Understanding the Pleasure Gap

Did you know that 50% of 18- to 35-year-old women have trouble reaching orgasm with a partner? Compare that to the 91% of men who say they had an orgasm at their last sexual encounter. Clearly, there's a discrepancy that needs to be addressed.

Meet Dr. Laurie Mintz

In her groundbreaking book Becoming Cliterate, psychology professor and human sexuality expert Dr. Laurie Mintz delves deep into the cultural and historical factors that perpetuate the pleasure gap. Drawing from biology, sociology, linguistics, and sex therapy, she offers a comprehensive and accessible guide to closing this gap.

Reclaiming Female Orgasm

One of the key teachings in Becoming Cliterate is the importance of clitoral stimulation in achieving female orgasm. Dr. Mintz explains that by separating clitoral stimulation from penetration, women have unintentionally created a gap between how they think they should orgasm and how they actually do. With proven techniques and strategies, Dr. Mintz empowers women to reclaim their sexual pleasure.

Inclusive Approach

But Becoming Cliterate isn't just for women. Dr. Mintz emphasizes the importance of male involvement in closing the pleasure gap. In the book's final chapter, she offers insights and guidance for men, highlighting the fact that cliteracy isn't limited to those with a clitoris.

The Power of Knowledge

Armed with scientific evidence, cultural analysis, and practical advice, Becoming Cliterate is a revolutionary guide to transforming our collective perspective on sex. Dr. Mintz dispels the myths and misconceptions that have hindered our sexual experiences and replaces them with a fresh outlook grounded in pleasure and equality.


With Becoming Cliterate, Dr. Laurie Mintz offers a powerful solution to bridging the pleasure gap and ensuring satisfying sexual experiences for all. Whether you're a woman looking to reclaim your orgasm or a man aiming to be cliterate, this book is a must-read. So let's embark on this sexual revolution and discover the true pleasure that comes from being cliterate.
