The Expert Guide to Female Orgasms is one of Tristan Taormino’s educational DVDs in her “Expert Guide” series. This DVD was sent to me by the sex toy shop, EdenFantasys. This DVD is all about female pleasure, achieving an orgasm and how to get there. The DVD runs for an hour and 51 minutes. I feel that the DVD will be helpful for those who are starting out sexually, those who would like to help their partner understand how to help them achieve an orgasm, or those just plain struggling with achieving their orgasms. The DVD has an informational movie guided by Tristan Taormino, but it also features short videos covering safe sex, kegel exercises, and a vibrator guide – which are all also very informative. There are no voice overs during the sex scenes like past Taormino videos. The DVD also features a wide variety of actors and actresses. The main movie starts with Tristan giving an “Orgasm Workshop”. In the workshop she gives a lot of information as well as shows the various actors and actresses giving their opinions about the female orgasm. I love that Tristan is sure to make an emphasis on how every woman’s body and orgasms are different – which means that we women don’t all work and feel the same way.
Ms. Taormino also gives information about the sexual arousal stages a women’s body goes through: excitement, plateau, orgasm, and then resolution. Though that does not mean that all of those stages are clearly defined and it doesn’t always work the same way every time. She also even mentions that we should look at the whole picture, and think about our emotions, feelings, psychological/spiritual aspects that come out for us during sex. The types of orgasms are covered: uterine, clitoral, vaginal, blended, and g-spot. Ms. Taormino does make a point to mention that the orgasm classifications may make it tricky because there is no absolute way to tell what was what and it can feel different each time. So it is better, to put more emphasis on the different ways that a woman can receive pleasure. Such as clitoral stimulation, vulva/vaginal, g-spot, cervix, anal, and a combination of stimulation. She puts an emphasis on lubricant because even though your mind is ready, it doesn’t mean that your body necessarily is. Ms. Taormino covers the basics of lubricant and then goes on to give tips about clitoral, vaginal, g-spot, and anal orgasms. She mentions that the mind is a huge part of sex and that even stress can cause issues. She ends her workshop by giving an “Orgasm Challenge” which includes experimentation and sharing your likes and dislikes with your partner.
After the workshop, the DVD goes into the sex scenes. Each couple scene starts out with an interview and then it goes into the sex scene. The first couple shown is Katie St. Ives and Sean Micheals, what I liked about them is that you can tell that they have great chemistry already from their interviews. Katie starts off her interview by talking about how her body works and her and Sean talk about the connection they have with each other, and I love how they also joke around. Once it goes into the scene starts off with sensual kissing, then it features cunnilingus, fellatio, and various sex positions. There is sex toy use shown. You can tell that they have a connection with each other and they talk to each other during sex.
The next couple is Evanni Solei and Evan Stone. I will admit now that I am not a huge fan of Evan Stone, just something about him looks dirty and skeezy to me, so it makes it hard for me to get into any scenes that he is in. I will say that I liked their scene a lot though, it seemed sensual and sweet. During the interview Evan Stone jokes around a lot and Evanni mentions that communication is very important to help achieve the orgasms. The scene starts off with very slow sensual touching and kissing, it’s very sexy. This scene also shows cunnilingus and vibrator use. For some reason, I feel that this scene feels short compared the others.
The third scene is between Madison Young and Jiz Lee. I love Madison Young, I think she is such a cutie. I am envious of her because she mentions in her interview the many ways that she can have an orgasm. During part the their scene, Madison would purr like a kitty or bark like a puppy, which I thought was cute because it showed how playful sex can be. I am a bit bi-curious but not a lot so I don’t watch a whole lot of lesbian videos. So I don’t know if I can really compare it, but to me it seemed that they had great chemistry. This scene also showed cunnilingus and vibrator use, but it also showed dildo use and hand stimulation. It was a great example of safe sex, because they both wore gloves during the hand stimulation.
The fourth scene featured Dylan Ryan and Mr. Marcus – I liked in the interview how Dylan Ryan seems so sure of her body and what she needs. She talked about the first time she had an orgasm and then talked about how she is able to achieve an orgasm through both masturbation and sex -and talks about what kind of stimulation she needs to do so. She also talks about what stimulation she needs to cause herself to reach female ejaculation. I also like how Mr. Marcus mentions that every woman is different and how it is important to find out what the woman needs. The scene is similar to the others as it features, cunnilingus and dildo use. I also enjoyed seeing Mr. Marcus pull Dylan Ryan’s hair – I love hair pulling. You are also able to witness Dylan Ryan ejaculate in the video, which I feel is great because you can visually see what it’s like. Plus some guys (like my partner) and gals don’t understand what it is, and where is comes from. Though I feel it important to add that not all women achieve ejaculation or enjoy that type of stimulation.
The last scene features James Deen and Adrianna Nicole. I absolutely love both Adrianna and James. They are both great looking actors and I like how they look normal and not all fake and plasticized. They have really good chemistry together and work great in their scene. James is really funny and seems like an everyday normal guy. Adrianna talks about the first time that she had an orgasm. She mentions how she likes to make an afternoon of masturbating (just like me!). She also mentions that it is easier for her to orgasm through anal sex. James also mentions that his favorite part is being able to watch a woman orgasm. The scene features cunnilingus, fellatio, vibrator use, butt plug use, and also has a bit of hair pulling. Most of the scene involved anal sex, which I was glad to see included so women and men can understand and see all the different ways that a woman can achieve an orgasm.
The DVD menus are well designed, easy to navigate and understand. As I mentioned there are special features, that include the informative “Safer Sex”, “Kegel Exercises”, and “Vibrator Guide”. The Safer Sex video goes over safe sex and why it is important. The Kegel Exercise video covers what kegel exercises are, how they are helpful, and how to do them. The Vibrator Guide goes over the various types of vibrators available to purchase. There is a “Masturbation Montage” that pretty much shows the various stars masturbating – this would be helpful to some women if they are looking to experiment and figure out new ways to stimulate themselves. There is also a “Behind the Scenes” feature that shows the stars behind the scenes.
For me, the pros of this DVD is that there is a wide variety of actors and actresses. They are all natural looking and seem as if they are normal people. I loved that the whole movie focused completely on how the woman is receiving pleasure, all but one of the scenes seemed to end after the woman had an orgasm. I loved that safe sex was emphasized in the video, condoms were used (even on the sex toys) and gloves were used. Lubricants were also shown being used as well during sex toy use and anal sex. The DVD did truly show that all women are different and that their bodies work differently. I don’t feel that the DVD’s information was as beneficial to me because I knew a lot of it already, but I did still enjoy it and it helps to give me and my partner new ideas and tricks to use.
I really didn’t find any huge cons about the DVD, but one thing I did notice was that most of the sex toys that were used in the video were huge. Which I am sure worked great for the stars in the video, but that may be intimidating for some women. Though there is a little bit of variety in the video, there isn’t a lot of kink included besides a little bit of hair pulling and then in the Jiz and Madison scene, Jiz smacks Madison’s butt a bit.
