Synopsis

Orgasm Inc. explores the strange science of female pleasure and in the process reveals the warped mentality of our pharmaceutical and medical industries. Director Liz Canner embarks on a nine year odyssey as she follows the companies who are racing to be the first to win FDA approval for a product to cure “female sexual dysfunction.” The prize: billions of dollars in profits.

Featuring illuminating footage and interviews with activists, doctors and medical experts, Orgasm Inc. will change the way you think about sex.
