Abstract

The sexual revolution of the 1970s allowed women to claim their right to enjoy and learn about their bodies. Yet, thirty years later, female orgasm remains a mystery to many women, as well as men. And even today many women acknowledge having never experienced orgasm. In this film, one woman of 68 years recounts, with tears in her eyes, how she discovered sexual pleasure for the first time at age 46 - a discovery that changed her life. Are all orgasms comparable? What is the role of "erotic scenarios?" What subtle alchemy between body and mind leads to pleasure? In this documentary, women speak openly about their experiences. And analysis from specialists - psychiatrists, sexologists, neurologists - who discuss enjoyment in all its forms.
