Vivienne Cass…reminds us that orgasms are not essential to good or even great sex…[this is] the opening gambit of a very helpful and reassuring book that is more than a guide to having orgasms, it is a book about having good sex. Clinicians who treat women with arousal and orgasm difficulties will find The Elusive Orgasm an extremely helpful adjunct to therapy.
Review: Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, 2006, Vol 32(1) by Dr Kathryn Hall
The Elusive Orgasm offers the perfect combination of psychology, science and plain talk. Dr. Cass speaks frankly, putting her readers at ease while covering this “elusive” topic completely and expertly. The illustrations are first rate, and the quizzes and questionnaires get the reader intimately involved. This book should be at every bedside — and it should bring increased sexual fulfillment to anyone who opens it.

The Elusive Orgasm is an important book for all women, their partners and health professionals. It takes a woman by the hand and gently guides her to sexual satisfaction and pleasure. Dr Cass’ humour and non-judgmental style help women to learn about their bodies and sexual responses. What fun to read!
Professor Beverly Whipple, Distinguished sex researcher and co-author, The G-Spot
This book is written in clear, accessible language and explores the issues relevant to female sexuality. It is suitable for women of all ages and offers easy to follow exercises and advice. Highly recommended (5 stars).

The diagrams are very good, certainly better than anything I have seen anywhere else.

This is a ground-breaking book on female orgasmic difficulties, the first new book on the subject for thirty years.

Congratulations on a unique and attractive book. The Elusive Orgasm is very impressive. It is accessible and friendly with a tolerance and openness which does not lose sight of the subject’s intrinsic enjoyment.

Dr Cass’ book contains splendidly graphic illustrations showing the female genitals and clitoral structures in all their newly revealed glory.

After 20 years of thinking it’s my fault my wife didn’t orgasm, Dr Cass showed me I was not to blame. I can now relax and enjoy sex.

The Elusive Orgasm is written with warmth, humour and compassion. It should be on every heterosexual man’s reading list.

The Elusive Orgasm is a must in all bedrooms and libraries… The book is highly recommended…
The Elusive Orgasm is something of a sexual bible. Dr Cass’s respect for whoever is reading her words of wisdom is what comes across most of all.
I bought The Elusive Orgasm and I found that within one month I had felt my first orgasm.
