The Female Orgasm combines sex education and women's empowerment with a hearty dose of laughter. The program brings a playful, honest approach to this topic, packing the house on college campuses. The Female Orgasm presenters are often complimented on presenting "sexy" material in a tasteful, appropriate manner; knowing that people who are well-informed about sexual topics are more likely to make healthy decisions about the risks associated with sex. The program is inclusive of people of all genders and sexual orientations.
