Becoming Cliterate - Book Signing with Dr. Laurie Mintz - Tues May 9th, 6-8pm
Join Wild Iris as we welcome local author Dr. Laurie Mintz for a book signing and discussion of her new book, Becoming Cliterate! Laurie will help us all become more cliterate and answer all your questions, Tuesday night, May 9th, from 6-8pm at the Civic Media Center.
We’ve been thinking about sex all wrong. Mainstream media, movies, and porn have taught us that sex = penis + vagina, and everything else is just secondary. The problem is, people with clitorises don’t orgasm this way. We’ve separated thier most reliable route to orgasm—clitoral stimulation—from how they feel they should orgasm—penetration. As a result, we’ve created a pleasure gap.
In Becoming Cliterate, psychology professor and human sexuality expert Dr. Laurie Mintz exposes the broader cultural problem that’s perpetuating this gap, and what we can do about it. By dispelling the lies, misunderstandings, and myths that have been holding us back, Becoming Cliterate tackles both personal and political problems and replaces them with updated outlooks and practical skills needed to change our collective perspective on sex.
The revolution is cuming—and Becoming Cliterate offers a radical, simple solution to progress and pleasure for all.
Eve Ensler, Author of the Vagina Monologues, had this to say about Becoming Cliterate – “An excellent, thorough, inspiring and much needed guide to the source of our deepest energy, pleasure, and power—the clitoris. Everyone needs to read this book and become CLITERATE.”

We've been thinking about sex all wrong. Mainstream media, movies, and porn have taught us that sex = penis + vagina, and everything else is just secondary. Standard penetration is how men most reliably achieve orgasm. The problem is, women don't orgasm this way. We've separated our most reliable route to orgasm--clitoral stimulation--from how we feel we should orgasm--penetration.
"Honey, I'm too tired" may sound like just another excuse--but for millions of American women, it's simply the truth. They may settle for no sex at all or the obligatory "I'd better do this for my marriage" sex--often to the detriment of their relationships. In this guide, Dr. Laurie B. Mintz shows women how to bring their libido back to life--and put the passion back into their lives.
