I’ve had that kind of orgasm exactly once in my life. I was fully clothed, in a room with a hundred other people, staring into the eyes of a complete stranger. It gave whole new meaning to the phrase, “Holy Fuck!” Although it was a peak and as yet unrepeated experience, it did forever change the orgasms I have on a regular basis. Even the quickies are more satisfying now, and even when I don’t have a traditional orgasm, it’s because the rest of the experience is intensely more pleasurable than just the last act.
The problem I see with Robinson’s work is that most people aren’t ready for it. She gives a number of exercises designed to lead people there on a physical level, but she doesn’t clearly state that the purpose of this kind of orgasm is union with the Divine. She doesn’t give guidance (nor do I think that kind of guidance is effective in a book form) about the spiritual component of the work. Her instructions left me thinking, “Why would I want to do this?” And I’ve experienced it—I do know why I’d want to do this! I really felt she missed the spiritual and evolutionary aspect of the process.
