  • Canner's deft expos also makes clear that some of the highest-profile "experts" are shills for Big Pharma, and that genital mutilation is thriving in the West, in the form of cosmetic surgery.

  • Can best be described as a compelling mess.

  • Some subjects are so compelling that not even bad filmmaking can ruin them. And for most of "Orgasm Inc.'' it feels as if Canner is trying with all her might to do just that.

  • Many documentaries lose focus or become unwieldy as their directors uncover unexpected facts about their subjects, but Canner is able to keep Orgasm Inc. trained on its eponymous theme ...

    February 16, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Essentially, "Orgasm Inc." illustrates a time-honored principle of capitalism, which is that you'll never go broke by convincing women that something is wrong with them and then selling them something to make it better.

    February 16, 2011
  • By taking a playful approach to a deeply serious subject, [director Liz Canner] explores the link between female sexuality and corporate profits with a style that's as entertaining as it is revelatory.

Audience Reviews for Orgasm, Inc.

  • Jun 15, 2012
    As insightful as the documentary "Orgasm, Inc" is at times, it should also come as no surprise that pharmaceutical companies are mostly just interested in profits. In fact, they are willing to invent illnesses, just to create patients from healthy people, in this case, Female Sexual Dysfunction. This turns out to be another episode in a long cycle in the misunderstanding and mistreatment of women that goes back centuries.(And I'll bet you thought "Hysteria" was just joking.) Documentarian Liz Canner enters the picture when she is hired by Vivus to develop erotic videos for their clinical trials of a female viagra they are trying to develop.(It's a tough job but somebody has to do it.) That seems to be the most benign solution to this non-existent problem, with none lacking any serious side effects. The truth of the matter, smartly explained here, is that there is no problem because there is no normal, with everybody being wired differently. Actually, porn works. Or we could just get rid of religion.
