The Super Orgasm

For most women multiple orgasms can seem almost mythical. But some women orgasm not once, twice or even ten times, but 60, 70 or 100 times: a super-orgasm. In this documentary, a group of ordinary women with an extraordinary ability have volunteered to be put through a series of challenging tests in an unprecedented scientific investigation to reveal the truth behind the super-orgasm. With the help of these women - who include a motorbike-mad engineering student, a stay-at-home mum and a woman whose passion is singing in her Catholic church choir - a group of international scientists from a range of disciplines attempt to measure and record the super-orgasmic phenomenon for the first time. They hope to see how the brain and the body react before, during and after super-orgasm, to find out if these women are wired differently to the rest of us or whether we can all learn to have a super-orgasm. Although super-orgasmic women are still in a minority, the findings from this pioneering study could give scientists a greater insight into female sexuality as a whole. Can we all learn something from these women at the extreme of human sexuality?
