In the shocking and hilarious documentary ORGASM INC., filmmaker Liz Canner takes a job editing erotic videos to be used for a drug trial sponsored by a pharmaceutical company that is developing an orgasm cream for women. The experience launches Canner on a nine year odyssey as she follows the companies that are racing to be the first to win FDA approval for a product to cure a new condition - “female sexual dysfunction”. The potential prize: billions of dollars in profits.

Featuring illuminating footage and powerful interviews with sexperts, therapists, doctors and scientists, this enlightening film explores the strange science of female pleasure and in the process reveals the warped mentality of our pharmaceutical and medical industries. Upbeat, engaging and provocative, ORGASM INC. will change the way you think about sex.
