Out of the land of Kinsey from the heartland of America where Masters and Johnson first researched sex comes Science, Sex and The Ladies a frank, irreverent non fiction movie, humorous but serious with a simple yet far reaching argument; our (mis)understanding of the female orgasm has broken our sexual cultural. By looking back through the hallmarks of sexual research that define our scientific and cultural understanding of sex and orgasm, and by taking a witty look at the history and culture that shaped them, the film discusses not only how we ended up this way but most importantly why we need to change. It deconstructs the popular notions about women and sex through a straightforward discussion about what is really known about orgasm, and in the process, sheds light on how bias in science, bad cultural representations and the “lab of public opinion” mix together to create false ideas about what sex and orgasm “should be” for women. It reveals a modern sexual reality which leaves many women feeling frustrated, ashamed, or inadequate; men perplexed and often hurt by the sexual relationship they share with the women they love; and many girls feeling confused about their very real, yet culturally complicated desire. Science, Sex, and the Ladies is a visual essay about the real inequality between the sex lives of men and women. It is a deeply researched argument with the onscreen citations to prove it. A must see for any person who's ever thought about, experienced, hoped to experience, or been involved in a female orgasm, and that's a whole lot of people.
