Program Title: WINGS #11-22 The Orgasm Gap
Description: Dr. Leonore Tiefer gave the keynote address at a conference on The Medicalization of Sex, organized by the Simon Fraser University Department of Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies in 2011. She says everyone's sexuality is different, there is no "normal"- that efforts to define a normal and produce it through medication fail, and that "sex belongs with dancing, not digestion." She calls for research on the actual effects of sex drugs, including Viagra, on how couples relate in the real world.

Host(s): Frieda Werden
Featured Speakers/Guests: Dr. Leonore Tiefer has doctorates in physiological psychology and in clinical psychology with a specialty in sexology. She has taught at two medical schools. She co-founded The New View Campaign against pharmaceutical corruption and cooptation of the sexology field.
