Orgasm Inc. screens tonight

Orgasm Inc. The Strange Science of Female Pleasure directed by Liz Canner

In the shocking and hilarious documentary ORGASM INC., filmmaker Liz Canner takes a job editing erotic videos as part of a pharmaceutical drug company’s drug trial. Her employer is developing what they hope will be the first Viagra drug for women that win FDA approval to treat a new disease: Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD). Liz gains permission to film the company for her own documentary. Initially, she plans to create a movie about science and pleasure but she soon begins to suspect that her employer, along with a cadre of other medical companies, might be trying to take advantage of women (and potentially endanger their health) in pursuit of billion dollar profits.

ORGASM INC. is a powerful look inside the medical industry and the marketing campaigns that are literally and figuratively reshaping our everyday lives around health, illness, desire — and that ultimate moment: orgasm.

Upbeat, engaging, enlightening, and provocative, ORGASM INC. will change the way you think about sex.
