Closer: Notes From the Orgasmic Frontier of Female Sexuality provides a fascinating social history of the female orgasm – where we’ve come and where we are today.” – CBC Books

“In her upcoming book, Closer, Barmak says there are countless…ways to ease into the kind of emotional and sexual exploration that can help close the orgasm gap between men and women.” – Sarah Ratchford, Cosmopolitan

Closer: Notes from the Orgasmic Frontier of Female Sexuality (is) an exploration of the ways female sexuality is being redefined in scientific research and today’s sex-obsessed culture. The book takes readers from a feminist sex shop in downtown Toronto to an orgasmic meditation demonstration in the Nevada desert, shedding light on the fears, hopes and frustrations of modern women and anyone identifying as female.” – Lauren Pelley, The Toronto Star

“Barmak’s book calls for the reorienting of our current male-focused approach to sex and pleasure, and a rethinking of what’s ‘normal.’
–  Librairie Drawn & Quarterly, Montréal
