The truth is: Most women do not have satisfying sex lives. SLOW
SEX can change that.
Better sex is about one thing: better
orgasm. This life-altering guide teaches men and women how to use the
practice of Orgasmic Meditation-or OM-to slow down, connect emotionally,
and achieve authentic female sexual satisfaction. The promise: In just
fifteen minutes every woman can become orgasmic. And, with the right
partner and the right technique, that orgasm could last and
last!
For more than a decade, Nicole Daedone has been leading the
"slow sex movement," which is devoted to the art and craft of the
female orgasm. OM is the act of slowing down, tuning in, and
experiencing a deeper spiritual and physical connection during sex. SLOW
SEX reveals the philosophy and techniques of OM and includes a
step-by-step, ten-day OM starter program, as well as OM secrets for
achieving ultimate satisfaction. It also includes exercises to help
enhance readers' "regular" sex lives, such as Slow Oral for Her, Slow
Oral for Him, and Slow Intercourse.
This book is the argument for
daily intimacy, and for paying attention as the foundation of pleasure,
all with a focus on the female experience.

I don't F*** I make love
I didn't like this book because she kept using the "f" word. It was like an oxy-morn. An analogy similar to the way I felt would be similar to going to a yoga class to relax and the instructor was playing hard-rock. I didn't find it classy, or in good taste. I didn't read the whole book because it was not bringing me good vibes. She say thing like "Lay out exact instructions for how you want him to F*** you, with as much specificity as possible"(page 30). I don't want my husband to "F" me! I want him to make love. It was bothersome I didn't find the language healing at all. However, she does have good ideas, but this book was not for me.

This practice was recommended to me by a mentor whom I trust
This practice was recommended to me by a mentor whom I trust. I read the book and it was a WOW! I wanted to experience it. My husband read the book and agreed to give it a try to see. I was concerned about "What's in it for him?" Well apparently this is the booster rocked for personal growth and evolution. I never knew or appreciated the mystery and power of this space between my legs, hidden and rarely consulted. I'm learning how much beauty and power I have as a woman and that I'm the Source of this for my man. Pretty transformative.
We have taken the "How to Om" class and are enrolled to take the Relationship by Design course. Realized we have not deliberately Designed our relationship but have just responded as best we can as the situations of life arose. To be consciously co creating with a blueprint that satisfies both of us - another WOW!!! The Power of Orgasm is transforming Us, more Intimacy, More Connection, More Love!
Thank you Nicole Daedone

Great read
I originally bought this book for my husband, but I got it and read it first. As someone who is very sexual and very open about my desires and fantasies and kinks and what feels good and what doesn't, I didn't think I would learn much from this book. I was wrong. This book is excellent.

This book speaks of true pleasure. Better sex. Better orgasms. As women many of us do not speak about difficulty reaching orgasm. I take medication so I have struggled with it due to that, but I also have had times where I can achieve orgasm without any issues. I am hypersexual though and never satisfied. This has helped me with that, because I was never satisfied and being able to achieve better, longer, deeper more meaningful orgasms and sex has made me more satisfied with the sex, and has made my mind no longer wander.

This is the book to read if you want to learn more and improve your sex life. I always cringe when I hear people talk about 50 shades of grey. I feel bad for women who are stuck faking orgasms, or those who have never achieved orgasm, which was a surprisingly amount.

Sex is not just about the end result. It can be extremely pleasurable throughout. More people can achieve vaginal orgasms. One of the biggest misconceptions women have is that they can only achieve orgasm a certain way. Through the guidance of this book, an open mind, and a willingness to explore your own body and your pleasures you will find a much better and more satisfying sex life.

It's good for women and also for men if they pay attention
I have been to two of the One taste seminars in NYC, and they do not communicate the OM concept any where near as well as NIcole does in this book. I was walking away from this practice until I read her book

Slow Sex... well ok...
My Thoughts: If you are look to spice up your relationship, this book may be of interest. I liked the chapters on "What Men Should Know About Women" and "What Women Should Know About Me". Daedone presents the material in a straight-forward manner without being vulgar or overly explicit. Her knowledge and excitement as she talks about sex is evident throughout the book. She feels comfortable discussing the topic and leading others to feel comfortable and her book is a wonderful means of facilitating conversation to your lover about what you like or dislike.

Helpful for a limited audience
The techniques taught in this book will be helpful to many people - but be aware that you might not be one of them. You need a committed partner who cares about your sex life. Personally, I don't have that, so this just made me depressed. It also seems to feature primarily young people. Like it or not stuff happens to both men and women over 50, and it changes the landscape. While we may still highly desire sex, it's not so easy to find a partner, deal with medical hurdles, etc., and it doesn't help when we are sidelined in nearly every discussion or image of sex.

15 minutes....I don't think so
Women are not just clitorises. Please buy and read Naomi Wolf's latest book Vagina: A New Biography. The amazing and profound information contained in that book could change any woman's sexual/psychic/emotional life for the best. I think Daedone means well, but again, women require much more than fifteen minutes of clitoral rubbing to feel completely fulfilled; indeed, the way women are constructed sexually demands much more....for one thing, the clitoral system extends far into the vagina and the so called G-spot is only one orgasm-inducing part of it; there is also a spot near the cervix that if properly stimulated, will result in some of the most emotionally intense orgasms imaginable. Perhaps it appeals mainly to men who don't want to deal with the emotional dangers of actually getting naked-on all levels- in a bed alone with a woman for several hours as well as to women who are used to perfunctory and truncated sex with their partners and feel that that is all they can ever hope for. 70 positive reviews of this book seems very sad to me.

Narcissistic & Vaguely Sacrilegious
I'm a 28 yr old male virgin, waiting for marriage (yup!), with a special lady in mind. I bought this hoping to discover a way to bless this young lady with multiple, long lasting, intense orgasms, back to back. This book sounded too good to be true at first; I can do that in just 15 minutes? Wow! Only maybe not so much! This book definitely has something to say on how to bring your wife to orgasm by slowly, and therefore more completely, drawing it out. It also offers handy information on what all women generally find amazing about slow, sensuous sex, tho some of this you can easily find on Reddit & thoughtcatalog.com; the catch is, this "slow sex" is a thing called OM, Orgasmic Meditation. it involves, essentially, a (usually) male "stroker" stroking the woman's genitals, she being bottom-half naked, laying on her back, legs open, he being fully clothed, for 15 minutes. Google it. It wasn't at all about "slow sex" per say (kind of at the end), but a sort of foreplay (if you will) to enable a woman to embrace orgasm by focusing on the sensations she feels when her partner strokes her. The form & overall atmosphere recommended for each 15 minute session is "non-romantic," specifically that it shouldn't be done romantically, & that there should be no desire to try & "please each other." She recommends each participant do it selfishly, for their own pleasure rather than the others. Her argument is that people can't be honest when trying to please each other...?! While there is intimacy & a real, vivid erotic energy, it's general gender analysis & advocacy for selfish sexual pleasure seeking in relationships disappointed me. This, & that Nicole blatantly encourages living ones life led by ones desires, untamed, unrestrained love for ones own pleasure, rather than someone else's. This is dangerous for believers of the Christian od Jewish, or any religious faith that teaches selflessness & self discipline. She essentially encourages women & everyone really to be their own "god." SELF WORSHIP!! Nicole gets preachy toward the end, unfortunately. Her directions come off as clinical & somewhat unfeeling at times, tho she claims being the opposite. Afterward, I googled OneTaste, an OM community, & found that Nicole is the founder of this practice which invites people to "live workshops" where they invite the first-time women participants to gather in big circles & remove their underwear, take off their skirts or pants & lie down on these "nests" (pillows & yoga mats) while strangers, usually men, put on latex gloves, kneel down & touch them in very specific ways. Too much. The goal is to help your wife stay "in her body" when she's close to orgasm, to stay in tune with her body enough to sustain the sensations of pleasure longer. Some of this books language as well is rather grandiose & fanciful. There's still some good info here, but unfortunately it's muddled with Nicole's own doctrine on self absorption/worship & worship of pleasure.

This is one of those books everyone should read.
I have been trying to be the best I could since pre teen. Experience, listening, and learning from whatever source has taught me a lot. This is one of the best books I have found on the subject. It really maps things out and tells you where to go. But more important it teaches us a lot about the feelings.
The first half is about OM, which is an interesting concept that I would use under certain circumstances. The second half of the book is really helpful for those who need the basics to many great things for us who are more experienced.
This book is more than important if you are long term married and not sharing sex.
I think many guys think that the difference between sex with themselves and sex with a woman is that he will have help, if there is a woman.
I learned young that if you help a woman come first, she will be there for you in every way she can, unlike you have ever experienced. I admit I meet some women who just lay back and enjoy and wonder why they never see me again. But they are the minority.
So if you are long term married, please read and take this book to heart. You need it more than most. If you haven't given her a real deep kiss with tongue and loving it today, please start kissing and read this book. For the rest I highly recommend it.

Bad writing but the OM technique works.
As one reviewer noted, there's a lot of "fluff". You can basically skip the first two chapters. Also, there’s a lot of stuff that would be irrelevant to people who have fairly healthy sex lives. Most of the quotes/anecdotes are kinda far out there, like one from a women who’s afraid of someone seeing her pussy, followed by the author recommending that people like her go get a bikini wax so they’ll see how it’s no big deal. Anyway...

The OM technique and "10-day starter program": 4-5 stars.
On the onetaste website, there's a 7-minute video that's supposed to show you the OM technique. However, the pussy is blurred out! HTF are you going to learn the technique if you can't even see what's going on??! Thankfully, this book is helpful in clarifying the technique.
However, even though there was a "troubleshooting" chapter, there was a lack of info on side effects. After OMing a couple times, I kept spasming/jolting while I was on my way to falling asleep (with no one touching me). I couldn't find any info on this. I wondered if my partner had stroked me too hard and now I'd never fall asleep peacefully thanks to OM. But then after another session in which I had an orgasm, the random spasming/jolting finally went away. Whew. If it hadn't I'd be real mad at Nicole Daedone. Also, the OM orgasm was different from any other orgasm I'd had before. Not sure if I actually like it.. (Different for everyone, but I just wanted to warn others).

Nicole Daedone writes as if she's giving a talk in front of you. Which seems okay at first, a quick and easy read. (and expected, since she gives a lot of talks. I watched one on the onetaste website once, but she wasn't a great speaker, either. She gave pretty bad answers to some questions.)
But then.... she used the text/online acronym "BTW". WTF?! I'm not that demanding of a reader, but if you're writing a book for print, I expect to not see any crap like this (is it that hard to write out three short words in the context of a book?!). In another instance where she's telling readers that they should journal after an OM session, she wrote, "You'll thank me later." Umm WTF are you s***ting me? In summary: the writing and tone are not the best. But you’ll be fine if you have higher tolerance to crap. And those quotes and anecdotes are entertaining at the least, even if you don't quite relate to them.

I’d highly recommend getting “She Comes First” by Ian Kerner instead of or in addition to “Slow Sex”. It’s way better written (the Ph.D at the end of his name means something!) and more complete (ie. in Slow Sex, there wasn’t much value added in the female anatomy section).

Yes. This book is worth reading. Good stuff. Thought provoking. That's all I'll say. Except that some of the gendered generalizations did not fly with me, particularly the ones about women needing to stop breaking down in order to make a man feel safe in bed. Nevertheless, if you skip the chapters about what men and women really want, you'll very much enjoy the rest. And no, I have not practiced this technique yet but I am intrigued to know that it exists. And now that is really all I'll say. Yes. This book is worth reading. Good stuff. Thought provoking.

Fantastic and moving
I did not expect a book about a sexual practice to move me emotionally as this book has. It is very- very! - explicit. You will have no doubt what she is talking about on a "technical" level but the real juice here is how it addresses the longing we all have for true intimacy and connectedness. And how it holds out promise that these unmet desires actually can be fulfilled. You just have to be able to put aside your preconceived cultural conditioning and let go. Let go into your desire. And trust it. Trust yourself. Trust your partner. Highly recommend.

It's about breathing and yoga type sex. I did not read it, just flipped thru it. Not what I expected.

Slow it down...
In the fast pace world of information age we move at a mile a minute. Juggling tasks, absorbing information and getting all we need to get done in what seems to be a shrinking day.
Rarely are we told to slow down and grasp onto the moment and enjoying pleasure for pleasure sake, especially when it comes to sex. Quickies are great and abundance sex can be a blast but most individuals have unfulfilling sex lives. Mostly resulting from bad habits we have picked up from popular culture, porn, or bad lovers.
What Daedone has masterfully accomplished in her book, Slow Sex: The Art and Craft of the Female Orgasm is to teach a revolutionary method which she calls orgasmic mediation (OM). She promises that she can in give any woman an orgasm in fifteen minutes.
How did she come to this discover, well she admits she enjoys orgasms. Daedone is the founder of OneTaste, where she's been teaching people how to have better sex and relationship.
First she demystifies sex and strips it down to the basics. Sex is about power and power is about energy. At any age, sex can give us all endless energy and a new vitality in our lives. She explores the differences between men and women. Men are built for efficiency and speed; whereas women are a web of connections. Their sexual organs symbolically are internal and are interwoven to the many side of women: the heart, the mind, the soul.
This book is excellent for any male to get a no nonsense breakdown about the important aspects of the female body and how to satisfy their lover. For women, this book gives you the freedom to unblock yourself and enjoy the sensation of sexual pleasure.
The female focus is apparent whereas OM for women has a whole chapter, OM for men is a short part in the appendix.
This book is a marvelous candid exploration into the world of orgasms. It is good for novice or experience lovers, it will truly give you the freedom to connect and discover the boundless energy that is ignited by sex. Daedone's work is also a good reference for any library as it is a resource for when you want to reboot your sexual desires.

A one trick pony - OMing (a form of sexual mindfulness) is her universal answer. She guarantees women an orgasm every time by redefining "orgasm" to not require climax. In fact it is stretched to the point that it is present even in boring or somewhat unpleasant episodes – since you’re being so very open and Zen that you accept them all with equal-mindedness. Hmmm … does orgasm mean anything at all in this context? By the end orgasm almost seems to be an attitude or state of mind.

Informative, interesting, engaging and hits the nail on the head.
I couldn't put this down. The discourse about expressing desires and experiencing sensation is good for everyone, not just people with vulvas. Slowing down, becoming present, and being able to state what you want (even if it's just an experiment in the moment) are important skills that are under trained in our society.

I 💓 SLOW SEX
Yes, Yes, Yes! That's the only thing I can say about this book. Nicole Daedone tells about the best way to set the foundation of every couple's sex lives. Orgasmic Meditation aka OM is the gateway to understand women's needs and pleasure zone. I like that she tells in her workshops how it changes many couples lives and pumped their sex lives. I like reading personal stories and great instructions. I bought the book and audio book and I enjoyed both of them

Just one approach
I often wonder what kind of people spend their time professionally researching methods of sexual intercourse, and even more than that, where they get their funding. For some reason I get the distinct impression that they probably don't have much fun, despite the job title and flow of easy money.

This book isn't wrong, but neither is it the be all and end all. Slow sex and romance, yeah that works sometimes. As does a host of other things.

Sometimes a woman wants it hard and fast, strong and passionate. At least some women, sometimes. It varies. You have to feel your way throw things. But that's not something I expect people so alienated from their own being that they have to refer to books to learn how to have sex to really comprehend.

Try to enjoy the ride -- that's the point.

This is a frank discussion of some women's behaviours.
Nicole Daedone has written a rather detailed description of her personal experiences while learning about one aspect of the human reproductive system. She turned her experience into a commercially successful teaching activity that has gained many adherents. One should always keep in mind that the range of behaviours is very, very large and every person is a unique individual.

Hmmm
Interesting in theory but in the end it took an uneccessarily long time to explain a straight forward process. Those of the more spiritual persuasion will probably find the tempo about right. It was not a bad book, just not great.

For reasons that I suspect that have more to do with this country's puritanical conditioning than with me, it gave me pause to read a book about sex. But I'm glad I did. It's worth it.

Required reading for every man
Absolutely brilliant. I'm a little challenged by the concept of Orgasmic Meditation, but the rest of the book is filled with so much good information that it has dramatically improved my sex life. True insights into how women actually think about sex in details that even women themselves aren't aware of. The best two chapters are on the ten things that men need to know about women and vice versa.

For people who have bad sex
I thought, "Slow Sex" I could get on board with that! Maybe this book will have some interesting insight. But no... turns out it's not about sex at all. Nowhere in this book does the author actually mention the female orgasm. She basically describes a technique of "orgasmic meditation," which consists of staring at your partner's bits, describing them in detail, and repetitively stroking them in the exact same spot for 15 minutes. That's it. You don't have to buy the book. You're welcome. The rest is all fluff. She does go on with a bunch of listening exercises to teach you to be more in tune with your partner. Honestly the whole thing just seemed really sad, it made me think it must be targetd at people who have really terrible sex lives. Since my partner and I are already pretty open and honest and in tune with each other, this book just seemed sort of funny. And really disappointing.
