In this shocking and hilarious documentary, filmmaker Liz Canner takes a job editing erotic videos for a drug trial for a pharmaceutical company. Her employer is developing what they hope will be the first Viagra drug for women to win FDA approval to treat a new disease: Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD).
Liz obtains the company‚Äôs permission to make her own documentary, initially to create a movie about science and pleasure. However her suspicions are aroused that her employer, along with a host 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 ‚Ä" and that ultimate moment: orgasm.
