The author has written several other works in the same genre.


“Answering a bizarre newspaper ad at a research clinic, Janine Taylor’s life is turned topsy-turvy when she agrees to be a test subject for a study on extending the length of orgasms for women.

Caught in a debauched world of sexual nirvana, Janine soon becomes their star pupil. Can she go back to her old life? Given the choice, would she even want to?”


Every genre has its own set of (often) unwritten expectations and conventions. For example, a storyline that would stretch the ability to suspend disbelief to the breaking point in some genres may hit the bullseye in erotica. While erotica may not need the same character and plot development as other genres, ignoring the basics of storytelling won’t work either. Two Minute Orgasm hits the sweet spot, with enough in the way of plot and character development to draw the reader in and give the sex scenes some context and credibility. With the exception of a poor job of proofing and copyediting, which left much to be desired, Two Minute Orgasm is a solid effort.


Given the genre, it should go without saying that if you don’t like explicit sex in your books, this isn’t for you. If you’re bothered by bondage, multiple simultaneous partners, or girl on girl action, the same caveat applies.

Format/Typo Issues:

A large number of typos and copy editing misses. The most common issues are missing words (‘the’ and ‘a’) and verb tense errors.

Rating: *** Three stars
