Amplify Your Orgasm: New Book Explores Sex as a Layered Experience

Raksha Saraf Mar 12 2020

In Part I of his two book series, Amplify Your Orgasm, author and Orgasm and Relationship Coach, Michael Charming encourages his reader to go beyond the purely physical dimensions of sexual intimacy.

In Part I of his two book series, Amplify Your Orgasm, author and Orgasm and Relationship Coach, Michael Charming encourages his reader to go beyond the purely physical dimensions of sexual intimacy. Expanding this to include the physical, emotional, mental, energetic, and spiritual layers of the body, Charming invites the reader to take a journey he calls the Path of Amplified Orgasm. 

When we learn to see orgasm as a much deeper and richer experience than climax (a simple momentary physical release), we can realise that the Path of Amplified Orgasm is not just a means to an end. Rather, the journey itself is one that can lead to a richer experience of our life in general, a deeper connection to our life’s purpose, and more satisfying relationships built on deep and fulfilling intimacy. (Micheal Charming, Amplify Your Orgasm)

In addition to exploring the theoretical development of sexology through various scientific lenses, including biology, psychology, and even the latest in neuroscience, Charming also explores ancient ways of knowing sex and orgasm through disciplines such as Taoism, Tantra, and Yoga. The result is a perfectly melded and image-rich guide to not only more fully enjoy sex and orgasm, but also build intimacy for more nourishing relationships. 

The book also has an accompanying workbook that is full of practical exercises that build on the theory developed in the book to help the reader further explore and expand their consciousness through a more embodied experience of sex, intimacy, and indeed orgasm. 

Organized around what Charming calls the 5 layers of the embodied human experience, the book is laid out in 7 chapters:

Chapter 1: The Emotional Body

In this chapter, Charming explores the difference between feelings and emotions and how they relate to our experience of sex and pleasure as well as intimacy in our romantic relationships. Adding to the reader’s toolbox, Charming shares “the language of sensation” and how couples can use this to cultivate a deeper connection both. during sex, and even outside of the bedroom. 

Chapter 2: The Mental Body

What does the mind have to do with sex? After reading this chapter you will know. Drawing on the latest in neuroscience as well as poststructuralist identity theory, Charming challenges us to realize that we have a great deal of control over the ways in which we allow belief to shape our approach to sex, love, and intimacy. With a careful eye towards empowering the reader, Charming explores how to recognize the role that society has played, for good or ill, in constructing our perception and how to free ourselves from harmful and limiting beliefs about sex and pleasure. 

Chapter 3: The Energetic Body

For those new to exploring human energy fields and chakras, this chapter is designed to offer a gentle yet persuasive introduction to the concept that learning to “tune in” to energy offers a powerful avenue for amplifying sexual pleasure. With practical tips on how to notice and align energetic fields during intimacy, the workbook offers a practical guide for those new to such practices. 

Chapter 4: The Physical Body

This chapter offers an in-depth look at human anatomy through a body systems approach. Carefully connecting how systems such as the respiratory and cardiovascular systems are related to sex and pleasure, Charming takes the reader on a tour of the body that got missed in our high school health classes. 

Chapter 5: Genitals

Taking a detour on the physical layer of the body, Charming spends some extra time in this chapter looking at the genitals through various lenses. With a goal of helping the reader to develop a better relationship with their own genitals, this chapter explores the physical, emotional, and energetic experience of our genitals with a refreshing and playful tone. 

Chapter 6: The Spiritual Body: Desire and Fear

One of Charming’s goals in his coaching practice is to help his clients live a desire based life. In this chapter he explores the relationship between desire and fear, two aspects of the spiritual layer of the body which play a critical role in sex and intimacy. 

Chapter 7: Orgasm

The final chapter of Amplify Your Orgasm explores orgasm itself. Using the layered body approach developed in the book, Charming guides the reader through the many different types of orgasm including whole body orgasms, multiple orgasm, nipplegasms, and many more. In addition, he explores the theory of sexual polarity and how it operates to create the kind of energy needed for Amplified Orgasm.
