I Have Questions about HYPNOTISM: A HISTORY

1. How can a book about hypnotism, in which women seem to be orgasming every other page, be so boring?

2. Honestly, did people spend from 1790-1890 making women orgasm in public, but pretending like they didn’t know what they were doing? I swear, if you wrote “A Secret Orgasming Woman History of the 18th and 19th Century” it would be just like regular history but with a “yes, they were orgasming” every time a woman went into a fit, had a small seizure, and then languished around in a state of contentment, which seems to be how women spend the majority of their time outside the house.

Don’t get me wrong. I’d rather live now than in 1790, for sure. But, seriously, if all women were doing is going from one unrecognized orgasm to the next, I may have to rethink that.
