Orgasm Inc.

Synopsis: 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 that wins FDA approval to treat a new disease: Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD). Liz gains permission to film the company for her own documentary. Initially, she plans to create a movie about science and pleasure but she soon begins to suspect that her employer, along with a cadre 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 -- and that ultimate moment: orgasm.

Okay, now could

you just move down?

Go ahead

and move down.

Okay, move down

a little more.

There you go.

Okay.

Now just make yourself

comfortable, relax.

I'm going to

leave now.

What's an orgasm

like for you?

I'm going to say that

it's like a blooming flower.

It comes from the roots

and grows up

until it spreads beautiful aroma

around the room.

It's like coming down

from the highest

and the best

rollercoaster ride.

I think it's

different sound.

It's definitely

a different sound.

It would be like "ahhh"

with the rollercoaster

but with the orgasm

it would be "ohhh. "

Is there something

that comes to your mind

when you think about

having an orgasm?

War.

That's what I think about

is the war in my head.

I'd like to.

I hope I do.

What's wrong with me...

I can't?

And so by the time

I get through

having this conversation

in my head,

I am not involved

anymore in the now

and in the activity

that's going on.

Why does it hurt you?

It's vey frustrating.

It's vey, vey frustrating

to enjoy sex

and to never get to

have that release.

I don't want to be hurt

anymore about this.

In this morning's "Healthy Woman"

something new to deal with.

An astonishing statistic.

Forty-three percent

of women aged 18 to 59

have some kind of

sexual dysfunction.

Female Sexual Dysfunction.

Symptoms include

lack of desire,

lack of pleasure,

painful intercourse.

This is a vey new

field of medicine

but there's a good chance

the problem can be tackled.

The FDA has only

approved Viagra for men

but some doctors

such as Jennifer Berman

believe Viagra might

help women too.

As many woman

hold their breath and wait

for the cream or spray or pill

that might work for them,

the race is on

to be first.

The prize:
Undoubtedly

billions upon billions of dollars.

Vivus was a pharmaceutical company

that was busy developing

an Of9aSM CfeaM

for women.

Your name?

My name is

Liz Canner.

Okay, iust a moment.

I'm a documentay filmmaker

and Vivus contacted me

because they needed

some help

with the clinical trial

of their new drug.

Vivus is a company

that develops drugs

for male erectile

dysfunction

and we're currently

getting into

the female sexual

dysfunction arena.

We're doing some

early phase clinical trials.

What we want

people to do

is they're going have to

come into a doctor's office

and they're going to

have to apply this drug

and then we are going to have

to measure a sexual response.

What we intend on using

is visual sexual stimulation

which is visually

explicit material.

Well, we need some help with

the actual production of the video.

Vivus wanted me to

put together erotic video

for use during the testing

of their new drug.

I thought, "How could

I take this job?"

How could I not

take this job?

I was curious

about the latest

scientific thinking about

women and pleasure.

So, I gained permission to film

Vivus for my own documentay.

Little did I know that I

would spend nine years

documenting the medical

industy's attempt

to change our understanding

of the meaning of health,

illness, desire, and that

ultimate moment:
Orgasm.

What's the name of

the company mean?

It's Latin for "alive"

and I just had the feeling

that our obiective was to put life

back into dead penises.

Twelve years ago today,

I incorporated the company.

And as you can see it's

a real joyous, boisterous crowd.

Vivus 12th Anniversay April 16,

Celebrating 12 Years of Sexcess.

Why did you

found Vivus?

After a radical prostatectomy

for cancer

my privy organ was

no longer alive.
