“A physical orgasm is a blissful body experience. An intellectual orgasm is a blissful mental experience. The record seems to show that it is easier to have a physical orgasm than an orgasm of the mind.”
Maurice Saatchi is one of the few genuine iconoclasts. In an age of polite conformists and faux-contrarians, Saatchi can justifiably claim to have revolutionised British business and politics through his willingness to question received wisdom. In Orgasm he offers readers an unforgettable mental experience as he debunks some of the modern world’s most fondly held delusions.
In chapters ranging from etiquette to geopolitics, Saatchi takes on a series of contemporary shibboleths, among them “Dinner Parties Are Fun”, “Conservatives Are Cruel”, and “We Will Rest in Peace”. As thought-provoking as it is witty and pugnacious, Orgasm is an essential guide to seeing and thinking more clearly.
