Orgasm Inc. (2009)

This is an important documentary that comments on the way the pharmaceutical industry and (essentially greedy) physicians and scientists conspire to create disorders to enrich themselves at the expense of a gullible public.

Netflix blurb: "With humor and a wealth of research, director Liz Canner examines how drug companies promote and profit from the myth of female sexual dysfunction as they compete to produce the first FDA-approved "cure" for this condition. The provocative documentary features enlightening interviews with a passionate sex shop owner and a vintage-vibrator collector who argue that it's society -- not women's bodies -- that needs fixing" 78 minutes, 2009
