Orgasm Inc.: The Story of OneTaste
audience Reviews, 38% Audience Score
- Rating: 2 out of 5 starsOut of millions of people touched by the One Taste organization, the documentary only found about 5 people who related on camera that they had bad experiences, two of whom didn't feel trustworthy to me. It was mostly centered on the usual "problematic" founder trope, but failed to churn up much beyond what one would expect for an organization that effectively sells sexual experiences.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsFilled to the brim with footage from inside OneTaste, I found the film engrossing from the start. Oftentimes, I find myself stopping before the end when films turn to trauma porn but I found the filmmakers to be quite tactful and honest in their storytelling, especially from survivors. I also really appreciated the framing with other events throughout the film like the rise of startups in Silicon Valley and the MeToo movement. Thought-provoking film that left me satisfied.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsDefinitely one important story to be shared...As much I am a feminist, that much I believe in setting healthy boundaries for both masculine and feminine energies (biologically terminized as genders). Definitely matriarchat is no serving once its wicked and manipulated. Me personally, I have experienced knowing from my enviroment a personality characterized with the common traits as Nicole would be define "connecting eyes", "charismatic", stubborn, great seller, attractive etc...In my case, thanks god, I have never experienced any issues as victimes in the movie, but I can definitely confirm the way of a seduction, admiration, validation and forbidden fruit this person was addressing my direction. To make the short story long, I got twice with her in the same situation in the public, when I knew she kind of tried me to pimped me to her males friends, that would benefit lately to her. She was my close friend in my very early 20s, I was naive that time to tell her after first time to stop, because she did it again. Certainly after that I was sure, that she was not OK, but as I that time really liked her and professionally admired her, cutting and loosing the connection felt painful and terrifyieng for me, yet I did it. Hope, all young girls, women and men and anyone defining themselves any other gentle way could see this eye opening movie, and rather instead of turning into some hip cool sexual practise rather slowly finds a proper therapy that also has a certain healthy boundaries. It is also not an easy thing to find a good professional therapist - but using the instinct, and actually feeling good in the guts helps a lot. And if there is still on skeptical rational switch on (as described in the movie when the guy did not allow Nicole to imprint him), I would then explore more what stands behind the skeptical inner voice and then firstly allow moving forward with the therapy. But at the end :) who does look for, that one also finds. :))
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsOne of the best of 2022. If you understand & appreciate the depth of corruption in America, then you will enjoy this intriguing doc.
- Rating: 0.5 out of 5 starsThe facts that were presented bored me a lot because they could have easily been misrepresented. Also, there was no participation from the active community, which leads me to believe that the story is being presented in a rather one-dimensional manner. It also appears to be yet another effort to discredit a person, a cause, or a movement in an attempt to find a victim for society's problems. There's hopefully more to today's journalism than painting the bad guy in predominantly dark colours.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsAs a person who was in Onetaste, I'm happy the documentary shows the truth behind the leader. She is very sociopathic and people will always follow her no matter what. But the sad truth is that she cares about herself and money more than anything and anyone else. Except maybe her dad. This is a fascinating watch for those who've been in an MLM or want to be aware of them.
- Rating: 0.5 out of 5 starsTerrible compilation of sensationalism and unrelated footage; gross negligence in lack of journalism. So slanted it's irrelevant. Just another cancel culture film attempting to profiteer from demonizing woman's sexuality.
- Rating: 1 out of 5 starssensational more than factual. it has me lose heart a bit that the beauty of the real story isn't even close to being told. i mean, but sex sells after all... i just had higher hopes for netflix's integrity and the integrity of some of those who appeared here. no one is perfect. and i hope some day the full story is told.
- Rating: 5 out of 5 starsI was involved with this organization for a while and know a bit about what goes on on the inside. I was present for several of the shots filmed. I thought this documentary captured the story well. My critique is that it lacks details and nuance at time (likely due to time constraints), a few clips are clearly showed for shock value (which I found unnecessary), and I wish more care had been taken to anonymize a few faces of the innocent. But all that said the story is accurate, well told and I'm grateful the film was made.
