Tracing the humble history of the vibrator, Passion and Power reveals how legal and medical institutions continue to manipulate women's sexual lives.  Entertaining and informative, the filmmakers expose the dark and secret past of the vibrator and its checkered career- revered, maligned, then banished for forty years and finally resurrected in the 1970's.

Now, thirty years later, the female orgasm is again under attack. In 2005, former fifth grade teacher, Joanne Webb, was arrested for selling vibrators to two undercover cops in a small Texas town. It turns out that selling vibrators is illegal in Texas and three other states. Viagra, on the other hand, is advertised and sold legally in all of the United States. [adult content]
