“Are you close?” Is there any question that can evoke more anxiety for women in the bedroom?
We all know the feeling. You’re getting down with your partner, and you inevitably get to that awkward moment when you desperately start hoping you’re not going to be asked that question.
Because that one question forces you to make a horrible decision – to fake or not to fake.
Faking can feel so tempting. You don’t want to hurt your partner’s feelings. You want them to think they’ve done a good job. You feel too embarrassed to describe what you need to a partner, or too guilty to actually let them do it. Sometimes you don’t even know what you need in the first place.
But real talk – every time you fake an orgasm with a partner, a little piece of you dies inside.
Not only do you feel like you’ve missed out on being able to have an orgasm in the first place, but you also get so wrapped up in trying to convincingly fake an orgasm that you wind up enjoying sex even less. You’re more fixated on creating a good performance than on anything else.
You start feeling guilty for lying. Then you see your partner’s satisfied face, and you start feeling resentful. Why do they get to have all the fun, while you get left feeling frustrated and unsatisfied?
But what’s the alternative? Pretending you didn’t even hear the question in the first place? Just lying there quietly? Having to awkwardly explain to your partner that you’re not close? With choices like those, faking it feels like your least-terrible option…

I have bachelor’s degrees in human sexuality and sociology from Brown University, and a master’s degree in counseling psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. I’m also a licensed psychotherapist. I’ve been working in the sex therapy field since 2002 and have been featured by The New York Times, O: The Oprah Magazine, Real Simple, and many more.
I’ve struggled with my own orgasm challenges too! I spent years knowing how to orgasm on my own, but being unable to have them with a partner. It was a huge struggle for me, but I eventually learned how to get there. Over the years, I created a step-by-step system to replicate exactly what I did.
I’ve taught thousands of women just like you how to orgasm with a partner. I am deeply honored, humbled, and awestruck by the work I get to do!
This program is for women who can orgasm on their own, but haven’t been able to get there with a partner. (Important note: If you’ve never had an orgasm, or can’t reliably orgasm on your own, please check out the original version of Finishing School. You’ll learn how to orgasm both on your own and with a partner.)
As you’re reading through this page, you’re probably thinking of plenty of reasons why Finishing School won’t work for you.
All of those reasons are false.
I know it’s easy to come up with excuses, but there’s really only one factor that will determine whether or not Finishing School will work for you – your willingness to try.
Finishing School is only for women who are willing to put in effort.
It’s going to be a fun process, I promise! But you’re not going to have an instant orgasm the second you register. I’ll tell you exactly what to do, but you actually have to do it.
As part of your purchase, you’ll also get absolutely free access to the Orgasm Vault, which is chock-full of valuable orgasm- and sex-related tips, tricks, and resources beyond what’s covered in Finishing School. The Orgasm Vault will help you learn valuable lessons, like:
You’ll have lifetime access to the Vault, so you can keep improving your sex life long after you’ve had your first orgasms!
For years, I only offered private orgasm coaching. Working together, one-on-one, for the same amount of time as it takes to complete Finishing School costs over $5,000.
I created Finishing School because I wanted to make learning how to orgasm more affordable and accessible.
There’s no denying that Finishing School is an investment. But making this commitment to yourself can be transformative. Simply by signing up, you send yourself the powerful message that your pleasure is important.
You are important.
YOU. ARE. WORTH. IT.
If you commit yourself to the Finishing School system, you WILL learn how to orgasm with your partner.
I know orgasm is a sensitive topic, and I know how easy it can be to give up on yourself. But there has never been any research that shows that some women are just not capable of having an orgasm with a partner.
Thousands of women – and many self-proclaimed “hopeless cases” – have used the Finishing School system to learn how to orgasm.
This system works.
Now, you may be wondering about a money-back guarantee. You may be worried that you’ll be the one woman that the system won’t work for, and want the reassurance of knowing you can quit the program.
I completely understand those fears, but I don’t offer a money-back guarantee. Here’s why: I know that you’ll learn how to orgasm, and I want you to wholeheartedly commit to your orgasmic journey. I want you to go all in.
From my years of experience teaching women to orgasm, I know how easy it is for us to give up. I am fully transparent about the fact that learning how to orgasm is a process, and every woman is on a different timeline. I don’t want you to put pressure on yourself to learn how to orgasm before a 14-day refund window passes.
If you feel rushed to learn, that will guarantee that you won’t learn. Think about how that has worked in your own life – when you feel pressured to hurry up, or when your partner pressures you to hurry up, does it ever actually work? No. Not at all.
Instead, Finishing School will teach you how to be patient, kind, and loving towards yourself and your body. And it’s exactly from this place that you’ll learn how to have your first orgasm.
Plus, you’ll have my guarantees of lifetime access and future upgrades to keep you going. If you sign up for the VIP package, you’ll also have unlimited personal support.
I know it takes a leap of faith to start a journey like this, but I promise you, once you’ve had your first orgasm, it will all be worth it.
Finishing School been featured and reviewed in Refinery29, Glamour, Bustle, The Huffington Post, Lifehacker, Elle, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Prevention Magazine, and more.
Most importantly, it’s gotten rave reviews from the thousands of women who have gone through the program.
"We come to this place for so many different reasons and from so many different backgrounds. Vanessa understands and allows for each of us to do this work in our own time and at our own pace, while steadfastly supporting us in her knowledge that we are all capable of reaching orgasm and finding satisfaction in our sex lives. After our very first communication, in response to my concerns, Vanessa told me “I can promise you that your body is not broken”, and it was such a relief to hear that from the expert! For some of us, this journey is not a quick one, but Vanessa will never give up on us, and she helps us have the confidence and motivation to not give up on ourselves."
"I started Finishing School With A Partner because I knew that sex could be a lot better. I’ve always felt like something was missing and I felt a lot of shame asking for what I wanted. Finishing School gave me permission to take as long as I need to reach an orgasm, and to be able to ask my partner to slow down and to meet me on my level. I considered myself to be educated about female anatomy, but Vanessa explained it in a way that made me feel a lot better about needing specific kinds of stimulation, that I’m not inadequate, and that my body does exactly what it was designed to do. I am already feeling a huge difference in the way I think and approach sex with my partner. Vanessa had me trying a bunch of new methods to reach orgasm and changing things up, and varying the methods when I’m by myself has made it a lot easier to receive pleasure from my partner. There is so much to unpack in this course, I am excited to keep going. "
"Recently I’d been feeling disconnected from my body during sex. I could get myself off easily when alone, but when having sex with a partner the stress of reaching orgasm seemed to make my body shut down. Sex was feeling less fun and more stressful. The pressure to come led me to start faking it, which gave me a lot of shame. Thank god for Finishing School! Vanessa’s class has given me a new relationship to my body and for the first time I actually have a sensual connection to my vagina. It’s been a literal pleasure getting to know this side of myself! I no longer have to fake it and my sex-related anxiety is at an all-time low. The newfound sexual connection to my body is worth the price alone but then you throw orgasms into the mix and WOW; I’m a changed woman."
"This workshop was so much more than just learning how to orgasm. It forced me to think about my sexuality, explore my fears, and demand more for myself in the bedroom. Vanessa was responsive and supportive throughout the process. It was also empowering to learn how to get myself in the mood and mindset to engage with my body instead of relying on another person. Finally, even if I ever did gather the courage to shop for lube or a vibrator, I would not have known what to get, so I was so grateful that they came with the course (and they are both great!)."
"Vanessa Marin and her program are truly amazing. Finishing School helped me to understand female orgasms better, and made me feel more comfortable and accept who I am. I feel more confident and supported since taking Vanessa’s program. I have been able to orgasm with my partner and feel so much closer and intimate with him."
Because you’ve been trying your damnedest to just “let it happen”, but it doesn’t.
Because you’re tired of relationships getting tense, or even ending, because of your orgasm.
Because a little piece of you dies every time you fake an orgasm.
Because you’re sick of sex being something that you do for your partner instead of for yourself.
Because you don’t want to orgasm “some day”; you want to orgasm now. And you don’t want to waste another minute.
If you’ve never had an orgasm before, this is the right version of Finishing School for you.
