William Reich was an Austrian-American psychiatrist and psychoanalyst during the 20s and was involved with Freuds Psychoanalytic Polyclinic. He is best known for his studies on the link between human sexuality and emotions; He discovered that the function of the orgasm is to maintain an energy equilibrium by discharging excess biological energy that builds up naturally in the body. Reich’s orgasm theory indicated that the libido was a real physical energy that possibly might be measured quantitatively. He coined the term “orgastic potency,”; the capacity for total discharge of sexual excitation in the genital embrace.and for what he said was the discovery of a form of energy that permeated the atmosphere and all living matter he called “orgone.” He built boxes called The Orgon Energy Accumulator which patients could sit inside, and which were intended to harness the energy for what he believed were its health benefits.
