Etymology: Derived from the names of world's finest food and wine, "Petrossian" the ultimate producer of caviar and "Petrus" the extremely expensive wine from Pomerol in Bordeaux, France. The stem is then combined with "orgasm" from the French "orgasme," from Greek "orgasmos" "excitement, swelling," from "organ" "be in heat, become ripe for," literally "to swell, be excited," related to orge "impulse, excitement, anger" (www.etymonline.com).
