I found this book on the shelf of my favorite coffeehouse's women's studies section. Coffee and used books just go together. What initially caught my attention was the wordplay, and then the subject matter. Being an easy read, I plowed through this book in no time. And why should a book on anatomy and sexuality not be easy to understand? "Easy to read" does not mean "inferior information". It's something we all live with, and it is something we should all understand!

My favorite review of this book included the following (paraphrased): "All throughout school, we would go over every curve and wrinkle of the penis, but we never even heard of the clitoris..." This reviewer made me wonder, "How would men feel if they did not know where or what their penis was?" Many women are dissatisfied and unhappy with their sex lives because they don't understand their own anatomy. Some of the information in this book may make people uncomfortable or feel awkward, but it's definitely worth a look. I give it 5 stars for speaking to the reader instead of trying to talk over their head.

Seeing as I managed to read the whole book in one sitting, I set it back on the shelf for someone else to discover.

EVERYONE should read this book at least once. Anyone interested in having sex with a woman, or women who think they know their bodies pretty damn well, should read this book at least twice. Fascinating from cover to cover, and even the most knowledgeable expert will learn a thing or two after reading this. :)

On my beloved list because sometimes I think I'm the only one who owns/uses a cervical cap for birth control. The late Cindy Waldron gave this to me when I worked at Planned Parenthood in the 90s. She was the best women's health practitioner I've ever known.
