Product Description

Review

"A wise and sympathetic view from a knowledgable male professional who has really been listening to women. Drenth's book is full of intriguing anecdotes both personal and historical."
(Rachel Maines, author of The Technology of the Orgasm: Hysteria, the Vibrator an 2004-11-01)

"Entertaining and illuminating."
(Lucy Ellmann The Glasgow Herald 2005-02-01)

"An engrossing read: amusing, frightening, and informative in turns. Drenth has provided an excellent basic resource for thinking about women's genitalia as more than flesh and function."

(Virginia Braun BMJ Journals 2005-04-23)

"A highly satisfactory collection . . . fascinating accounts of the physiology of vaginal response, thoughtful readings of literature, films, and works of art, and a surprising range of trivia. The erudite book displays a brisk and slightly demented sense of humor."
(Jenny Davidson Village Voice 2005-05-03)

"Straddling the genres of popular science, literary criticism, how-to, and cultural studies, this 289-page tome is packed with fascinating facts and provocative analysis, all delivered in a quirky, thoughtful voice."– Bitch (Feminist Response to Pop Culture)
