"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 and Women's Sexual Satisfaction 2004-11-01)
"Entertaining and illuminating."
(Lucy Ellmann The Glasgow Herald
"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
"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
"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)
