The Clitoral Truth: The Secret World at Your Fingertipsby Rebecca Chalker
Synopses & Reviews
The clitoris has been dismissed, undervalued, unexplored, and misunderstood for hundreds of years, but the truth is out there, and internationally celebrated sex educator Rebecca Chalker has found it. In The Clitoral Truth, Chalker offers the only mainstream, in-depth exploration devoted solely to women's genital anatomy and sexual response. Women readers everywhere--be they straight, gay, or bisexual--will learn about the countless sexual sensations and discover how to enhance their sexual responses in a more concrete way than ever before. Enhanced with personal accounts, comprehensive illustrations, and a thorough appendix of female sexuality resources, this book helps women and their partners understand and expand their sexual potential and work toward becoming independent sexual beings.

Sashaying boldly where others fear to tread, this manifesto on women's genital anatomy and sexual response includes discussions of the entrenched male-centered model of sexuality, an attempt to show women how to redefine their sexuality to emphasize full body pleasure, and advice on how to acquire a stronger sense of being independent sexual beings. Anatomical illustrations and caricatures by San Francisco artist Fish.
