Illustrated by Fish

The Clitoral Truth goes beyond all other sexuality self-help guides by providing a surprising “inside” look at women’s genital anatomy, and revealing that what is almost universally thought of as a sensitive pea-sized nubbin is, in reality, a powerful, responsive organ system. The Clitoral Truth reveals every aspect of this multifaceted organ and how the parts work together to produce pleasure and orgasm.

This frank, frisky, user-friendly guide also delves into the controversy over female ejaculation and explores why so few women have discovered their potential to experience multiple orgasms. It also reports on why so many women of all ages fake orgasms, and it settles the controversy over the G-Spot once and for all. Can’t find your G-Spot? Hey, you’ve got something better! Here are vivid personal accounts, a savvy, in-depth survey of female sexuality resources, and the bold and explicit illustrations of San Francisco artist Fish. The Clitoral Truth surveys the numerous ways that women have begun to transform the deeply entrenched male-centered model of sexuality to actively redefine it by emphasizing full-body pleasure. And, likely, better orgasms!
