An illustrated book that reveals all the facts thoughtfully and frankly.
The vagina: It can be surprising to learn how little many women know about this important part of their anatomy. It is not generally a topic of conversation and, if mentioned at all, its name is cloaked in euphemisms like "down there." This book is for all women -- prepubescent, pubescent and adult -- no matter how much they already know. Supportive male partners also would benefit from reading it.
Accessible and straightforward, this illustrated guide reveals all the functions of the female reproductive system, its various parts, its practical purposes, and its pleasures and problems. The facts are presented in a generous spirit with light humor to help readers learn the facts in private, without embarrassment or discomfort, and to better understand this essential part of female health and well-being.
