and explore just how our "sexual machinery" - whose extraordinary
complexity most of us are unaware of - actually works.
Nina Brochmann and Ellen Stocken Dahl's remarkably welldocumented
book offering a new vision of female genitals, described
with cheerful complicity.

sexual organs and their private mechanisms, before it gets into how
that fine machinery works, alone or "à deux".
If you can't contain your curiosity, somewhere between dinner and
love-making, make a date with the pages of this book. Feast on
descriptions of our attributes and frolic between the sheets of our
own sexuality. And since the subject is one we like to joke about, you
