About this book

This eagerly awaited book offers a unique, comprehensive scientific study of the anatomy of the organ of female sexual pleasure. The authors use macroscopic and microscopic research to guide the reader from the glans, the visible part of the clitoris, where they explore the impressive sensory corpuscles, to the hidden roots of the bulbo-clitoral organ. They show its complexity, its exact location within the external genitalia and its intimate relationship with the urethro-vaginal pyramid.

They also remind us that throughout history there has been a failure to understand this organ and explain that this misunderstanding remains the cause of persistent excisions, criminal mutilating practices that have not yet been eradicated.

Using extensive iconography, they demonstrate throughout this book that the bulbo-clitoral organ is an exceptional natural treasure that every woman possesses and that every man should know well.


“The aim of this book is to provide an extensive knowledge of the ‘exceptional natural treasure that every woman possesses and that every man should know well’. … The text is well documented, concise and easy to read. … This original, attractive, and richly documented book will be of great interest not only to all anatomists, but also to medical students, pelvic visceral surgeons, urologists, gynaecologists, obstetricians, sexologists, plastic surgeons, radiologists, midwifes and nurses.” (Bruno Grignon, Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, May, 2015)
