Pussypedia: What Every Woman Needs To Know About Her Genitals
The female genitals, aka the pussy, are largely invisible in historical, sexual and medical contexts. For a long time the sexual urge was believed to exist purely to ensure human reproduction, and women were generally considered incapable of feeling sexual desire on their own. Rather, it was the man’s job to arouse the woman’s desire. This evidently still applies to some extent today, since men are still brought up to play the active role and women the passive one. What we have learned about female sex largely relates to reproductive functions: menstruation, fertility and childbearing.
This booklet, created with our Swedish member RFSU, is intended to provide knowledge about the female body, focusing on the pussy and its sexual functions. The text discusses anatomy, gynecology and, last but not least, sexual desire. The female genitals contain a wealth of sensitive spots, nooks and crannies, and areas that offer unimagined possibilities for women to enjoy their sexuality.
Hopefully, this booklet will encourage women to explore their body and its unique sexual capabilities for their own pleasure. The descriptions of the pussy are necessarily generalized and therefore omit to mention much of the enormous variation that is found from one woman to the next.
You will find a glossary of terms and a list of further reading and useful websites at the back of the booklet.
