PUSSYPEDIA, This Generation’s Version of “Our Bodies, Ourselves”
“PUSSYPEDIA is a hilarious, ridiculously informative and absolutely necessary atlas for people with pussies. From pussy anatomy to sex and masturbation and all things in between, Mendelson takes an inclusive and intersectional approach to demystifying all things pussy. This book is a joyful, frank, and comprehensive corrective to the cultural ignorance surrounding people with pussies. If pussy is the promised land, this book is the compass that will guide you there.”
—Roxane Gay, bestselling author of Bad Feminist and Hunger
Even in the age of the internet, there is a shocking lack of accurate, accessible information about pussies. Much of what is available is wrong, contradictory, or impossible to understand without a medical education, leaving us with more questions than answers.
If the clitoris and penis are the same size on average (yep it’s true), why is the word “small” in the definition of clitoris but missing from the definition of penis? Is squirt juice pee? How hairy are butt cracks generally? Are scented tampons dangerous? Why is labiaplasty on a rapid global rise? Does egg freezing really work?
From the creators of the wildly popular, Webby award-winning website by the same name, PUSSYPEDIA: A Comprehensive Guide (8/3/21; Hachette Go; Hardcover; $28; 9780306924286) offers an obsessive review of peer-reviewed science explained in simple, joyful language to answer all of the questions we have, and many we didn’t know we had yet.
With a forward written by author and sex education pioneer, Heather Corinna, the fully illustrated and gender-and-ability-inclusive PUSSYPEDIA not only gives the reader information but teaches them how to evaluate the quality of information and how to accept what we don’t know rather than search for neat conclusions. It also weaves in personal anecdotes from the authors and their friends––sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and often cringe-worthy––to ward off shame and encourage curiosity, agency, and delight.
Our generation’s Our Bodies, Ourselves with a healthy dose of fun, PUSSYPEDIA makes a great gift for your shy niece, your angsty teenager, your confused boyfriend, or yourself.
