Much bigger implications

How medical science got female sexuality wrong. An Australian urologist, Dr Helen O’Connell, is forcing a re-write of anatomy books and a rethink among medical professionals.

“They left it out,” she said. “It boils down to rivalry between the sexes: the idea that one sex is sexual and the other reproductive. “The truth is that both are sexual and both are reproductive.”

“The original anatomists weren’t interested in the clitoris. The penis was much more interesting. “It was bigger and you didn’t have to wear your spectacles to see it.”
