Woman: An Intimate Geography - Natalie Angier
Looking for a guide to the sociology, psychology and anatomy/physiology of the "female" body?
A new and updated edition of Natalie Angier's best-selling tour of the AFAB female body, published for its fifteen-year anniversary.
With the clarity, insight, and sheer exuberance of language that make her one of The New York Times's premier stylists, Pulitzer Prize-winner Natalie Angier lifts the veil of secrecy from that most enigmatic of evolutionary masterpieces, the female body.
Angier takes readers on a mesmerizing tour of female anatomy and physiology:
- Explores everything from organs to orgasm
- Delves into topics such as exercise, menopause, and the mysterious properties of breast milk
- Challenges widely accepted Darwinian-based gender stereotypes
- Shows how cultural biases have influenced research in evolutionary psychology (the study of the biological bases of behavior) and consequently lead to dubious conclusions about "female nature."
- Offers optimistic alternatives
- Transcends feminist polemics with an enlightened subversiveness that makes for a joyful, fresh vision of womanhood
- A seminal work that will endure as an essential read for anyone interested in how biology affects who we are as human beings
- In our Vaginal Health collection, PASSIONAL Boutique & Sexploratorium hopes to provide essential exercisers, dilators and other tools designed to assist with stretching, strengthening, cleaning, massaging or caring for the soft tissues of the vaginal anatomy in all of its diverse forms.
- Natalie Angier is a Pulitzer-prize winning science columnist for the NYTimes and author of Woman, The Canon and other books.
