Don’t Ignore the Clitoris: A Brief History of Hysteria

Allow Us To Explain


The rest of Jess Fink‘s comic treatise on clitoral stimulation for Victorian Ladies can be found below, but it does contain a drawing of some genitals, so that’s probably not work safe. But even if you are at work right now, you should check it out later, because it’s about the silly Victorians, the invention of the vibrator, orgasms, and anatomy.


See the piece at full size, with sources, at Jess Fink’s Deviantart.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
