For clarification, I am refering to nerves and vasculature in the clitoris, not just leading up to it. My goal is to leverage social media support (so please clap and share) in order to get this anatomy added to OB/GYN textbooks and board exams, as direct appeals have not worked…
Even adult, trained scientists aren’t objective. Science is incredibly biased by culture and changes with culture.
Anatomy is the perfect example, as it’s one of the most simple, hard, objective sciences there is. Theoretically, it’s extremely difficult to mess up. And yet really smart people go to dissect an entire…
Detailed anatomy of the penis, including nerves and vessels, is described. Detailed anatomy of the clitoris is omitted.

Risks to sexual function not discussed, surgical anatomy omitted, function of labia minora unacknowledged, use of “rejuvenate” is medical fraud, claims of causes of hypertrophy also unsupported, fraudulent.
Medscape claims labiaplasty is a procedure that “rejuvenates” the female genitalia. Yet there is no evidence of any positive correlation between age and labia minora size after puberty. Meanwhile, labia minoa are well known to shrink with menopause. Claims that labiaplasty is “rejuvenating” are fraudulent and misleading.
Anatomic detail for the clitoris, including nerves and vessels, is omitted.
This is a top 10 anatomy textbook for medical students according to this list.
