1,238 words describe male external genitalia. 538 words describe female external genitalia.

527 describe the penis. 85 words describe the clitoris.

7 figures illustrate male external genital anatomy. 2 figures illustrate female external genital anatomy.

Detailed anatomy of the penis, including nerves and vessels, is described. Detailed anatomy of the clitoris is omitted.

The only clinical remark about the clitoris is it may be too large.

Erection and ejaculation are described for men (additionally in sections on internal male genitalia). No mention of the role of the clitoris or other external female genitals in female orgasm or sexual response beyond arousal is made.
