Tip of the Iceberg is a well illustrated and beautifully put together book all about the Clitoris. Tip of the Iceberg uncovers the truth about the clitoris: what you know of this exceptional organ may only be the "tip of the iceberg," as a majority of its mass lies beneath the surface. Learn all of the parts and functions through informed descriptions and illustrations of the g-spot, kegel exercises, the stages of sexual response, the visible and hidden parts of the clitoris, and more.
