The Button (Missing collection)

Written by Wednesday Martin
Category: · History

Press here for pleasure. Only Wednesday Martin, New York Times bestselling author of Primates of Park Avenue, could combine anthropology, anecdote, and adventure to hilariously right an anatomic wrong.

For millennia, the woman’s most sensitive part has been maligned, misrepresented, and cut out entirely from medical texts, our culture, and our general understanding of female sexuality. Not anymore. Join Martin in the “cliteracy” movement—a stimulating quest from ancient Greece to medieval Europe to the Costa Rican rain forest to rediscover the significance, the symbolic power, the cultural history, the intimidation, the scandal, the vast terrain, and the pleasure of “the button.”

Wednesday Martin’s The Button is part of Missing, a collection of six true stories about finding, restoring, or accepting the losses that define our lives—from the mysterious to the inspiring. Each story can be read—or listened to—in a single sitting.
