The first detailed anatomical description of the internal clitoris was published in 1998. But in 1671, there was one author who was determined to tell the world that the clitoris had two spongy bulbs in addition to the glans, which became erect during sexual arousal.

Meet Jane Sharp. We can’t show you a picture of her because very little is known about her life, aside from the fact she was an experienced midwife who published a textbook. This is its cover.
