About The Vagina Bible
From Canadian OB/GYN, women's health advocate and New York Times columnist Dr. Jen Gunter comes The Vagina Bible: The vulva and the vagina – separating the myth from the medicine. , This comprehensive, accessible antidote to the maelstrom of misinformation around female sexual health is the ultimate guide to everything a person needs to know about the vagina and vulva.
This book is for:
- The 16-year-old trying to figure out tampons
- The 26-year-old wondering how to avoid a UTI
- The 36-year-old trans woman navigating her new anatomy
- The 46-year-old worried about the changing appearance of her vulva
- The 56-year-old looking into the HPV vaccine for her daughter (and maybe herself)
- The 66-year-old experiencing painful sex
We are well into the 21st century and have access to more information than ever before, yet many people don't know that a vagina is self-cleaning, condoms should be used with a lubricant, eating sugar doesn't cause a yeast infection, and sex shouldn't be painful. As a physician with 25 years of clinical experience, Dr. Jen Gunter is all too familiar with the fears, fallacies and misinformation that abound about vaginal health.
On Twitter, she hilariously exposes unscientific wellness advice and debunks potentially harmful and stunningly unnecessary products from "vagina profiteers." Dr. Gunter knows the questions women (and men) have about female sexual health, and in The Vagina Bible, she answers them all.
"Dr. Jen Gunter is a fountain of critically important information and she's funny as hell. Buy this book if you have a vagina or if you spend any time at all in reasonably close proximity to one." ─Ayelet Waldman, New York Times bestselling author of A Really Good Day
