From Canadian OB/GYN, women's health advocate and New York Times columnist Dr. Jen Gunter: The Vagina Bible is a comprehensive, accessible antidote to the maelstrom of misinformation around female sexual health, and the ultimate guide to everything a person needs to know about the vagina and vulva.
We are well into the twenty-first 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 twenty-five 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.
the sixteen-year-old trying to figure out tampons; the twenty-six-year-old wondering how to avoid a UTI; the thirty-six-year-old trans woman navigating her new anatomy;the forty-six-year-old worried about the changing appearance of her vulva;the fifty-six-year-old looking into the HPV vaccine for her daughter (and maybe herself);the sixty-six-year-old experiencing painful sex;The Vagina Bible offers a repository of accurate information based on science, and delivered with wit and wisdom. This is the fact-based, inclusive, and empowering guide you deserve to advocate for your own body.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Dr. Jen Gunter is the straight-talking big sister anyone concerned with women’s health would love to have on speed dial. The outspoken ob-gyn has consolidated her encyclopedic knowledge into an essential manual that demystifies the often-misunderstood subject. With her trademark candour—and handy lists and sidebars—Gunter debunks myths (jade eggs: no; waxing: OK) and offers firsthand tips on best practices for vaginal, sexual, and psychological health. And her inclusivity stands out—there’s necessary info for trans folks of all genders as well as cisgender women and their partners. This is a bible that belongs on every bedside table.
Should be required reading
Informative and honest. Easy to read and follow. Plus At 44 I learned things about my body I never knew. All women should read this and share it with their daughters and sisters.
Takes every opportunity to complain about men
Us women get it. The patriarchy sucks and men have made and are still making a lot of stupid sexist decisions. But must you seek entry opportunity to complain about it?
Can't I read about my vagina without constantly being reminded? It's exhausting. 😒😩🤦♀️
