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. 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. Dr. Gunter knows the questions women (and men) have about female sexual health, and in The Vagina Bible, she answers them all. For: * 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.

“The pharmaceutical industry wants to medicalize the concept of libido. This idea that women should be hot and horny all the time is medically incorrect. We all go through phases where we are more or less interested in sex. “

Highly recommended - Dr. Gunter does an impressive job of making medical non-fiction an enjoyable read. The care in which she refers to reputable studies for her facts (and critiques some studies as not thorough enough) makes the information contained in her book reliable and evidence based.

A MUST read! Consider it your vagina owner's manual.

Lots of very good information

Lots of info, almost encyclopedic. It would be easier to own the book rather than reading straight through. Good all around reference with discussions on timely topics.
