Product description

Review

"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

The Vagina Bible - Dr. Jen Gunter's savvy, detailed, funny and wise guide to female health - should be required reading for every woman seeking smart information about her body. I don't say this often but it's a don't miss book.
--Deborah Blum,
New York Times bestselling author of The Poison Squad

Men who want to understand the experiences of their partners or provide sound guidance to their daughters should turn to The Vagina Bible. Jen Gunter offers authoritative information with her trademark clarity and good humor.
--
Carl Zimmer, author ofShe Has Her Mother's Laugh

"This book is basically everything you've ever wanted to know about the vagina but were afraid to ask."
--Imani Gandy, Senior Legal Analyst, Rewire News

In a time where pseudoscience has a large foothold, it is vital that physicians and scientists meet any reader where they live. WithThe Vagina Bible, Dr. Gunter has done exactly that! Her writing is rooted in science and steeped with humor and insight while the book is both inclusive and instructive. A vital book that will undoubtedly have an profound impact.
--Mark Shapiro, MD, Founder and Host, Explore The Space podcast

"Whether she is debunking the damage done by Freud or providing the low down on the science of sex, she provides a frank, funny and thoroughly science-informed perspective. This is the exact kind of book the world needs right now. Gunter pulls no punches and provides a clear and concise summation of the facts on every vagina-related topic you can think of. Seriously. Everything. The world needs more Jen!"
--Professor Timothy Caulfield, author of
Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything....

"Empowerment of women through accurate information about their own bodies is the "vagenda" of ob-gyn and New York Times columnist Gunter's comprehensive, pseudoscience-bashing discussion of all things vaginal and vulvar. Gunter approachably, respectfully, and even playfully presents a huge amount of reproductive and sexual health education information to women, with the assurance that they can use it.."

Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

"As an OB-GYN with nearly three decades of experience, Gunter knows from crotches. ...Shaky assertions made by natural health products serve only to misdirect women, Gunter argues in her new book, The Vagina Bible: The Vulva and the Vagina - Separating the Myth From the Medicine, a sassy manual of anatomical and self-care tips...As the global wellness industry tops $4.2 trillion, Gunter is on a mission to arm women with science-based advice in hopes of stanching the spread of health misinformation. Increasingly, she's been sounding the alarm about how confusion surrounding women's bodies fuels larger efforts to control them."
--Mother Jones

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book!
By Amazon Customer on August 29, 2019
I’m so happy with this book. There’s so much to learn about history, anatomy, and social issues. Lots of funny lines and Dr Gunter explains terms well enough that you don’t need a medical background to understand. I recommend for anyone with a vagina or who fraternises with one.
