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 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.

Dr. Jen Gunter is an obstetrician and gynecologist with nearly three decades of experience as a vulvar and vaginal diseases expert. Soon to be profiled as an ELLE Magazine Woman to Watch, she has been called Twitter’s resident gynecologist, the Internet’s OB/GYN, and a fierce advocate for women’s health. She writes two regular columns for The New York Times, called “The Cycle” (monthly) and “You Asked” (weekly), and has written for a broad range of outlets, from academic publications to The New Republic, Chatelaine, Self, The Cut, and many more.
