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.

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Dr. Jen Gunter is an obstetrician and gynecologist with nearly three decades of experience as a vulvar and vaginal diseases expert. She graduated from The University of Manitoba School of Medicine in 1990 at the age of 23. She’s 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.

Host Jen Zoratti is a columnist for the Winnipeg Free Press, where she frequently writes about pop culture, gender, and the arts. She is the co-host of the weekly Free Press podcast Bury the Lede, and the co-founder of the blog SCREAMING IN ALL CAPS: another feminist response to pop culture.
