You might expect a book about the vagina to be clinical, boring, or bordering on XXX. That’s not the case with V is for Vagina: You’re A to Z Guide to Periods, Piercings, Pleasures and So Much More. This paperback about the most private part of a woman’s body delivers medically-sound, comprehensive information in a hip, fun, and fascinating format. It’s hugely accessible to women, whether 18 or 88.
Co-authored by OB/GYN Dr. Alyssa Dweck and sex/relationship über author Robin Westen, V is for Vagina sheds light on the most misunderstood part of a woman’s body. From Kegels to cunnilingus, and self-exams to semen allergies, V Is for Vagina delivers the good, the bad, and the time-for-the-pharmacy truths – even about subjects you might be too embarrassed to discuss with your gynecologist. Topics are at times controversial but written about in an easy-to-read, conversational style, making the book the go-to guide for all things vagina.
