Publisher's Summary

Number One National Best Seller

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 21st 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 25 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.     

For: 

  • The 16-year-old trying to figure out tampons
  • The 26-year-old wondering how to avoid a UTI
  • The 36-year-old trans woman navigating her new anatomy
  • The 46-year-old worried about the changing appearance of her vulva
  • The 56-year-old looking into the HPV vaccine for her daughter (and maybe herself)
  • The 66-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.

What the critics say

“In a time where pseudoscience has a large foothold, it is vital that physicians and scientists meet any reader where they live. With The 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 a profound impact.” (Mark Shapiro, MD, Founder and Host, Explore The Space podcast)

“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 of She Has Her Mother’s Laugh: The Powers, Perversions, and Potential of Heredity

The Vagina Bible is an extremely important book, not only for all women but also all men. So many women have suffered shame and discomfort due to a complete lack of knowledge about how their sexual organs are designed to look, feel and behave. In her book, Dr. Gunter shines a much needed light on this very private subject aimed at bringing facts, confidence and joy into the personal lives of readers.” (Miranda Esmonde-White, author of Aging Backwards

Not just for women

As a man, reading this book gave me much more insight into what it’s like to be a woman, and would highly recommend reading it.

A Must Listen

Jen Gunter does a wonderful job narrating her own book here. This is as informative as it is engaging. I can’t believe how much BS I passively accepted as fact about vaginas and women’s health. So glad I gave this a listen.

Extraordinarily informative!

Dr. Gunter narrates an excellent and exhaustively thorough compendium of everything scientists know about the vagina. As a man, it was honestly probably more information than I strictly needed, but Dr. Gunter kept things entertaining enough to keep me engaged!

Share the vagenda

Dr. Jen's vagina bible has changed my views on my own health and helped me accept my normal. Witty and informative, I had no idea how much misinformation was out there, and how much of it I had believed was factual.

Great book that is informative on women’s health

I really liked how easy it was to follow and informative it is on women’s vaginal health. Takes a more medical approach but addresses some alternative therapy. Overall well rounded book
