Many women still suffer a long-ingrained dissociation with their own vaginas and a misunderstanding of what goes on "down there." With expertise and a dose of humor, leading ob-gyn, educator and women's health advocate Dr. Sherry Ross addresses every urgent, confounding, culturally taboo or embarrassing question women have about vaginas, with the goal of healthier, happier lives for all.

She-ology describes the state of the vagina at every age and stage of a woman's life. From first periods to postpartum to menopause, from the serious to the celebratory to the surprising, this book will make you feel a part of the vagina dialogue.

Dr. Sherry—leading ob-gyn, educator, and advocate in women's heath—is equal parts your best girlfriend, confidant and skilled practitioner with over 25 years' experience in gynecology and obstetrics. With the help of many famous contributors she answers your questions and concerns such as:

• Where the heck is my G-spot?

• Since the vagina is self-cleaning, do I even need soap?

• Can I get HPV if I don't have actual intercourse?

• Is it too late, at 45, to have an orgasm?

• How can I be depressed after giving birth if I've always wanted a baby?

• Is there such a thing as a perfect vagina?

• I enjoy swinging or S & M, does that make me a pervert?

• What does safe sex even mean?

• What could possibly go wrong down there, and what do I do about it?

Dr. Sherry's goal is that of healthier and happier women through a revolution of vagina information. This book will help you form, mend or strengthen your relationship with that most commanding and complex of female organs—the vagina.

***A NEW YORK TIMES BESTELLER***

An essential exploration of why and how women’s sexuality works—based on groundbreaking research and brain science—that will radically transform your sex life into one filled with confidence and joy.

Researchers have spent the last decade trying to develop a “pink pill” for women to function like Viagra does for men. So where is it? Well, for reasons this book makes crystal clear, that pill will never be the answer—but as a result of the research that’s gone into it, scientists in the last few years have learned more about how women’s sexuality works than we ever thought possible, and Come as You Are explains it all.

The first lesson in this essential, transformative book by Dr. Emily Nagoski is that every woman has her own unique sexuality, like a fingerprint, and that women vary more than men in our anatomy, our sexual response mechanisms, and the way our bodies respond to the sexual world. So we never need to judge ourselves based on others’ experiences. Because women vary, and that’s normal.

Second lesson: sex happens in a context. And all the complications of everyday life influence the context surrounding a woman’s arousal, desire, and orgasm.

Cutting-edge research across multiple disciplines tells us that the most important factor for women in creating and sustaining a fulfilling sex life, is not what you do in bed or how you do it, but how you feel about it. Which means that stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in a woman’s sexual wellbeing; they are central to it. Once you understand these factors, and how to influence them, you can create for yourself better sex and more profound pleasure than you ever thought possible.

And Emily Nagoski can prove it.
