My Rating: ★★★★★

My Review: Brilliant!! I am consistently surprised by what I don’t know about my down there! Every time I read a book about it I learn something new. I love this one not only for what it thought me but for the approachable language used, inclusivity and its acceptant attitude towards every little wonderful and cringey thing that happens down there. A must read for everyone with or without a vulva.
