The Happy Vagina: An Empowering Guide to Understanding Your Body (Hardcover)
Not on our shelves, but available to order.
In a world where the vagina is still, too frequently, considered taboo, this book aims to entertain, educate and enlighten. Mika Simmons, creator and host of The Happy Vagina podcast, rightly believes that this taboo is problematic and can lead to a whole host of health issues. Intimate health and pleasure can be hard to talk about, regardless of background or experience, The Happy Vagina is here to smash this stigma for women, and men.
Medicine, politics, religion, and social conditioning have all had a thoroughly improper and exaggerated influence on women’s being – with many of the falsehoods told still negatively impacting us. Mika’s intention is to re-educate us all by shining a light on these ridiculous, historical myths and then debunk them by sharing the most unique, incredible, and empowering facts about the vagina, thereby encouraging a more open dialogue for everyone.
Covering everything from the myth of the wandering womb to mindful masturbation and orgasms to period poverty, the history of contraception, pregnancy and being childfree, Mika’s approachable and positive message urges all of us to know, and appreciate, our own bodies.
