The Wonder Down Under
Author: Nina Brochmann, Ellen Støkken Dahl
A joyful and indispensable guide filled with astonishing, important, and little-known information about the vagina that will equip a new generation to make informed choices about their sexual health and happiness. The Wonder Down Under is a comprehensive guide to a miraculous and complex part of the body that too few of us (regardless of gender) are all that familiar with--the vagina. With wisdom, humor, and scientific aplomb, medical student Ellen Støkken Dahl and Dr. Nina Brochmann take readers on a fascinating journey of female sexual organs and sexual health--from the clitoris to contraception to cervical cancer. More than a user's manual, this book is the funny, frank tribute to the vagina that we have been waiting for. The Wonder Down Under is filled with astonishing, essential, and little-known information--relayed with both medical expertise and genuine empathy. Did you know, for instance, that female and male sex organs are merely variations on the same basic structure? Or that there's no such thing as a virginity test--because examining the hymen cannot meaningfully indicate whether or not someone's had sex? Brochmann and Dahl have written a tour-de-force about the biology, anatomy, and reality of the female body, examining the many ways in which widespread misinformation and silence about the vagina have been harmful to women over time. The Wonder Down Under makes crucial contributions to the discussion: the book was an instant bestseller that sold out in its native Norway in just three days. Since then it has been acquired by publishers in more than two dozen countries around the world. The Wonder Down Under is a joyful and indispensable book that will educate readers of all kinds and equip a new generation to make informed choices about their sexual well-being.
" "Warning: this book is NOT a new-age self-help softy. Perhaps it's the subject that initially enchanted me. I personally wish I had thought of having a Conversation with MY Womb! Giuditta Tornetta did think of it, and she rendered her trailblazing idea into a book that is at once practical, and a wildly esoteric page-turner. " -Midwife Robin Lim, 2011 CNN Hero, International Alexander Langer Award Recipient. "Conversations with the Womb is a guide back to yourself. It is time for this material to inspire and influence today's woman." -Kelly Brogan MD, Holistic Women's Health. "Conversations with the Womb is a treasure. A perfect way to connect with the profound wisdom we all carry inside." -Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause. Often referred to as the well-spring of creation, the womb is the epicenter of a woman's relationship to the divine. Conversations With the Womb is a provocative rediscovery of ancient feminine power. Using the Nine Chakras of Creation as a road map to transforming one's personal history, women are encouraged to begin a profound and ongoing conversation with their most primal organ. Unburdened by their histories the immense creative force within the womb can be harnessed to manifest our heart's desire."
