DENVER, Sept. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It's not the easiest thing to talk about, which is why board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory Buford dedicated an entire book to it: the vagina.
"The vagina and female genitals are an incredibly important part of the body, but both women and men still struggle with having frank, open discussions about it—even with their physicians," Dr. Buford states. "When you begin talking about the functions of the vagina, things tend to get even more uncomfortable for people. We want to help change that by giving both women and men a candid look at this often taboo subject." Thus, the Girlfriend's Guide to the Vagina was born.
What you'll find in the Girlfriend's Guide to the Vagina
The Girlfriend's Guide to the Vagina is an e-book filled with fun graphics, insight from experienced physicians, and advice from experts in sexual health. It's conversational, lighthearted, and empowering—but, most of all, it includes medically accurate and modern understandings of the female body and how it works.
"I want to offer people an honest, conversational, and medically sound resource for learning about women's health, anatomy, and sexuality," emphasizes Dr. Buford. "We consulted with experts in women's health, such as sexologist Dr. Jess O'Reilly and OBGYN Dr. Susan Murrmann, to put together the ultimate guide."
The Guide is an educational read for teens all the way to centenarians, and it covers topics in a friendly, sometimes humorous, and always frank way. It explores:
- Anatomy of the vulva, vagina, and reproductive organs.
- Historical misunderstandings about the vagina, birth control, and menstruation.
- How the vagina changes over a lifetime.
- Why and how menstruation occurs—and what is and isn't normal to experience.
- What to expect during pregnancy and childbirth, including how it impacts the vagina and vulva.
- Medical and cosmetic treatment options that are available to help with laxity, dryness, urinary stress incontinence, etc.
- The benefits of a healthy sex life, explanation of why it feels good, tips for orgasming, and how masturbation can improve your health.
"The Guide was a labor of love, and we are all proud of the result," Dr. Buford exclaims. "Our biggest hope is that it becomes a well-loved resource for women wanting to know more about their bodies."
