The Vagina Book is an essential guide packed with invaluable information about sexual health that everybody should know, but might be too afraid to ask.

With sections on anatomy, periods, hormones, sex, contraception, fertility, hair care, and so much more, this fun-to-read guide helps readers make healthy decisions for their bodies.

Compelling personal essays from a diverse group of luminary figures—including Margaret Cho, Roxane Gay, and Blair Imani—are sprinkled throughout, enriching the pages with beauty, strength, and honesty.

Praise For…


"Thinx rules. I love this brand. They transform the uncomfortable into the comfortable in both their product line and in the collective conversation. So often, we shy away from solution building because the problem itself makes people blush. Thinx says F that. They are normalizing the normal and I'm all in." - Kristen Bell, star of NBC's The Good Place

"This book is essential for all people. People with periods and people who know people who get periods. It's rare to find trustworthy resources that actually reflect the full reality of the world we live in. Thinx has delivered a valuable tool for education and conversation about periods, sexual literacy, and much more. I can't recommend this book enough!" - Sally Kohn, author of The Opposite of Hate: A Field Guide to Repairing Our Humanity
