Learn the truth about the clitoris' inner life, the menstrual hormone dance and whether the vaginal orgasm really exists. The book helps you understand how different types of contraception work in the body, what a "normal" vulva looks like and how wearing socks can change your sex life.
Medical students and sex educators Nina Brochmann and Ellen Støkken Dahl draw on their medical expertise to bring vagina enlightenment to the world. Their no-nonsense approach, written with great humour, makes this a must-read for women (and men!) of all ages.
Say goodbye to the myths and misconceptions surrounding female anatomy, this is a timely and empowering book that will inspire women to make informed choices about their sexual health.

PrefaceYou might have thought you knew your own genitals? Think again!


Dr Nina Brochmann (a qualified doctor) and Ellen Støkken Dahl (a final-year medical student) are based in Oslo, Norway. For several years they worked as educators in sexual health, advising teenagers, sex workers and refugees. In 2015, they started the blog Underlivet (The Genital Area), which fast became one of Norway's most popular health blogs. Seeing the obvious demand for more information about the female body and frustrated by the amount of medical misconceptions and shame that surrounds female sexuality, they wrote The Wonder Down Under. This book has taken the world by storm and is currently being translated into more than 30 languages. Together Nina and Ellen's mission is to empower women throughout the world through good sexual education.
