The Day My Vagina Broke follows one woman's journey to becoming a mumma and how she had no idea childbirth could break your vagina...and you. Once you're pregnant, the rest is easy, right? No. Knowing parenting wouldn't be easy, Stephanie Thompson never thought too much about how the baby would actually arrive and how that was, in fact, the hardest part of the journey so far. Many women feel foolish for not knowing what they didn't know. They found out the hard way. The Day My Vagina Broke is about breaking the silence on the secret women's code around childbirth and empowering mums-to-be at their most vulnerable time. After going through her own tough childbirth experience, Stephanie wants other mothers to be informed about all birthing methods and be empowered to decide which method is best for their individual needs, not what they hear or read as being the "best". This audiobook builds a sisterhood of support by taking away the pressure and judgement so many women place on themselves and others. While this is a tough subject, The Day My Vagina Broke also provides hope for those who have been through a difficult birth and shows that you can still enjoy that wonderful moment you meet your baby for the first time. 1.

Will there be light at the end of the birth canal? Does the word endometriosis make you want to stick a fork in your eye? No? Then perhaps this book isn't for you. It's funny, and (sometimes alarmingly) frank. It contains an impressive array of synonyms for vagina and it's certainly NSFW. It's about having a devil womb and a hot knife lodged in a shoulder. It's about becoming blackly bitter and twisted in infertility, and then slowly finding a way to untwist. It's part memoir, part dark comedy, wrapped up loosely as a journal full of TMI and quirk. Let me put it this way: If Helen Fielding and Marian Keyes were to go through IVF, and use Caitlin Moran as a surrogate, this book would be their baby. The Underachieving Ovary is an honest and satisfying must-hear for anyone battling endometriosis or infertility. Start listening to it today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jennifer Swanepoel.

We've been thinking about sex all wrong. Mainstream media, movies, and porn have taught us that sex = penis + vagina, and everything else is just secondary. Standard penetration is how men most reliably achieve orgasm. The problem is, women don't orgasm this way. We've separated our most reliable route to orgasm - clitoral stimulation - from how we feel we should orgasm - penetration. As a result we've created a pleasure gap between women and men: 50 percent of 18- to 35-year-old women say they have trouble reaching orgasm with a partner 64 percent of women versus 91 percent of men said they had an orgasm at their last sexual encounter 55 percent of men versus 4 percent of women say they usually reach orgasm during first-time hookup sex In Becoming Cliterate, psychology professor and human sexuality expert Dr. Laurie Mintz exposes the broader cultural problem that's perpetuating this gap and what we can do about it. Pulling together evidence from biology, sociology, linguistics, and sex therapy into one comprehensive, accessible, and prescriptive book, Becoming Cliterate features: Cultural and historical analysis of female orgasm (spoiler: the problem's been going on for ages) An anatomy section (it's all custom under the hood) Proven techniques for cliterate sex (it starts with training the sex organ between your ears) A comprehensive final chapter for men (because you don't have to have a clitoris to be cliterate) By dispelling the lies, misunderstandings, and myths that have been holding us back, Becoming Cliterate tackles both personal and political problems and replaces them with updated outlooks and practical skills needed to change our collective perspective on sex. It's time to finally inform women and men on how to have satisfying experiences in bed that benefit 1. Language: English. Narrator: Teri Clark Linden.
