Synposis:

The sexy, the funny, the humiliating, the gross, and a whole lot more!

Karin Freeland: a wife, mother of two, and business professional turned life coach. Why would she ever decide to write The Ins and Outs of My Vagina: A Penetrating Memoir? As she explains, her story is "about growing up and floundering through puberty, learning to experiment sexually, accepting your body, finding love and creating life, and trying your damnedest to have an orgasm before you reach fifty."

Pubic hair. Ovarian cysts. Yeast infections. First period. Roast beef lips. Strange secretions. Burning genitalia. Frat-boy fiascoes. Brazilian wax. Torn labia. The Big O.

For Karin, lady parts are a total mystery, and she doesn't understand why no one ever talks about them or explains the real pleasures and pitfalls of a woman's journey. To get her through her trials and tribulations, she forms a fragile relationship with V, her vagina, who may or may not have her best interests at heart.

When I saw this tour posted, I jumped at the chance to read it based on the title alone. Then I read the synposis and knew this book was for me. Being similiar in age, this book resonanted with me. Told from the perspective of someone with a vagina, this book shares everything about it. The good, the bad, and things we many not have realized. This is an amazing organ and should be celebrated not shamed. Afterall, without it, where would babies come from?

As someone who has dealt with ovarian cysts since I was a teenager, I found this part to be real and emotional. I've also struggled with infertility but since we don't talk about it, no one knows that's why I don't have children. It's not that I didn't want them, I couldn't. By 45, I lost both ovaries to endometriosis and am now dealing with medically induced menopause. I appreciated her openness and honesty which helped me understand that while this was a really lonely period of my life, I wasn't alone. Other women go through similar things and this should be normalized so we can lean on one another. 

The book is well written and you will find yourself speeding through the pages. I found myself laughing to the point of crying at many points so you may  not want to read this in public.   

I highly recommend this book to any woman who wants to better understand her vagina and all of its amazingness. 

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Karin Freeland and Kate Rock Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.
