Publisher's Summary

A candid and hilarious conversation about what happens when sex doesn't feel like it's working.

This book is one woman's funny, moving and sometimes awkward quest to fix her sex life, but it's the story of millions of women everywhere - half of all women have felt pain during sex.

During award-winning writer and performer Fran Bushe's journey towards building a better relationship with her genitals, doctors advised her to have a glass of wine to loosen up and male friends suggested she simply hadn't 'tried' the right penis yet. Unsurprisingly, neither worked.

After a visit to Sex Camp and many attempts to fix her 'broken' vagina, Fran decided to share her own hilarious, excruciating and sometimes upsetting experiences. With the help of her 16-year-old self's diary, expert advice, candid and enlightening interviews with others about sex and some self-care exercises, Fran sets about trying to make herself and other people, feel like they're not being gaslit by their own vaginas. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

GET THE AUDIOBOOK

This is the perfect book for anyone with a vulva. If you have a vagina and a vulva, I guarantee you will relate to this book. I’m so glad this book exists in the world as it has the potential to be life changing for any woman who can label all the parts of a penis but not her own vulva which, as Fran Bushe points out, is regrettably the majority of women. While the book itself is fantastic, it would be a shame to not get the audiobook as Fran Bushe is absolutely hilarious and adds so much to the book just with her narration.

Relatable, funny, honest - for any gender

Marvellous. Relatable, funny, honest - for any gender.

A history of one woman's private parts, what they've done, WHO they've done (pardon me), and even their psychology. Or rather, their owner's.

This really does show up the differences in our health services for men and women: preconceptions, stereotypes, an unwillingness to see issues, turning a blind eye - through Fran's lifelong struggle with her sexual problems. Are they in her head? Her body? Are they real?

Going through her sexual history, partners, mistakes and graphic (don't squirm - if you don't like it, I'm not sure this book is for you, though it SHOULD be) relationship and sex problems, readers are going to laugh. They may feel uncomfortable - seeing Fran come to terms with abusive relationships she put herself through, it's one that most readers might feel empathy for. And they - we - are very likely to learn something.

One story tells more than just that. It shows what our relationship with our body can be, it can show how hard it can be to find help, the right kind of help. It can remind us that we are all various kinds of 'normal' and that we shouldn't feel ashamed of being who and what we are. And it also shows us that Sex Camp is all kinds of hilarious and eye-opening.

I laughed a lot listening to this. I highly recommend the Audible version, as Fran narrates this herself, and as a experienced stand-up comic for whom these insights have provided material, you're in safe hands navigating her journey with the lady herself. I believe I missed out on some illustrations, but as the narrator tells us, these are helpfully provided as a download anyway. Definitely listen to Fran.

We all have sexual hang-ups of one sort or another, at one time or another. You know you do. Or did. Or will. Normalising these experiences can only ever be a good thing.

Loved this, and I expect you will too.

With thanks to Nudge Books for providing a sample Audible copy.

This needs to be a part of sex education!

Dear Fran,
I love you. Thank you for helping my path to developing a healthier and more compassionate relationship with myself, and more importantly my sexual self. This book is my new bible.
