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. Urinary tract 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.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit the Alliance for Period Supplies and help provide menstrual products to people in need.

"A funny, relatable, raw, and honest memoir about one woman's sexuality across the ages and stages of her life. Every woman will find something within the pages to relate to. You won't be able to put this book down."

-Laurie Mintz, Ph.D., author of A Tired Woman's Guide to Passionate Sex & Becoming Cliterate

This is a must read! It's like finding someone's diary, and being allowed to read it. Relatable is an understatement! Karin integrates humor into the most mortifying moments (that are all beyond relatable). I found myself laughing out loud when her vagina ("V" in the memoir) showed herself as a character. Grab a glass of wine, get into bed, and read this. Thank me later.

-Nina, Real Talk with Nina

"In recounting many of her life's firsts -- period, sexual experience, miscarriage, baby - Karin's collection of stories shows that the relationship we have with our vaginas is both universal and uniquely personal. It's refreshing to hear conversations that normalize what too many of us keep private. We look forward to her next chapter as an advocate to end period poverty in the U.S. It's time to talk!"

-Jennifer Gaines, Alliance for Period Supplies
