Awarded a 5 Star Readers' Favorite Review

Readers may be daunted by what to expect if they dare to read The Ins and Outs of My Vagina. I must say that author Karin Freeland has real guts to share so much of her intimate life. Without a doubt, more reserved female readers may be positively scandalized by what Freeland airs about her voyage with her vagina in this work of memoir and creative non-fiction. Others will envy her courage and applaud her honesty. Her style is friendly and conversational: you’ll feel like the two of you are close friends having a “girly” conversation over several glasses of wine.

I confess, I didn’t select this book to learn more about a very private part of my anatomy; there are plenty of medical books to consult if I need that information. No. I decided to read The Ins and Outs of My Vagina from sheer curiosity about how and what Karin Freeland would write in a “penetrating memoir” (pun obviously intended) with such a clever and provocative double-entendre title. Was she going to shock or amuse me? I just had to read this memoir! Let me start by saying Freeland’s memoir is unique, not just because of its subject but also because if women were game enough to be as open as Freeland is, we might all be less hung up on the paradox of those blessed curses called vaginas; those incongruous sources of so much pleasure, pain, and confusion.

As Freeland traveled back into her childhood and first real awareness of her vagina, I found myself laughing. Once she entered puberty, I recognized myself in all her questions, fears, and misgivings about her anatomy. And when it came to her desire and eventual struggle to experience that “big O,” I heard the voices of so many of my women friends who have confessed to faking it instead of making it. Guess what, ladies? You are far from alone in getting your vagina to co-operate during sex!

What women are saying...

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., Professor of Human Sexuality at the University of Florida, licensed psychologist, certified sex therapist, and 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, Host of Real Talk with Nina & Certified Sex Coach 
“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

A Book with a Cause

Alliance for Period Supplies Transparent PNG.png

While I share a lot of funny stories about getting my period, that’s not the reality for everyone. For many individuals, a period is a setback. It’s something that dictates what they can and can’t do.

Did you know one in four people struggle to purchase period supplies due to lack of income? This is called period poverty and chances are we each know someone who has experienced this need – a neighbor, a co-worker, a friend.

For many people who menstruate, their period is no joke! It forces them to miss school, work, sports, dates and other fun events. No one should have to miss out on life due to their period and lack of funds to get the products they need.

You can help! For every copy sold of The Ins and Outs of My Vagina: A Penetrating Memoir, I’ll be donating a portion of the proceeds to Alliance for Period Supplies to provide products to individuals in need. Together we can end period poverty once and for all!
