FIVE DAYS until the release of What's Up Down There? Questions You'd Only Ask Your Gynecologist If She Was Your Best Friend! In anticipation of the big launch day (Sept 28), this week we are pleased to publish exclusive excerpts and blogs by our very own Dr. Lissa Rankin. Today's excerpt is the intro to Chapter 4 - Sex and Masturbation (i.e., the chapter we're all going to read first anyway). So, an OB/GYN must be a total sexpert, right? Read on to find out!
OB/GYN, Sex Goddess
When people find out you’re a gynecologist, they automatically assume you are a sex goddess who’s got it all figured out. What they don’t realize is that, just because we memorized the blood supply to the clitoris and the nerve pathways of the pelvis doesn’t mean we know anything about sex. Sure, we hear stories. Women talk to us and ask questions, so we gather wisdom through experience. But when it comes to our personal lives, most gynecologists I know are just as messed up about sex as everyone else. Why? Because sex has nothing to do with arteries, neurons, or skin folds.
