The Wonder Down Under

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Find out about the wonder down under in a discussion on the vagina, backed by medical knowledge.

Nina Brochmann and Ellen Støkken Dahl are Oslo-based medical students, educators in sexual health and founders of the blog The Genital Area.

In 2017, Stylist ran a cover on the vagina, Bodyform showed menstrual blood with realistic red liquid instead of infamous blue for the first time in their adverts, and in 2018, prepare for Brochmann and Dahl’s new book, The Wonder Down Under: A User’s Guide to the Vagina.

In this event, they explore everything from female erections (yes, it’s a thing) and tips for better orgasms to information to help decide what contraception works best for you, as well as cultural examinations about the hymen – all supported by solid medical knowledge.

Chaired by Sarah Raphael.
