In spite of having been around for really quite a while, vaginas seem to be enjoying something of a moment. We’re excited about two conversation-changing books, The Vagina Bible, by long-time healthy favourite (the very straight-talking US ob-gyn) Dr Jen Gunter, and Period by BBC journalist Emma Barnett – both available to pre-order now, out late summer.Yes, we know that strictly speaking we’re talking vulvas – but we’ve gone for the most widely used terminology here. And grammatically correct or not, that’s vagina. So welcome to our first vagina issue. Even the fact that we’ve been able to use the word vagina, rather than some coy nickname, shows how far women have come in terms of demanding knowledge about, and power over, our own bodies.

About Healthy Magazine

Welcome to the September issue of healthy! Our intimate health issue is here! The September edition of healthy seeks to end embarrassment around the topic of ‘down-there’ care and give the answers to the questions you won’t find anywhere else. From updates on endometriosis, to an empowering take on orgasms, we hope that this issue will help you to understand your body better. We’ve got a debate on whether or not watching porn can be healthy, advice on the best choice of contraception for you and tips on how you can balance your vaginal microbiome. Don’t worry – there’s no vaginal steaming and not a jade egg in sight! And that’s not all. In addition to our regular features and expert-led content, we’ve also investigated the health impact of microplastics, written about why we’re loving church hall fitness classes and shared some nutritious breakfast recipes for you to try. Plus, we’ve chatted to inspirational women who are paving the way for eco-friendly beauty. Find all this and more in the new issue of healthy.
