Raising the Skirt: the Unsung Power of the Vagina will be launched in the UK on 20 February 2020.

I am so excited, proud and happy to see a new edition of my book available in the UK once more. It’s just over 20 years since I had the idea to write a book celebrating the vagina and offering a different perspective of female genitalia.

Back then my book was called The Story of V – I had wanted to call it Vagina but I was too ahead of my time; the publishers vetoed my title as being much too shocking…

This time round I finally get to have the word vagina in the title and I have the most amazing vulval art on the front cover, courtesy of the incredible Iwona Demko.

Iwona describes my book as her ‘bible’ and the inspiration for her series of vaginal artwork which you can see here on my website, and at Iwona’s at

This new edition, complete with updated text and introduction is called Raising the Skirt: the unsung power of the vagina; you can pre-order a copy here Watch out for a blog coming soon on why I chose Raising the Skirt as the title.

It’s been a very exciting year for my book: earlier this year a new edition, Wagina, was launched in Poland and I had the great pleasure of talking all things vagina at the Big Book Festival in Warsaw.

I’m looking forward to talking more about Raising the Skirt, vaginas, clitorises and more in the coming year, so get in touch if you want me to take part in an event you’re planning.
