Ellen Støkken Dahl, interviewed by Michelle Marzullo

The female body has been a political battleground for centuries, the source of life itself and thus the focus of control, indeed obsession. Meanwhile, the actual bodies themselves—the way they work, their own intrinsic beauty and physical essence—remain largely undiscussed. To demystify female sexual health for women and those who love them, medical student Ellen Støkken Dahl and Dr. Nina Brochmann from Norway began a blog that was so popular that it quickly became a book. “The Wonder Down Under: A User’s Guide to the Vagina” sold out in Norway in only three days and has now been translated into more than 30 languages. In a special presentation, Dahl will answer all of the questions you didn’t know you had about the female anatomy.
