Ellen Støkken Dahl

Medical student Ellen Støkken Dahl is an Oslo-based sex educator who worked for several years advising young people on matters of sexual health. In 2015, with Dr. Nina Brochmann, M.D., she started the blog Underlivet (“The Genitals”), with the aim of dispelling myths around female sexual health. Eventually, the sheer number of questions they received led them to create “The Wonder Down Under.” The book became an instant bestseller in Norway and has now been translated into more than 30 languages and published around the world. Ellen and Nina’s TEDxOslo video The Virginity Fraud has been viewed more than 2 million times.
