I also appreciated the women sharing their sexual experiences, we are way to uptight about sex in the US.

The correct language and understanding of female genitalia is so important to me: the vulva is the whole external package, the vagina is a muscular tube which leads from the cervix (the neck of the womb) down to the vulva. I loved that, because interviewing women who have been through the menopause and still have incredible sex lives sends out a beautiful message about womanhood. I know not everybody’s comfortable and excited to show the world their genitals, but looking at her now, she is pretty. My early experiences of womanhood started with the women who raised me: my nan taught me about enjoying yourself, your body and who you are.On one hand she offers simple categorisations of the male and female form and, on the other, visual signposts through the politics of power, shame, identity, sexuality and inequality that inform our sexed experience of the world as women and men. For men who would read this book, one hopes they come away with an understanding of what it is to be a woman. I thought the area of the vagina should look like the ones that I’d seen in porn on the internet, and they looked polar opposite to mine.

My last book, A State of Fear: how the UK government weaponised fear during the Covid-19 pandemic ,was a Sunday Times bestseller. We wrap qualities up in this umbrella of masculine or feminine, like being nurturing is seen as feminine, but those are stereotypes: we all have the capacity for those things within us. It’s like a hot, burning sensation in my uterus that radiates throughout the lower half of my body, into my hips and down into my knees. My life journey has been about finding balance within myself – and that’s where I’m finding my healing.

I don’t beat myself up, but it’s interesting that I still have that split-second thought that it’s not a porn-perfect fanny.

Reviews: “A tender yet taboo-exploding message of women reclaiming their womanhood” - BBC “A simple but groundbreaking idea that gives women back a sense of ownership over their own bodies. I always say that it’s not radical that women have vulvas and vaginas - what is radical is women sharing images of their bodies and describing experiences on their own terms. For half the week I do my own thing: I look after my grandchildren, I belong to a women’s drama group, I see my friends.

I first met Laura, a photographer from Surrey, in 2015 following her exploration of 100 women’s relationships with their breasts. One woman had an orgasm when she gave birth, another talked about the different types of orgasms she can have, which inspired me to think about sensuality differently. Sometimes there are serious reasons, but often women are embarrassed to show their genitals, or they feel embarrassed they might smell. While there, she took a black and white composition course purely for pleasure, and it changed everything. Masculinity is associated with being ‘strong and silent’, yet here is a book of 100 men talking frankly and intimately about their manhood in both senses.Because if you find yourself feeling admiration, pride and inspiration for another person, it becomes easier to apply that to yourself, too. In the end I had emergency surgery that resulted in the loss of my right ovary and fallopian tube and they drained five litres of fluid from the cyst. From smooth Barbie dolls to internet porn, girls and women grow up with a very narrow view of what they should look like, even though in reality there is an enormous range. For the first time, 100 brave and beautiful women reveal their bodies and stories on their own terms, talking about how they feel about pleasure, sex, pain, trauma, birth, motherhood, menstruation, menopause, gender, sexuality and simply being a woman. It was through my involvement with the women’s movement in the 1970s that l found my voice and the strength to confront patriarchy.
