Dr. Ashton, you've seen thousands of patients with a variety of issues especially related to sexual problems.

How much do they know about their anatomy? Unfortunately not a lot, I would say that 80 to 90% of women don't know the proper anatomy terms for their own body, they might be able to feel something in the shower when they're cleaning themselves but they might be embarrassed they might never have been taught this information it would be like if you had a problem with your nose and you went to your doctor and said, I'm having a problem with this, it's hard to get help for it if you don't know the terms.

So I wasn't sure if this is right or not so we're going to play a little game here, I'm going to ask a volunteer to come up, any volunteers out there, possibly? Come on up, how are you? Fine. What's your name? Marilyn. Marilyn, how well do you think you know the anatomy? Not that great.
