The Frisky Guidebook: The Big Easy

A new saying is showing up all over New Orleans these days – Soul is waterproof. After 10 minutes in this unique city, you’ll see just how true that is.

For those two days (April 11-12), the city will become “The Vagina Capital of the World”, as the Louisiana Superdome gets decked out “with a big vagina entrance.” The Vagina Superdome will be the setting for performance events, parties, parades, workshops, wellness and education programs, speakers, and even spa treatments, which will be free to residents of New Orleans and the Gulf South. Okay, we think all of this is pretty cool, and we get that the hurricane-ravaged city needs some TLC, but we agree with Feministing when they say that all this excessive vagina talk is making the word a lil’ hokey. Whatever, we’d still totally go. [VDay.org via Feministing] Keep reading »
