Breaking news for the female anatomy! In New Zealand, it was deemed safe to use the words “vagina” and “discharge” in TV commercials. An advertisement for Carefree Acti-Fresh Panty Liners, which aired in July, was the first to drop the V-bomb on the country. Naturally, the Advertising Standards Authority received many complaints from “disgusted” viewers.
K Spice said, “I have a nine year old who is up until 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and he definitely does not need to hear words like that.” God forbid he should know the anatomically correct name for a body part! Another outraged viewer complained that pairing of a naked woman (no genitals showing) and the word vagina was “overly sexual.” Gasp! Keep reading »
18 Again: it’s not a sequel to the Zac Efron romantic comedy “17 Again.” It’s a vaginal tightening gel and lubricant available in India. In this commercial set in a family’s home, a woman dances with her lover to a song that sounds likes Madonna’s “Like A Virgin” while hinting at him that she is — wink wink nudge nudge — “18 again” down there.

This morning, as the dull ache of cramps woke me from my slumber, I realized something kind of momentous. I have had my period for exactly 20 years. I mean, almost exactly, because I don’t know the exact date or time that my Aunt Flow first came to visit, but I do know it was at the beginning of the school year, before I turned 13. I turn 33 in November, so, yep, that makes for 20 bloody years. That’s a lot of tampons. Over the years, I’ve learned a few things about myself specifically in relation to tampons and their usage. Let me share them with you. Keep reading »
The moment in a child’s life when he or she learns about genitalia is a precious one, second only to the moment when they realize everybody poops. I know it is weird, but I can still remember when I learned that my older brother had a penis and I didn’t. This little girl Bailey just found out that Daddy has a penis and Mommy doesn’t. She’s still a bit confused about Grandma, however. At least Bailey is learning the real words and not “wee wee” and “hoo hoo,” which drive me crazy. [HyperVocal]
Say what you will about those socialist Frogs and their death panels for Grandma, but France’s socialized medicine has done right by Julie Delpy’s vagina. While promoting her new movie “Two Days In New York” last night, Delpy told Craig Ferguson everything he could have possibly wanted to know about the state of her hotpocket post-baby. French moms are taught exercises for the muscles of the vagina — I’m assuming Kegels, right? — to help tighten her ladybusiness after giving birth. It “rejuvenates” her vagina so she and her partner will be back to enjoying sex the way it felt before childbirth. Sure beats throwing in the towel and pulling on a pair of mom jeans.
An open letter to the Michigan state reps who are offended by the word. Read More »
Vagina was big on Twitter last night, following the news that two Michigan state representatives (Barb Byrum and Lisa Brown) were barred from speaking on the floor of the State house after the dared use the word “vagina.” In response, the Twitter hashtag #VaginaMovieLines started trending, with everyone from yours truly to Martha Plimpton chiming in with their favorite movie lines adapted to include the word vagina. Sometimes, for shits and giggles, we do dramatic readings in the office (of celebrity gossip headlines or especially mean comments on posts) and we decided to film ourselves dramatically performing a bunch of vagina movie lines for your amusement. Watch above and then share your own lines with @TheFrisky on Twitter, using the hashtag #vaginamovielines.
Vagina you. No, seriously, VAGINA. YOU. You’re so scared of the vagina word that you barred Rep. Lisa Brown from speaking after she used it when addressing her opposition to Michigan’s recent string of extreme abortion bills. “Finally, Mr. Speaker,” Brown said, “I’m flattered that you’re all so interested in my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.’” So you vaginas can regulate and legislate and tell women what to do with their vagina vaginas, but you find using the vagina word too “offensive” to actually say? One of you vaginas actually said , “It was so offensive, I don’t even want to say it in front of women,” one state representative said. “I would not say that in mixed company.” Keep reading »
I always laughed when, in middle school, my friends worried about getting tampons stuck inside of them. I was the first to brush off any fear that anything could actually get stuck inside your vagina. I mean, how could you not know if something is up in there? However, I have been converted – a vagina can be a cavernous hiding spot for all sorts of paraphernalia. Somehow, unbeknownst to me, I once got a condom lost inside my vagina for days. Yes, days.

This Givenchy jacket totally looks a vagina (well, to be more specific, it looks like labia). It also costs $4,145, which seems like an exorbitant price for a vagina jacket, Givenchy or not, but there are actually a few situations that could justify the expense. Here are five of them… Keep reading »
G-spot, in my open letter to you, I warned that if you decided to pop up, you’d better be staying for good. And here you go showing up again, trying to steal all of the attention as always, without making any real commitment to hang around.
Some dude researcher, Dr. Adam Ostrzenski, claims to have conclusively discovered your whereabouts. He dissected an 83-year-old dead lady and found what is described as a “blue, grape-like structure buried deep in the front wall of the vagina.”
That sounds … appealing. Keep reading »
