I’ve read a lot of letters asking for advice. Some of them are weird, like the woman who asked Slate’s Dear Prudence if she should date the guy who sniffed her sweaty bicycle seat at the gym. I vote for NO. Some of them are soul-stirring. Check out Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice On Love And Life from Dear Sugar if you haven’t already. I cried my way through it. Sometimes I agree with the advice and sometimes I don’t. That’s to be expected. But I think I stumbled upon what might be the saddest advice exchange ever. A woman whose boyfriend finds her vagina “repulsive” wrote in to the Guardian:
“My boyfriend of three years has never actively looked at my vagina or shown the slightest interest in it other than the usual foreplay. He performs oral sex occasionally but always under the darkness of the duvet and has admitted he doesn’t find vaginas particularly attractive, joking that mine is especially repulsive…”
Three years!? This poor woman. I’m no professional, but I feel like I know exactly what she should do: DUMP HIM RIGHT NOW. I mean, is there any other option? No one deserves to be with someone who finds their genitals repulsive. After the jump, check out the AWFUL advice this woman was given. Keep reading »
Hey, do you think this lip gloss ad from Vbeauté might have anything to do with … well … vaginas? Nah. What about that dress? No vaginas there either, right? [Refinery29]
I’m tempted to respond like a fourth-grader and refer to New Hampshire State Representative Peter Hansen as “penis” for the rest of this post. But unlike this “fairly well-educated” man, I’m not of the mind that genitalia are acceptable substitutes for gender. In an email sent to the New Hampshire House of Representatives list-serv Rep. Hansen wrote (emphasis ours):
“What could possibly be missing from those factual tales of successful retreat in VT, Germany, and the bowels of Amsterdam? Why children and vagina’s [sic] of course. While the tales relate the actions of a solitary male the outcome cannot relate to similar situations where children and women and mothers are the potential victims.”

As a woman in her ’30s, I thought I knew pretty much all there was to know about my body. If you had asked me, I would have sworn I was well-informed. And then I started going to a new gynecologist and she literally blew my mind when she told I’d been checking my breasts all wrong. What? How had I missed this? I knew about the circular check but not the up-and-down pattern. Well, maybe because the last time I learned about breast self-examination was from a pamphlet I got in high school. That was a while ago. After the jump, I asked other women about the most surprising things they learned from their gynos. Keep reading »
A high school science teacher in Idaho is being investigated for using the word “vagina” while teaching a biology lesson about the about the female orgasm.
“I teach straight out of the textbook, I don’t include anything that the textbook doesn’t mention … But I give every student the option not attend this class when I teach on the reproductive system if they don’t feel comfortable with the material,” said Tim McDaniel, the 10th grade science teacher at Deitrich School who dropped the V-Bomb.

The Kardashians have graduated from bodily fluids to bodily scents. On last night’s episode of the “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,” Khloe sniffed Kim and Kourtney’s koochies to see which one smelled better. I believe you would call this a vagina off. It’s like a dance off, but with krotches. The Kardashian vagina off began as all vagina offs do — with jealousy. When Khloe said, “Kim, you’re so gor-gina, that sometimes I want to put my dick in your mouth,” it was ON! Keep reading »
Your annual visit to the lady doctor isn’t necessarily the most pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Between the poking, prodding and your casual evasion of pointed questions like “How many drinks do you have a week?”, going to the the gynecologist is a necessary but not entirely awesome experience. I usually leave the gynecologist with a list of unanswered questions, and I always resolve this situation by taking to Google with a glass of wine, self-diagnosing through the mess of Yahoo! Answers forums and WebMD. It goes without saying that this never really works out for the best. This time, we’ve decided to do the work for you! We consulted the best of the best on the Internet to come up with answers to all those burning questions that feel a little too personal to ask your doctor. Keep reading »
Tatiata Kozhevnikova, the woman with the world’s strongest vagina, can bench press a whopping 31 lbs. with her crotch. That’s like lifting a baby bear cub with your vagina. Bad visual, but you get the point: her vagina muscles are ripped. Kozhevnikova stopped by “The Body Shocking Show” to show off exactly what her super strong vadge could do. God, I love UK television. Don’t worry, there are no bear cubs. But there is a wooden egg in a condom that acts as a pulley for her special vagina dumbbells. [The Huffington Post]
Wake up and smell the vagina, University of Cincinnatti. On Thursday, two student groups displayed “Re-envisioning The Female Body,” a temporary art show of 12 billboard-sized photographs of vulvas, on the campus commons. A student photographer photographed the images [NSFW], which are displayed on campus alongside quotes about sexuality, health, and reproductive choice. The show followed a panel discussion on campus from a local Planned Parenthood.
Not surprisingly, the campus Students For Life group — known for posting explicit, bloody photographs on campus which purport to be of aborted fetuses — are steamed. Keep reading »
