Vaginas are an unfair source of widespread confusion and embarrassment: Plenty of us don’t know how they work or what they look like. But it’s not just popular culture that gets vaginas wrong. Scientific and medical minds long misunderstood female anatomy. We didn’t even fully know how the clitoris worked until 2009, and even today, many textbooks still misrepresent female sexual anatomy.

Two science startup dudes introduced a new product idea this week: a probiotic supplement that will make women’s vaginas smell like peaches.
Austin Heinz and Gilad Gome, the founders of biotech startups Cambrian Genomics and Personalized Probiotics respectively, previewed their plans for a line of customer-specific probiotics, including the “Sweet Peach,” at the Nov. 19 DEMO conference. The probiotic is designed to prevent yeast infections and UTIs, but will also make women’s genitals smell like ripe fruit. Read more on Huffington Post Women…
Yeah, I know that #notallmen are dum-dums about the way that female bodies and brains work, but I can produce evidence from the Internet and my inbox that enough are to merit some clarification. Seriously, some of the things humans with penises say about humans with vaginas are mystifying, especially when it appears that the Penis Humans don’t think that Vagina Humans are of the same species and therefore have an entirely different set of elements governing the way our bodies work.
I’m not saying this stuff to pick on guys. I’m just saying it to express my bafflement. If a vocal group of ladies were saying on a consistent basis, “Isn’t it so weird that guys have hair all over their bodies?” y’all would be pretty baffled by that sentiment too. Without further ado… Keep reading »
There’s a bit of stereotype that all gay men are, like, viscerally repulsed by the vagina, or at least completely flummoxed by what’s going on between our legs. A few years ago while out to dinner, Shannon O’Malley asked her gay friend Keith Wilson to draw his interpretation of a vagina and the results of his handiwork (on the wax paper table cloth that I’m sure some waiter was delighted to discover) were so funny, that the project “Gay Men Draw Vaginas” — and a subsequent Tumblr blog — was immediately born. The pair commissioned drawings from friends and strangers at “public vag art booths,” and submissions started to come in from all around the world, revealing the variety of ways gay men think about lady bits. The drawings range from abstract — inspired by artists like Matisse or ’80s pop art — to textbook and clinical, with lots of hilarious cheekiness in between and not a drop of revulsion. Click through for some of my faves and then, if you like what you see, support O’Malley and Wilson’s bid to turn the project into a book by donating to their Kickstarter. [Kickstarter]
Before I used Foria’s Cannabis Lube to get my vagina high for the first time, I had a lot of thoughts running through my head about what it would be like. Is it going to be a high that’s similar to smoking weed? I love smoking weed. Or will it be more of a body high, like when you eat pot brownies? Oh shit, am I going to trip balls? Maybe I shouldn’t do this on a Tuesday. I wonder if it’ll be easier to orgasm when I’m having sex if my vagina is stoned? Ooh, I wonder if my orgasms will be more powerful too. That would be awesome.
The truth is, it’s really kind of difficult to explain what it feels like to get your vagina high. But goddammit, I’m going to try. Keep reading »
