There is no such thing as a “perfect vagina” and English artist Jamie McCartney set out to prove that with his” Great Wall Of Vagina,” which features the likenesses of over 400 women’s’ vaginas ranging in age from 18 to 76. McCartney’s piece includes the vulvas and labias of mothers and daughters, identical twins, transgendered men and women, pre and postnatal mothers, and women who have had labiaplasty surgery.
“For many women, their genital appearance is a source of anxiety and I was in a unique position to do something about that… Vulvas and labia are as different as faces and many people, particularly women, don’t seem to know that,” says McCartney.

You might remember the woman who found herself with a penis-shaped cake pan and attempted to find creative ways to use it. That was satire. This birthing cake is not. The Pinterest user who made this cake — featuring a strawberry vagina giving birth to doll head — and posted it with the caption: “The Baby shower vagina cake I made for my best friend! So funny yet so disturbing♥♥”
And she’s not the only who’s minus a best friend after showing up at her baby shower with a bloody vagina. There are vaginal funeral cakes and crowning uterus desserts all over the internet. This leads me to believe that birthing cakes are a thing now. I’ll begrudgingly participate in the poop in the diaper game, but I flat-out refuse to eat a slice of labia/uterus /fetus layer cake at your baby shower, even if it’s made out of chocolate sprinkles and pink buttercream. Sorry, it’s just going to work for me. [Mommyish]
