The Great Wall of Vagina

You all know Iím a big fan of vaginas. Vaginas and I are like peas and carrots. As the Girlfriend Gyno, author of†Whatís Up Down There, founder of, and a general lover of women, I think vaginas rock. Which is why I spoke at the BlogHer keynote about†why we canít say ďvaginaĒ on national television. Itís why I traveled around the country speaking to college women about how awesome vaginas are.

And check this out! The top ten most trafficked posts on Owning Pink are about – you guessed it – VAGINAS.

OK, unless I equip myself with a flashlight & a mirror I simply can't see what mine looks like, so I don't worry about it, & not being gay I have no interest in a yone else's. While there has been a small & very select group of folks who HAVE seen my vagina, I'm pretty certain that they would never be in a position to want to discuss it with each other. My man seems to like it & that's good enough for me. If this gives women confidence to be themselves then great, but there are way more important things to be worried about in my opinion.

Thanks for a good article. The Great Wall of Vagina evokes contemplation about the way we might perceive a part of ourselves in a different light. A new light especially after society, cultures, religion have managed to twist the vagina into something demented, unnatural and dirty. Without the vagina we would have no more humans. So all of you woman haters out there if you can find a way to procreate without women - you need to be studied. Women should always be honored as the givers of life. Furthermore, I'm tired of some - I won't name names - at comparing the smell of vaginas to that of fish. That's really disgusting and the fact of the matter is If they smell like fish then they have have an infection and should seek medical attention.

Human anatomy was designed for a purpose. I see nothing wrong with it, or saying the word "Vagina" as well as "Penis". It's just a word - however, I still fee that there are certain things that are not wrong..............just personal and private. Don't tell me about yours, and I won't mention mine, o.k.?

James M is right. Some of the pathetic, kindergarten style comments have no place here. You're quite clearly on the wrong website.
