Yes, I just used the word vagina in the title of my post. As far as words for genitals go I have always found it lacking somewhat but the thing is, that’s the word. I happily say penis to my son so I am just going to have to get over the word vagina.
To help us today I’m just going to repeat it a few times so we can get the blushing over and done with. Ready? OK. Ahem.
VAGINA. VAGINA. VAGINA.
How are we doing? Stopped blushing yet?
So, where were we?
That’s right, vaginas and the fact that some chicksters out there have never even looked to see what the damn thing looks like.
Please don’t take it the wrong way, there is no judgement here when I say that. None. At. All. So if you’ve never seen it then don’t feel bad. I just never ever realised this was the case for some people.
I know this now as some dude named Davey Wavey has done what can only be termed as a public service and posted the result on youtube, which sounds like it might be gross and explicit. It’s not. It’s actually cute and awesome and does something pretty great.
Davey found these rockin’ ladies by posting an add on Craigslist for chicks who had never seen their vaginas. I have not seen said add but it must have been pretty persuasively worded otherwise I would have just been thinking PERVE. In the end he had a number of responses and 5 women made the final video cut.
There were a number of reasons why these women had never had an old squiz down there. One lady had been raped, another had wanted to be a nun, another had been overweight all her life and her tummy was in the way (there are other reasons but don’t want to spoil it all for you).
Davey, bless his heart, rigged up a vagina booth and handed each chick a two sided mirror and videoed their reactions. Everyone looked a bit awkward and embarrassed when it was their turn but they also looked relieved and liberated at the end. It was pretty damn cool.
Check it. It goes for a whole 3 min 23 secs so no excuses now.
So if this is you, if you haven’t looked “down there” because you feel scared or ashamed or worried then don’t be. It almost certainly isn’t as bad as you think, looks pretty much like most pictures you would have ever seen of one (even thought they are all different) and it doesn’t come to life and rip your head off just for saying hello.
Remember, you are in charge of your own body. It isn’t in charge of you. The vagina has no power over you and looking at it harms no one. The best part? No one even has to know.
Have fun with that.
