We Love Vaginas!
The Badger Herald (nothing to do with Harry Hill): Vaginas … start up a conversation about vaginas with 10 different people and you are guaranteed to have 10 completely different conversations. Some people are grossed out by vaginas. “Vagina is such a dirty word,” one guy said. “Penis isn’t, but … vagina. Eww.” He shuddered. Others are proud to speak about vaginas and will spout out “fun facts” about female sex organs, like “The average clitoris is just a bit smaller than the average non-erect penis” (thanks, Molly).
The truth is, everyone should be proud of vaginas because you either have one or you came out of one. Or so the authors of Vaginas: An Owner’s Manual say. They’re right.
Regardless of what you think, you have probably noticed the vagina revolution over the past few years. It’s everywhere — sort of a positive public-relations campaign. This semester, “The Vagina Monologues” was here, and the authors of “Vaginas: An Owner’s Manual” were here last night at Hillel. It’s in the magazines we read (there are plenty of articles about clitorises in men’s and women’s magazines) and the shows we watch (I can think of multiple “Sex and the City” episodes focusing on the vagina).
So what is all the fuss about? It’s to bring attention, to clear up misconceptions and to answer questions — which is great. But even with all the press vaginas have had lately, there are still some disagreements over the correct way to approach this term." [Read the whole story]
