Madeleine Ryan
One comment

Coming off the pill and the unexpected death of my pussycat has left me wondering what it means to truly love one’s pussy. Throughout my life, caring for my vagina has been about altering its appearance, or concealing its machinations somehow. I’ve been like a Sim waiting for directions. Stories about hair, or lack of…

At this point, we all know about the vagina boat artist in Japan, Megumi Igarashi (who goes by Rokude Nashiko), right? For those living under a rock of legal phallic art, Igarashi has been arrested in Tokyo on obscenity charges. In an effort to ‘make pussy more casual and pop’, Igarashi has used a vagina…

They excrete things, they sprout things, sometimes they make embarrassing noises during sex and the owner has to pretend it didn’t happen, or at least pretend they didn’t hear it. I know, the weirdest. They’ve also been the subjects of intense artistic fascination—especially from male observers—basically since art was invented….

‘v’ for vagina

lip magazine
9 comments

It seems we are up in arms again, after being confronted with two, small clinical words.  Carefree’s latest advertisement features an attractive ‘carefree’ brunette, appearing seemingly naked but tastefully hidden behind an array of flowers.  She approaches the camera with a formal but quirky, direct approach, reminding us that ‘even that bit of discharge in-between…

Dear Carefree, Thank you. Thank you for calling my vagina a vagina. Thank you for talking to me like I’m an adult. Thank you for not reducing my menstruation to a pun with a stuffed beaver. Thank you. Growing up, I often wondered why the creators of commercials for pads and tampons thought my blood…

‘v’ who shall not be named

One comment

Why is it that the imagery of the female genitalia causes such controversy? You often see stone statues depicting men in all their naked glory in a public space, so it got me thinking, what is it about the beautifully natural aspects of a woman’s body that people find so confronting? Even women themselves shy…
