VULVAS have been much discussed in the last few days, thanks to publicity around Laura Dodsworth’s Womanhood Project (albeit in some cases they have been incorrectly called VAGINAS, such as the efforts of World Champion Mansplainer Paul Bullen)
I am a HUGE advocate of everyone being more informed about women’s genitals. It’s a funny old world where men send dick pics to women they fancy but most people have never seen vulvas, and when they do see them they have been usually been plucked naked like some poor chook about to be cooked.
So: let’s throwback to some old essays about vulvas.
