Sex Education – Let’s Talk About “Those” Girly Bits!
There has been a lot of talk lately on labiaplasty and how common this is now becoming. So today I want to focus on some basic SEX Education for all adults, both young and old.
Let’s get some basic facts first about female genitalia. For some reason everyone is calling this region a vagina when this is actually not the correct term. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not really fussed if you call it that rather than the correct word, which is vulva, just don’t call it some silly name like “fou fou, woo woo or coochie” or something else silly! Because vaginas or vulva’s are far from silly, they are serious, they are fun, they are for loving, they are a treasure trove, they are delicious and they are for enjoyment and should be celebrated for all the different ways they look.
So here’s some SEX Education to get you more familiar to your relationship to self.
It saddens me that there is a lack of education around what our vulvas look like and that many women actually believe that there is something wrong with theirs. The only thing they have to compare it to is porn and unfortunately here in Australia and probably lots of other countries there is a cencorship law which doesn’t allow the inner labia to be shown. So when some women look at their vulvas they think they are freaks and this is so not the case!
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE VULVA & THE VAGINA?
The vulva is the whole external genital area and has more than 1 component and includes the outer and inner lips (labia), which has many nerve endings, the clitoris and is the gateway to the vagina which is in fact the canal that connects to the uterus and cervix.
What many women don’t realise is that all vulvas are different. Just as the length of the inner and outer lips can vary from woman to woman, so can the depth of the vagina, where the Gspot, Uspot & Aspot are located a well as what the actual Vulva looks like. Some inner and outer lips will be different sizes, some will have more folds of skin & others will be neat and tidy. Our clitoris also comes in different shapes & sizes, some are hooded & some are more exposed.
Different doesn’t mean wrong or weird or freaky. We are all different shapes and sizes, short, tall, large, small, blonde, brunette, so if that’s the case, then why would our vulvas be the same?
Unfortunately, too many women are undergoing labiaplasty and it really has to STOP! There is no need for it as your vulva is perfectly normal and beautiful, just the way it is. Unfortunately for women unless you are a beautician doing waxing, or into women sexually, you are not going to get to see other women’s vulvas.
How many of you have actually got a mirror out and looked at yours?
CHECK OUT YOUR OWN
If you haven’t I really recommend that you do. If you are looking at porn magazines or porn online, quite often you are seeing very neat and tidy vulvas and that’s because of ridiculous censorship laws. Hence the rise of labiaplasty because women don’t know that this is the case and that vulvas come in all shapes and sizes.
If you are interested in more information there will be a workshop running on the Sunshine Coast on Wednesday, 18th December where more information and discussion will be held with the purpose of Sex Education and learning about your relationship to self. Please contact me for information.
