If you're a woman with a vagina, maybe you've checked out the lady between your legs before. Not that you'd ever TELL anyone that! But maybe you haven't. You aren't alone. In fact, there are some adult women on this planet who have never actually even seen their vaginas! Their reasons run the gamut. For some it hasn't been physically possible, some had bad experiences that left them scarred and wary. YouTube's own Davey Wavey set out to introduce some of these women to their vaginas.
Davey put out a call on craigslist.org seeking women who'd never seen their own nethers. He interviewed them, gave them a hand mirror and some privacy, and videotaped the results. When this video started making the rounds, I have to say I was initially skeptical. Was this just an opportunity to take advantage of vulnerable women? What I saw was pretty surprising -- and very touching!
Some of the stories are sad -- one woman describes a man's awful reaction to seeing her vagina for the first time, another woman was raped. But some of the stories are quirky and cute, like the woman who just avoided it because she thought she was becoming a nun. The thing that was the nicest was that across the board, the gals were HAPPY with what they saw.
I think looking at your own vagina should be a mandatory part of sex ed. How else are you really supposed to know what's going on down there? I think encouraging women to check out what they're packing could nip a lot of problems involving sexual confidence right in the butt. Guys look at their business constantly. Women should start doing the same. Loving your body means looking at your body means understanding your body. Can I get an amen?
Were you surprised that some of these women had never looked down there before?
