No love

However, when I began to write extensively about female health and sexuality, I realised that by not using the word vulva, I was doing myself and my genitals a disservice.

Euphemisms for the naming of the parts is a not a disservice. To worry about such things is a narcissism showing that you’ve not got anything to do in your life.

    Yes Lynn, agree you probably do want to use the correct medical term in writing about health matters.
    ” and sexuality”
    Oh, that too, well ok, maybe loosen the language up a bit on that subject? You don’t want to put people off what you’ve got to say on the matter..

    “It is a place of independent female sexuality……And so the vulva has been sidelined.” .Ah, lynne, you place all your insights on the other side of the bank, but this isn’t a functioning bridge, we can’t go over it, we stay put, we can’t join you on your island, but that’s ok you can enjoy yourself apparently.

    I can’t fucking wait. How long before this “re-education” is compulsory, with Plod going after transgressors? Wild and crazy notion, huh?

  6. We are soon releasing Polly’s latest extravaganza

    “Polly’s Tuscan Vulva Romp”

    Any would-be rompers?

  7. Vagina: A Re-Education

    This is surely from The Onion not from real life! The book title tells you absolutely everything you need to know about the author – and more.

  8. I happen to agree with her – I think it’s daft that all those feminists mistake one bit of their quims with another.
