Having a vagina in tow on this journey called life can mean that you pay quite a bit more for day-to-day living, no matter the country you live in. With tampon taxes and pay gaps making national news, Buddy Loans, a British loan company, added up just how much more money it costs to be a vagina owner. Unsurprisingly, many of the things that cost women in the U.K. extra transfer pretty indiscriminately to the women in the States. Let’s do the math: 1. Read More
An Australian online pharmacy called Chemist Warehouse is getting a lot of blowback for selling a “Virgin Pussy” sex toy, complete with a “realistic hymen just waiting to be popped!” The Daily Mail reported that a group called Collective Shout, which works against the objectification and sexualization of women and girls, encouraged its supporters to speak out against the Chemist Warehouse product.

America’s Next Top Model: Vulva Edition! Perhaps you suffer from the same problem that I do. I desperately want to be a vulva model, but I was cursed with a faulty vulva. Lucky for me, there’s correctional surgery - invasive and non-invasive - to fix this terrible problem. Seriously. There is cosmetic surgery for your vulva. If you have a vulva, and it’s where it belongs, it’s between your legs and you can’t see it. And if someone else is seeing this vulva, I’m sure they’re feeling pretty dang lucky just to see it and wouldn’t dare criticize it. Read More

Model Lauren Wasser is suing Kotex after losing her leg to TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome). Tampons have had warnings that tampon use could lead to TSS since the 1980s, but the design and makeup of tampons hasn’t changed to reduce this risk. Basically, tampon companies have slapped on the TSS warning and ran away from liability—thanks, guys! TSS occurs when there is staphylococcus aureus bacteria (staph) that grow rapidly and release poison in the bloodstream. While TSS isn’t limited to women who use tampons, their usage has been connected to fifty percent of TSS cases. Read More
There are more people involved in the body positivity movement then ever before as we strive to move towards a day when we will no longer have nine year old boys and girls trying to figure out what degree of "hot" they are. And the movement is neither synonymous to being "plus sized" or being "progressive." Beauty is in the eye of the beholder—so much so that an actual definition of beauty doesn't even exist—or shouldn't, anyways. Read More
Yup, that’s right.  This just took the VCC (Vulvar Clitoral Complex, let's make that a thing okay?) to another level. If you’re an open-minded/bare-all-and-don’t-give-a-shit-who-sees-it kind of person, these clit-themed Mac and PC track pads (3 sizes: small, medium, and large) are definitely one way to make that known. So. Here they are. Drawbacks: This item doesn’t really feature a diverse or realistic range of vaginas. Read More
We gotta say, we’re really digging the slew of hyper-suggestive artwork gracing book covers and movie theater walls lately (that Magic Mike XXL poster, anyone?). Visual parodies of male genitalia are basically inescapable, so we thought we might spread a little love to those illustrations honoring female sexuality. Whether intentional or not (okay, who are we kidding, they totally are), these seven works of art undoubtedly resemble lady regions, and we think they’re pretty rad. Nymphomaniac: Lars von Trier is one divisive dude, but this play on the emoticon is pretty clever. Read More
Ask anybody (maybe not anybody) how much sex they’re having on the regs and you’ll get a range of answers—from, “all day, every day” to “3-4 times a week” to “I’m your mailperson, please don’t ask me that.” And all you can really do is trust their word; no statistic can be rubbed under their nose proving them lying sex-deprived losers.

Weed-oil Lube is the Next Big Thing to Put in Your Vagina If you like smoking weed and you like having sex, there’s a good chance you also like having sex while stoned. After all, it heightens sensation, makes you focus, and gives you that underwater-y, I’m-in-a-D’Angelo-video feeling. That’s why Foria—the new lube containing active cannabis oil—seemed like the knocking-boots equivalent of winning The Price Is Right’s showcase showdown. Read More
