Self-described 'vagina witch' Courtney Maria Halsted is making a living teaching women to strengthen their lady parts and improve their sex lives by increasing relaxation and boosting orgasms. Columbus police announce arrest of suspect in child beating video. Man gets ticketed for illegal drinking while onlookers help pay it off.
I'm sure you don't need another reason to love Planned Parenthood, but I'm about to give you one anyway. The women's health organization recently released a series of videos to teach us all about vaginas, and that series just so happens to feature real, live, furry kitties to help drop those TruthBombs. And let me tell you, you're definitely going to learn something.
Vulva is the general name given to the external parts of the female genitals. All women have vaginal discharge or secretions which help to keep the vulva and vagina moist and remove bacteria and dead cells. If your vulva feels irritated, however, it is important to seek advice from your doctor as to what might be causing the irritation.
I'd love to know when we decided to call our lady parts by the wrong name. It reminds me of my Grandma Rae, who up until the day she died called me "Arr-e-on" instead of "Air-e-anne. Maybe that's what happened with the vulva. Did you know that our vagina as we know it is, in most cases, not really our vagina?
These men would tell me things that were untrue and I would count ceiling tiles while they fumbled around in the wrong ZIP code, if you know what I mean. Instead of correcting them, I just nodded and faked my share of orgasms because I prioritized men feeling comfortable over my own sexual pleasure. Studies tell us that up to 67 percent of women who have experienced penile-vaginal intercourse have faked orgasms.
They both start and end with the same letter, are in the same general region of the body, and are often confused—so what exactly is the difference between them? While many people mistakenly use the words interchangeably, the vulva refers to the outside parts of the genital area that you can see. The vagina, on the other handis the canal-like structure on the inside of the body.
Back to Sexual health. The vagina is designed to keep itself clean with the help of natural secretions discharge. The vagina is a tube of muscle inside a woman's body that runs from the cervix the opening of the womb to the vaginal opening.
There are so many parts and structures that make up the female sexual and reproductive anatomy, so you get a pass if you aren't deeply familiar with each and every one. No, what you see on the outside is NOT your vagina. Despite popular use, vagina isn't a general word for the entire swath of bodily real estate below your hips and above your thighs. Vulva is the general term for the external parts of the female sexual anatomy.
As far as we know, people are not going out of their way to sell us probiotics to make our feet taste better, or repackaging wet wipes into being specifically to keep your knees fresh. Women do not benefit from untested products that are not supported by basic science and rely on destructive, patriarchal messaging. Despite advocates for steaming, douching and moisturising among other things the reality is that the female genital area needs no such bells and whistles to remain clean.
Founder Florence Schechter launched a crowdfunding campaign in March to raise funding for the world's first bricks and mortar museum dedicated to vaginas, vulvas and the gynaecological anatomy. After its first exhibition at the Edinburgh Fringe inthe Vagina Museum travelled across the UK as a pop-up museum, generating a huge buzz at every stop. They are amazing and do wonderful things. The main goal of the museum is to de-stigmatise this part of the body.
