Vagina Play: Let’s Shift Taboos

Welcome to it’s time to get over taboos about the vagina. There should be no shame in having a vagina and honoring the super powers that the vagina possesses. I like to refer to the vagina as the party girl because she knows how to have a good time.

It’s tough to get into 2000 years of non-ideal “media” about the vagina in a blog post. The good news is that more or more young and old ladies are elevating the conversation about the vagina and her supporting girlfriends – the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, ovaries and clit.

There’s still a lot of opening up and sharing that’s needed as we approach 2017. Time for vagina play!

A British organization, Ovarian Cancer Action, recently did a women’s health study that highlights existing taboos related to girls/women shame about their bodies.  Here are a few troubling takeaways:

 

  • 66% of young women said they’d be embarrassed to say the word “vagina” to their doctors.

 

  • 57% said they’d rather google their symptoms than go to an OB-GYN for a sexual health issue.

 

These taboos and lack of communication have a serious negative impact to a woman’s emotional and physical health. How many health opportunities are missed for women because of feeling uncomfortable or nervous to mention a vital body part or describing what’s going on there?

Let’s face it – there are a lot of vaginas out there….millions upon millions. They’re everywhere. It’s it time for us to be able to talk about it freely rather than it be an unmentionable.

My theory is that it’s time to play, ponder, place one of your feminine super power on your radar in order to appreciate your magnificent vagina.

Here’s a puzzle to get you thinking about your vagina in a different way. If you’re not used to saying the word out loud, try to see how many times you can bring up “vagina” in conversation. Could be fun!
