The reply from the clinical sexologist who sent through this submission: I support women doing what makes them feel good and sincerely hope that women who are waxing and shaving do so for their own pleasure – not to follow a trend or make themselves more attractive to partners. Much of my work is helping women (I generally work with women 40-70+) accept themselves exactly as they are – from this, true empowerment arises. As I said, I really like what you’re doing here. Our vulvas are all unique and each one beautiful. Giving women the opportunity to see their normalcy in the sea of diverse vulvas is simply lovely. Thanks for your work.
Thanks for your reply 🙂
Keep an eye out for the next post in the Vulva Art Project – it will be a picture of a naturally hairy vulva (inspired by the concern raised in your submission regarding most submitters removing their pubic hair).
