personal: eye of the beholder
 
do you like the way your vagina looks?
For the record, the vagina is actually the canal inside. What I think of as the face of the vagina—the lips, the clitoris, the clitoris' hood, etc. all the parts you can see—that is called the vulva. So, this questionnaire is about how you feel about how your vulva looks. [see vulva diagram] though I can't help but ask the question as: do you like the way your vagina looks? because that's what I've always called it...although, that's changing...—Alexandra

do you like the way your vagina looks? go into some detail about what you do or don't like about it.

 
I really really do like how my vagina looks. When I was younger (teens) I was extremely self-concious because one inner labia is longer than the other and can sometimes protrude, but now I love it. When I lie down on my side, from behind I think it looks like a clam or mussel sticking out it's tongue!;) Hee hee hee. I'm a pretty whimsical thinker, you see. And just in the past year I've started doing Brazilian wax, which makes it so soft and smooth. I love it!

 
  have you seen many other women's vaginas? in photographs or live? where did you see them? did you compare yours to theirs? what did you think?

  I have never seen another vagina in person, but I just adore looking at the countless photos of vulvas on the web and seeing the amazing variation that we women have. I feel like vaginas are such a beautiful and precious part of our selves. I do compare mine to theirs, in part to reassure myself that I'm normal and healthy and attractive, but also just because it's fascinating and awe-inspiring.

 
  how old are you? was this the first time you took a good look at your vagina? – if it is the first time, did you expect it to look the way it does? how often do you typically look at it? when was the first time you looked at it?

  I'm 30. I've been looking at my vagina for at least 10 years, but not really in depth until the past 2 years, since I've started giving myself bikini waxes ( I will NEVER again let someone else do that for me!). I look at it just about every day, it makes me feel affirmed and beautiful and sexy

 
  have your lovers told you what they think about how your vagina looks? what did they tell you? did you ask them, or did they offer?

  My ex used to say I had such a pretty pussy! I never liked that word until he starting telling me that, now I love it and use it all the time! It reminds me of pussy-willow and pretty soft things like that. He just told me of his own accord, I didn't even think to ask. I felt so complimented!

 
  this conversation makes me think...

  How empowered I feel about my body, how proud I am to be a woman, how grateful I feel to be accepting and loving of my body, especially the most private and tender part of it.
