Celebrating the Unique Beauty of the Female Anatomy

By
We desperately need to talk about the secrecy that surrounds the vagina or more precisely the vulva, as it is the breeding ground for the insecurity that accompanies it.

Vaginal – Vulva – Labia plastic surgery, also called Labiaplasty, is one of the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures driven by marketing, and by an unhealthy self-image derived from media images of what the “ideal” female genitalia should look like when, in reality, there is a large diversity in female genitalia appearance.

Either there is complete ignorance about what their own private parts look like, or women go to the other extreme and start chopping them about because they didn’t look like porn models.

As a psychologist working to enhance awareness of the pure joys and beauty of intimate relationships, I am often saddened by the very poor body image ladies have, especially when it comes to their genitals.

Thus missing out on the many pleasures they were created to enjoy.

Take for example the clitoris. It has absolutely no function in the procreation process. There is no reason for its existence, yet it has double the amount of nerve endings (about 8,000) than a penis. The entire area of this female anatomy is a prime pinacle of God’s creation bestowed with a maximum amount of pleasure potential!

So it’s time to address the ignorance and shame surrounding this most exquisite private female treasure, and start enjoying, fully, what we were designed to experience!

I was particularly glad to have found a UK artists who specialises on casting the beauty of women’s vulvas as well as the magnificent and very unique variety of those beautiful private “faces”.

Enjoy reading the rest of this post … and above all, study those amazing casts and start celebrating God’s prime creation!

“For many women their vagina is a source of shame rather than pride and this piece seeks to redress the balance, showing that everyone is different and everyone is normal. I hope this sculpture will be definitive and effective in alleviating the anxiety many women feel about their genitals, just as many men do, at the same time as being a compelling and beautiful artwork,” says multi-award winning sculptor and UK’s leading lifecasting artist, Jamie McCartney.

“”Why am I doing it and what’s it all about?” I hear you ask. Well, vulvas and labia are as different as a faces and many people, particularly women, don’t seem to know that. Men tend to have seen more than women, who have often only seen their own, and many have never looked that closely. Hence the exposure of so many, showing the variety of shapes is endlessly fascinating, empowering and comforting. For many women their genitals are a source of shame rather than pride and this piece seeks to redress the balance, showing that everyone is different and everyone is normal.

The sculpture comments on the trend for surgery to create the ‘perfect’ vagina. This modern day equivalent of female genital mutilation is a bizarre practice which suggests that one is better than another. Taste in nothing is universal and any desire for ‘homogyny’ could be very misguided. 360 casts arranged in this manner is in no way pornographic, as it might have been if photographs had been used. One is able to stare without shame but in wonder and amazement at this exposé of human variety. For the first time for many women they will be able to see their own genitals in relation to other women’s. In doing so they may dispel many misconceptions they may have been carrying about what women look like ‘down there’. The sculpture is serene and intricate and it works on many levels.”
