[NSFW if your boss is a snoot]
In the spirit of my last post about how estrogen imbues women with a higher tolerance to pain, I am endeavouring to bring you, my faithful feminist followers, a special gal-centric #Humpday post.
I wanted to write a tongue-in-cheek #Humpday post with a video of what sex looks like from inside a vagina, but all of the videos I found were hosted on porn sites; if there is one thing I can’t abide, it’s when science is sexually misappropriated (??)
Instead, I found the Beautiful Cervix Project:
“The Beautiful Cervix Project encourages women to learn cervical self-exam and fertility awareness as a revolutionary path of promoting respect, confidence, and health. We believe that this form of self-empowerment and education will help contradict shame and misinformation around women’s reproductive health and choices, affecting positive change from the personal to global levels.”
The blog is beautiful, informational and features more photos of cervices than you can shake a stick at. Want to see what a cervix looks like on the first day of a period? They have that. In middle of the cycle? They have that. Want to see a cervix with the strings of an IUD poking out? They have that too. If you want to see your OWN cervix, they offer ‘Empowerment Kits’ with flashlights, a hand-mirror and other necessities.
Here’s a lovely cervix right here:
I won’t bother with warnings about images of blood or discharge- as a woman, I’m sure you know what you’re dealing with, and as a man maybe it would serve you well to learn what women are dealing with. I find most of the photos quite beautiful in one way or another (#cervixenvy)
This site is a beautiful example of a positive, supportive resource for women young or old who want to learn more about their bodies.. and somehow I found it through a porn site called ‘XHamster’.
Happy #HumpyDay y’all.
