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.

Well, I have days when I don't it! I'm like you, not symmetrical. I hear it's quite common but it's not something you'd discuss with your friends and women are quite competitive so are not likely to admit to it in conversation. Some days I hate mine, and wish both were short instead of having one long one! Other days I think it's cute and not so bad.

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?

  Can't help but notice that most of us don't look like porn stars. But I try not to compare myself to people who I know have had surgery. It's common practice for women in porn to get a labia reduction op. Or so I'm told by a friend who worked in the industry.

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?

  40. About 10 but I didn't have labia then, so it didn't look like much. I look at mine a lot. They say men are obsessed with their penises but I think women are quite obsessed with their vaginas. We just don't like to admit it.

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?

  I never asked to be honest. I don't think its a good idea to ask, I don't want their opinion. Luckily they have never offered it, and no ones complained. If a guy did say something negative I'd chuck him out. I think that's beyond cruel.

this conversation makes me think...

  We give ourselves such a hard time, from the cradle to the grave. We should just enjoy life, could be worse.
