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 used to not mind it, until I realised that not all vulvas are the same and I suddenly became self conscious of it, wondering how mine compared to others. My inner labia are really uneven - one of them is just right in size, in my opinion, but the other is terribly big and wrinkly! when I first noticed it was growing that way when I was younger, I thought something was wrong! I also do not like the colour, it is very dark.

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 seen photographs in porn mags etc, and in comparison I felt mine was bad cause it was not perfect. I don't really mind myself, as I realise that all vulvas are different, but I worry that men think that any vulva different to the ones they see in porn is not normal/attractive.

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 am 19, and I don't look down there often, but I remember first having a look when I was younger for the first time after puberty really hit, and being upset that it wasn't all tucked inside like it used to be!

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 haven't had any..because I'm worried what they'll say about my asymmetry!

this conversation makes me think...

  I wish men weren't judgemental, or at least that they didn't believe porn was real life!
