earthchildnz Who Am I ??11th-Aug-2002 02:51 pm (UTC)
After 30 yrs, Im still trying to figure this out im afraid..

So yep Im 30, have 3 precious children and a partner (we live seperate) who I daily love and fight with. We both have wild mood swings (bi-polar) so my life is a bit of a roller-coaster, but im sure it makes good reading..

I found this community and LJ through a link from magicalmoons inspirational personal site. Thanks so so much..

Its great to read the posts from such open minded and aware people..
Love you All ... ~Clare~

Stumbled upon this community by looking through random journals. By the way, what a great community!

I'm a youngin'[16 to be exact], and I saw the community listed on one of my friends' journals. I read it for awhile, and came to love it. I've been considering a lot of things recently, and I wanted to read about some of the things...I had seen questions about the same things I was questioning:) I love it here, and never made a newbie post. Rock on, vagina lovers=)

i'm a 23 year old bi-sexual woman from chicago. (this sounds like a personal ad. sorry.) i currently live with my boyfriend and we are learning all the joys and pitfalls of monogamy. you will see me on here extolling the virtues of Instead and polyurethane (especially the Female Condom.)

i don't even remember how i found VP, but i am always extemely grateful that i did. i've never seen such a supportive and active community ever! everyone here has always been truly understanding and helpful. there is always someone here who knows how to help you. there is always someone here to listen. always someone to share with.

and the creativity and resilience of the women you'll find here! oh! they are always teaching you something, always helping you to learn more about the way your body works, more about how to love yourself and why you should love your vagina.

come and join us! i promise you will be a smarter, better person for it!

just another vagina-bearing superstar,

my name is kate, 22 year old woman from northern ontario, canada. and i LOVE MY VAGINA.

when i was in high school me and my girls informally called ourselves the vagina club, we were very open when it came to matters of femininity, feminism and sexual health. i love my friends, i love my vagina, and i love the vagina club :P and now i love vaginapagina, too.

i saw this community in a few profiles from people in sextips, and found it very interesting =) i'm 19 (eek i'm turning 20 in a month) i go to UCSB, and always thought that women should be educated about their own body. glad to see something like this on LJ =)
septembergrrl 12th-Aug-2002 06:58 am (UTC)
Hi. I'm 23 (24 in 3 weeks), straight, engaged, and monogamous. I came here because I'm really interested in women's health and women's bodies - I an't remember if I got here from the Riot Grrrl community or from searching for the interest women's health. It's a GREAT forum.

Rock on, Vagina-bearing superstars!
skyes 12th-Aug-2002 07:21 am (UTC)
hey.

24 and pretty obviously female.

getting married in three freakin' weeks.

joined because it's tough to turn to some one and say " My vagina feels under-appreciated."

great community.

even greater to watch the facial expressions of my co-workers when they read the community name. *evil grin*
steelribbons 30th-Sep-2007 05:20 am (UTC)
I just wanted to ask you exactly what you meant by " joined because it's tough to turn to some one and say " My vagina feels under-appreciated." " I think that I can relate to this, so I wanted you to clarify for me what exactly you meant : ) Love to talk to you!!
bookgrrrl Hi12th-Aug-2002 10:54 am (UTC)
I'm 25. I love my vagina. She loves me right back.
I live in VA w/ my partner of 3 years.
She loves my vagina too ;)

I'm here because I am all about chick-empowerment.

Viva la vulva!
falls2climb 12th-Aug-2002 07:47 pm (UTC)
I'm a 22-year-old North Carolina college student who loves her vagina. I had my clitoral hood pierced last February as a sign of independence and self-love... something for me to enjoy, a special secret for myself, something I didn't have to share with anyone but myself. I enjoy being able to post freely about the subjects in this community without hearing "eeeewww!" at the subject matter.
venusflesh 12th-Aug-2002 11:24 pm (UTC)
I'm Tiffany, I'm a queer 20 year old grrrl living in the San Francisco Bay Area. My loves are singing, music, writing & reading, traveling, people, art, movies, web design, and city life. I pride myself on being passionate, caring, friendly, smart, thoughtful, creative, and a non-conformist.

I found this community because some of my friends on LJ were members, and they had mentioned it here and there. I think this place is wonderful! :)
tonapah 13th-Aug-2002 02:02 pm (UTC)
I'm a 23 year old Bay Area chick, getting ready to move to Los Angeles for grad school. Happily engaged, unhappily about to enter a long-distance relationship (due to the aforementioned move for grad school). My relationship with my vagina is so-so, as I have a lot of problems with repeated UTIs, but I'm slowly learning how to treat my girly parts better.

I'm glad I found VagPag. It's been a big help in my effort to learn to love my body. :)
chaiya 19th-Aug-2002 08:42 pm (UTC)
I found this community through links from mactavish. I'm 23, bisexual, and continually growing closer to my lifemate (my vagina).

Thank you so much for building this community! I know, it sounds sappy, but I'm really grateful. :)
rockstarbob Re:19th-Aug-2002 11:33 pm (UTC)
I'm grateful too!

I didn't have any idea that it would grow to be what it is now. I learn from it every day and I'm very glad it exists. :)

Err....
Just re-introducing myself because I thought this would be a better place to do it. Thanks for the comments I got on the other one! :)

...
I'm new. Yes. Uh huh.
I'm female. and I love it!
My name is Bobbie, I'm 17 and from Christchurch, New Zealand.
Bisexual, yes. And in a long-distance relationship with a female.
I love female musicans, art, music, writing... all sorts of things. And I love learning new and wonderful things about the human body.
I find this community very interesting, very entertaining and very comfortable... if that makes sense? This community is such a great idea! I'm so excited! :)
I look forward to meeting you all, and when I have problems in the future with my vulva, you'll be the first to know! :)
Thanks for your time,
Bobbie

I'm Kyrie, although I usually sign my posts as "K." I'm 35 years old, bisexual, and a solitary Wiccan, currently living in Albuquerque. I'm a recovering "Feminazi;" but luckily my friends and relatives let me live to outgrow that stage. I still am active in women's health issues, particularly a woman's right to choose what happens to her body.

Most of my adult life, I've had hypothyroidism, though I didn't find out until just this year. Since I was a teenager, I was never very interested in sex - I'd get hormonal for a month or two over a new person, and then the hormones would wear off and I'd go back to being asexual. I thought that this was just the way I am. But now, I'm on a thyroid replacement medication, my thyroid level is up to normal... and suddenly I can understand why people think that sex is more fun than Scrabble! I still occasionally wonder how most folks ever manage to get anything done. :)

Along with this - "rekindled" or possibly "newly created" increased sex drive, I've taken a new interest in my vagina. While I was feeling ambivalent or uninterested in sex, it wasn't much more than the opening from which I peed and occasionally bled. Now, though, it's something interesting... something to play with, and explore, and show off. I'm currently going through a phase of shaving it, which I'd never done before, and I'm amazed at the tremendous difference that a shaved pussy makes. Not only are sensations amazingly magnified (wheee!), but... well, it's hard to explain; it's like, now that I can see it, I know it's there. I have a belly, so when I stand up and look straight down I don't see it; but if I bend over a little, Hello! there it is. I'm not used to being able to see it, to explore it.

Like most folks, I was indoctrinated that my vagina is a dirty place, though I have to admit I didn't get that implanted nearly as strong as many people seem to have. Still, it's somewhat difficult for me to talk/write about my vagina, especially about enjoying and exploring it. I may be an enlightened, polyamorous, 30-year-old sex-positive hedonist... but it's still hard, y'know?

Anyway, hi. :)

Hi there.

I'm a 20 year old female from Florida who doesn't really have much to say about my vagina at the moment but that I do have one and this site kind of caught my attention. I am currently a college student studying Radiology and I have long term plans to get my degree and take the out of state examination and move to somewhere just outside Atlanta, GA.

I am saying Hi for the first time and yeah, GOOD DAY!

My name is Candi, which is short for Candida ironically enough.
I joined because this sounds like a cool place and alot of my livejournal friends are members. pixiepuff is a proud member and suggested I join because I recently just got my first UTI. (Actually on a second round of antibiotics.)
anyway, vagina talk and vagina health tips = good stuff.

:-D

Hey, I'm Sarah - I may post under mfcentral (my sexuality journal), or under moominmuppet (my main journal). I'm 27, bi, poly, and a number of other adjectives and pretty intensely involved in sexuality education and women's health activism. If you're deeply intrigued or desperately trying to find a way to waste a few minutes, my personal website is here.
