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. :)

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.

I'm brand new! I'm Yui, a 20 year old college student from Louisiana. I have a boyfriend who's the greatest ^^ I enjoy video games, computer work, etc. I'm very happy (and proud!) to be a part of this community!

I've been lurking around here for a lil bit but never formally introduced myself.

I am studying Psychology at a small school in central Florida. My parents, boyfriend and everyone else I know live in Ohio (where I grew up). My high school years were very stressful and complicated. Now, I'm just trying to learn to love and accept myself. :-)

I love the women in here. This was a wonderful idea and it has turned into a beautiful community.
ex_analise765 21st-Oct-2002 02:48 am (UTC)
Hello, I've been reading posts for a little bit and think this is a wonderful community, sooo I made the commitment and joined :)

I am 22-years-old but feel alot younger. My name is Lisa, by the way. But I prefer to be called Analise. I am a university student at a local university (I love in New York), studying psychology. I plan on eventually becoming a social worker or PsyD. Not sure yet (depends on my stamina). I'm a sophomore because I started off as a part-time student, as I suffer from OCD and BPD and live under the umbrella diagnosis of "mood disorder". These things complicate my life greatly and cause many vaginal infections (STRESS!!!).

I have chronic bacterial vaginosis. I tried Depoprovera once (1 shot) and it messed with my moods in a very major way and is now messing with my period in a very major way. Suffice it to say that I will no longer partake in hormonal birth control methods.

I am very open about my sexual health and my vagina but find it difficult to find others like myself who don;t cringe at the word "vagina". My mother is not open about such things and so I have grown up hating my vagina. I'd like to learn to embrace it. It took me a long time to masturbate without feeling guilty, so this community and its openness should be good for me.

I would love to celebrate my vagina with you all!

I've been a member here for awhile but have never really said anything. Hopefully, that'll change.
My name is Jen and I'm 19. I live in Arizona with my boyfriend and a cat named Bean. I'm very interested in women's health and issues. I tend to worry a lot about anything and everything, so this place is very good to calm my nerves about certain things.
Thanks for making such a great place for women!
