this is not precisely about vaginas, but it is about my body.

i was reading afraidtoask.com and, just for the hell of it, i used their bra size calculator, and according to them, i am a 36C. i have been wearing a 36B forever and ever, but now that i think about it, my bras have been getting a bit small on me. this is... interesting?

could someone else try their calculator to see if it runs a bit large? i'm rather curious.

Hello girls! I've had a chronic yeast infection for a long while now and i'm a bit concerned. This is my first yeast infection ever, and it seems to be lasting for a quite a long time. I haven't taken any antibiotics, gone swimming, or anything. I've been to the doctor twice, and both times she gave me that diflucan pill. I've been itching like crazy! Should i eat more yogurt?? Is this normal?

Vagina Fact: The Secret of Hearts
The typical shape of a heart has been represented for years as a universal symbol of love. Yet the what we have come to recognize as a Heart was actually recognized in the days of the ancient Romans and the Greeks as the the representation of a vagina. The two upper curves of the heart symbol were the representation of the outer labia, while the sharpened bottom represented the inner labia.

The Heart symbol would often be found in the temples of Venus (Aphrodite) and Juno (Hera) the two major matriarchal goddesses. However the symbol was typically associated with Venus, not because she was the goddess of love, but that she was the goddess of sex and adour.

What one must keep in mind is that in opposition of what has been written about Greek life is the belief that they were a patriarchal favoring society. This is untrue in everyway. In fact, it is just the opposite. The Greecian society lived in honor and reverence of women, and saw them each as goddesses in their own way. And they had variety of depictions of how their goddesses looked on terms of physical beauty. Archeology has discovered from painted statues that Aphrodite was not blonde but rather she was red. Athena the Goddess of Wisdom had raven features, and the goddesses Hera and Maia were blondes.

What is also proof of Greek matriarchal favoring is that Greece was the first country in Europe if not the world where female homosexuality surfaced, from the island of Lesbos thus giving female homosexuals today the title of lesbians. Because of this understanding of female homosexuality they were like-wise open to male homosexuality, which flourished during the Alexandrian period of Greece.

Over time with the fall of matriarchal favoring Greece and the growing patriarchal Rome, along with the spread of Christianity, the vaginal symbol of Aphrodite was converted into the symbol that we know it as today, simply because of the fact that the patriarchal Christian religion could not tolerate a representation of female sexual pleasure. Especially when it was associated with female homosexuality.

Thus the true meaning of the heart symbol.

where were their mothers? (rant)

so i loved the pussy rings (www.proudpussy.com) that someone posted in here a couple of days ago so much that i posted about it in my lj too, and then someone else i know posted it in theirs...

can i just say that there are a lot of silly, undereducated boys out there? i couldn't believe a couple of the comments. there were just a couple of guys that said things like only one of them was cute, and the rest looked like they belonged to porn stars and girls that had been sleeping around.

it made me sooo mad. little boys are raised in an atmosphere that all penises are different and they're all great and that everyone should have one, but the moment some woman doesn't have the vulva of a four year old or a soft core airbrushed porn model, then their cunts are automatically ugly? where do they get off assuming that larger labia meant that the woman had slept around? silly boys. my only response to them was that they obviously hadn't seen very many naked women in their lives. i wish i had one of those rings right now and i would SMACK them in the forehead with it, so that they would bear the mark of a beautiful pussy for days and days and days.

bleargh. sorry. i'm done now. i just knew you would listen and appreciate it.
