beautiful

I am loving it!

Hey there,

I’ve seen your posters alllll over Brunswick St, and I have to say I.am.loving.it!

After 25 years of not accepting my ‘female bits’, I’ve finally said enough is enough! I want to love my whole self, including the bits seen as ‘dirty’ amongst society and throughout the years & faiths. Women are beautiful, loving, intuitive creatures, and we need to start believing in that- and LIVING that! For ourselves, and for the sake of future generations.

I’d be more than happy to pop some posters around if you need help with that?

Ooh and also, something else that has helped me get so in touch with myself is the Mooncup… I can’t even begin to describe what a difference it has made to my life! They’re someone you could send a message to, or post your link on their Facebook wall…? Just a thought!

The center of my being, is she…

“The center of my being, is she…

My lovely lady bits have been quite the cause of some trouble and blessings…

She was my own personal play thing until the age of 16, when another form of play was found.
Girls, boys and toys each had their share, until her primal design was put to use, when, three times, my singularly unique vagina brought my children into the world.
Her narrow canal being stretched and pulled to unimaginable shapes and sizes, only to remarkably snap back to true form.

She has been the cause of envy, temptation and desire with many questing after her and the body to which she belongs. She has stretched her tendrils into my mind and whispered gently in my ear willing me to travel to faraway places in the quest of satisfaction.
Jealousy over the desire shown by others caused a breakdown in a long term relationship, but freedom was gained, and my oh my, did she drink from the overflowing cup of attention.
Through boyfriends, girlfriends, lovers, a marriage and several swinging sessions, she has never let me down.
She has kept all my secrets. She has been my honest center of feeling. She never lies about whom I love or desire.

I am a Mother, a Lover and a Girlfriend. She will never leave me. She will always please me. We know each other so well.
She is beautiful, special and there will never be another like her.”

“Normal”

“When I reached puberty I always thought my vagina was ‘normal’. This was however until my older sister saw me naked me one day and proceeded to tell me that I was ‘abnormal’, since my labia protruded from my vagina. In view of this my whole outlook of my body changed. From that day on I felt ugly. Although I have taken steps to talk to my body whilst looking at my vagina and tell myself I am beautiful, I continue to struggle with wholy loving and accepting that I am indeed not aesthetically ugly but beautiful. Iam 42 years old. This is my biggest challenge in life. I have a divinely beautiful life however if I am honest to myself it continues to have an impact on me in different ways than being sexually abused as a child/adult has. Thank you for allowing an avenue to express my hang up! :)

Gratitude…”

“Aware & Proud”

Hey Philip,

Great idea! :)

I would love to be involved, both by being photographed & by writing a short piece or paragraph.

It took me many years to feel comfortable with my vagina – to even look at it, properly, in a mirror. I used to think it was vulgar & something taboo, to be hidden & ashamed of. Much of that was to do with my early childhood sexual experiences – against my will.

I now think it is beautiful – a work of art :) MUCH healing has taken place for me over the years. I am 37 this year. It has only been approx 5yrs since I became more aware & proud of & in touch with my sexuality, and sexual organs.

What an amazing & empowering experience!

I highly commend you, for this magnificent idea! Women all over, even without any experience of sexual misconduct, are often shameful & afraid of their luscious womanly ‘parts’.

Such a book will bring awareness, self confidence – and probably a giggle :) to women – and men alike.

I am in!! :D

“Beautiful flower”

Hello there,

Good on you for such a remarkable idea! I am already trying to think of how I can have such a wonderful book in my house without my step children finding it. Or how I can get down to Melbourne, from Brisbane, so that I can participate. Although, I am a little disappointed that you are only taking a front on view, because I’ve always found puss’s to be the most beautiful flower when they are opened up and there is so much detail and difference when you can see the whole thing. I also understand that you would probably get much less participation if that was the prerequisite. So, fair play. Also, I guess, it might be seen as a wank book if you showed open flowers. I digress.

As I really couldn’t get down to Melbourne until September, I might try to write something worth showing.

Bravo to you – I wish you good luck in all that you endeavour,

Becca x
