101 Vagina in the media

Italian radio R101 discussion about 101 Vagina

Am super excited that 101 Vagina was discussed on popular Italian radio station R101 by host Marco Balestri on 24/10/12.

Here is the audio of the spot and below is what that did to the website traffic!

I have no clear idea how things are over there in regards to genital taboos and body image shame, but I hope that it got people thinking and talking a bit.

Would love some comments below about the nature of the vagina taboo in Italy, how the project was received by the audience and what kind of discussion ensued.

Analytics are so good!


Launch into the tweetosphere !

Omg omg omg, I’m allowed to be excited about this, right ?

Amanda Palmer tweeted this to her 700,000+ followers!

This might be normal or meh to some, but it’s the single biggest publicity hit so far!

I have also tweeted about the project to Johnny Depp (just started a publishing company), Oprah (saw her show YEARS ago where they were saying “vagina” out loud), Pink (bits), Lady Gaga (body image campaign) and Michale Moore (body politics). let’s see if they get behind the project… I think I’ll wet my pants if they do!


Other notable tweets so far:

Catherine Deveny (Comedian etc. Was in SBS ‘Go back to where you came from’)

Australian Federation of Medical Women (!!!)

Lisa Rogers (Made the labiaplasty documentary ‘The perfect vagina’)
