The Visable Vagina exhibition in New York

In protest to how the female genitalia is mainly only seen in pornography and almost always for the exclusive pleasure of men, this show was designed to showcase artwork that empowers the vagina and finally makes it visable to the public.
"The goal of this exhibition is to remove these prurient connotations, implicit even in works of art, ever since the pudendum was prudishly covered by a fig leaf".
Just like us, these artists feel it is time for female genitalia to be honoured and celebrated.
This exhibition attempts to free the cunt of its prissy fig leaf and display it for its true and mesmerising beauty.Thank you!!

I'm Lady Cunt

I built a wall around my lady garden
when i was young...
i was told stories, crazy stories
about someone invading my lady garden
but i don't remember
so i'll never really know if they're true

so i built a huge cold stone wall around my lady garden
it was big and protective and i felt safe
yes i did
i loved that massive wall
it looked after me
it was always there

Sometimes boys would like to visit my lady garden
I let them but i didn't like it
So i pretended
I moaned and I groaned estatically
and screamed my face off erratically
Then i cried myself asleep hopelessly

So, over time, i turned my back on my lady garden
I let everything die
the soil was parched and burnt
there was dead weeds everywhere
and it wasn't cool
no fucking way was it cool

The wall was still there, protecting, minding
but then someone threw a seed over my wall
and i felt an undescribable stirring, i got curious
what was this? little green shoots that had roots
and then a tiny beautiful flower tentitavely grew
Reaching its face up to the sky in aspiration of the future

Through further exploration,
I learnt to plant my own seeds
I've witnessed many flowers blossom
I now have bouganvillia and lavender
And I water it carefully and regularly
Butterflies come to visit occasionally in the summertime

The wall is still there
I love it too much to knock it down
But the flowers grow up around it
And there's an opening for my husband
A sweet sweet opening
to a special place inside me
Where everything is very fucking cool

I don't call it my lady garden anymore
Because I want a real name
that holds the history of womenkind
Of godesses and whores
A name that is the only one that women have
That tells our stories of pain, love and hope

It's now my Cunt
and I'm Lady Cunt

Monthly Women's group in Brighton

We were thinking of starting a monthly group in Brighton for us women to talk about all things Cunt related.
We could share stories on contraception, menustration, pregnancy, miscarriage, abortion and of course sexual pleasure! An idea we had was to send an article or documentary around each month and then at the meeting we could discuss it. There would be opportunities to share artwork, songs, poems and anything else Cunt related.

Contact if interested.
