New York Times: All The News About Labias That's Fit To Print

What the hell?

Our Vaginas, Ourselves

These are cruel times for vaginas. Lately, as if I don't have enough to worry about, with the deadline on various unkept 2005 resolutions fast upon me, I have begun obsessing about various aspects of my genital appearance. Take my labia minora, for instance. Tucked away as those intimate folds of flesh are - hidden in the underbrush, you might say - I have never given them much thought, except as they relate to experiences of sensual pleasure. Ditto my labia majora, which dutifully served their purpose in guarding the entryway to what the Victorians would have quaintly referred to as my maidenhead. As for the much vaunted hymen (named for the Greek god of marriage), mine remained intact longer than most thanks to my slow-blooming erotic life, until such time as a boyfriend's patient late-night exertions finally parted me from it at the age of 25.

She then goes on to discuss fashions in pubic hair.

Is this the New York Times or Penhouse?

The author that piece, by the way, is Daphne Merkin. I guess this was the piece she was born to write.

Thanks to Allah, who writes to me to say he attends a large northeastern university and never thought these New York Times columns were real until something happened to him to convince him otherwise.

Related: I wrote about my own complaints in this regard some time ago.
