It was at my six-weeks-postpartum appointment that someone in the birth world finally admitted what we all fear to be true: vaginal birth can ruin your vagina, even might ruin it—and, in my case, did.

A large installation in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles in France has come under scrutiny recently, after the artist told a French newspaper that the piece, called “Dirty Corner,” represents “the vagina of a queen who is taking power.”
The thought was delivered just after my newborn’s placenta: A sneaking suspicion that things were not quite the same down there, and they might never be again. I was reminded of the kGoal, a device that claimed it could tone my ladyparts back into pre-baby shape. Once my daughter had finished using my vagina as a…
A French court has informed Facebook that they certain DO have the jurisdiction to rule in a freedom of expression case brought against the site for nuking a man's account over a very well-known and artistically significant painting of a vagina.
Björk's latest, Vulnicura, is an album documenting her divorce from artist Matthew Barney, and all the moderate peaks and cavernous valleys divorce entails. While it was not my favorite Björk work musically speaking, it was undeniably one of the most lyrically candid albums she's ever done, in a career that was…
Republican State Representative Vito Barbieri from the state of Idaho thinks that a woman's vagina has some sort of direct passageway to her stomach because, I mean, how else does the pee come out?

Megumi Igarashi, the Japanese artist arrested in July for crowd-funding a kayak shaped like her vagina, has been formally indicted on obscenity charges. Igarashi has been arrested twice this year over the kayak. She now faces up to two years in prison and a fine equivalent to $20,755.

For women who suffer from atrophic vaginitis, or vaginal atrophy, sex is incredibly painful, but hopefully, help is on the way. The FDA has just approved a new procedure to combat the condition that consists of firing tiny lasers in your vagina. Sounds pretty fucking metal.

Like the cast of Orange Is the New Black before them, half of British young ladies have no idea how their vaginas work. Someone should call Sophia Burset aka Laverne Cox for her tutorial; it worked so well the first time.
Last week, three women were arrested after they attempted to steal a couple Rolexes from two unsuspecting tourists in Las Vegas, stashing the valuable evidence in their trusty vaginas. Good grief.
