Meet Cassandra Bankson, a YouTube celebrity who’s helped millions cover up severe acne with her makeup tips. And now she’s helping the world learn about something even more important: Bankson’s just discovered that she has two vaginas and she’s letting the entire internet know.
In a segment for Bancroft TV, Bankson visited a doctor to discuss her condition, which Death And Taxes reports hasn’t just caused her to have two vaginas, but two uteruses and two cervixes as well. And, Death and Taxes points out, all of this has been validated by a medical professional, so Bankson isn’t peddling a satchel of lies like the fraudulent three-breasted woman.
Instead of trying to get a reality show out of it, Bankson’s goal is to educate the world about “uterus didelphys,” which occurs in approximately one out of every 3,000 women, making the condition uncommon but not entirely rare.
From Death and Taxes:
“Most vaginas are one large cavity but this is a complete separation into two different cavities. I was shocked and the doctor explained to me that it was like an upside nose,” she told Bancroft TV. “I didn’t really know what to make of it – I was just in shock but I don’t really let it get in the way of my life. It certainly helped explain a lot of things.”
Some of the things that the diagnosis has explained are Bankson’s severe menstrual cramps and the fact that she has up to two periods a month. She’s also hoping that her condition can explain the fact that she’s endured severe acne all of her life. But she’s not too concerned with the fact that two vaginas will change her whole existence. She’s not discussing whether it’s affected her sex life—although she says some women have more sensation due to the large amount of nerve endings—but says that in terms of leading a happy and healthy existence, having two vaginas hasn’t affected her negatively. In fact, if anything’s problematic, it’s the fact that Bankson only has one kidney, which may affect her health later in life.
Bankson spoke to Cosmopolitan UK about her condition and says that everyone she knows has been supportive about both her condition (although, how could you not be? What is there to be unsupportive about if you’re not a horrible garbage person?) and her speaking out about it. “It’s no real issue for my friends—I just tell them that I’m pretty special but they just see me as Cassy—not Cassy with the two vaginas,” she told Cosmo. Well, now she’s Cassy who’s famous for having two vaginas, but somehow I doubt her friends and family will see her any differently.
