"Day Ten - Cervix low and closed. Notice blood spot near os and brown clot near cervix (right). Possibly from vigorous intercourse earlier that day (not mittelschmerz as I am not ovulating yet)." First link has graphic photos that may be NSFW.

It's back and NSFW.

So, it's a catalog of close-up photos of a cervix throughout an entire month, including the beginning of menstruation.

The photos were rather distracting.

Aren't bodies strange? We're just a mass of nerve endings, blood vessels, muscles, tissues, bones, etc. Somehow, something beyond the sum of the parts ties everything together for subjective experiences. Otherwise, you'd have to be some kind of deviant to enjoy sex.

Anyhow, that's rather fascinating. Certainly could satisfy the curiousty of some girls who want to know how they are inside, but feel uncomfortable using a speculum. There's also evidence that, indeed, a vagina isn't a clown car.

Really a speculum is pretty much for someone else to look at your cervix, unless you have a mirror and maybe I'm just a self-hater but MAN, I will not be doing that particular yoga position again anytime soon.

Buddy of mine picked up a chrome/stainless speculum at a yard sale. He used to keep it on the counter of his second hand store. Guys would pick it up and start playing with it (the metal ones have a thumb wheel for adjustment that just calls out to be fiddled with) and then almost invariably drop it like a hot potato when they found out what it was for.

Seriously, I think this is kind of cool. My sex ed was very progressive, compared to the rest of the South, but we never got to see anything like this and I think it's very useful, for both genders. I knew, conceptually, what a cervix was and were it was located, but I didn't fully 'get it' until I saw these photos.

I'm not surprised at the NSFW controversy. A number of years ago it occurred to me that some porn was moving in the direction of ever closer close-up shots, and I began to wonder where this might lead. Perhaps we would transition from external shots to internal shots like we see here, to the final frontier, microscopic porn. Long before the notion of "rule 34" was suggested, or there was even a World Wide Web, I thought the future of porn might be Madonna's Pap Smear.

I mentioned this concept to this guy I met from Texas named Rick Linklater. Later on he incorporated this into his movie Slacker.

Does anyone else here have their own speculum?

In college one of the feminist student groups was handing them out, and having "look at your cervix" workshops. The cute part was when they had a "decorate your speculum" day, and for a few days afterwards there were arty speculi all over campus. My favorite was the godzilla speculum, but the frog one was neat, too.

(The speculum is interesting -- according to this, they are mentioned in the Talmud from about 1300BCE, and are found elsewhere in antiquity. The modern version is credited to J Marion Sims, who was a pretty unethical guy by modern standards (developing surgical techniques on slave women using no anesthesia) but who also made some important advances in the field.)

I found it really fascinating -- like people say, you know about your cervix and inner workings (or one would hope so), but don't ever see it. I was surprised at how much it looks like a glans and meatus. To me, at least.

Speculums always pinch me. I used to think it was the doctor's fault but I've been to more than one doctor now for exams and it's happened every time. Speculums are not my friend.

Tube writes "A number of years ago it occurred to me that some porn was moving in the direction of ever closer close-up shots, and I began to wonder where this might lead."

Rule 34 not withstanding, this is already there. There is porn that seems to consist just of documenting measuring sexual organs in detail. Much of it with extreme close ups. (Ugh, sometimes I hate my job).

FelliniBlank writes "I have to ask, who sells something like a speculum at a yard sale?"

The freakiest one was the one the hippie birth prep instructor showed us, the one that clarifies how a baby can get out of there. Ten centimeters never looked so big.

At our ante-natal class the midwife bought along a couple of chunks of plastic piping, joined by an angular bit, and a newborn infant sized doll. She held it up, asked if we knew what it was ("Uh, downspouting from a house, no wait, too big"), gleefully thrust her hand into it, then said, "actually it's 10 centimetre pipe at about the same angle as the birth canal."

Then she crammed the doll through it, demonstrating the way it would twist around during the delivery. A bunch of the mothers-to-be went quite pale.

A friend of mine from the less populated parts of the Minnesota Iron Range told me her fundy mother was very loath to say any word that was sexually related, but one time was forced to refer to reproductive body parts and called them jen-eat-alls. My friend, who was 13 at that time, tried to stifle her laughter, but couldn't, and so she was sent to her room for the duration.
