Teaching Cliteracy 101: "It is a curious dilemma to observe the paradox that on the one hand the female body is the primary metaphor for sexuality, its use saturates advertising, art and the mainstream erotic imaginary. Yet, the clitoris, the true female sexual organ, is virtually invisible."
~ Artist Sophia Wallace
is using street art
and an art exhibition
that incorporates pithy slogans, 'scientific data, historical information as well as references to architecture, porn, pop culture and human rights' to make "the case for the clit"

On June 17, a Chinese investigative journalism program called Xi'an Up Close aired a report detailing a "mystery mushroom" discovered by villagers in a rural part of Xi'an city.
"I've done my own research on the internet," says one villager. "It's a type of lingzhi mushroom, called the taisui."
Residents of the Liucunbu village on the outskirts of the capital of the Shaanxi province say they came across a strange fungi-like object as they hit bedrock while drilling a new well. The perplexed villagers decided to call up their local TV station for help, which sent intrepid reporter Ye Yunfeng to their sleepy little hamlet to get down to the bottom of things. Reporter Ye then begins to describe the curious object as the camera pans in on it. "As we can all see, this looks like a type of fungus, on both ends of which you'll find mushroom heads."
"On this side, you can see what looks like a pair of lips," she adds. "And on that side, there is a tiny hole which extends all the way back to this side. The object looks very shiny, and it feels really fleshy and meaty too."

Gaga singing into my vagina: [SLYT]
"Ok, it was my sister's and my dad's birthday the day I met Gaga. So I asked her if she could wish them a happy birthday into my crotch, because we couldn't bring phones up and I snuck it into my pants. This is what she said, well sang.
Not my vagina. The poster of this video.

- 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.

BYT: A lot of our readers at Brightest Young Things are young women. Is there a main thrust of Vagina Power that you want to communicate directly to them?
It was just this morning, on the prompting of a friend, that I found myself examining Alexyss Tylor's Vagina Power
again, including our home grown transcript
of her vagina power philosophy. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but when I tuned into my favorite website
about the D.C. social scene this morning, I fell off my chair

The Power of the Penis
[YouTube],[NSFW]. I'm sorry for making my first post ever a single link YouTube post, but this Atlanta Public Access TV clip is the most educational video I have ever seen. Alexyss Tylor hosts a show on 'Vagina Power 'and 'Penis Power' with her mother. It's about 9 minutes of true insight - women, don't let men hit the bottom or use their penis as a weapon! Separate the love, the orgasm, and the penis, OK? Make sure he buys you the shrimp plate though!

You can't say vagina
in one Minnesota high school. A button bought at a production of the Vagina Monologues brings some students into conflict with the school.

The vagina monoliths?
Host to theories ranging from alien landing site to Druid calendar, a University of British Columbia gynecologist believes Stonehenge may have been built to deliberately represent a gigantic female sexual organ.

Bailey + Rankin Down Under
- Exhibition now showing in London. Beautiful? Shocking? Most striking is the contrast created between related subject matter by two of the world's top photographers. NSFW (unless you work in either a gynaecologists or a top model agency).

The male species has it easy.
Feminist magazine Amp meditates on whether women should hover or plonk when they go to the bathroom. "It's like learning how to whistle. You have to learn how to position your lips for the best results."
This article isn't work safe. In fact I'm not sure if it's safe at all.

to buy a Vagina Washing Rod
Badly translated Korean catalogue entry. ("Purity, an essential device for cleanliness of women daily!") 2.
"No, Mom! It's for hygeine! Really!" 3.
Look, just take a second, and think about what it does
. Now think about where it goes
. Still interested?
