“I have always had a pretty intimate relationship with my vulva, particularly since I’ve been a swimmer for 16 years. I was comfortable touching it, pulling a swimsuit out of it in public, and having it covered by a piece of polyester perfectly shaping it for all to see. However, for a long time I was ashamed of the way my vulva looked. My inner labia hang quite low compared to my outer labia, my hair grows wild, and I get red bumps with even the slightest irritation. It wasn’t until my senior year of college, as I was leaving an increasingly unhealthy and abusive relationship, not only towards me but towards my vulva as well, that I truly began to reconnect with myself and my vulva. Many things contributed to my growth: the end of my swimming career sparked my adoration for my bush, and regaining my self-confidence urged me to be positive about and proud of all parts of myself. My current partner, who I met during this time of reclaiming my pussy power, has also been an unforgettable part in my ability to love myself again, a journey I embark on daily. He doesn’t make me feel ashamed and loves my vulva the way it is, and however I want it to be. I think human bodies are works of art, and yet we are so often made to feel ashamed of our own. So when I saw this gallery, I fell in love. I had never wanted to send someone a photo of my vulva more. It is so amazing to be a part of a community in which empowers anyone with a vulva to support each other in showing off, being proud of, and loving our vulvas as they deserve.” – Thank you for being part of the gallery ♥️
