Your Vulva is Perfect: A Poem

In*Touch, my school’s sexual health education group, recently put on an awesome event called the Alternative Vagina Monologues. We invited the community to come and speak out about their vaginas, experiences, sexuality, opinions, etc. in a safe space. Though I was unable to attend the event, I heard that we had some really awesome speakers. Here’s a little poem I wrote for the event:

 

Your Vulva is Perfect

Your vulva is perfect
Yes, it is true
Whether pink and voluptuous
Veiny and blue

Trimmed, waxed, natural
or totally bare
Your vulva is perfect
It’s lovely down there!

Some might say
You’re too hairy, you’ve got too much skin
Your vulva’s too fat
Your vulva’s too thin

I say every vulva is perfect
Just let it be
Every vulva is different
Unique to you or me

So this is a call
To all the people in here
Who love their own vulvas
Now open your ears

I love my vulva!
Yes, there, I said it
Now please just remember,
Give your vulva some credit.
