My Skewed Vision of the World

Last week I came across this uterus-themed pinata on etsy (above) and thought it was pretty neat. I do, after all, own several vulva puppets and uterus dolls. A couple of days later I received an email from a friend – who had no idea I had come across the uterus pinata on etsy – sending me a link to the someecards blog on which they mock it. “Sure, it costs a whopping $140,” they write, “but inside every enormous paper maché uterus are Bliss dark chocolates, Hershey’s kisses, and tampons. Bat and crankiness sold separately.”

Truly, my only issue with the pinata is that I’m not in favor of beating any lady parts representations with a stick. Not even for the promise of candy or tampons spilling out.

We hope you’ll follow us on Twitter @mysexprofessor and make friends with us on Facebook.
