Vulvas are the gateways to the universe. We are all connected through this exquisite passage. All men, women and children on this earth have special, undeniable bonds to vulvas and we must honor them, in all their raw, fragile, tantalising, powerful beauty.
It took me a long time to realize this power. I never really spent time with my vulva until I reached womanhood. As a youth, I saw it as something quite functional. A place of pleasure, a exit for my monthly period, something to fiddle with, or a place to warm my hands when it was cold. But when I started to think more about motherhood, when I started to respect my sex and took more responsibility over who I gave it to, when I grew into the woman form of my child self, I really start to think and feel differently about my vulva. My vulva is my heritage. My vulva is my offer of true intimacy and love with my husband. My vulva is where I will welcome my children to this world. How can I not be totally in love and thankful for my vulva.
