Pardon my bluntness, but I love women's genitalia and how visually fascinating it is. I'm not gonna lie. And if you feel the same way, you owe it to yourself to snag a copy of this book of art photos of said anatomical region, as possessed by everyday, ordinary women, and not filtered through what some have described as "the pornographic male gaze." Definitely a feminist piece, this book celebrates the beauty and diversity of the vulva in unapologetic detail, and I cannot recommend it enough.

This is a deceptively small and simple picture book consisting of a variety of shapes, sizes, ages, and flesh tones of the female genitalia. One could easily look at the entire thing in a matter of seconds or spend the better part of an hour or more looking at these.

Granted, not everyone might find the subject matter to their interests but I feel that is exactly the point. For this is not pornography, nor is it an art book…if anything it is actually a psychology book, as it will cause the viewe

"A good counterbalance to the shaved, waxed, and airbrushed images from porn. All girls should be able to get an idea of what real bodies look like, and this is a good resource."

Five stars on principle. This is an important book that should be shared and discussed.

Vaginas of all sorts of shapes, sizes, ages, and colors. I call it a picture book. The appeal is, admittedly, limiting. The imagery, however, is undeniably fascinating and beautiful. If it sounds like something you'd be up for, check it out.

Recommends it for: Women, not men.
Recommended to Stephy by: It wasat a Library Friend's Sale for $2.00
In the mid Seventies, Tee Corrine published a marvelously popular little "Cunt Coloring Book". This volume is a much slicker version of that, with photos of women's vulvae. I guess I'm enough of an old timey Dyke that I can't make the jump from the coloring book to this. In 1993 I was busily engaged in caring for my dying mother. I didn't have time to care, and later, no interest. I found it in the Library Friend's Sale. The cunt Coloring Book has the advantage that you can actually color in it! ...more

I love this book, it is a series of beautifully shot, uncandid images of wimmins vaginas, really gives you a new perspective, without the probnographic vibe, vaginas look like virgin mary! I lent this book to my friend Marc and he still has it, if you read this Marc...pleeeeeeaaassse send it home.

Recommends it for: people who've never seen real vulvas
Shelves: art, sex-nonfiction
This is a picture book in the truest sense of the word.

It includes no text (except for possibly an introduction), just page after page of color photos of women's vulvas. Wow!

A beautiful and powerful book.

Probably everyone should "read" this - so much variation packed into such a tiny book!
