Eve Ensler
“The heart is capable of sacrifice. So is the vagina. The heart is able to forgive and repair. It can change it's shape to let us in. It can expand to let us out. So can the vagina. It can ache for us and stretch for us, die for us and bleed and bleed us into this difficult, wondrous world. So can the vagina. I was there in the room. I remeber.”
Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues

Gloria Steinem
“No wonder male religious leaders so often say that humans were born in sin—because we were born to female creatures. Only by obeying the rules of the patriarchy can we be reborn through men. No wonder priests and ministers in skirts sprinkle imitation birth fluid over our heads, give us new names, and promise rebirth into everlasting life.”
Gloria Steinem, The Vagina Monologues

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Young girls are like helpless children in the hands of amorous men, whatever is said to them is true and whatever manipulation on their bodies seems like love to them, sooner or later, they come back to their senses, but the scars are not dead inasmuch as her spoiler lives.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Scars Of Beauty

Eve Ensler
“The clitoris is pure in purpose. It is the only organ in the body designed purely for pleasure.”
Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues

Gloria Steinem
“I didn’t hear words that were accurate, much less prideful. For example, I never once heard the word clitoris. It would be years before I learned that females possessed the only organ in the human body with no function than to feel pleasure. (If such an organ were unique to the male body, can you imagine how much we would hear about it—and what it would be used to justify?)”
Gloria Steinem , The Vagina Monologues

Bret Easton Ellis
“...when I look over at Luis in one brief flashing moment his head looks like a talking vagina and it scares the bejesus out of me...”
Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho

Inga Muscio
“Moving from phonetics to etymology, ‘vagina’ originates from a word meaning sheath for a sword. Ain’t got no vagina.”
Inga Muscio, Cunt: A Declaration of Independence

Eve Ensler
“I was worried about my own vagina. It needed a context of other vaginas-- a community, a culture of vaginas. There's so much darkness and secrecy surrounding them-- like the Bermunda Triangle.”
Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues

Augusten Burroughs
“If we happened to be in rehearsal downstairs in my room and a neighbor padded across the lawn to rap gently on the window and ask us to please be more quiet, Natalie might simply lift up her skirt and mash her vagina against the window while extending her middle finger.”
Augusten Burroughs, Running with Scissors

Eve Ensler
“It's a totally ridiculous, completely unsexy word. If you use it during sex, trying to be politically correct-- "Darling, could you stroke my vagina?"-- you kill the act right there. I'm worried about vaginas, what we call them and don't call them.”
Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues

“Seduced her? Every time I turned round she was up a library ladder. In the end I gave in. That reminds me—I spotted something between her legs that made me think of you.”
Tom Stoppard, Arcadia

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“An educated woman is seen as a human being with a vagina. An uneducated woman is seen as a vagina with a human being.”

Andrew Solomon
“John [the father] kept saying, "You have a penis. That means you’re a boy." One day, Shannon noticed that her son had been in the bathroom an awfully long time and pushed the door open. "He had a pair of my best, sharpest sewing scissors poised, ready to cut. Penis in the scissors. I said, 'What are you doing?' He said, 'This doesn’t belong here. So I’m going to cut it off.' I said, 'You can’t do that.' He said, 'Why not?' I said, 'Because if you ever want to have girl parts, they need that to make them.' I pulled that one right out of my ass. He handed me the scissors and said, 'Okay.”
Andrew Solomon, Far from the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Assuming that all ‘unschooled’ people to lack education is akin to assuming that a salary is the only means to make money, or, that a vagina or a penis is the only source of an orgasm.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Nitya Prakash
“Why do "balls" equate to toughness and "pussy" equates to weakness when even the slightest flick to the "nuts" sends a guy to his knees and vaginas can push out an entire human being?”
Nitya Prakash

Antonella Gambotto-Burke
“I refuse to have my vagina photographed because I have no
interest in being desired on the basis of its appearance. It has
taken me decades to appreciate its power and beauty, and not
merely because it birthed a child. Responsive to tenderness and
the source of a luminous ecstasy, my vagina has enabled me to
transcend an otherwise limited sense of self. I feel no need to
make it conform to another’s aesthetic or have it applauded by
strangers.”
Antonella Gambotto-Burke

Antonella Gambotto-Burke
“In the twenty-first century, the vagina has come to eclipse the female face.”
Antonella Gambotto-Burke

“We have been far taught more about shame than about our anatomy.”
Lynn Enright, Vagina: A Re-education

Elle Chase
“Vaginal tissue does not stretch out with use, no matter how much you use it or how large the penis or toy is that it’s used with. For comparison, think of your mouth and how it is stretched and manipulated every day, yet it retains its shape—the same goes for your vagina. But like any muscle, the PC muscles that surround the vaginal canal can get weaker with age and after giving birth. Doing Kegel exercises regularly can help keep the PC muscles from losing their grip and might make your vagina feel “tighter” around a penis if clenched during sex.”

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Some men’s type is women who have a vagina.”

Brittainy C. Cherry
“We have to ice your vagina."

The redness from my furious pain shot straight to a new form of redness from embarrassment as I stood up. "You're not icing my vagina, Ian Parker!"

"I'm just saying it's the best way to get the pain down, and you don't want swollen, um, you know ... lips ..." Now it was his turn to blush a little. Who knew that the playboy of the century could get shy from talking about my inflamed vagina?

"Well, if anyone's icing me down below, it's going to be me."

"No, I can definitely do it. That's what roommates are for, anyway," he joked.

I laughed in agony. "Roommates are for icing each other's private parts?"

"I mean, only the best roommates. Think of it as a roommates-with-benefits situation."

"And the benefit is holding an ice pack to my lower region?"

"Yep. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.”
Brittainy C. Cherry, The Wreckage of Us

Gilles Deleuze
“Flying anuses, speeding vaginas, there is no castration.”
Gilles Deleuze, A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia

Antonella Gambotto-Burke
“This, the “Vagina Effect”, is one of the saddest byproducts of pornography: to attract the attention of jaded males, female performers now feel they have to flash their vaginas – not too obviously, lest more orthodox fans be alienated, but 'accidentally' so as to sidestep disquieting accusations of vulgarity.”
Antonella Gambotto-Burke

Antonella Gambotto-Burke
“Referred to euphemistically to children as 'privates', the vagina is no longer permitted to be private. Instead, it is photographed independently of the face, stripped of identity, of emotional and historical and economic context, and in the service of men: public.”
Antonella Gambotto-Burke

Marquis de Sade
“Thérèse had never in her life, so she said, wiped her arse, and it was perfectly evident that there was still shit there from her childhood; as for her vagina, it was the repository of every filth and horror, a veritable sepulchre whose fetidness would cause one to faint;”
Marquis de Sade, The 120 Days of Sodom

Laurence Galian
“The physical act of forming this sound with your mouth is done by utilizing the tongue, which represents the phallus, exploring the oral cavity which represents the vagina.”
Laurence Galian, 666: Connection with Crowley

Laurence Galian
“Sûfîsm cherishes the esoteric secret of woman, even though Sûfîsm is the esoteric aspect of a seemingly patriarchal religion. Muslims pray five times a day facing the city of Makkah. Inside every Mosque is a niche, or recess, called the Mihrab - a vertical rectangle curved at the top that points toward the direction of Makkah. The Sûfîs know the Mihrab to be a visual symbol of an abstract concept: the transcendent vagina of the female aspect of divinity. In Sûfîsm, woman is the ultimate secret, for woman is the soul.”
Laurence Galian, Jesus, Muhammad and the Goddess

Emily Nagoski
“One more thing about women's external genitals. The name for the whole package of female genitalia is "vulva." "Vagina" refers to the internal reproductive canal that leads up to the uterus. People often use "vagina" to refer to the vulva, but now you know better.”
Emily Nagoski, Come as You Are: The Surprising New Science that Will Transform Your Sex Life

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“One of the biggest problems that most men have with life is that the vagina comes with the woman.”
