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, Trials Of A Damsel

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

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

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

Tom Stoppard
“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

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

Roman Payne
“Ô, the wine of a woman from heaven is sent,
more perfect than all that a man can invent.”

Germaine Greer
“The vagina is obliterated from the imagery of femininity in the same way that the signs of independence and vigor in the rest of her body are suppressed.”
Germaine Greer, The Female Eunuch

Eve Ensler
“If overthrowing some five thousand years of patriarchy seems like a big order, just focus on celebrating each self-respect step along the way”
Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues

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

“Ma'am is yet another horrible-sounding word in the lexicon of words that women are stuck with to describe various aspects of their body/life/mental state/hair. Vagina. Moist. Fallopian tubes. Yeast infection. Clitoris. Frizz. These are all terrible words, and yet they are our assigned descriptors. Who made up these words? Women certainly didn't. If, at the beginning of time, right after making vaginas, God had asked me, 'What would you like your most intimate and enjoyable part of yourself to be called?',' I most certainly wouldn't have said, 'Vagina.' No woman would, because vagina sounds like a First World War term that was invented to describe a trench that has been mostly blown apart but is still in use. Even off the very top of my head I feel like I could have come up with something better, like for instance the word papoose, which actually as I'm typing it feels like an incredibly brilliant word for vagina.”
Jessi Klein, You'll Grow Out of It

Milana Jacks
“I always hoped I’d be the one to tame the bad boy. It’s a stupid girly thing, the universal belief in vagina magic where men change after having some.”
Milana Jacks, Sweet Dirty Wolf

Eve Ensler
“I had always thought of my vagina as an anatomical vacuum randomly sucking up particles and objects from the surrounding environment.”
Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues

Ada Palmer
“Now, the penis is round, and the anus is round, while the vagina’s opening is long and narrow; clearly then Nature designed the penis to fit into the anus, not into the vagina.”
Ada Palmer, Too Like the Lightning

Gloria Steinem
“In the 1970s, while researching in the Library of Congress, I found an obscure history of religious architecture that assumed a fact as if it were common knowledge: the traditional design of most patriarchal buildings of worship imitates the female body. Thus, there is an outer and inner entrance, labia majora and labia minora; a central vaginal aisle toward the altar; two curved ovarian structures on either side; and then in the sacred center, the altar or womb, where the miracle takes place - where males gives birth.
Though this comparison was new to to me, it struck home like a rock down a well. Of course, I thought. The central ceremony of patriarchal religions is one in which men take over the yoni-power of creation by giving birth symbolically. 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. No wonder the male priesthood tries to keep women away from the altar, just as women are kept away from control of our own powers of reproduction. Symbolic or real, it's all devoted to controlling the power that resides in the female body.”
Gloria Steinem, The Vagina Monologues

Abhijit Naskar
“There is no such thing as “vaginal orgasm” vs. “clitoral orgasm”. The entire ring of tissues that surrounds the vaginal opening is connected to the clitoris by nerves and blood vessels. Ultimately all these tissues together are responsible for the female orgasm. This entire erogenous zone is often referred to as the “ring of fire”.”
Abhijit Naskar

Virginia Petrucci
“What bothers me most about my teeth is that they don’t travel loin south, don’t sprout from the Mother Mouth. Vagina dentata, come closah, say high.”
Virginia Petrucci

“Your mouth belongs in my Vagina

This was said to me in a University Library and the only person present was in a picture clearly marked Stephanie Lord.”

William Shakespeare
“Yo seré un parque y tú serás mi venado.
Aliméntate donde quieras, en la montaña o en el valle;
Pace en mis labios, y si esas colinas están secas,
Aléjate hacia abajo, donde hallan las fuentes agradables.”
William Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis/The Rape of Lucrece

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Size definitely counts: some things are too small … and some are too big.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Eve Ensler
“I realized that the hair is there for a reason – it’s the leaf around the flower, the lawn around the house. You have to love the hair in order to love the vagina. You can’t pick the parts you want.”
Eve Ensler, The Vagina Monologues

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“The use of reason and that of an erect penis are mutually exclusive.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
