Shocking! World’s First Vagina Museum To Be Opened (See Details)
According to the development and marketing manager , Zoe Williams , the Vagina Museum will educate visitors about vulvas and vaginas while challenging the prevailing stigma surrounding them , told CNN.
Founder Florence Schechter developed the concept for the Vagina Museum after discovering a museum dedicated to joysticks in Iceland , the Icelandic Phallological Museum , but no counterpart for vaginas. Schechter and her team subsequently launched a campaign on Crowdfunder , initially aiming to raise £300 , 000.
The exhibition will challenge “pervasive myths” about the vagina and vulva , Williams said , “such as that vaginas and vulva need to be cleaned through the use of bespoke feminine cleaning products; however , the vagina is completely self-cleaning.”
“We want to give everyone the confidence to talk about a perfectly normal part of the anatomy , ” Williams explained , citing a study from cancer research charity The Eve Appeal that found 65% of young women and girls in the UK struggled to use the words “vagina” or “vulva.”
“There’s nothing shameful or offensive about vulvas and vaginas , ” she said. “They’re a part of the body that should be celebrated!”
