Gwyneth Paltrow is in the news again promoting scientifically dubious treatments for your vag. One practice that Goop has popularized is vaginal steaming. In this episode, we find out the history of V-steam and whether or not it’s actually good for you (Spoiler alert: It’s not! Don’t steam your vag!). OB/GYN Dr. Jen Gunter joins us to explain why your vulva doesn’t need a steam cleaning, and Lizzie Marx educates us on steaming’s weird Medieval ancestor, womb fumigation.

    On Eating Your Placenta

    39:22

    As you may know, some people advocate for eating one’s placenta after the birth of a child. The placenta can–according to proponents of the practice–be steamed, stir-fried, blended in a smoothie, or dried and encapsulated in pills. A whole host of benefits have been claimed, as has an ancient and global precedent. In this episode, we look for historical evidence of human “placentophagy” and ask scientific and medical experts to weigh in on the trend. Sources/Transcript: tinyurl.com/vm-placenta

    The Myth of the Victorian Vibrator

    49:29

     People with clitorises have been solo paddling the pink canoe since perhaps even before actual canoes were invented. Early on they invented tools to ease their burden. The greatest of these, the vibrator, has a wild origin story concerning Victorian doctors...which unfortunately isn’t true. In this episode, we explore the true history of the vibrator with historian Dr Fern Riddell...and its future with the owners of the Glasgow sex shop Luke + Jack.

    Hair and Back Again: A Pube’s Tale

    40:19

    People have really strong feelings about “hair down there.” You could say it’s a “prickly” subject. But the way we talk about our pubic hair speaks volumes. In this episode, we part the bush of history to explore pubic hair preferences past and present. Dr. Kate Lister (Whores of Yore) gives us a history lesson on 18th century pubic hair wigs, the founders of FUR talk body-hair-agnostic beauty, and illustrator Hilde Atalanta shares insights from The Vulva Gallery. ***Show Notes & Transcript: tinyurl.com/vmnotes0103*** TRANSCRIPT Show Notes “Consider the Merkin: A Brief History of Pubic Wigs in Hollywood” (Article) A Curious History of Sex by Kate Lister (Book) “A Curious History of Sex by Kate Lister review – from blindfolds to bikes” (Review) Whores of Yore (Twitter Account) “Nae Hair On’t” by Robert Burns (Poem, read in this episode by Ian Diamond of Luke + Jack) FUR (Company Website) The Vulva Gallery (Website) The Vulva Gallery (Instagram Account) Vagina Museum Links Vagina Museum Website Vagina Museum Events Vagina Museum Twitter Vagina Museum Instagram Vagina Museum Facebook

    C U Next Tuesday

    46:09

    Fanny, minge, vajayjay, pussy, down there, yoni...There are hundreds, if not thousands, of terms in the English language for vaginas. Many of them are sexist and most are rather unhelpful. But none is as taboo, as frowned upon in high and low society, as much of an assault on the average upstanding citizen’s ears as “c*nt.” What’s up with that? What did c*nt ever do to you? In this episode, we answer those burning questions with the help of Fiona Sterling, bona fide Scottish person, and Professor Emma L.E. Rees, AKA Prof Vag.  *********Show notes & transcript: tinyurl.com/vmnotes0101********* TRANSCRIPT Support the Vagina Museum!
