What Would Your Vagina Say?

Not to sound crazy, but I’m addicted to The Vagina Monologues. I guess you could say I’m addicted to vaginas? I know, sounds crazy but it’s true. This past Sunday (Nov. 15) is the second time I’ve gone to see The Vagina Monologues. The first time I saw it was last year at USF. That’s when I fell in love with them. I was so moved by the stories these women acted out during the performance. I made a promise to myself that I would go and see the monologues whenever they were in town again and I would bring one of my girlfriends so they would be inspired like I was a year ago when one of my girlfriends dragged my unwilling self to the one at USF.
When you listen to these women talk about their vaginas, it makes you really think about yourself and yours. What would your vagina wear if it were to get dressed? What two words would it say if it could talk? Mine would wear leather and lace if it were to get dressed. If it could talk, I think the two words it would say are “get lost!” Mine is definitely angry. I agreed with what Meena Saxena was saying during her monologue about “My Angry Vagina.” Why do men have it so easy when it comes to their genitals and we have it so rough? Hello, super-sized flowery smelling tampons? A man had to invent that one!
The monologues are something I think men and women should attend if they have the chance. From a women’s point of view, I think we can all relate to what our vagina’s go through during the course of our lives. For a man, I think the monologues could help them to understand why they think we are so crazy.
