Yep, There’s a Vagina Museum and It’s a Wild Ride!

Once upon a time, a science communicator named Florence Schechter visited a museum in Iceland dedicated to the peen. Yes, ladies and gents – there’s an entire museum of penises. There’s also a Penis-themed park in South Korea too where you can picnic next to pork whistles of all shapes and sizes. 

There are penises to sit on, to play on, to ponder on. You can read scripture on penises and even listen to the penis wind chimes blowing in the breeze. It’s a great day out for the entire family.

But what about vaginas? Where’s the love for the vajaja, people??? 

This is the question Florence asked herself and the very reason she founded the one and only Vagina Museum. 

Take a trip down vagina lane at the Vagina Museum

The goal is simple – to celebrate the vagina – with four main areas on display: anatomy, health, vulva diversity and activism.

According to the Vagina Museum website,

“The Vagina Museum was founded with the intention of busting the stigma of the gynaecological anatomy and be part of a societal shift from bodily shame to celebration.” 

The museum is free for everyone, which is pretty cool, and the exhibitions vary every few months. You’ll find artwork on display as well as sculptures and cliterature to peruse at your leisure. 

Past exhibitions include Entrometrisis: Into the Unknown, Muff Busters and Periods: A Brief History. 

“The gynaecological anatomy is a part of the body roughly half of all humans have, yet it is shrouded in stigma and shame.

The lack of understanding, representation and information around the vagina, vulva and whole gynaecological anatomy means that it is a taboo subject for many people. This build up of stigma leads to many negative impacts on people’s lives. We believe it is a part of the body that should be celebrated. 

Through dedication to learning, open discussion and intersectional feminism, we can make this happen. We believe all people should know that there is nothing offensive or shameful about our bodies,” the website reads. 

Hoo-Haws for sale

In addition to taking in the exhibitions, there are heaps of merch on sale as well including postcards, art prints and accessories.

While you can’t ride a vagina quite like you can at the Penis Park, there are still plenty of things to look at and learn about and, honestly, it’s a breath of fresh air to see a museum that celebrates the Magic of the Minky, Big V Energy and feminine sexuality. It’s about damned time.

For those who enjoy a cool bevy on a hot day, there’s a new VB to try. It’s not Victorian or Bitter, but rather Vagina Beer. Yep, someone went there. A Polish beer company to be specific. The company brewed up a batch of yeasty deliciousness made from the “essence of hot underwear models”.
