Know Your Vulva
Know Your Vulva
You probably call it your vagina (or your va-jay-jay) and it does go by many names, but really it's your vulva. And did you know that your vulva is not your vagina. Join Binderful's resident female anatomy expert, and sexual & reproductive health consultant, Angela LeMire, as she exposes the secrets of your nether regions.
This body-positive class will teach you the difference between the vulva and the vagina, anatomy and physiology of the vulva, how to deeply explore your own vulva by performing a vulvar self-examination, and the art and history of the vulva. Using humor, honesty, and kindness, this class gives women a way to consider and intimately interact with their bodies in a way that is liberating and empowering.
You'll begin building vulva self-esteem while feeling more prepared to have informed conversations with others about the awesomeness of the vulva.
