What shocks you, that I speak the word vagina or that I speak the truth?!
Hmm, this is becoming the kind of story that uses the word vagina a lot.
"2 Girls" is one of those new-season sitcoms whose writers have persuaded themselves of the comic powers in the word "vagina"—a delusion that may pass in time.
Which has got me thinking that maybe the word vagina is just not meant to be spoken outside of an intimate conversation.
After a while, if you say it often enough, the word vagina is just plain boring.
In fact, a recent episode must have set a record for the most mentions of the word "vagina" in a network half-hour.
Just a sidenote, who thinks going out and fighting crime in an outfit that pretty much shows half of your vagina is a good idea?
Someone in the writers' room really likes saying the word "vagina."
These are castings of labia, the vagina is the interior part.
My goal is to have every person on the planet using the word "vagina" every day, freely, without shame or guilt because "vagina" is not a four-letter word.
