Vagina Monologue: 10 Things We Shove All Up In There

By  | 

Hey, Blisstree reader! Check out our follow-up post – Inside Story: 10 More Things We Stick Up Our Vaginas.

Let's face it. We women – and our partners and gynos – jam a lot of stuff up into our lady orifice. Some of these devices hurt (curse you, speculum!), others don't (hello, vibrator!); many are liberating (contraception), others completely life-changing. (Can you imagine how your poor grandmother survived without tampons?) Here's our top 10 list of weird shit we shove into our vaginas (well, penises aren't really weird, but you get our meaning), proving just how strong, tolerant, resilient, and awe-inspiring we women are:

1. Speculum – High time for a re-design; this thing's fucking uncomfortable. (photo: Thinkstock)

2. IUD (Intrauterine Device) – T-shaped? Copper? Crazy! (photo: WebMD)

3. Tampons – Thank you for these, dear inventor, Dr. Earle Haas. (photo: Thinkstock)

4. The Diaphragm – For some reason it reminds us of Bonnie Franklin on One Day at a Time. (photo: Planned Parenthood)

5. Female condoms – Nice idea, but does anyone actually use them?

6. Vaginal Spermicidal Suppositories, Sponges, Creams, Foams, Gels, and VCF (Vaginal Contraceptive Film) – Better safe than sorry. (photo: Planned Parenthood)

7. Vibrators – Women are always buzzing about them.

8. Fingers – For business (say, finding that disappeared tampon) or pleasure. (photo: Thinkstock)

9. Dildos – Your grandmother probably didn't have these, either.
