A Call for Models

What makes our model program so important?
There is a collective belief in society today, especially among women, that only one kind of Vulva that is attractiveWe also have this idea that other women look more or less the same and our Vulva is just way off from what's normal. 
Both of these ideas complete bunk. 

In a study done in London looking at just 50 women they found the length of their labia minora ranged from 20mm to 100mm.  So there goes the “yours is off and everyone else’s is normal” idea. Right out the window. And I can tell you, 3 years later, 25 models later and at least 100 portrait pendants later: I have never seen two women who’s Vulva look the same. And we don't stop there. We ask them to share their stories. So they act as advocates for others who have experienced something similar.It let's others in that same spot know that they are not alone, and at the same time it challenges the way others think about people in that situation: It is easy to judge or hate people when you don't know anything about them, it is a lot harder to do that when you hear their truth.

The beautiful thing about our model program is it completely obliterates both of those ideas. All of our models are different, each one unique- their own snowflake. And yet every single one is beautiful.
It’s an understanding that we are trying to spread like wildfire. The more models we have the more we represent the wide range that is women’s beauty and the experiences of those of us that have Vulvas. We serve as a visual and emotional reference point of what it is like to live in the world as individual and what real, un-altered women’s bodies look like. We are tired of the self-shame, you know it because you feel it to. So stand out as an icon of what real beauty is and spread the Vulva Love.

As a note: when we say Vulva we mean ALL Vulvas, regardless of whether you were born with yours or you had to fight for yours.

I really look forward to see some pieces modeled after older women and transwomen.
