The trouble with female genitalia: Part two of the documentary series The Medicalization of Sex| October 11, 2011
In the second part of this documentary series, Meghan Murphy looks at social perceptions of female genitalia. Why is the alteration of women's pubic hair, vaginas, and vulva such a common practice in our culture? Is there something inherently problematic about women's genitalia?
This episode features portions of a talk by Virginia Braun, a senior lecturer in Psychology in the University of Auckland in New Zealand. The talk, entitled, "The Curious Case of the Designer Vagina," was recorded at the Medicalization of Sex conference in Vancouver.
This talk is followed by an interview with Wrenna Robertson, editor of I'll Show You Mine, a photography book celebrating vulva diversity.
