F irst things first: the documentary Vaginas Channel 4 was not about vaginas — it was about vulvas. They were photographed up close and personal by the artist Laura Dodsworth with their owners invited to sit, look and talk about them afterwards as part of a project that follows on from similar ones she has done involving breasts and penises separately, for the avoidance of doubt. Presumably the powers that be thought calling it Vulvas would lead too many unsuspecting viewers to settle down in anticipation of a programme about the history of Swedish engineering. It was not. It did what it should have said on the tin. My mother was a gynaecologist for nearly 40 years and I now feel like the Queen Mother felt about the bombed-out East End after Buckingham Palace was hit; I can look her in the eye. My labiaversity is symptomatic of a world in which, as the various women who took part noted, its physical appearance and makeup is rarely discussed. And while we are taught endlessly about the blood, birth and pain it will bring to us, its potential for pleasure is only ever really noted in relation to others. That makes it sound like an angry programme.
