The vagina is home to its fair share of bacteria, and one woman managed to convince hers to help her out. Cecilia Westbrook, M.D., Ph.D., wondered whether the bacteria in her vagina could be used to make yogurt, so she isolated a sample and produced a few batches. The results were successful, creating a tart, funky treat high in probiotics.
The Kung Fu Vagina
Kim Anami is the world’s leading proponent of “vaginal kung fu,” which she claims makes the pelvic floor stronger and increases the pleasure you get from sex. Anami uses a small jade egg inside her vagina, which she ties to a variety of objects from dumbbells to coconuts. Now she spreads the gospel of vaginal kung fu to other women, traveling the world teaching people how to do it. On her Instagram account, she uses the hashtag #thingsIliftwithmyvagina to chronicle her exploits.
The Wool Storing Vagina
If you ask artist Casey Jenkins what her vagina is good for, she’ll show you a scarf. During her 28-day performance of “Casting Off My Womb,” she knit it from skeins of wool stored in her punani. The artwork was designed to document the length of her menstrual cycle, and a video of Jenkins knitting went viral worldwide, to a wide spectrum of reactions.
The Magical 70-year-old Vagina
When you get to the ripe old age of 72, you’ve had a lot of time with your vagina. But for Vicky Leyton, her coot was the key to her living. Known as “Sticky Vicky,” Leyton performed six shows of vaginal magic every night to eager crowds of tourists. Leyton’s 30-minute act started with her pulling scarves and a bouquet of flowers out of her downstairs and just got wilder from there. In the course of her routine, Vicky blasted ping-pong balls into the audience, blew out torches with gusts of queef and brought the house down by pulling a glowing light bulb from her privates. Sadly, Vicky retired in 2016, but her daughter is carrying on the tradition.
The World’s Strongest Vagina
Yes, “vaginal weightlifting” is a real sport, and the world champion has a hoo-ha that can haul some serious poundage. After Russian woman Tatiata Kozhevnikova gave birth to her child, she was upset by the looseness downtown. Unlike millions of other women, Tatiata decided to do something about it. She embarked upon a mission to increase the strength of her vagina through weightlifting, and hauling increasingly heavy objects week after week using only her vaginal muscles. This dedication earned her a slot in the Guinness Book of World Records when she lifted a pair of 31-pound dumbbells with her lady-bits.
The Most Beautiful Vagina In The World
Brian Sloan, the inventor of the “Autoblow” sex toy (it does exactly what you think it does) is a man obsessed with sex parts, and when he wanted to create an artificial punani he decided to model it on the most beautiful one he could find. So he put out an open call for photographs, and hundreds of women from all around the world obliged. Sloan then let people vote on the most aesthetically pleasing. The winner, a 27-year-old British woman who goes by the pseudonym “Nell” was awarded $5,000 and flown to Berlin to have a mold of her parts made.
