Survey Shows Half Of Young British Women Can't Locate Their Vaginas On A Diagram

In honor of Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month, British charity The Eve Appeal conducted a study, surveying 1,000 women between the ages of 16 and 75 about their vaginas.

Apparently, of the women between the ages of 26 and 35, only about half could locate the vagina on a drawing of a woman’s reproductive organ system.

A third of the women aged 16 to 35 admitted to avoiding the gynecologist at all costs out of embarrassment.

Luckily, all of the women aged 66 through 75 could label the vagina and all of the female reproductive organs without a problem, and did not report the same healthcare avoidance practices.

The survey also found that the women surveyed tended to shy away from the word “vagina,” preferring slang terms or roundabout references like “lady parts” instead.

Ladies, come on. It’s 2014.

If you don’t know what’s going on down there, get a mirror and figure it out because it's your body and your business.

The easiest way to have the great sex you deserve is to know your body inside and out; there's nothing embarrassing about your biology.

The Eve Appeal will be using the hashtag #vaginadialogues on Twitter throughout the month of September to get women talking more openly about their bodies without any shame.

Join in to help support the movement, and if you can, donate to The Eve Appeal to help fund gynecological cancer research and treatment.
