F'd Ad Fridays: The Big Coloring Book of Vaginas

Wow, Mommy Blogs are getting pretty cool.

This item showed up in Cafe Mom's The Stir:


From the blog:

"The Big Coloring Book of Vaginas is definitely (definitely!) not a kids' book. But it's a book I would like to "share" with my daughter in some way. Now, at 5, I would never let her actually near this book since it's basically porn (the writer also has a Big Coloring Books of Co*ks as well and that one is definitely grown-up), but I love the concept.  
The vagina book isn't about masturbation for men (unless you want it to be) and is much more about body empowerment. This is a lesson I want for my kids and for my daughter in particular. 
The book encourages women to commune with their vagina, which sounds so silly to say (and what does it even mean?). But if you have ever been a mom to a boy baby (and I have for almost four years now), then you know that boys start "communing" with their penises from a young age. 
We've had to actively train our son not to pull down his pants all the time and share his favorite thing in the world with the whole world. It makes us laugh how proud he is of his nether regions and most of the boy moms I know say their sons are the same. "Penis pride" is a real thing, people. 
Girls, on the other hand, have no equivalent. Maybe it's because all of our workings are more on the inside, but my daughter doesn't run around feeling so excited about herself in the way my son does. I wish she did."
Okay, Sasha Brown-Worsham. You are cool in my book. I should point out, however, that my book would use the word "vulva". So much nicer. And accurate.

  1. Jesus, I thought I'd heard it all over my 60 years! Clouring books of cocks and vaginas?!
    Why don't you just let your children BE CHILDREN? I'm not a prude, but there always seems to be a desire for kids to grow up really quickly these days, especially in the States.
    You're so anal retentive. Hey wait a minute, there's an idea for a colouring book: 'The colouring book of Anuses'?
