Vulva Awareness and Appreciation with Jaclyn & Penny

Vulva Awareness and Appreciation with Jaclyn & Penny

National Vulva Awareness Day 2023

Why do we Have an Event for Vulvar Awareness and Appreciation

Did you know 8 out of 10 folks with vulvas do not know all the names of their anatomy or what part does what? Yes, we have a major lack of vulvar awareness out there.

Vulvar health is in trouble because of stigma and lack of awareness and education, and we want to turn that around!

April 21st is National Vulva Awareness Day!

National Vulva Awareness Day was created in 2022 by our dear friends and allies to the lichen sclerosus community, SweetSpot Labs, to bring awareness to a part of the body that is often overlooked and to break the stigma around the vulva.

This year, we at Lichen Sclerosus Support Network wanted to hold an event on this special day to raise awareness and cultivate some vulva appreciation and love.

In this video, Jaclyn from TLLC and LSSN gives an overview of vulvar anatomy (what each part is called, where it is located, what its function is, and how it can be affected by LS). For the appreciation piece, Penny, from Wellbeing by Penny, guides use through a gentle movement/yoga/meditation practice centered around self-love and compassion for our vulvas.

Edit: While you typically cannot see the vagina from the outside, someone in the community let me know that they can see their vagina and even their cervix. I therefore wanted to add this correction: while you typically may not be able to see your vagina from the outside, you may be able to if you are limber and get into the right position, grab a flashlight, and insert two fingers into the vagina and separate.
