The Great Wall of Vagina: Changing female body perception through art

British artist James McCartney spent five years plaster casting 400 women’s vulvas for his sculpture The Great Wall of Vagina. The project is an exploration of women’s relationships with their genitals.

James came up with the idea while he was working on a different sculpture for a sex museum. He discovered that many women have anxiety about the appearance of their genitals, incorrectly believing they are ugly or abnormal. “It appalled me that our society has created yet one more way to make women feel bad about themselves” he said. He decided to do something about it – so he created art that dispels misconceptions about what women look like “down there.”

The women who volunteered to participate ranged in age from 18 to 76. There is great variety in the vulvas, as you would expect given there are 400 of them. One has multiple piercings, two are from identical twins, there are mother and daughter castings and transgendered men and women. There are even casts from a woman pre and post natal, and another pre and post labiaplasty. 

The sculptures are fascinating to look at and people can view them without feeling shame or discomfort because the images are not pornographic. They allow women (and men) the opportunity to see the immense diversity in female genitalia. Each one is completely different and completely normal.

Check out the videos below to learn more about James and The Great Wall of Vagina (which should probably be called The Great Wall of Vulva, since the vagina is your birth canal, while the vulva is your sex organ. But I’ll forgive James that grammatical mishap, because his project is awesome!).

  5. It feels different at first to look at this sculpture, certainly something generally people are not used to, in terms of what we generally think of as a subject for an artistic work. I guess because even in nude paintings for example, often the "private parts" are kind of hidden. Bravo - you brought something (see, even I am not saying "vagina" or "vulva" freely) out into the bright daylight for all to see, wonder at, smile a little bit behind their hands at, and marvel at your skill as an artist!

  11. Women Lie : Size DOES Matter

    And if you've ever taken a girl home, gotten hot and heavy and then felt embarrassment and PANIC when you take off your pants and see the look of DISAPPOINTMENT on her face, you need to go check this out right now . . .

    ===> Don't Disapoint Her With Your Little Guy <=====

    I'll tell you right now (and I've got proof), that anyone who tells you "size doesn't matter to women" is flat out lying to your face and trying to make you feel better . . .

    Heck, just recently I asked a focus group of women via an anonymous online survey if size matters, and again and again they said "Oh my god, I HATE IT when it's SMALL."

    For a long time I didn't know what to tell the guys who'd write in to me and ask how to get "bigger."

    I'd say something lame like "Women actually like guys who are smaller . . . you just have to get good with your hands."

    Then I found "THE BIBLE of Penis Enlargement" by this guy named John Collins . . .

    ===> They HATE It When It's Small <=====

    What's crazy about this is that John has ACTUAL VIDEO PROOF that his stuff works . . .

    He's got a literal mountain of testimonials from customers not just SAYING that they added 3 or even FOUR inches . . .

    But actual VIDEOS that can't be faked.

    I was 100% skeptical until I saw these vids, so even if you think it's "impossible" to get bigger (and there's no pills or suction devices or any of that crap) go check out the overwhelming proof on John's site.

    ===> Women Lie : Size DOES Matter <=====

    Best,

    P.S. There's absolutely nothing in the world that will make you smile as wide as pulling down your pants and seeing a look of AWE and ANTICIPATION on a woman's face. The first time you hear her say "It might be too big" in a soft, excited voice, you're going to feel a thrill through your spine like you just snorted 3 lines of cocaine.

    If you aren't at least 7 inches you owe it to yourself (and to the women in your life) to check this out.

    ===> Proof Of REAL Growth <=====
