There’s a whole lot wrong with the education system in the U.S. and it’s been on a downward spiral for quite some time.  We’ve now reached an all time low.  You may be shocked to learn that we do not educate our vaginas!  It turns out our hoohaws are so ignorant I wouldn’t be surprised to find one of them as a Tea Party Presidential hopeful.   (I’m pretty sure the same could be said for our penises.)  In France they have educated vaginas!  C’mon Americans, you know how most of you feel about the French.  Do you really want their vaginas to  be smarter than ours?  Do you want to watch a game show titled, Are you Smarter than a French Vagina?  We need to get on the ball here and make education a priority, even down there.

This is a kind of physical therapy designed to retrain the muscles of the pelvic floor, including the vagina, and is one of the cornerstones of French postnatal care. Two months after our daughter was born, I summoned the courage to teach my vagina some new tricks.  read more
