Infertility Education through Cartoon Vids.

January 6, 2011 at 11:16 am (Gender, Culture and Female Sexuality., When you become a "we" : Information for couples coping with fertility issues.)

One of the lovely ladies at askaboutmrkh brought this series of cartoon videos to our attention. I think it is a fun way to look at infertility and though it is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, we can all come away with something. Here is the first one!

The premiere of the MTV True Life Episode entitled “I can’t have sex” was last night. Because I live in Canada, I’m not able to get access to the link. So for those of you who live in the States, in case you missed the episode, here is the link:

An interesting historical perspective.

December 6, 2010 at 11:58 pm (Dilation therapy., Gender, Culture and Female Sexuality.)

I had a really interesting email from a reader who pointed me to this cartoon. The source of this cartoon described: the main joke [ which] was that it was not expected or approved behavior at the time for women to have their legs widely spread apart in public for any reason. In other words, the sailor is commenting on her manner of riding, rather than the direction she is going; and the pun on the place name “Stretchit” with “to stretch it”, implying that riding in such a way would stretch the woman’s vagina.

In case you cannot see it clearly, the woman is saying: “Pray is this the way to stretchit?” to which the sailor says: “Shiver my top-sails, my Lass, if I know a better way.”

No, we are not intersex but we may experience ignorance from others.

April 22, 2010 at 11:29 am (Gender, Culture and Female Sexuality.)

This article is interesting in the sense that it talks about how conditions of “atypical genitalia” are regarded. MRKH is cited only in passing to discuss the effect of support on those with congenital anomalies. I have included this article only to broaden your horizons. Please keep this in mind. (Plus, one of the researchers, Liao, has done quite a bit of research on MRKH women).
