A Word Game, Played in the Blog Comments (or: More Vagina Talk)

Someone recently ended up at my blog via a search for "words to describe the vagina." So, gentle readers, I issue a challenge. Please post words you would use to describe the vagina in the comments. These can be as serious or silly as you want. I'll update the post with the list. Here's a start:
  • stretchy
  • versatile
  • internal
  • mysterious
  • self-cleaning (from Pam)

    Now it's your turn! Your "words" can be more elaborate that single word entries if you prefer.

    Also, if you happen to be in New York City this June 12-27, the V-Day folks (who organize lots of vagina talk each year through Vagina Monologues performances) bring you "Until the Violence Stops: NYC." According to the site, this event "is a festival of theater, spoken word, performance and community events created to bring the issue of violence against women and girls front and center in the culture and the community. Featuring performances by Jane Fonda, Salma Hayek, Kerry Washington, Rosario Dawson, Tina Fey, Marlo Thomas, Diane Lane, Suheir Hammad, Sarah Jones, Phylicia Rashad (I love her), Isabella Rossellini, Marian Seldes, Gloria Steinem, Idina Menzel, and more. Authors contributing original works written exclusively for the festival include Edward Albee, Tariq Ali, Maya Angelou, Edwidge Danticat, Anna Deavere Smith, Ariel Dorfman, Michael Eric Dyson, Dave Eggers, Nicholas Kristof, Azar Nafisi, Paula Vogel, Alice Walker, Nobel prize winner Jody Williams, Howard Zinn, and more."

    The "Marquee Events" for this festival include:
  • Women and War (Studio 54, Monday, June 12 7:00pm)
  • Monologues From the World (Hammerstein Ballroom, Monday, June 19 8:00pm)
  • Words From Prison (working title) (Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, Wednesday, June 21 8:00pm)
  • It’s Hard Out Here For A Girl/Brooklyn Represents: Language and Sound (Brooklyn Museum, June 25 7:00pm)

    Of course you'll have to include "self-cleaning".
