The How To be Sound podcast.

Host Rosemary McCabe writes:

Lynn Enright’s first book, Vagina: A Re-Education, has just been published – she sat down with me to talk about why we need to talk about our vaginas more, the importance of knowing the right words for the right bits and why we still prioritise male pleasure in heterosexual sex. Plus: what her dad thought about her VAGINA tote bag….

‘Fannypack’ surely?


How To be Sound


The actual cover of an actual book you can actually buy on Amazon. To wit:

In Carlton Mellick III’s fourteenth bizarro novel, The Haunted Vagina, the reader is presented with another Mellickian mind-bending concept–what if your girlfriend’s vagina was a gateway to another world? We are introduced to Steve and his girlfriend Stacy, whose “haunted” vagina is a problem for their sex life. When a skeleton-like creature emerges from Stacy’s vagina, the two decide to explore what may be inside of her.


Speaking in the Michigan House Of Representatives on Wednesday against a new regulatory bill on abortion and arguing that her Jewish faith allowed for therapeutic abortion when the mother’s life is in danger, Rep Lisa Brown said:

“I have not asked you to adopt and adhere to my religious beliefs. Why are you asking me to adopt yours?” she said.

But what came next is what got her in trouble: “And finally, Mr. Speaker, I’m flattered that you’re all so interested my vagina, but ‘no’ means ‘no.'”

Yesterday the Detroit News reported:

“‘What she said was offensive,” said Rep. Mike Callton, R-Nashville. ‘It was so offensive, I don’t even want to say it in front of women. I would not say that in mixed company.’
“Majority Floor Leader Jim Stamas, R-Midland, determined Brown’s comments violated the decorum of the House, said Ari Adler, spokesman for the Republican majority.”

Brown has since defended her use of the word “vagina,” saying it is the “anatomically medically correct term.”
