I NEED YOUR HELP
I need photos of real vulvas
I have created a vulva booklet that gives all the vulva information I know and all the information that I think it's crucial we all know about the vulva. I don't usually blow my own trumpet but....guys, it's pretty good.
But I need photos of lots of vulvas in it to help show people that vulvas come in so many shapes, sizes and colours. That they can be hairy, shaved, asymmetric, wrinkly, big, small, dark, light.
That's where you come in.
I need photos from you lovely lot to use in the booklet. And you have no idea how much they will help others.
WILL I GET PAID?
No. I will be selling the booklet as a downloadable PDF but for very little money. This is not a profit making project, but something that I think reeeeally needs to exist. Any profit from the booklet goes into more time and energy spent on This is a Vulva. And hopefully getting the booklet into schools....
You will, of course, have a free copy of the booklet, as a small appreciation of my thanks!
WILL IT BE ANONYMOUS?
Yes, 100%. No names will be involved and all that will be seen in the photo is the vulva. No other body parts and nothing that could otherwise identify you. I won't even save the photos with your name on my laptop.
ARE THERE ANY RULES?
Yes, you must be over 18 and the photo must be of your body.
WHY SHOULD I HELP?
Studies have shown that when people are shown photos of a variety of vulvas, they are less likely to feel like their vulva is abnormal and will therefore feel happy and not choose to have labiaplasty. Imagine the power your vulva has in helping others not feel abnormal!
OKAY I'M IN, HOW DO I TAKE THE PHOTO?
Hurray! Please do nothing different to your vulva - if it's hairy, leave it hairy, if you have a tampon in, leave the string visible.
Take the photo in daylight and make sure it is clear and not blurry. Make sure no other identifying features are in the photo, for example your face. Please don't crop it, as I will be cropping it as needed for the booklet. The photo will be like the vulva above (which is mine!).
WHERE DO I SEND IT?
Please send the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
I will then send you a consent form to fill out. Without the consent form, I can't use your photo and will delete it if I don't hear back from you.
