About Us

Yes, there's actually a Vagina Museum. Located in London's Camden Market, the Vagina Museum is the world’s first bricks and mortar museum dedicated to vaginas, vulvas, and gynecological anatomy. We have a vision of a world where no one is ashamed of their bodies, everyone has bodily autonomy, and all of humanity works together to build a society that is free and equal. This is our podcast. Spoiler alert, it's about vaginas. In the first season of our podcast, you'll get six episodes that take you deep into the past and present of the vagina. Ever hear of yoni steaming? We investigated its history. Like saying the word cunt? We’ve got a whole episode about it. Ever wondered if there were any transgender saints from the medieval ages? We’ve got the story. Merkins? Check. Placenta? Check. Desperate to know the real story of the vibrator’s invention? We’ve got you. So subscribe to this channel, tell all your friends the good news, and stay tuned for The Vagina Museum Podcast, coming this winter. If you can’t wait that long for incredible vagina content, follow us on social media and visit the museum website, vaginamuseum.co.uk to learn more, get involved as a member, and support our work.

Hair and Back Again: A Pube’s Tale

EPeople have really strong feelings about “hair down there.” You could say it’s a “prickly” subject. But the way we talk about our pubic hair speaks volumes. In this episode, we part the bush of history to explore pubic hair preferences past and present. Dr. Kate Lister gives us a history lesson on 18th century pubic hair wigs, the founders of FUR talk body-hair-agnostic beauty, and illustrator Hilde Atalanta shares insights from The Vulva Gallery.

Yoni Steaming: An Exposé

EGwyneth Paltrow is in the news again promoting scientifically dubious treatments for your vag. One practice that Goop has popularized is vaginal steaming. In this episode, we find out the history of V-steam and whether or not it’s actually good for you (Spoiler alert: It’s not! Don’t steam your vag!). OB/GYN Dr. Jen Gunter joins us to explain why your vulva doesn’t need a steam cleaning, and Lizzie Marx educates us on steaming’s weird Medieval ancestor, womb fumigation.

EFanny, minge, vajayjay, pussy, down there, yoni...There are hundreds, if not thousands, of terms in the English language for vaginas. Most of them are sexist and rather unhelpful. But none is as taboo as “c*nt.” What’s up with that? What did c*nt ever do to you? In this episode, we answer those burning questions with the help of Fiona Sterling, bona fide Scottish person, and Professor Emma L.E. Reese, AKA Prof Vag.
