I decided to talk to women about their vaginas, to do vagina interviews, which became vagina monologues ...At first women were reluctant to talk. They were a little shy. But once they got going, you couldn't stop them. Women secretly love to talk about their vaginas. They get very excited, mainly because no one's ever asked them before.' Eve Ensler A poignant and hilarious tour of the last frontier, the ultimate forbidden zone, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES is a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery. Hailed as the bible for a new generation of women, it has been performed in cities and colleges throughout the world, and has inspired a dynamic grassroots movement -- V-Day -- to stop violence against women.

The US Presidential Election is now in full swing. Particularly if you are a US citizen who happens to possess a vagina, you will want to avoid this crude, tasteless, completely unamusing campaign ad. Shame on you, Real Republican Real Women Of Real America!
Mostly I read this on a plane to irritate my boss at the time - a particularly flamboyant gay man, who spent the entire flight with his fingers in his ears, singing "LaLaLaLa, I'm not listening, I'm not listening..."
