Laura Dodsworth has seen more genitals at close quarters than most.
Dodsworth is the photographer behind the three photo books on, respectively, tits, penises and now also vulvaer.
But it is not an erotic lurerprojekt for Dodsworth. It is a kønspoltisk, feminist project that is about showing diversity in a way perfektionsfetichistisk culture. She will make up with the shame as many of us have in relation to their own (and others') genitalia,
As in the first two books are in ‘Womanhood’ 100 persons who provide the sex to the spectacle. The participants tells also what their relationship with their vulva is. They talk about sex, menstruation, pain, childbirth, motherhood and menopause.
And Laura Dodsworth puts even svesken on the disk, and it has been a liberating experience, according to theguardian.cu.uk:
- I could not ask people to do something, I would not do. So I'm with in the book. And I can remember when I worked with my own photo on my Mac, that I thought: ‘Wow, things that happen, and cases there.’ I can remember that I thought that my episitiomi-ar (some women cut in the perineum during childbirth, ed.) so the very small print out. When I feel it, it feels great because I have fierce memories of a traumatic birth.
the Work on the book has been of great importance to Laura Dodsworth:
‘I feel freer, more in my ace, the more sexy and powerful than ever. And I hope that Womanhood will be able to do the same for other women. It is time that we take our womanhood back, on our terms and with our words,’ she writes on her website.

Several things got her to go in time with the book, for example, that female genital mutilation still takes place around the world, and that more and more women are reportedly voluntarily goes to the plastic surgeon to get a kønslæbereduktion.
Dodsworth will help women to embrace and love their genitals, by showing how different they are. She knows too well how difficult it is for a woman to see her own vulva in relation to how easy the man has to see his dick. As she writes in the book:
‘Let's be honest, it's hard to even see her vulva, with her legs spread awkwardly out in front of a small mirror, bum pressed up against a large mirror, or a selfie with the unflattering mobilkameralys.’
Dodsworth also suggests that it is a part of the body, which has long been underexposed, historically and scientifically, in relation to the clitoris, orgasms and sexual pleasure - and at the same time, there is a certain berøringsangst around vulvaen, as in the Uk, according to the photographer, demonstrated by the fact that there are historically few women who have had pap smear of the cervix to check for precancerous to cancer.

For Dodsworth's ‘Womanhood’ different than ‘Manhood,’ with many of the women had never seen their genitals so close. In the ‘Manhood’ showed the men to the women in a safe space, but in the ‘Womanhood’ blotter every woman for themselves.
- Some of the women shook, the other asked if they were normal.
As Laura Dodsworth writes on his website about the book;
‘No body parts have in the same way culturally and personally inspired so much love and hatred, fear and desire and the desecration and worship. Among the smooth Barbiedukker and netporno growing girls and women up with a very limited view on how they should look, although there in fact is a huge variation. ‘Womanhood’ stand out from the ideal vagina, and shows the gentle and not-airbrushede truth, so that we can understand and celebrate our diversity.’

Body and training 11 brave women: We set our dusk, as we will
at Home made three women last year vendespillet Pussy Memo with 66 pieces, 32 subjects and 16 women. Then told the creator Louise Sarrah Wolffsen the following to the Extra the Blade:
- the Dream is that the teachers in such school will use it to show the young something about the diversity. So the young women and men can see that the pussy may look very different. I've even been missing it, so the project has been a bit of a calling. Many women in my network and women who have heard of it, have expressed that they also have lacked the kind of.
Vendespillet costs 399 kr. and also comes as a web-based app. Not like a regular app, as it kind of rarely is allowed to come in the app stores.
Wolffsen says that the youngest woman is in the middle of the 20's and the oldest in the mid 70's.
Age is also an important parameter in relation to diversity, says Louise Sarrah Wolffsen, which explains that a part of the women could not recognize themselves, as they later were presented with the pictures.
And it is indeed in itself a good picture of how important the project is, says Wolffsen, which even appears in the game, where the women's abdomen is shot from below and from the front.
