Juicy Words...

Dear Goddesses,

So - I have to share a funny story that I think is PERFECT for our week on sexuality...

I've started teaching these English classes here and grammar has NEVER been my favorite, and the book can get boring, especially for these one on one classes that I'm teaching. So I grabbed this baggie of juicy words that I had made for work with my women's group and my altered book project and I have my students (they're all in their 40's and 50's) pick a juicy word and then give a little impromptu speech about themselves using the word. I play along as well and usually go first to model a speech. So today, Eduardo and I pick our words and I see his eyes perk up and giggle. I figured he got stuffed animals or maybe something girly. So I give my speech on "voice" and it's his turn. His cheeks get bright red and he says that he knows what the word means, but he doesn't know how to use it in a speech about himself. You'll never guess what word he chose...


Oh my gosh, I just about died. Needless to say I let him pick another word!

So, onward to the weekly challenge - and I have a PERFECT creative project...

Patty's Challenge: Taking a cue from the words chosen tonight from myself and my new best pal Eduardo - we are going to give VOICE to VAGINA!

Create your own vagina monologue. What kind of voice would your vagina have? What would your vagina say to the world?? Write it, perform it (share it if you dare!) And for those of you without a vagina - write an homage to one (it can be the one you came from, the one you are hopefully keeping satisfied or the in general vagina).

Have fun!

Love to you,

I like the stories you are telling. It makes me feel more connected.

The whole vagina monologue thing makes me uncomfortable. I'm not sure if that means I shouldn't tackle it.

Hm. I'll get back to you on that.
