World’s First Museum Dedicated Entirely To ‘Vaginas’ Set To Open In The UK

Published

The world’s first museum dedicated entirely to vaginas is set to open in the UK.

The London-based Vagina Museum will open its doors for the first time on November 16 following a £50,000 crowdfunding campaign. The museum aims to educate and raise awareness of vaginal and vulval health and fight stigmas.

Its founder describes it as “the world’s first bricks and mortar museum dedicated to gynecological anatomy.” The museum will feature art exhibitions, plays, workshops and comedy nights all centered around vaginas.

Director Florence Schechter decided to set it up in 2017 after discovering Iceland’s Phallological Museum, which houses the world’s largest display of penises, had no equivalent for vulvas and vaginas.

She said the aim of the museum is to “erase the stigma around the body and gynecological anatomy” for everyone, regardless of their race, sex or gender. She said the museum, which is, in essence, a cultural center, will run child-friendly programs for families and schools.

It will also offer an outreach program to ensure children feel comfortable talking about female genitals from an early age.

“When they’re ashamed of their bodies, it becomes really difficult for them to talk about things,” she said. “It’s about de-stigmatizing this part of the body and being honest about what it does.”

Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, has revealed he is considering returning to the Super Eagles over one year since his retirement.

Ighalo, announced his retirement from international duty with Nigeria after his five-star performance at the Africa cup of nations.

He said having to travel the distance between China where he played for Shanghai Shenhua to Nigeria for national duty was affecting him so he had to retire to allow the young ones take over.

Ighalo moved to England in January, joining Manchester United on loan and
recently extended his loan deal with the Old Trafford outfit until January 2021.

Since his retirement, Victor Osimhen has been leading the Super Eagles attack with the forward scoring three goals during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games against the Republic of Benin and Lesotho.

Ighalo has now revealed that he has not given up on returning to the Super Eagles team.

“I am still in contact with Gernot Rohr and Amaju Pinnick, and they congratulated me on my loan deal,” Ighalo told Brila FM.

“I am still thinking about returning to the national team, but right now I want to concentrate on my club career.

“I left the national team because of the distance between Nigeria and China, but now that I am in Manchester and just like life and in my career, you never can tell.”
