The Heart Vulva

Betty sketched these vulvas for the release of her international best seller Sex for One.

Back in the 70's, during the Genital Show & Tell ritual in her Bodysex workshops, Betty started identifying the "style" of each vulva using architectural styles as a reference.  Here they are: Classical, Gothic, Modern, Renaissance, Baroque, and the Heart.

Scarleteen and Planned Parenthood have reproduced these images for their educational content.  Knowing that there is a range of vulva types has healed millions of women and men.

Hey a9k,
Can't see what the problem with number 2 is, if you can do this, then so it be..and it looks to me like it's fun to play with..
beauty isn't to be average, but to present what you nature/mom/god (choose one that fits you;))
gave you in a tastefull and confident way...oh and i like it shaved xD
No but really I haven't seen a disgusting Vulva so far...if there is an infection or something it may get ugly, but I despite that every kind of female genital appeares erotic to me..well but after all I'm just a man..
(oh and I don't believe andrew meant to hurt anyone, I want to believe he's just curious;))

best wishes,
Timo

Thank you for these sketches.

Thank you for these sketches. I was worried that my lady parts were NOT normal, but now I can relax and be less self conscious about my body. Thank you.

Betty's highly skilled drawings of vulvas (and penises too) are a great resource for showing us that ALL genitals are fine just as they are, and nothing to worry about or to be ashamed of. I didn't know that her drawings were so widely distributed---that's great. You've eliminated a lot of misery through showing us how many ways there are to be perfectly normal, healthy, and acceptable.

Masturbation
under observation
needs no invitation
foreplay scintillation
communication
abstination.

No hygienic contamination
misogynonistic intimidation
lamentaion.

Needs clitoral manipulation
solipsistic invention
orgasm's extension
labial introspection

NOT TO MENTION:
over population
infectious libation
fucking in moderation.

my intention:
Masturbation!

Thank you for your drawings of vulvas. I have always thought mine were not normal, I had been exposed to porn in childhood and have been self consious because my inner lips were long and porn stars were "perfect" and small. Your site has really helped me see that I am normal.
