Nerve.com's Gallery of Vulva PortraitsFrom the Photographer: "I took these photographs as abstract portraits of women's genitals to bring them back to a place of innocence and beauty. Too often we see female genitals being exploited and invaded, as if this was the only purpose for their existence. I also wanted to show them in a more organic, natural light. It was important to me to show how different all of them are—that every woman is different, and every [vulva] is kind of like a face." Update: Unfortunately, this gallery can now only be viewed by premium Nerve members.
The Y ProjectClassy photographs of vulvas. Take a look and see how different each of us truly is.
The-Clitoris.comA site about, well, the clitoris (and its anatomy, of course). All hail!
VP's Everyday Bodies ProjectAs a long time community supporter (and former member of the VP Team) Sasha became interested in finding a way to let people who post "Is my body normal?" questions know that they are indeed "normal" and beautiful. She tried to do an online search for pictures of vulvas and was surprised by the lack of available images (that weren't porno-riffic or part of a medical text that is). So she decided to ask the lovely ladies of VP to send her pictures of their cunts. And they did. And from there we branched out into breasts and a variety of other body parts. Take a look at the VP revolution in action!

Breasts: The Women's Perspective on an American ObsessionBreasts: The Women's Perspective on an American Obsession describes and explores national breast fetish, which is defined as a culturally constructed obsession that is deeply interwoven with beauty standards, breast-feeding practices, and sexuality. By tracing the complex history of this erotic fascination and discovering how it affects men's and women's sexuality and their relationships, this book will help women accept their breasts as they are and provide male readers with insight into how women think and feel about their bodies. Proving breasts have a venerable history, this book urges readers to see beyond the contemporary standards of visual perfection that surround this fetish.
Changing Bodies, Changing LivesA monumental, encyclopedic discussion of sexual and emotional change during the teen years. Recommended for grade 8 & up.
Cunt: A Declaration of IndependenceHey, a book about our favorite topic! “Cunt does for feminism what smoothies did for high-fiber diets—it reinvents the oft-indigestible into something sweet and delicious.”
—Bust Magazine
FemaliaNot all vulvas look the same and this book shows it all. "You will find these images some of the most beautiful you've ever seen, or be shocked by them. This book is a magic mirror letting you know exactly how you feel about female genitalia. It's a perfect coffee table book."
--Annie Sprinkle
Full Exposure : Opening Up to Sexual Creativity and Erotic Expression"I found in Full Exposure a wonderful, sex-positive volume, melding philosophy, apologetics, and personal anecdotes. I enjoy Susie Bright's casting the burden of proof onto the naysayers, requiring that the repressed and the frightened justify their censorious dogma. And when they try, she shoots them down, like beer cans lined up on the back fence. She does, after all, write about (a fantasy of) making love to Dan Quayle ... reading that was the most I'd ever appreciated the man--and this leads to one of her _dogmas_: 'Assume everybody is sexual.'" (reviewer from amazon.com)
How To Write A Dirty StoryPowell Books says: "Susie Bright is the first and reigning queen of contemporary erotica. In How to Write a Dirty Story she reveals her tricks of the trade and shows you how to heat up sex scenes in everything from traditional novels and romances to science fiction and humor. Easing the aspiring writer into the creative process, she tells you how to write the steamy plots and sensual characters that publishers and readers are looking for."
Nerve: Literate Smut"Nerve founders Rufus and Genevieve frame the texts and photos with their takes on the many sides of sex — from shame and habits to taboos, debauchery, and, of course, love. Featured writers include Norman Mailer, Sallie Tisdale, Rick Moody, Thom Jones, Quentin Crisp, Lucy Grealy, Robert Olen Butler, Lars Eighner, Lisa Carver and Dr. Joycelyn Elders."
Sex & Single Girls: Straight and Queer Women on Sexuality"Well-known writers and feminists address topics ranging from online sex to abortion, from bisexuality to interracial relationships, creating a complex portrait of women's sexual experiences, activities and preferences."
Taking Charge of your Fertility: The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control, Pregnancy Achievement, and Reproductive HealthThis comprehensive book explains in lucid, assured terms how to practice the fertility awareness method (FAM), a natural, scientifically proven but little-known form of birth control (which is not to be confused with the woefully ineffective "rhythm" method). Author Toni Weschler has been teaching fertility awareness for almost 20 years, and it's only just now gaining in popularity. As the book explains, by using simple fertility signs including peaks in morning body temperature and changes in cervical position and cervical mucus, it's possible to determine when ovulation is taking place. Fertility awareness is therefore useful for not only couples who are trying to conceive, but for those who are aiming to avoid pregnancy without the use of chemical contraceptives. (Amazon.com)
The Best in American EroticaPowell Books says: "In The Best American Erotica 2002, Jane Smiley illustrates the singular escapism found in the gentlest caress, Maggie Estep relates the surprising sexual happenings in a detox clinic, Francesca Lia Block explores the aquatic fantasies haunting a surfer, and Ernie Conrick introduces a tennis star and sex symbol who surrenders to an unusual coach. In these twenty-five stories you will also find cutting-edge work from other luminaries and from the Internet, where the next wave of erotica has matured into some of the most enticing writing around." Now in its ninth year of publication.
The Bust Guide to the New Girl OrderThis collection contains an engaging herstory of feminism, cheeky reviews of vibrators, essays on sex and the thinking girl, thoughts on that crappy beauty myth and more.

The Clitoral Truth: The Secret World at Your Fingertips"Sashaying boldly where others fear to tread, this manifesto on women's genital anatomy and sexual response includes discussions of the entrenched male-centered model of sexuality, an attempt to show women how to redefine their sexuality to emphasize full body pleasure, and advice on how to acquire a stronger sense of being independent sexual beings."
The ClitouristBUST says: "The Clitourist is a happy little gem of a book about that happy little gem in your nook. Clever, informative, sex-positive and queer-friendly, this book belongs in every girl's cliterature collection."
The Ethical Slut"Beyond the often unrealistic ideal of lifetime monogamy lies an uncharted jungle of delightful options - everything from committed multi-partner relationships to friendly sex, casual sex, group sex and more."
The New Good Vibrations Guide To SexTips and techniques from America's favorite sex toy store. We love this book for its non-racist, non-heterosexist, non-ageist, radical, accepting attitude toward sex. It's an indispensable manual/users guide/encyclopedia of sex. If you only buy one sex book, this is the one.

Yes Means Yes: Getting Explicit About HeterosexAuthor Kath Albury manages to get to the bottom of how the English-speaking world talks about women who have sex with men and like it. She explains why straight women's desire gets people's panties in a bunch, why money shots get us all hot and bothered, why little girls (and little boys, for that matter) want to play dress up in Mommy's stilettos, and why Pamela Anderson is a fearless gender bender (eh?).

Magazines and Zines
BitchFrom their mission: "Bitch seeks to be a fresh, revitalizing voice for feminism, one that welcomes complex arguments and refuses to ignore the contradictory and sometimes uncomfortable details that constitute the realities of women's lives."
Bust"A magazine for women with something to get off their chests." Full of relevant articles about women's health, sexuality and lives today.
Ms."Ms. is the pre-eminent feminist publication in the United States and the world." Often contains articles with fearless approaches to complicated issues pertaining to health and sex.
StankThe e-zine that has what BUST calls an "intoxicating blend of humor, rage, envelope-pushing and sisterhood." Maintained by former Sassy editrix Diane Renee (the only sister to hold that title), who says that "black women have perpetually been criticized for having too much mouth, too much opinion and way too much attitude." And that's a bad thing? Erotica, self-acceptance, and attitude -- that's what I'm talking about.
Vagina WorshipA zine about, well, vagina worship.
Music
Ani DiFranco"As original in style as she is earnest in her intent, DiFranco blends punk and folk sensibilities in her approach, while her upbeat guitar playing reveals a clear grasp of jazz, blues, and pop. Her striking lyrics carefully explore the intersection of the political and the personal; they helped win her an early loyal fan base of young women."
--UBL
Bikini Kill"Revolution Girl Style Now"
Bitch and AnimalThe Writers of the Pussy Manifesto. Sometimes folky and mellow, other times biting and sarcastic. Bob enthusiastically recommends their most recent album, Eternally Hard.
Hang on the BoxThe only all-girl punk band in China! The first group (along with Bieniu and other scenesters, dancers, and visual artists) to feminize Beijing bars, thus having earned quite a reputation. Paying little heed to the double standards that degrade women for the same sexual promiscuity that wins men admiration, they hit the streets in tight jeans and leather, pink and silver hair, flaunting homemade piercings and tattoos. They are uapologetically open about sexuality in their art and performance and their attitude is infectious. In their words, "Who gives a fuck if our music is good or bad? We have just as much a right to play music as boys do!"
Hell's Belles"Seattle favorites Hell's Belles play nothing but AC/DC songs, dead-on down to the note-for-note virtuoso guitar solos. The premise of a mostly-female band taking over the songs of the sex-crazed classic rockers is, of course, politically charged." Just wait til "Angus" starts stripping down to her underwear ...
-- Seattle Post Intelligencer
Jean GraeThe South African-born MC has appeared on countless records, but it was her feature on Mr. Len's "Taco Day" -- a powerful account of a sexually abused homecoming queen who goes straight Columbine on everyone in her path -- that led her to emergence from the underground. In her words: "They still want chicks with tits and ass out / My respect is worth more than your advance cash out."
KhiaEver seen a 5-alarm blaze? It flames high and ferocious, dwarfing everything in sight, but starts with slow methodical smoldering. That's Khia, the Philly-born MC whose recent hit "My Neck My Back" went to the top of the charts and encouraged women everywhere to talk about what they want and need sexually.

If you need me to say something, call me up, let me know, tell me what I need to write about and I'm'a sing it. I'm'a rap about it."

Tracy + The PlasticsBUST has this to say in their review of Olympia, WA-based Wynne Greenwood's (the mastermind behind Tracy + The Plastics) latest album: "[It] carries cacophonous lyrical explosions over fat keyboard bass leads and addictive electronic drumbeats. Bridging the gap between feminist video art and the burgeoning neo-New Wave music scene, this solo artist and her three personas (Tracy, Nikki and Cola) politicize the stage and provoke the audience with an intoxicating delirium of lo-fi video images and contageous songs. Tracy + The Plastics make talking to yourself a political act." (Winter 2002 Music Issue)
