|Community description:||An empowering community geared towards education about vaginas, vulvas & sexual/reproductive health|
This is the Dreamwidth version of the popular LiveJournal community vaginapagina. It is not a mirror: content should not be duplicated between communities at this point. Enjoy!
[Last Update: September 2012]
( about )
|MISSION STATEMENT: Founded in 2001, VaginaPagina is an online community that offers a supportive, progressive, body- and sex-positive environment in which to discuss issues related to vulvovaginal, breast, sexual and reproductive health and wellness. It is a unique, empowerment-based safer space that is GLBTQQIA- and kink-friendly. Our goal is to build knowledge and combat misinformation by sharing personal experiences and reliable information from credible sources. We believe that by becoming active in VP, members are participating in a revolutionary and life-changing project.|
And hey, there really is no such thing as "TMI," so don't be shy!

RAINN.net: Rape crisis centers outside of the United States
Inside the U.S., the National Domestic Violence Hotline can be reached at 1-800-799-SAFE. You can call the U.S. National Sexual Assault Hotline, operated by RAINN, 24 hours a day at 1-800-656-HOPE, or you can search for your local rape crisis center.

|Fine Print: This community is meant to give people a way to network and get support, ideas and resources. It is not in any way meant to be substituted for medical advice/care. It is generally a good idea to see your doctor when anything abnormal occurs. We recognize that doctors don't always listen so well, that they're not always open to natural medicine, or that not everyone has access to medical care; that's why we're here. Please, PLEASE, seek medical attention for serious problems. See, for example, help finding free or discounted healthcare in your area (U.S. only). You can also locate/rate a health care professional, or check out the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association Referral Service. (It's a free, web-based referral service that provides information for those looking for LGBT-aware health care providers. You can also restrict your search to kink-aware providers and/or TS-/TG-aware providers.)|
