frequently asked questions
WHY DID YOU MAKE A VULVA PUPPET?
Back in the day of it's creation, (May 1992) I needed to talk about sex without the shame, and I discovered many many people had no accurate information about female anatomy! I wanted to provide an innovative, lasting and most of all POSITIVE impression. So after several months of trying various materials and patterns, I took needle to thread. Viola!
WHOSE IT FOR?
EVERYONE. Couldn't we all use a little empowerment, education, honor and /or healing? Just think about the shame, ignorance, Porn, harm and damage there is today around women/girls and sex.
WHY IS IT CALLED "WONDROUS"?
Well, because it's where we all come from. How's that?
I visually elevate the Vulva Puppet using the Colors of Royalty. I wanted to be sure she was tactile and soft, inviting touch (WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE TOUCHING!). And finally...SHE NEEDED TO HAVE A VOICE!
ANY VOICE, ANY LANGUAGE. So she had to be a puppet. THAT'S THE MOMENT SHE BECAME WONDROUS!
HOW DO I USE A VULVA PUPPET?
Just slip your fingers in the back and feel for the openings between the inner and outer labia. TADA!! YOU'RE A PUPPETEER!
THINGS I PONDER while I'm sewing
- WILL PORTLANDIA EVER MAKE A SEQUEL TO THE VAGINA PILLOW EPISODE? They keep making promises and I'm really hoping they'll keep. ( I wished they had given me a credit and called it by it's true name, The Wondrous Vulva Puppet. Oh yes, and paid me.
- Do some people really have to steal or copy my work? I've been wondering this for years. If you have a theory, please let me know.
