"Have you ever seen your vagina?"What a question to ask!Personally, I don't think it's anybody's business where this Baby Boomer Diva sticks her nose but apparently some women didn't mind answering the question.That question helped created Eve Ensler's book, "The Vagina Monologues."


This past Saturday night, my girlfriend and I went to see The Vagina Monologues performed onstage at North Carolina Central University.There were these young college girls portraying women who boldly expressed the memories and experiences with sexuality as it was related to Ms. Ensler.I had to blush a little when I heard these young girls, who could've been my daughters, refer to vaginas as "cunts" and "coochie snorchers." How could a vagina be compared to a village?And as someone who is in perimenopause, I am no longer interested in hearing about the flooding of the red sea.


But I sat and listened intently to the messages being delivered and I understood that this was more than just a play about women talking about vaginas.It was more about raising awareness of the sexual violence against women---not just here in the US---but all over the world.It was also a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and mystery.


As a result of watching the play, this baby boomer diva will never look at her vagina in the same way again.
