Naming that sweet gap at the top of a woman’s thighs took us on a longish historical journey. Why do medical people call the outer genitals, especially of women, by a Latin word that means “shameful”?
The answer is that due to various historical accidents, the oldest universities of Europe were founded and controlled by men who didn’t like women, or their genitals, very much. And that’s where the study of anatomy resumed, after a hiatus of over 1,000 years.
But this post is purely about celebration. Isn’t the inter-gracile sub-pudendal fossa pretty?
It looks especially good on a girl who’s subject to discipline. The mix of disciplinary marks, and the softness and intimacy of that gap, is beautiful and inspiring.
