Toothed vaginas

Interesting, the feminist blog Jezebel and the online news magazine Alternet both published an article which mentions Vagina Dentata and links to our website! It lists crazy myths about female biology.

“Various folk legends around the world have carried the idea of the toothed vagina (Latin: vagina dentata ). The sharp-toothed orifice hiding in a woman’s nether regions surprises visitors with bites than can cause injury or castration. The fantasy is thought to stem from profound fears of the female as seductress or monster, particularly her bestial nature. A punk metal band from Belgium has taken the Latin term as its name.”
