  • Let's, shall we?

  • Alright.

  • Chile's thrice.

  • Yeah, All right.

  • The moment of truth.

  • What did everyone think?

  • Oh, come on.

  • I know that the tendency is to back away from anything that makes us uncomfortable.

  • But this book to play, really, it challenges us to look at our own womanhood, you know, to examine the feminine experience, body images or sex clip Hering.

  • You know, it's not usually like this.

  • Last month we read how Stella got her groove back.

  • You know what I think we should do?

  • Hey, hey, hey, hey, listen, I think that we should all go around the circle and each answer one of the questions that this book posits.

  • What do we think?

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • If your vagina could speak, what would it say?

  • My would love more wine a lot more?

  • No, I've already had my four ounces.

  • Unfortunately.

  • Well, Elena, since you are our illustrious host, why don't we start with?

  • You were joking.

  • No, I'm really I'm serious.

  • I want to know.

  • I'm curious to know what you think of the book.

  • Well, I thought play was funny in certain parts, but I also found it a little bit grumpy.

  • Rampy.

  • Well, What about the Bosnian rape victims?

  • Well, not that part, obviously.

  • You know, I think that we should read that one out loud, because if you haven't read the book Oh, no, no, no.

  • That traumatized me.

  • Which is why I get it from Memoirs of a Geisha.

  • Less trauma and controversy.

  • But what's wrong with a little controversy if it elevates the conversation?

  • I mean, isn't at the point of even having a book club?

  • I'm sorry, but the term coochie scorchers isn't particularly elevating in my mind.

  • I was surprised with all the mention of you know, what's vaginas?

  • That there was very little discussion about motherhood.

  • Okay, there was that amazing piece at the end about childbirth.

  • Well, there was that their one, but out of how many?

  • 20.

  • Well, not everyone with the vagina wants to be a mother.

  • Well, a lot of us do, and we all came out of one.

  • And it's a big event for, you know, and and the main reason we have a you know, um, well, I haven't had kids.

  • So does that render my vagina irrelevant?

  • I mean, what about Linda, for that matter?

  • We're not talking about Linda's experience.

  • I think that's a little personal.

  • What are you talking about, then?

  • What are you saying?

  • That my vagina is just worthless than your vagina?

  • You're getting very upset.

  • I think Alina's touching on something that speaks to the heart of the peace.

  • I mean, I I had the same thought when I read it.

  • Actually, that big events happen all the time to vaginas.

  • But we, as a society have a deep discomfort calling them by name, let alone regarding them with respect or actually seeing them.

  • Yeah, I don't think that's what Elena was saying at all.

  • I do, I think, Elena.

  • And please correct me at high for hours.

  • But I think Elena is talking about vaginas as a metaphor for our own discomfort with the parts of us that make us most uniquely and primarily who we are.

  • Have you really looked at your own mhm or has anyone here?

  • I think that that is Elaina's point.

  • How can we see ourselves when we're afraid to look at who we really are?

  • This is Mia, Everyone.

  • She's new to shake her.

  • Yeah.

  • Really?

  • Inside.

  • Mhm.

  • Thanks.

  • Yeah.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm.

  • Mhm.

Let's, shall we?
