Hot on the heels of the cervix photo essay comes this interview with Petra Collins on a t-shirt for American Apparel depicting a masturbating, menstruating, hairy, vagina.

Cervix in photos

I don’t know if I’d say it’s a beautiful cervix, but it’s certainly not ugly. I dunno, it looks like a cervix?
