23rd-Jan-2018 08:20 pm - Free menstrual cups (pay for shipping
Broomstick & Margarita
Hi. I don't know if this post is allowed on vp and it seems your rules pages are down. What I want to say is that a feminist lingerie web shop is giving out free menstrual cups right now, you just have to pay for shipping:
A good opportunity for anyone wondering if menstrual cups would work for them, as they send two sizes in the package. :)

If this is allowed, please share on vp too. :)

It might be worth a warning to everyone (and a reminder that we still have http://vaginapagina.dreamwidth.org as an option) that we are now under Russian Law for what can be talked about, and that includes limitations on discussions of Read more...Collapse ).

A pinned post for VP might be a very good idea now.

Very rude and unhelpful comment on this post.


Thanks, Mods!

Advertising "escorts." -_-

I don't want escorts. I want someone to come over and do the cats' litterboxes, vacuum the basement, and organize my comics, manga, and anime collections.

28th-Mar-2015 07:00 pm - Seeking Member Feedback
Hi, Superstars!

As we mentioned here, as part of our hiatus process, we wanted to offer a venue for input from members. We did take the time to first sort things out internally (within the maintainer team) and are feeling optimistic about our progress (will provide more specifics when we re-open).

But we also want to ask you -- What do you need from the maintainer team to make VP a safe and accountable space for you? How can we work to make that happen more readily, effectively, and consistently?

Is anyone else having their comments screened in VP (perhaps because of the hiatus?), or is it just me?
15th-Mar-2015 05:31 pm - Announcement: VP on Hiatus
This is a duplicate post of an annoucement that was just posted to VP.

Hello Superstars,

I'm writing on behalf of the VP Team to let everyone know about the pretty big -- but temporary -- change mangofandango mentioned here.

At 8:00pm EDT on March 16, 2015 (that's about 24 hours from now), VP will temporarily become a moderated community and will not be accepting new entries. VP on LJ will remain closed through that same time on March 30, 2015. At that point, it'll be business as usual once again. Any entries submitted during our two-week LJ hiatus will be rejected (with a copy of this notice), and not posted.

We are taking this step to re-evaluate, re-assess and rejuvenate. The VP Team will be using this hiatus to discuss policy, to discuss focus, and to better equip ourselves to continue to make VP a safe and valuable space. In short, we're doing it because we care about VP.

Because we want our fabulous members to have a part in VP's "renovation," we encourage you to visit contact_vp to leave us your honest and helpful feedback. A post will be available for your helpful comments on Saturday, March 28. Be advised, however, that although we plan to keep an eye on CVP, we don't plan to respond to non-urgent situation until after VP on LJ re-opens. We also encourage you to use CVP in the meantime to contact us regarding any comments on current entries that need our attention.

We care deeply about our members, and want you to know that we're taking this step to help you. It might seem scary, but remember that not all VP resources will be out of your reach! You can always make use of the links on the VP on LJ sidebar (accessed through the community main page), VP on LJ's tagged posts, and our VP community on Dreamwidth.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and assistance, and we look forward to re-opening the community on March 30th!

¡Vulva la revolución!
For the VP Team

Edit 3/16 -- Just confirming that VP is now set to moderation -- and will be closed to new entries for the next 2 weeks.

I just wanted to let you know about the above post. The image is NSFW and when I asked her to put it behind a cut all the comments are screened. I don't know if she can see my comment or not but it really needs behind a cut. Thanks.

In the original comment, the commenter mentioned that if their MD says all is okay, that OP should be good. They also said, "Good luck! I'm jealous... wish I was having a good time to have a problem with! You go girl!"

I have experience with pelvic pain, including vaginal, and I wanted OP to know that MDs aren't always right, just because they're not trained in pelvic disorders and sexual pain. I also felt really dismissed by their comment on "having a good time to have a problem with." I let the commenter know that pelvic pain, including sexual pain, isn't ever a good time.

They responded defensively, saying their comment was for OP and that OPs pain is from having a new partner and trying new things. I don't really know if ya'll want to intervene yet, but I find it incredibly offensive that they think sexual pain is a good time just because someone has a new partner and is trying new things. It is absolutely not. It can be incredibly devastating, and it's really not okay they dismissed it in the first place and then dismissed it again when they were called out on it.

EDIT: more descriptive title.

don't look down

Someone posted a cautionary tale that I found offensive and harmful. There are a number of things wrong with it, IMO, but what jumped out at me was "protect myself from boys" and the doctor "looming" over the narrator, neither of which is particularly helpful.

(Edited after posting.)
