Calling a scrotum a penis is ridiculous so why do we call a vulva a vagina? On International Women’s day what do 10 year olds think about this gender inequality?

International Women's Day aims to accelerate gender equality. Sexuality information and education has a-lot of catching up to do in this area. ​We fail in equality when we teach masturbation and wet dreams for boys (pleasurable) versus mensuration for girls (taboo and dirty), we also incorrectly name body parts. In this video I give examples of why it is so important to name the vulva and not call it a vagina - which is an internal structure you can't see it on the outside.

The picture here shows some examples of what some students that I recently taught learnt after one of my sessions. 
 













 
 
 

Here is what a student said they had learnt after a sexuality education session:
 




"Today I learned about Puberty, it was disgusting bit it teached me a lot of things you need to know."
