The Metaphor That I Think About Probably Every Day

Well, here goes:

My very first gynecologist told me, “the vagina is a self-cleaning oven.”

I have never stopped thinking about this. I mean, I know what she was saying — that it takes care of itself and that’s why you shouldn’t fuck around with douches or whatever — but.

I find this metaphor to be entirely disgusting.

Because.

If the vagina is a self-cleaning oven.

Then what.

Is supposed.

To be.

Cooking.

In.

There.
