After a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign raising over $20,000 USD a team of women, trans and non-binary folks in Mexico City are getting started building a free, bilingual, online encyclopedia of the vagina. Welcome Pussypedia.
The site's founders Maria Conejoe and Zoe Mendelson identified a lack of body and sex positive spaces online for discussion about the vagina and the near impossible challenge of wading through the misinformation about female sexuality online to get answers. Their vision for the site includes an interactive 3D model of the Vagina, original articles with vetted sexual health information on a full spectrum of topics like menstruation, infections, sex and masturbation, use of contraceptives, transmasculin and transfeminine vaginal health, abortion, menopause and much more. It will also include a set of resources directing visitors to other sites across the web that do offer good, relevant and accurate sexual health information.
This project is a welcome addition to science and technology space that has been noticeably absent in solving for women's bodies. If you're interested in getting involved, visit pussypedia.net to contribute to the project and watch it come together. We can't wait.
