Oh Kickstarter, how you never cease to amuse us

A Kickstarter campaign is currently underway for 'Gay Men Draw Vaginas' - a proposed coffee table book chocked full of full-color drawings of vaginas as conceptualized by gay men. 

For the past three years, Keith Wilson and Shannon O'Malley have been collecting vag drawings - scary ones, humorous ones, abstract ones. The drawings were then arranged into thematic chapters for the book, such as "Monsters," "80s Vag," and "Mysteries."

Check out the (NSFW-ish) video for the campaign, AFTER THE JUMP...

The duo recently spoke with The Huffington Post to share where the inspiration for the project came from:

Screen Shot 2014-08-10 at 9.00.53 AMKeith Wilson: Three years ago, we were at a restaurant with a bunch of other homos and the topic of vaginas came up. After a few unenlightened comments came out of the mouths of the gay men, Shannon asked me to draw a vagina on the table with a crayon. After I did, everyone at our table gawked at it, critiqued it. It started a totally vaginal conversation in a restaurant full of children and families -- fun stuff. Shannon asked my boyfriend, who was also at the table, to draw one. When he did, everyone wanted to scrutinize it and compare it to the other shitty vagina I'd made. The night was filled with vag chat.

The campaign has already raised over $43,000 of its initial goal of $37,000 and still has 18 days to go. Check it out HERE.

What's your concept of what a vagina looks like?

  1. This is awesome! One of those things that I wish I'd thought of. Although if I was going to draw a vag I'd have to quickly watch some straight porn for a few rough outline ideas. I mean, I know it's vertical and the clit's at the top. I guess if I made it hairy enough the details wouldn't show anyway.

  2. This seems offensive. It seems misogynistic. The vagina as monster. I don't think I'd like a book of lesbians drawing penises either.

  3. I can't say I have any recent practical experience on this, but surely what we're seeing here is the vulva, specifically its labia. The vagina is inside, and I think not visible without spreading the labia apart.

  4. Will, the vagina-as-monster was a staple of Christian theology for centuries. Taking that, and making it the Cootchie Monster is hysterical, subversive, and ANTI-misogynistic.

  5. It won't sell with that title. Needs a snappy gay title.

  7. These are not vaginas, these are vulvas. Keith and Shannon need an anatomy lesson.
