Dd can do this on demand. Not that I demand she does it but she thinks its hysterical.

And it's not just a little fanjo parp. It's like a trumpet which just keeps going and going. She's trying to play tunes now. Dh thinks she will be able to make a career out of it. hmm

I've told her she'll knacker her pelvic floor.

I'm still shocked that the DD wasn't too mortified to share.

At that age they have basically the same vagina as a grown woman. Why has she no modesty?

All this 'sharing' we do these days will someday backfire.

I really don't think there is any need for that xylem8. I reiterate that midwives and offspring of midwives who will have no doubt grown up with graphic vagina talk and images at home do tend to be a lot less hung up on vaginas - or that may just be my house. Anyway. Viva has hidden the thread as has no desire to be drawn back in to it.

Who on earth would someone 'no doubt' grow up with graphic vagina talk and images just because their mother is a midwife?!?! Do you think people who have proctologist dads grow up with graphic images and talk about their anuses?! Do you think that people whose parents work in a medical lab just love talking about faeces all day?!

Being comfortable with your body and having a bit of modesty are two different things. We're a very happy, open family but if my DD was playing amusing tricks with her vagina, I'd tell her gently that it's a private part of her body and that it's not a very nice thing to do. I wouldn't engage in discussions with her about how well she can play with her vagina, or be comfortable with my husband doing the same, or laugh about it and describe her vagina, including the parts of her vagina, on an internet forum.

None of that is normal for midwives, and believe me - I know.

Sorry to double post but have started cracking up laughing at the idea that midwives and their families have 'graphic vagina talk and images at home'. Do you think they photograph each one they see and then show the images to their families later and talk about them in detail?

No but there is generally textbooks and whatever lying around plus general chat about the work day. Must just be my house.

"Gawd I saw this great big vagina at work today everyone"
"Really, a vagina? In your line of work?"
"Yeah a great big farty one"
"Was it like that huge picture of a vagina in the open textbook on the coffee table mum?"
"Yeah, a bit like that. Hang on, flip to the picture on page 26 - it's more like that one"
"Well, since we're looking at graphic images and having a graphic conversation about vaginas, guess what mine can do?"

hmm

hmm okay so in my book all parts of the body are body parts. They do different things but so the fuck what?

I think the concepts of modesty and shame are essentially interchangable when it comes to body parts.

People say things like 'I am not ashamed of my breasts, but I wouldn't show them in public' but if you substitute 'arms' or 'legs' for 'breasts' then it suddenly sounds weird and nonsensical...because it is, weird and nonsensical.

The concept of modesty is one of oppression. Men can show their nipples but women can't? Yeah...whatever.

You can talk about blowing air out of any hole you like...except a vagina. That is unseemly and undignified. Yeah...whatever.

No, it's unseemly and undignified talking about a 12 year old girl doing this and talking about ping pongs and her taking her talents to Thailand. That's the bit that's not on. Couldn't care less if it's adults talking about their ability to perform said stunt! smile

I was reading this yesterday and thought there was a cease fire? I can see both sides to this argument <precariously balances arse on fence>... i was a bit surprised by the OP but presumed it was because I came from a no-nudity and farting household! I don't think the OP or her DH were thinking of job opportunities in the sex industry, but the deleted ping pong comments were a bit bleugh.
I really can't see why the thread is still here though. It sounds like the OP has hidden it, and anyone laughing at the beginning is surely not laughing now. It's just a bit of a shitstorm, and I can't see anyone 'gaining' from keeping it? Please mumsnethq, put it out of its misery.

AvonCallingBarksdale Thu 27-Jun-13 18:50:07

Yes, we all rode off on our high horses, boxing gloves down and pelvic floors clenched into the sunset! Probably a good idea if we do so again and the thread just quietly pffffts...

I think it may have been me who inadvertently ignited it all again. Apologies - I came to the thread late and didn't read all the way to the end.
