The vagina may be nature’s pocket, but it’s not really the best storage space for loose coins, receipts, and spare tampons.
So we’re very pleased to discover that one intrepid etsy-er is taking the concept of using the vagina as a handy purse, but making it safe for your vaginal health.
Behold the Vachina.
Created by Bec, the designer behind Not Made In China, the Vachina is a small purse for coins, tampons, and any other small miscellaneous items. It also happens to be designed to look like a vagina.
Just like real vaginas, Vachinas are diverse in skin-tone and hair design, with three color options for the main body of the purse, four hair color options, and the choice of three common pubic hair designs (The Tidy Twat, The Overly Manicured Muff, or the 70s Porno Pussy).
They’re 10cm in diameter and each have their own lobster clip, so you can turn them into key-rings or bag accessories, and have a zip-up design to keep everything secure.
You can also take your pick from a crushed velvet or cotton interior, so your coins can stay nice and cozy.
‘The Vachina was a happy accident,’ the purse’s creator, Bec, told metro.co.uk.
‘I was actually pattern drafting a headphones pouch and my pattern testers kept saying that it looked like a vagina, so to “prove them wrong” I made one to deliberately look like a vagina with a pink zipper and with faux fur.
‘I posted it as a joke on my page to have a laugh and it exploded from there, with in 48 hours I had 55 orders for them!’
Bec recommends using her Vachinas as the perfect storage for headphones, menstrual cups, coins, and tampons, but says that ‘whatever anyone wants to stuff in their Vachina, that’s up to them’. As it should be.
‘The response has been insane,’ says Bec.
‘I was recognized at the shops once as “the Vachina lady”!
‘It has been really positive and as one lady said to me “men get to be proud of their willies, why can’t women be proud of their vaginas?” And I think that’s an excellent point.’
We agree. If you fancy getting your own Vachina, you can buy them through Etsy.
