Laid Open


Jul 19, 2022

Please welcome activist Jessica Pin as our guest on this week’s episode of LaidOPEN Podcast. She’s an activist and a biomedical engineer, whose life work is advocating for the inclusion of detailed clitoral anatomy in medical literature and curricula, training standards for vulvar procedures, and correction of medical misinformation about vulvas.

Together we discuss what contributes to the shame women feel about their larger vulva and the misinformation distributed by the medical field about the reality of how 50% of the population has “outties”.

Jessica came to this cause because of her personal experience with a labiaplasty gone wrong, which resulted in her clitoral hood and entire inner lips being removed, and total loss of sensation in her clitoris.

Charna leads an exercise in becoming familiar with your vulva to reduce genital shame and lead to more ease and embracing of your body.
