Humans have a strange relationship with their nether regions. Specifically, the female area that medicine likes to call the vulva and vagina. Men have, for centuries, been unabashedly proud of their penises and for just as long have been quite willing to display them-sometimes artistically, often drunkenly. The vulva just seems to make society nervous.
