Conveniently, it's not: this is what the first "hygienic bandage" looked like - voila! Sheee


The Vagina Museum in London closed this February because the landlord wanted to rent the property to someone else (true story) - here's a last chance to see how the sanitary napkin worked in the 19th century

Down a back alley in a London borough is the world's first vagina museum, formerly

Unfortunately, it closed its doors on February 1) after its founders were forced by the owner to vacate the property.

The museum, as its name implies, exhibits genitals in a high level of detail, albeit artistically - the walls are covered with pubic hair, and pictures inspired by gynecology that can be seen already from the window, fill the place, but even without these signs it would be difficult to miss the large house on which the sign "Museum" is hoisted The vagina" on the white wall by the door.

When you enter you are greeted by the friendly staff and a massive tampon decorated with red glitter that symbolizes menstrual blood, which hints at what is to come.

Like most museums, the vagina museum also has an interactive element, which is mainly expressed in random doodles of genitals and positive affirmations about oversized lips next to an illustration of a dripping vagina, as if the walls of the museum were a corrupt teenage writing desk, only here they call it "graffiti", And this surface is a kind of platform for activists, more than a moment of boredom in the girls' bathroom.

On the day side of the museum, you can find works that describe the history of different periods, such as ancient concoctions to relieve stomach aches, as well as an ibiferon pill and a chocolate bar.

The ancient Egyptians concocted a mixture to relieve period pain that makes a dose of ibuprofen and chocolate look very pleasant and delicious: "a drink of carob fruit extract, herbs and cow's milk" is clearly written on a written remnant of a gynecologist's instructions from 1800 BC "boil, cool, mix together, to drink in four mornings".


It turns out that the ancient Egyptians also believed that rubbing menstrual blood on the chest was the most effective remedy for sagging breasts - so maybe period masks aren't so weird after all.

The vagina museum is not a temple of feminists - on the contrary - it is a place with many educational advantages.

Wait, I wear this strange construction and come to work (Photo: screenshot, Facebook)

Women's dealing with a bloody vagina was not always as simple as wearing padded underwear or a sanitary pad, not to mention a tampon - women used to use the 'hygienic belt', which looks more like something between a kitchen apron and a phone pouch - a strange belt that is a construction of Fabrics tied together like an apron.

Women wore this thing under their clothes to make sure that the only relevant bandage - the one between the woman's legs, did not move out of place and, God forbid, reveal the abomination.

Yes yes, it's real, and as if that wasn't enough, it was like that from the 19th century until the 1970s, until the sticky version was invented in the 1980s.

Sheee wants to stab herself in the eye just thinking about the washing that should have been done by hand, by the river.
