This is a recurring interview that the TFC blog conducts with random women. The idea is to show how varied and unique each woman's sexual experience can be. To protect the interviewee's privacy, she will be identified as her favorite flower.

TFC: When is the last time you looked at your vulva?


RR: last week. i was on my yoga mat in downward-facing-dog position
facing a full-length mirror in broad-daylight. i have a cute freckle on my left-labia and as it turns out,
so does my sister!

TFC: What does it look like to you?

RR: like a purple Rugosa Rose...ravaged w/reckless abandon on the outside; while tender & tingly on the inside

TFC: Age at first orgasm?


RR: 12


TFC: How did you achieve it?

RR: by accident. i was playing w/my
barbie dolls and was changing their clothes.
i held them in btwn my legs to keep them steady as I
disrobed them. the barbie dolls' legs slipped deeper
into my crotch, and it was at that moment that i felt
the tingle and once i figured out how to repeat that
sensation, i've never stopped.

TFC: What does an orgasm feel like to you?

RR: the ultimate high; the feeling of riding the wave..ebb & flow

TFC: Do you have a definition for orgasm?


RR: YES.
two main types; "clitoral" and "vaginal".
two very different orgasms.
the clitoral is a quick-jolt, a short-story. and self-achieved.
the vaginal is a whole drama, story-arcs, curve-balls, peaks&valleys
it's got characters and extras; it's a drama; not a short story!

TFC: When was your most recent orgasm and what were the circumstances?

RR: Aahh..just last week..hotel-sex w/my hot boyfriend in vegas, baby!
we love banging in bathrooms!

TFC: Have you ever had trouble reaching orgasm? if so, how did it make you feel?


RR: Yes! Made me feel LIKE SHIT! frustrated/angry


TFC: What did you do to overcome?


RR: MASTURBATE UNTIL I MADE MYSELF SORE!

TFC: Have any nicknames for your vulva?

RR: my boyfriend *lovingly* named it the "gyonster".

TFC: What is the best piece of sex advice you've ever received?


RR: I HAVE NEVER RECEIVED ANY GOOD SEX ADVICE FROM ANY OUTSIDE SOURCE!
i trust my heart, my head and my vulva.
