If somebody would have told me a few years ago that I would one day be immortalizing my vulva in hot pink silicone, and then enthusiastically writing about it on the internet, I would have laughed and shook my head in disbelief. Recall that I haven’t always been comfortable with my with my body, including my genitalia. No doubt these insecurities are a byproduct of my repressive childhood.
Amazingly, I’ve come along way since then and continue to kick shame in the ass on the daily. With this as my focus, the Clone-A-Pussy Kit by Empire Labs sounded like a body positive crafting experience I had to take part in. I have to confess the thought of replicating my vulva in hot pink silicone filled me with sweet anticipation.
Whole New perspective
If you think about, it’s really not that radical of an idea. It’s pretty commonplace to celebrate milestones by making castings of hands, feet, and baby bumps. So why not celebrate the vulva in all its magnificence in the same way?
Men are born with the unique advantage of being able to see their genitals easily. Almost taking for granted the ease with which they learn to touch and handle their penis, early on. The benefits to their self-esteem, created from this familiarity and comfort, shouldn’t be underestimated.
Unfortunately, the other half of humanity doesn’t have the same luxury. It’s often not until late childhood, or maybe even our teen years, before we get out a hand mirror and really see ourselves for the first time. Making matters even worse. As little girls, we are usually discouraged from touching our vulvas. Leaving a lot of us feeling detached or unsure of our genitalia. Which ultimately results in a great deal of internalized shame.
The wonderful thing about Clone-A-Pussy is that it provides a new way to view our most intimate areas. Really, a truly new and unique perspective. I mean a mirror really can’t compare to a life-sized 3D silicone casting can it?
The kit comes with easy to follow instructions and all the components to make your one of a kind silicone pussy. All you will need to have on hand are a measuring cup, a spoon or spatula, a mixing bowl, and a 4 oz or larger disposable cup. The kit includes everything else.
The Clone-A-Pussy Kit really is simple to do. All it involves is mixing the molding powder with warm water and making an impression of your vulva. After that, all that is left, is to stir the silicone and pour it into your mold and patiently wait twenty-four hours for the silicone to cure. Then viola', you carefully peel the silicone vulva from the mold to reveal your true-to-life silicone replica.
A Few Tips To Help You Out
There are a few things that you can do that will make the process easier. Let me elaborate a little further and offer some tips that will make your Clone-A-Pussy experience go a little smoother.
First, be sure to thoroughly read over all the instructions before beginning. Second, the water used to mix the molding powder should ideally be around body temperature. I highly recommend using a thermometer to make sure the specified temperature is maintained. Lastly, you'll want to be sure you're not in a carpeted area while working. This will make any spills easy to clean up later.
All in all, I found the experience helpful in furthering my mission of laying to rest any lingering shame about the appearance of my vulva. This process could be so beneficial to all women. Especially those, like myself, that stuggle with feras that their vulvas don't look "normal". In our society we're constantly bombarded by the media's images of surgically altered labias. So I know I'm not the only one who has suffered with some form of self internalized shame about how my vulva and labia look.
Some may see the Clone-A-Pussy Kit as purely a novelty item. I would otherwise beg to differ. Products like it are helpful in shattering the negative ideas and misconceptions ew have about our bodies. Helping to silence those little voices of doubt telling us we're not enough. Both Clone-A-Pussy and Clone-A-Willy kits are tools we can use to combat the negative thoughts.
