coloring book for my perfect world

treat the natural as ordinary to decrease our human angst. ahhh... we have coloring books for all the other parts of the body. what if we had respectful ones for all our parts? what if we grew up in this environment? what if we saw these since day 1?

how did I miss this? the cunt coloring book by the late Tee Corinne has been around for about 25 years and I've never heard of it till now, thanks to an artist friend suggesting I might like Tee's work.

on the Last Gasp page that offers this book for sale, it says:
This item contains adult content. If you are under 18, please leave this page.

but their writeup for the Gangsta Rap Coloring Book with a thick line art gun on the cover, says nothing of adult content. however, it does say "The juxtaposition of the outlaw image of the rappers with the childlike innocence of a coloring book makes for an instant laugh." huh???

why the vulva is off limits to under 18 in our culture while the gun is not is beyond me. make them both equally accessible, one way or another - either of these is better to me than the way it is, yes?

anyway, I went looking for what else I might have missed. I searched for coloring books of vaginas, vulvae, cocks and penises. I found The Big Coloring Book of Vaginas and The Big Coloring Book of Cocks, both by Morgan Hastings - hard to find more about this author. both are more cartoonish than the Cunt Coloring Book.

imagine if we all grew up with comfort about all parts of our bodies. I think I am more likely to win the Nobel Prize than to get my mind around all the implications of that.

and yet I still wonder - could we do this?
