Tampons, periods, yeast infections, hair - vaginas (well, actually, vulvas).

So many of us have one, we all came from one, and so why does talking about the ol' lass make us feel so uncomfortable? 

"If you fear talking about it, then you actually fear your vagina itself," says YouTube personality Kat Lazo when discussing Kat's Project, an initiative that aims to demystify and, well, de-gross, lady parts so that more woman are comfortable talking about sexual health, period problems and more.

Yes, the whole thing is sponsored by U by Kotex, but we think it's worth a watch just to see the transition from 'eew', when the girls are first asked about their vaginas, to the refreshing, relatable and honest tales we hear from them after they - well, sorry for the pun - open up a bit.
