Art and the Quim


Being women, we have a tendency to want to improve on nature. We paint our lips, color our eyes, lengthen our lashes and paint our nails. Is the quim exempt from this decorative obsession? Nope.

Of course the quim has been painted - reproduced on canvas in oils, in photos, digital art and just about every media you can imagine up to and including chocolate. There are probably some cave drawings featuring early quims. However, these days, we're very inventive when it comes to adorning our quims. From the whimsical - as in this little stick fellow with the lawnmower...


to the extremely elegant and creative (our Quiminologists believe the face and the birds are body paint rather than tattoos but adore them anyway).




Then there's the category that falls into "Ummm...", as in the rather startling devilish tattoo, which would, we imagine, be a pretty big surprise to an unprepared lover when revealed at an intimate moment. We conclude that a healthy "EEEEEK" would not be inappropriate.

No matter what the style,
there's always someone out there anxious to take what nature gave us and improve on it. Whether with tattoos, paint or even the occasional piercing, it's one of those things that's just asking for some art. Is it unique? Yes. Is it our cup of tea? Well, not really. But then again we're wimps when it comes to pain.

Of course, there are those who take their passion for the Quim to new heights. We have to wonder about that - see the gentleman who has expressed his adoration in body art. Our only question - has he realized he'll be living with this for the rest of his life?

What lovely quim fashion the paintings are! Castro's beard has never looked so full and well formed. And I love the quim as nest.
