The scientific contribution of VAGINALOGY is part of the virtual ARCHIVE of VAGINAMUSEUM.at and offers insights into the topics woman, body, sexuality and society from the perspective of a young scientist.

The newly created term VAGINALOGY doesn't yet exist in the general German language and consists of the word VAGINA and the suffix -LOGY.

The word vagina is identical in many languages due to its Latin roots. By mistake, it's used for the entire female sex instead of for the actual linkage between the uterus and the vulva.
The suffix -logy originates from the Ancient Greek word lógos (theory, sense, knowledge) and designates the actual science of a topic. In medicine, the term gynecology stands for the science of gynecological disorders and primarily addresses the prevention, the knowledge and the treatment of affected female sexual and reproductive organs. Furthermore, gynecology deals with midwifery.

Hitherto, there has been no term for the scientific approach towards the multi-faceted entirety of the healthy female sex. The new term VAGINALOGY not only discusses medical but also social and psychological aspects of femininity.

For a long time, various forms and functions concerning the female sexual organ have been a matter of mysticism. Also research is still reluctant when it comes to new insights in sexology. This is why we are presently still confronted with secrets and myths around the female body and sexuality which cause deceptive assumptions and belief systems.

VAGINALOGY clearly and concisely represents the current state of research as well as different perspectives of various questions and problems such as "What's the female orgasm and which role do clitoris, G-spot and uterus play in it? Can women also ejaculate? Is the hymen really a thick membrane which occludes the vaginal opening? What kind of language is used to describe sexuality and to what extend does it influence the psyche? How can sexual violence against women be counteracted privately and publically?"

VAGINALOGY symbolizes physical and mental aspects of femininity, clarifies predominant mental constructs and presents the current scientific insights.

Adjusted to the general corporate design of VAGINAMUSEUM.at, VAGINALOGY is designed in form of a lotus which stands for the vagina in various Asian traditions. Similarly to the word vagina, the lotus comprises several aspects, that is, it symbolizes purity and transformation as well as sexuality. The lotus as an image for the womb of an enlightened woman offers a playful and aesthetic metaphor for the female sexual organs.
