This Corona Is Not Served With A Lime

For reasons that are somewhat unclear from this article, a Swedish sex education organization has renamed the hymen the vaginal corona.

I say somewhat unclear because the organization does note that the hymen is right up there when it comes to the biggest myths surrounding female sexuality, as in controlling womens' freedom.

Hymen is the Greek word for membrane, while vaginal corona plays off of the fact that this membrane has multiple folds and doesn't suddenly go pop pfft! like a punctured balloon after a woman has intercourse for the first time.

The headline on this post notwithstanding, I'm trying really hard to not make fun of these folks, but do they really think that vaginal corona is going to catch on?
