Researchers have put together an interactive map of Sheela Na Gigs in Western Europe.  These graven images of older women pulling open their vulvas adorned churches and places of worship in Medieval times and harken back to ancient Egypt. 

It's not surprising that most of these reliefs were taken down and put in church basements like the image I've attached here (it's why so many of them have survived).  The prevailing thought was that Sheela Na Gigs were created as warnings against human lust.  I guess if you were a gay priest full frontal would seem like an admonition against sex.

I finally stumbled upon Marina Abramovic's Balkan Erotic Epic and had to post it here.  What's amazing is that youtube has no issue with full frontal female nudity (at least not when it's been deemed "art").  We've had clips censored for using the word "masturbation" in the title with no nudity but at least someone is representing for female sexuality.

Whenever we trace back our traditions, it's interesting how most acknowledge the strength and power of the female sex organ.  I love this video:
