"It looks like one of those turnovers."

Unlike penises, vaginas don't exactly stare you in the face when you look in the mirror, unless that mirror is a hand mirror and you've got one leg propped up on your toilet seat. But for some women, never seeing their own vaginas is the result of a deliberate choice they made not to look — whether because she was a rape victim or a once-aspiring nun or because someone, sometime, said her vagina was ugly.

YouTube user Davey Wavey posted a Craigslist ad in search of these women and interviewed them on camera before having the women individually take turns going into a makeshift Vagina Booth to take their first looks. Their reactions, captured on camera, are both illuminating and inspiring.
