What is the vagina of America?

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Vagina Monologues, VDay is holding a star-studded event in New Orleans on April 12.

April 11 and 12 will find the Louisiana Superdome interior turned into a pink and red vagina — “with a big vagina entrance,” Ensler said — as a setting for performance events, parties, parades, workshops, wellness and education programs, speakers, even spa treatments, which will be free to residents of New Orleans and the Gulf South. (Men are excluded only from the spa.)
For those two days, New Orleans will be “the Vagina Capital of America,” Ensler said. “We’re coming here to say that we should celebrate New Orleans, cherish it, protect it, just as we do our vaginas, and make sure it goes on and on.”

Okay, I love me some Vagina Monologues–but this just made laugh. Is it possible for vagina-talk to get too hokey? Cause I think we’re almost there.
Vagina-exhaustion aside, this looks like it’s going to be a fabulous time and I really want to go. VDay is teaming up with local grassroots organization the Katrina Warriors (logo above) as part of the V to the Tenth event. Hope to see you, and your Vs, there.
