Vulva emojis

These new vagina emojis are the best

The emoji revolution continues. We finally got racially diverse emojis. An official taco one is coming down the pike. (Thank god.) And last week, sexting start-up Flirtmoji released a set of diverse, colorful, realistically asymmetrical vagina emojis that I adore. 

Five of them are now available to paste into your messaging apps and the plan is to eventually release all of these beauties, as well as other sexy bodies parts. Of course, Flirtmoji can’t release its own app because the repressive, sexist Apple and Android app stores censor sexually explicit content (as well as reproductive rights-related apps) but are a-okay with sexually objectifying apps.

At the Verge, Flirtmoji’s Katy McCarthy and Jeremy Yingling discuss their process for designing them, which involved lots of Google image searching. As someone who knows nothing about design but just finds these little images so damn pleasing, it’s fascinating to hear about all the thought that went into everything — from the color scheme to the challege of including hair given the pixel constraints of tiny emoji.
