Phantom Vagina

I'm being all spammy about trans stuff the past couple of days. Don't know what's up with that. But here's another one.

I discovered earlier today that if you google for the term "phantom penis" (with quotes) you get 161,000 results, whereas if you google for "phantom vagina" (ditto) you get only 210 results. For some (doubtless perverse) reason, I feel the need to redress the balance somewhat. Say hello to the 211th google result for "phantom vagina"!

Hi. Yes. My name is rho and I have a phantom vagina.

(The idea is the same as phantom limbs that amputees can feel after the amputation. Only different, obviously, since I've never actually had a real one. Sometimes I feel it very strongly. Sometimes not.)

Yeah *sighs* I know what you mean.

-- someone on your flist who won't sign on a public post.

Would you mind telling me who you are privately, either by email (rho@rho.me.uk) or LJ private message? If you'd rather not, that's fine. I'm just curious.

I know what you mean, too. *hugs*

It's not really a hug-requiring thing. Or, for me, a sigh-inducing thing either, for that matter. It's just one of those mundane facts of life that I felt compelled to document, because it's so poorly documented otherwise.

Oh, I know it wasn't a hug-requiring thing. I'm just feeling very huggy and clingy right now, and need people to talk to. I'm talking to people, but, yeah.

Ah, OK. Wasn't sure. I'm just generally not a particularly huggy person is all. Well, I am in person, but not online. Have all sorts of various reasons why I'm not online; I probably should write an LJ entry about that at some point. But yeah. No worries. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't coming across as seeking sympathy, when I'm really not. :)

Oh, phantombits. My apologies.

I haven't actually checked this out for myself, but apparently a bunch of them contain "alien non-consent erotica". Yeah...

Ditto with phantom limbs in amputees, since they're also outside their post-amputation body.
