Ever confused a Volvo with a vulva? A G-string with a G-spot? A missionary with a position? Dripping with tongue-in-cheek humour, Laura-Doe’s canny characters and unusually vocal velvet vulvae illuminate and entertain on the fertile topic of female genitalia.

Taking the baton from Eve Ensler’s ground breaking Vagina Monologues, Vaudeville of the Vulva leads us giggling and gasping into a deeper appreciation of this much maligned and misunderstood body part.

Written and performed by comedian, singer/songwriter and award-winning sex educator, Laura-Doe, the show is hosted by an Oxford Yoniversity professor and her guests from The Vulva Underground. Not to be confused with Puppetry of the Penis, the show is funny, sexy and wise, yet involves no nudity. It has received rapturous acclaim.

"Laura-Doe’s singular presence on stage .. reminds me of the great Jean-Paul Bell at his best .. or even to the earliest days of Barry Humphries. She has all the talent, presence, confidence and authority, combined with the wicked pommie sense of humour, to go where no one has gone before. We are amused, informed, educated and generally entertained by an exceedingly clever woman on a mission. This show is bound to go along way, bringing a very special and personal message with it to women everywhere (and the odd bloke who cares)." (Nimbin Good Times)

For the majority of people, women's genitals are hard to name accurately, if at all, and remain shrouded in mystery. Vaudeville of the Vulva is a series of light-hearted sketches that inform by entertaining. However its motivation is also serious, seeking to gently lift taboos, using comedy and song to release tension and create the freedom to speak about, understand and appreciate this amazing area through which we are all designed to enter the world.

A professional somatic sexologist, Laura-Doe is passionate about empowering people to understand and appreciate the immense power of their natural capacity for pleasure. When she is not entertaining, she gives sessions and runs sexuality workshops through The yOniversity and develops educational tools such as The Vulvalicious Cushions, The Art & Science of Female Arousal DVD and the yOnilates programme of pelvic floor empowerment.

What people have said about Vaudeville of the Vulva …

'I absolutely LOVED your show, so funny, clever, entertaining AND educational. You were absolutely brilliant. Part of me wondered whether people would find it difficult, be a bit embarrassed, but no. The script was excellent and the way you delivered it, the characters were very good and it was so much fun, everyone was relaxed and enjoying it. Thanks so much, I will recommend to everyone in case you run it again in Oxford.'
Steph Pirrie, Vocal Coach, Oxford, UK

Vaudeville of the Vulva
Vaudeville of the Vulva
The Vaudeville of the Vulva is Laura Doe’s hilarious one-woman show (along with the ”vulva underground'!)centred on the vulva, the external female genitalia generally incorrectly referred to as the vagina which only pertains to the interior canal.
Starting with a very funny, cockney cleaning lady preparing the stage and the audience, Vaudeville of the Vulva is both a raunchy giggle and educational. Touching on the anatomical wonders of the female genitalia, starting with the clitoris, the only organ in humans whose sole purpose is to provide pleasure and that is much larger than merely the trigger point at the top of the vulva, the audience is taken for a brief ride through the various historical cultural mores with regards to female sexuality and its mystery.
I noticed many young female members of the audience nodded when Laura Doe spoke of how hard it is for women to even say the word vagina, even to their doctor or mother, preferring to say ‘down there’, pussy, beaver plus a plethora of other substitutes.
At one point we all stood up to heartily sing along to ‘My My My Vagina’ (to the tune of ‘My My My Delilah’), which all the men in the audience found super funny! Later ‘Do the Vulvalution’ to the tune of
‘Do the locomotion’ was also fun.
Making use of puppets and multiple costume and personality changes, Vaudeville of the Vulva is a playful and risqué presentation of the wonders of the vulva. The Indian tantric teacher, the very proper English professor, the famous French lover plus others, all with something interesting to say. The Catholic nun espousing the joys of ‘self help’ was hilarious.
A little like The Vagina Monologues that spread all around the world 10-15 years ago, but from a comedic perspective, the Vaudeville of the Vulva is a celebration of the vulva and female sexuality, excellent for men and women of all ages (post puberty) where everyone can learn something as well as laugh their way through some layers of sexual shame and ignorance. An appetite whetter extraordinaire! Click Here
