GLOW club “bits” and straws

Here are my girls building the tallest free standing structure possible with 40 plastic straws and 12 inches of duct tape.  They had great fun and got very competitive.

They welcomed the break because we started our meeting talking about lady “bits”.  Behind them, hanging on the walls, are diagrams of a vagina and the menstrual cycle.  I had been drawing penises and talking about “how many holes” and  tampons for 30 minutes.  While they were fascinated, they appreciated this diversion.

Next week:   The penis.  We can start by taking about their straw erections.


Turkish bath 98%

Women only spa in the Sultan’s Haram no less. Tourist schtick made it no less delightful.

So pictures aren’t allowed inside but let me say that having a female attendant scrub 98% of me was great. While I would not have wanted my other 2% scrubbed, I may have found the source of Turkish funk we smelled in the streets. Two present is enough if it never gets washed.
