In 1973, Tee Corinne set out to do drawings of women's genitalia for use in sex education groups.

Originally published in 1975 by lesbian activist and artist Tee A. Corinne, the Cunt Coloring Book was originally intended as a sex education resource. Of course, the parade of vulvas doesn’t always inform so much as affect the viewer (especially as the depictions become increasingly stylized throughout the book), but the project is a classic example of feminist/queer art, representative of the more experimental second-wave of sapphic activism. What’s more, Corinne intended to create something interactive for both children and adults:

’In 1973 I set out to do drawings of women’s genitals for use in sex education groups. I wanted the drawings to be lovely and informative, to give pleasure and affirmation. I organized the drawings into a coloring book because a major way we learn to understand the world, as children, is by coloring. As adults many of us still need to learn about our external sexual anatomy.

But what about the “C-word” title? Wasn’t that an impediment to sales, or were the 70s really that much more open of an era? Corinne explained: The Cunt Coloring Book, published in 1975, was immediately and wildly popular, although many people complained about the “awful” title. Three printings later, in 1981, the title was changed to Labiaflowers and the book virtually died. So much for euphemisms. To complete your adventure into the adult coloring book world don't forget to pick up some NPW 50/50 Two-tone Colored Pencils so you can start coloring as soon as the package arrives. This set makes a great gift for people love and even some you don't ;)
