Editor’s pick by Dr. Karen Rayne from Adolescent Sexuality: I am so excited to present you with The Belly Project!  This is my newest project with my dear friend and midwife Christy Tashjian.  We created The Belly Project as a place to offer a counter-balance to the overwhelming prevalance of fake bellies that are so shamelessly paraded around movies, advertising, and the fashion runways.

Women (and sometimes men…you know who you are…) can be obsessed with their bodies. Hair, nails, toes, skin, breasts, hips, eyes, they all get fixated on. But perhaps nothing is as preoccupying to us as our bellies. Our bellies are intimately related our sexuality and to our reproductive lives. It’s a complicated interaction, that confluence of sex and babies.

So, with that in mind, this blog is a place to come and put our bellies in perspective and to share them anonymously with the great wide Internetz.

There are more belly pictures online, all organized into categories of age, number of pregnancies, babies, abortions, miscarriages, and many more!

So do you want to be part of the belly project? E-mail your belly picture, your age, and your reproductive history to thebellyproject@gmail.com and we’ll get your belly into the project!

Subscribe to have all of these lovely bellies delivered directly to your computer for your own convenience via e-mail or RSS.
