About

A Girl’s Guide to Personal Hygiene started out as a Facebook group. Inspired by Charlotte Roche’s book Wetlands – a thorough exploration of sex and private grooming – Tallulah wanted to find out if her friends were as disgusting as she suspected everyone secretly was.

They began sharing the gross “unladylike” things they privately revelled in: tentatively at first, then in a viscous, putrid outpouring of over 200 stories, hilarious and affirming in equal measure. Thanks to the honesty and openness of the contributors, the group has become more than just an outlet; it’s allowed girls to feel more comfortable about their bodily functions.

In the words of one member:

I’ve started to really enjoy going to the clinic. I LOVE talking and learning about my vagina. 

This exhibition is a selection of stories from the group, illustrated by Tallulah and designed by James Sutton.

All work is for sale, so if you'd like to purchase a piece, please email tpomeroy@live.co.uk.
