Is there anything a stylish vajayjay can’t accomplish? We don’t think so. Face it. You’ve always wanted to test out a Landing Strip. Or perhaps, inexplicably, an Arrow!
Julyna is more than a catchy name. It’s a charitable organization that’s here to prove that our collective pubic power is greater than cervical cancer. For the month of July, we’re encouraging women to style their pubic hair in order to fundraise and spread awareness about this harmful disease.
That’s right. Our muffs are making things happen. Because when our womanhood is threatened, it’s up to all of us to take a stand, put our hair up and get down to business. That’s why we’re using them to go up against a disease that threatens countless of Canadian women each year.
So let’s get together. Linked by our pronounced pubic hair, we’ll help promote education, healthy lifestyle choices and raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.
Ladies, start your grooming. To all you Movember Men, help the gals out there and help support Julyna. Spread the word!
WHAT’S THE DEAL:
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the major cause of cervical cancer and is spread through genital skin-to-skin contact. There are two vaccines approved for use in Canada to prevent HPV infection. These vaccines should be viewed as a complement, not a replacement for cervical cancer screening.
Luckily, women can prevent most incidences of cervical cancer by properly screening themselves for the disease. The preventative vaccine program is open to young females 9 years and older. If a woman is 21 years of age and has become sexually active she should have a Pap test every 1 – 3 years.
