Surprisingly, others on the Internet took notice, so Starkey opened it up to let other women submit photos of their cervices. That was seven years ago. Now The Beautiful Cervix Project beautifulcervix. Starkey explains that all you need is a speculum, like the one your gynecologist uses to open the vagina for exams but inserted upside down, so you can reach the handle through your legs , a flashlight, and a camera.
Each gallery showcases a series of photos of different cervices. There are no external genitalia visible in any of the photos, but they are all taken by using a speculum to open the vagina to view the cervix. Please view at your discretion.

Think of your cervix as the gatekeeper to your uterus. Lots of things—like tampons, fingers, penises, sex toys, and other germ-carrying items—can get to your cervix, but they aren't getting past it. Likewise, there are things—like mucous, menstrual blood, and the occasional baby—that need to get out of your uterus. Your cervix is the bouncer, deciding what and when things go in and come out of your most vital piece of your reproductive system.
