Your trophy is vaginal atrophy

Often a natural consequence reduced estrogen production as a woman ages, vaginal atrophy is the thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls, which can make intercourse painful and lead to scaring. Here it is celebrated as a symbol of the older woman, a testament to safety from harassment and violence that aging can bring. At the same time, vaginal dryness is a frequent trope of rape porn as proof that the victim is not aroused and a way to cause greater pain. This piece brings these conflicting interpretations together at once, asking us to consider from which perspective we might view this condition as a trophy.
