Let us revolutionize the menstrual world together!

Vul¬≠vani is a digi¬≠tal edu¬≠ca¬≠tion plat¬≠form all around mens¬≠trua¬≠tion, sexua¬≠lity and female health. Through inter¬≠ac¬≠tive online cour¬≠ses, our online maga¬≠zine as well as social media chan¬≠nels, people can play¬≠fully close know¬≠ledge gaps about the female body. We want to pro¬≠vide impul¬≠ses that make you start ques¬≠tio¬≠ni¬≠ning the sta¬≠tus quo ins¬≠tead of pro¬≠vi¬≠ding uni¬≠ver¬≠sal solutions. 

Vision

Our vision is that every per­son has the oppor­tu­nity to learn about their body. Vulvani’s goal is to nor­ma­lize taboo topics through enter­tai­ning edu­ca­tion in order to empower people and create inclu­sive societies.

Vul¬≠vani is to become the glo¬≠bal hub for know¬≠ledge and edu¬≠ca¬≠tion around the (female) body. We are a cen¬≠tral hub where many dif¬≠fe¬≠rent voices become audi¬≠ble and visi¬≠ble and share their know¬≠ledge. Ever¬≠yone should have the pos¬≠si¬≠bi¬≠lity to learn more about their own body.

Our Story

We are Britta and Jamin. Tog­e­ther we have set the goal of impro­ving the per­cep­tion of peri­ods in society and making the actual mens­trua­tion of all mens­trua­ting people as plea­sant, simple and sus­tainable as pos­si­ble.
_______________________________________ 

Britta has been invol¬≠ved with the topic from an early age, albeit mostly invol¬≠un¬≠ta¬≠rily. At the age of 13 she got her period for the first time in a cinema in Ber¬≠lin and far away from home. She wasn‚Äôt pre¬≠pa¬≠red for it, nor did she have anyone to con¬≠fide in. And not because no one was with her, but rather because the sub¬≠ject was so uncom¬≠for¬≠ta¬≠ble to her that she pre¬≠fer¬≠red to keep it to herself.

Britta has been going abroad again and again for a cou¬≠ple of mon¬≠ths, so she has already gai¬≠ned a lot of expe¬≠ri¬≠ence of how mens¬≠trua¬≠tion is hand¬≠led and viewed in dif¬≠fe¬≠rent coun¬≠tries around the world: from plastic tam¬≠pon tubes in the United Sta¬≠tes to self-sewn, herb-soa¬≠ked fab¬≠ric pads that were was¬≠hed on full moon in Cen¬≠tral Ame¬≠rica. At that time she found all this very strange and even had the tried and tes¬≠ted Ger¬≠man tam¬≠pons sent to her. Today she herself is the ‚Äėherb aunt‚Äô with the fab¬≠ric panty liners and would like to tell ever¬≠yone about free blee¬≠ding.

It‚Äôs a match!

Two fin¬≠ger¬≠s¬≠wi¬≠pes to the right led to Britta and Jamin fin¬≠ding each other. Jamin was immedia¬≠tely fasci¬≠nia¬≠ted by Britta‚Äôs idea to bring the mens¬≠trual topic more into the public eye and it didn‚Äôt take them long to know that they wan¬≠ted to make a long-las¬≠ting con¬≠tri¬≠bu¬≠tion tog¬≠e¬≠ther ‚Äď Vul¬≠vani was born. As an expe¬≠ri¬≠en¬≠ced foun¬≠der, Jamin ensu¬≠res that ever¬≠ything runs smoothly at Vul¬≠vani, from finan¬≠ces to IT and logistics. He also takes the beau¬≠ti¬≠ful pho¬≠tos for us and keeps Britta‚Äôs back clear so that she can con¬≠cen¬≠trate fully on brin¬≠ging Vulvani‚Äôs con¬≠cept and mis¬≠sion to live. She rese¬≠ar¬≠ches, wri¬≠tes and designs all the con¬≠tent ‚Äď from social media or blog arti¬≠cles to the inno¬≠va¬≠tive online cour¬≠ses. She also sup¬≠ports the Vul¬≠vani com¬≠mu¬≠nity

The pro¬≠ject star¬≠ted in Octo¬≠ber 2019. In the fol¬≠lowing mon¬≠ths they moved to South Ame¬≠rica to able to fully focus on Vul¬≠vani and the rea¬≠liz¬≠a¬≠tion of their ideas and goals. Howe¬≠ver, their choo¬≠sen home is and will remain Ham¬≠burg in Ger¬≠many. If you‚Äôre in the mood for more ‚Äėhard‚Äô facts, you‚Äôre more than wel¬≠come to con¬≠nect with them on Lin¬≠kedIn (links below) or sim¬≠ply browse through their CVs!

‚ÄėI stand on the sacrifices of a million women before me thinking: What can I do to make this mountain taller so the women after me can see farther?‚Äô

Per­so­nal moti­va­tion
Even as an edu¬≠ca¬≠ted woman, I have only in recent years dealt more inten¬≠si¬≠vely and above all more con¬≠sciously with my own mens¬≠trua¬≠tion. This was pro¬≠vo¬≠ked by lon¬≠ger stays abroad in Cen¬≠tral Ame¬≠rica, where access to mens¬≠trual pro¬≠ducts was not always gua¬≠ran¬≠teed. I have ther¬≠eby cri¬≠ti¬≠cally ques¬≠tio¬≠ned my own prac¬≠ti¬≠ces, tried out new methods and star¬≠ted to talk more openly about peri¬≠ods with dif¬≠fe¬≠rent people. These con¬≠ver¬≠sa¬≠ti¬≠ons and the resul¬≠ting know¬≠ledge about the igno¬≠rance of alter¬≠na¬≠ti¬≠ves in a sup¬≠po¬≠sedly edu¬≠ca¬≠ted and open society made me think. It spar¬≠ked in me the inte¬≠rest to deal more deeply with the topic and to change some¬≠thing. For I find it important that spe¬≠ci¬≠fic topics such as mens¬≠trua¬≠tion are given a loud voice and that gen¬≠der issues thus come to the fore in public dis¬≠cour¬≠ses.
Through Vul¬≠vani, I want to reduce pre¬≠ju¬≠di¬≠ces against mens¬≠trua¬≠tion through edu¬≠ca¬≠tion, pro¬≠mote long-term social dia¬≠lo¬≠gues about the sub¬≠ject and thus make a con¬≠tri¬≠bu¬≠tion to a more just world. I hope that Vul¬≠vani will become an example of how we can stand up for natu¬≠ral needs and the empower¬≠ment of all mens¬≠trua¬≠ting people.

Per­so­nal moti­va­tion
My strengths lie in advan¬≠cing ideas and visi¬≠ons, not in reco¬≠gni¬≠zing social and poli¬≠ti¬≠cal pro¬≠blems. Howe¬≠ver, this does not mean that I do not reco¬≠gnize pro¬≠blems when they are shown to me. I want to invest my time and expe¬≠ri¬≠ence in pro¬≠jects that enable people to live a bet¬≠ter, more beau¬≠ti¬≠ful and digni¬≠fied life. It is here that Britta has iden¬≠ti¬≠fied a pro¬≠blem that has gone unno¬≠ti¬≠ced for a long time.  Mea¬≠ning that we can apply our respec¬≠tive strengths to fit per¬≠fectly tog¬≠e¬≠ther.
As a man and non-mens¬≠trua¬≠ting per¬≠son, you gene¬≠rally have very little to do with the sub¬≠ject of mens¬≠trua¬≠tion. Rather, the moon time is seen as a time in which the woman is more moody or emo¬≠tio¬≠nally char¬≠ged, has pain and as a man you can‚Äôt ‚Äúget it on‚ÄĚ. I am a very inte¬≠res¬≠ted per¬≠son and am not afraid to speak openly about sup¬≠po¬≠sedly taboo topics. The many con¬≠ver¬≠sa¬≠ti¬≠ons with Britta have shown me how many chal¬≠len¬≠ges almost 50% of human¬≠kind face every month and that there is still a lot of need for more infor¬≠ma¬≠tion once you know how easy and uncom¬≠pli¬≠ca¬≠ted your mens¬≠trua¬≠tion can be. I encou¬≠ra¬≠ged Britta that we should start some¬≠thing tog¬≠e¬≠ther in this area and shortly after Vul¬≠vani was born.
