Let us revolutionize the menstrual world together!

Vul­vani is a digi­tal edu­ca­tion plat­form all around mens­trua­tion, sexua­lity and female health. Through inter­ac­tive online cour­ses, our online maga­zine as well as social media chan­nels, people can play­fully close know­ledge gaps about the female body. We want to pro­vide impul­ses that make you start ques­tio­ni­ning the sta­tus quo ins­tead of pro­vi­ding uni­ver­sal 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.

Vul­vani is to become the glo­bal hub for know­ledge and edu­ca­tion around the (female) body. We are a cen­tral hub where many dif­fe­rent voices become audi­ble and visi­ble and share their know­ledge. Ever­yone should have the pos­si­bi­lity 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 invol­ved with the topic from an early age, albeit mostly invol­un­ta­rily. At the age of 13 she got her period for the first time in a cinema in Ber­lin and far away from home. She wasn’t pre­pa­red for it, nor did she have anyone to con­fide in. And not because no one was with her, but rather because the sub­ject was so uncom­for­ta­ble to her that she pre­fer­red to keep it to herself.

Britta has been going abroad again and again for a cou­ple of mon­ths, so she has already gai­ned a lot of expe­ri­ence of how mens­trua­tion is hand­led and viewed in dif­fe­rent coun­tries around the world: from plastic tam­pon tubes in the United Sta­tes to self-sewn, herb-soa­ked fab­ric pads that were was­hed on full moon in Cen­tral Ame­rica. At that time she found all this very strange and even had the tried and tes­ted Ger­man tam­pons sent to her. Today she herself is the ‘herb aunt’ with the fab­ric panty liners and would like to tell ever­yone about free blee­ding.

It’s a match!

Two fin­ger­s­wi­pes to the right led to Britta and Jamin fin­ding each other. Jamin was immedia­tely fasci­nia­ted by Britta’s idea to bring the mens­trual topic more into the public eye and it didn’t take them long to know that they wan­ted to make a long-las­ting con­tri­bu­tion tog­e­ther – Vul­vani was born. As an expe­ri­en­ced foun­der, Jamin ensu­res that ever­ything runs smoothly at Vul­vani, from finan­ces to IT and logistics. He also takes the beau­ti­ful pho­tos for us and keeps Britta’s back clear so that she can con­cen­trate fully on brin­ging Vulvani’s con­cept and mis­sion to live. She rese­ar­ches, wri­tes and designs all the con­tent – from social media or blog arti­cles to the inno­va­tive online cour­ses. She also sup­ports the Vul­vani com­mu­nity

The pro­ject star­ted in Octo­ber 2019. In the fol­lowing mon­ths they moved to South Ame­rica to able to fully focus on Vul­vani and the rea­liz­a­tion of their ideas and goals. Howe­ver, their choo­sen home is and will remain Ham­burg in Ger­many. If you’re in the mood for more ‘hard’ facts, you’re more than wel­come to con­nect with them on Lin­kedIn (links below) or sim­ply browse through their CVs!

Per­so­nal moti­va­tion
Even as an edu­ca­ted woman, I have only in recent years dealt more inten­si­vely and above all more con­sciously with my own mens­trua­tion. This was pro­vo­ked by lon­ger stays abroad in Cen­tral Ame­rica, where access to mens­trual pro­ducts was not always gua­ran­teed. I have ther­eby cri­ti­cally ques­tio­ned my own prac­ti­ces, tried out new methods and star­ted to talk more openly about peri­ods with dif­fe­rent people. These con­ver­sa­ti­ons and the resul­ting know­ledge about the igno­rance of alter­na­ti­ves in a sup­po­sedly edu­ca­ted and open society made me think. It spar­ked in me the inte­rest to deal more deeply with the topic and to change some­thing. For I find it important that spe­ci­fic topics such as mens­trua­tion are given a loud voice and that gen­der issues thus come to the fore in public dis­cour­ses.
Through Vul­vani, I want to reduce pre­ju­di­ces against mens­trua­tion through edu­ca­tion, pro­mote long-term social dia­lo­gues about the sub­ject and thus make a con­tri­bu­tion to a more just world. I hope that Vul­vani will become an example of how we can stand up for natu­ral needs and the empower­ment of all mens­trua­ting people.

Per­so­nal moti­va­tion
My strengths lie in advan­cing ideas and visi­ons, not in reco­gni­zing social and poli­ti­cal pro­blems. Howe­ver, this does not mean that I do not reco­gnize pro­blems when they are shown to me. I want to invest my time and expe­ri­ence in pro­jects that enable people to live a bet­ter, more beau­ti­ful and digni­fied life. It is here that Britta has iden­ti­fied a pro­blem that has gone unno­ti­ced for a long time.  Mea­ning that we can apply our respec­tive strengths to fit per­fectly tog­e­ther.
As a man and non-mens­trua­ting per­son, you gene­rally have very little to do with the sub­ject of mens­trua­tion. Rather, the moon time is seen as a time in which the woman is more moody or emo­tio­nally char­ged, has pain and as a man you can’t “get it on”. I am a very inte­res­ted per­son and am not afraid to speak openly about sup­po­sedly taboo topics. The many con­ver­sa­ti­ons with Britta have shown me how many chal­len­ges almost 50% of human­kind face every month and that there is still a lot of need for more infor­ma­tion once you know how easy and uncom­pli­ca­ted your mens­trua­tion can be. I encou­ra­ged Britta that we should start some­thing tog­e­ther in this area and shortly after Vul­vani was born.
