The following excerpt was taken from the Vagina Monologues script written by Eve Ensler and found on-line in full text at script-o-rama.com. I am not the author, nor could I ever pretend to be as awesome as Eve.

Okay, confession time: I am absolutely in love with my vagina.
I know, it sounds weird, but it’s true. I was thinking about this the other day when I was in the shower, and I began to wonder if there were other women out there who feel the way I do — or if I was just weird (maybe both).
Years ago (long before the dawn of the Vagina Monologues), I named her. I can’t remember now what inspired this strange move, but I do remember that I was in high school, and it was right around the time of coming out and first girlfriends and feeling that intense physical love for the first time.
I named her — Duchess.
I thought it was perfect (and I still think it is).
