Remember the hit play The Vagina Monologues?
If you ever saw the show in all its feminist glory — with Eve Ensler’s brilliant combination of audacity, insights, and triple orgasms — you more than likely first saw it in college. And you’re probably a woman.
That was not the case for me. Not exactly.
When I was in high school, my drama club decided to do a student production of the show — but with one small twist. They were going to put on the first-ever co-ed version of The Vagina Monologues. And they told me, “Josh, we’ve got the perfect monologue just for you.”
An inspired idea? Or a recipe for gender-bending disaster?

And if Eve Ensler is reading this…trust me, Eve. It wasn’t my idea.
