About the Zine

The CUNTastic print zine began in June 2009 and publishes a new, themed issue every 3-6 months.  It’s an exploration of all things cunt, and is meant to be a compilation of experiences, thoughts & research from Laurel Ripple Carpenter & others.  It’s part personal, part educational, and all political.  Each issue of CUNTastic is bursting at the seams, overflowing with (at the very least): birth stories, DIY recipes for coochie-related items, snippets of life with new baby Ramona, and articles from contributors on the issue topic.  Lots of the illustrations included are from Laurel’s collection of vintage anatomy books.
