Here is a fun and helpful "SNATCH CAST" Q&A put together by an attendee of a casting ceremony:
I survived the SNATCH CAST! And you can too! None of my friends showed up, but I have faith in you. Here's a little Q&A that might help to seal the deal:
Q: Is it fun?
A: Yes it is! Hanging out with open minded, free spirited women usually is.
Q: Will anyone in the room see my snatch?
A: A: Large men’s dress shirts and mismatched socks are available for you to wear. If you’d prefer your own clothes, please wear something comfortable, vagina-accessible, and that you don’t mind getting messed up. Alga-Safe does not come out of fabric.
Q: Will anyone touch my snatch?
A: No, you are fully in charge of your own cast.
Q: How long does it take?
A: The cast itself only takes about 5 minutes. Expect to be there about an hour and a half, but don't worry, it is social and fun!
Q: What do the artists use to cast a snatch?
A: They use alginate, the same stuff your dentist puts in your mouth to cast your teeth. Believe me, I would cast my downstairs any day of the week over my teeth. That always makes me gag.
Q: Do I have to shave?
A: A: Nope. The alginate is pretty pliable stuff, so it works whether you’re rocking full bush, freshly waxed, or anywhere in between.
Q: Will everyone know that my cast vulva belongs to me?
A: No, all the casts are anonymous.
Q: What if I support the concept, but I just can't bring myself to drop my drawers?
A: You can participate in the letter-writing portion of the project, donate to support the project, or help spread the word and promote it to your friends.
Q: Why should I do it?
A: Well, there are as many answers to this question as there are women, but some of the reasons I'm participating are: 1) Cuz I want to support my fellow artists (Joy and Julie); 2) Cuz I don't think women should be shy or embarrassed by their lovely lady parts. . . let's show them off ladies; 3) Cuz I want to see many sets of porcelain vulva plates in an exhibition and know that I played a small part in the creation!
