New Warning on ‘Perfect Vaginas’

From the very staid and proper BBC:

Women are undergoing surgery to create perfect genitalia amid a “shocking” lack of information on the potential risks of the procedure, a report says.

Research published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology also questions the very notion of aesthetically pleasing genitals.

Operations to improve the appearance of the sex organs for both psychological and physical reasons are on the rise.

But surgeons said the report overplayed the risks of an established procedure.

Researchers from University College London reviewed all the existing studies on cosmetic labial surgery – which generally involves reducing the amount of tissue that protrudes from the lips which cover the vagina. They found there had been little work to document any longer-term side effects…

    This just made me think of a WNYC Radiolab show titled “Change” and a discussion about domesticating foxes. When we're promoting adolescent human features as desirable, whether it's anything from pre-pubescent pussy appearance in pornography to men with boy-ish features in movies, are we intentionally selecting for more domesticated humans?

    One of the most beautiful and sexy parts of a woman's body are the lips (labia majora and minora) and clitoris. (IMHO)
    If there is someone out there considering surgery, please re-consider!
    Forget what the world wants and keep your natural beauty. I'm no specialist, but I would only guess there might be limited situations where it is medically necessary but for cosmetic reasons? NO! The Risk of surgery side effects? Please, stop the insanity!

    the perfect pussy, is in the eyes of the beholder.

  5. we have always wanted domesticated stars, you will rarely ever see a mainstream actor or actress with any sense of danger….and natural beauty is a myth, scarcity is what determines beauty, we want what few can have, look at art through the ages there is no ideal of beauty that remains constant, it changes to reflect what is hard to achieve.
