Unhappy With Your Gross Vagina? Why Not Try 'The Barbie'?

xlargebarbie.jpg
Labiaplasty — the procedure that clips off portions of a woman's labia minor (the inner lips of her vulva)
so that she looks more like a pristine porn star — is the most common "vaginal rejuvenation" surgery. One Southern California doctor says his most popular procedure is "The Barbie," which whacks out the entire labia minora so that only the outer labia are visible, as smooth as plastic. -- -- Jezabel

Your Say

Alright. I think I get it now. You're employing a mildly perverse modification of McCain's Rule 5, aren't you? I'll bet your hit meter for any given post reflects this, to the embarrassment of us, the hairy browed readers.

Brilliant!

I'm wincing just thinking about that.

Sent the post to my wife: "you're not coming near ME with that procedure!"

Damn. It looks just like the Ken, actually.

Reminds me of something Benoit Mandelbrot, the discoverer of fractals, said:

"Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straight line.... Smooth shapes are very rare in the wild but extremely important in the ivory tower and the factory."

Great, who needs Ismaeli Muslims around in America, women are mangling themselves out of sexual fixation and vanity.

Nothing more than the prep for the 'Great Shari'a' collective aka, 'self-hating' for the ages.

Remember folks, a fixation with lady parts helped turn an election. America is no longer a serious country.

I have, by way of a few "jobs" over the years, befriended a number of young ladies who removed their clothes for the entertainment of their customers. This has led to a number of conversations with them about the appearance of ladyparts. To a woman, they all thought that the "tight and snug" was the ideal, and all thought that exposed minora was "ugly".

Conversation had elicited the fact that most of them, regardless of their deviation from that ideal, had received from men what they believed to be heartfelt compliments on their nether appearance, yet this did not result in any movement in their own feelings for what a woman should look like.

I've known a number of men who think that the Barbie look is not attractive, and who prefer more robust looking vulvae, which leads me to the conclusion that this is essentially a "style" issue. Like their external garments, where women dress up for other women, their intimate appearance norms are controlled by social pressures from other females, not by any sort of male consensus.

And since gay men control the fashion industry, the ironic result is that these women may be submitting the aesthetic preferences of a cohort of vaginaphobes.

Oddly enough, I appreciate a little 'hangage' down there...geez, where does this end?
