I keep hearing that many women have a fear that their vagina is ugly. This seems absurd to me, as the idea of an ugly vagina is complete nonsense to me. Do women really fear this? Furthermore, I've heard from time to time a guy will say they find vaginas ugly. This boggles my mind. I'm curious, any boys or girls willing to admit what they think? (besides me - too late)
Glorious totems of power... sounds pretty awesome, though I've never thought about my own that way (and I'm pretty deeply in love with myself). Really, all I really care about is the option to comfortably pee standing up.
oh dear, but it's not easily kept inside those tight pants we wear, I'd be forced to have a fairly big purse, which I hate, and what about properly washing the thing! No really, it's not an every day option for me. :)
In recent decades, the human body and its parts, or their images, have become objects driven by market forces. Modern civilisation ergo computers have had a great effect of isolation on people.
The young folks growing up today have seen more vaginas on their computer screens than in real life. We as a society have gone past the wall of real life vs virtual reality and sex is what brought us there.
Unfortunately the genitals we see on our computer screens in the form of porn are generally borderline age of consent or cosmetically enhanced. The successful women of porn have very specific genital appearances and in addition are generally devoid of hair so that female genitalia is completely exposed.
I and possibly yourself come from a generation where our sexual expectatations were based in real life. Teens who matured in the computer age have not had the same experience. Today women all over N.America are having surgeries accomplishing vaginal rejuvenation, hymen manufacturing, and peritoneal skin bleaching (and then complain about MJ's bleaching... ha!).
I shutter to think of the loneliness, shame and isolation of tomorrow's women who do not conform to the visual expectations of our genitalia. The internet may educate the masses in some regards but it can also bastardize the masses. There are competing philosophical analysis on the purported "social benefits" brought about by global "internetification".
This BBC documentary focuses on the rise in vaginal cosmetic surgery, specifically labiaplasty. For the uninitiated, labiaplasty involves cutting off the inner labia so that they don’t ‘hang’ below the outer labia. Ouch! The labiaplasty business has skyrocketed over the past few years, and Lisa’s mission was to find out why so many women hate the appearance of their vulvas to the point that they’d willingly have pieces of them surgically removed.
My daughter watched this video and highly recommended it. Haven't had the chance to watch it yet myself.
