Question Female Genital Enhancement?

has anyone here heard of labiaplasty? i read a piece in the july 2007 allure magazine about labiaplasty becoming a very popular elective surgical procedure. during labiaplasty, the inner or outer lips of the vag-jay-jay are "reduced." supposedly it's becoming popular bcs of trends like brazilian waxes and porn becoming more mainstream. also, some women complain that the natural state of their nethers makes life difficult, whether in terms of the horizontal hunka chunka or wearing jeans.

i won't post the link here, but you can look up christine hamori. she's a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in two types of labiaplasty as well as hood reduction. she has computer animation as well as before and after pics (yes, they are explicit).

interestingly enough, jennifer berman, the sister of a well known sexual therapist, laura berman, is a surgeon who also does this type of surgery.

i'm interested to see what you all think about labiaplasty. would you consider it for yourself or ask your other half to do it? have you ever seen a vagjayjay that you thought maybe needed a lil trimming, and not of the hedges? or do you think this is another crazy, frivolous surgical "intervention?"

I first heard of this about 3 or 4 years ago. it's mostly cosmetic, as you sorta alluded too, but I don't think it has anything to do with Brazilian bikinis or waxes--mostly a matter of intimacy.

While it is true that the picture of an underwearless 'starlett' (I forget which one) accidentally showing her shaved pubic area while getting out of a car did reming me of vaginal 'bingowings', I don't think that I'll be either shaving off the hairs or the excess flaps, thank you very much.

I hadn't heard of that one yet, but I did see a segment on cable about treatments to lighten the skin in that area with a bleaching agent. Ouch.

After my first baby was born, the doctor offered my husband a chance to 'enjoy himself after the birth'...and offered to stitch me up 'snugly' for the purpose of pleasure. I told him to nevermind about that, as I was planning on more kids and didn't want to rip every time.

Exclamation Re: Female Genital Enhancement?

I've always appreciated "The Natural" look, of all types of women.
Being a hippie with a hair cut myself. I would never ask my wife to change anything, as a matter of fact I don't like it too much when she messes with her natural Afro! On her head or... HaHa!

If it's a necessary proceedure, go for it. But...
It's too bad some people are so unhappy with their appearance that they actually have surgery to "fix" it. I wish I had grown to a foot taller, a little longer'd be nice too, but I ams what I ams.

What a curious world my daughters grow up in.

I think the concept is gross (I think the same way re: breast implants). I cannot imagine reducing flesh by a cm or an inch or whatever would be worth the bucks and would make life So Different™.

So I Yahoo'd labiaplasty, read about the surgery, viewed the before and after pictures and can only endorse this procedure if it's to alleviate any discomfort. As with any decision in having cosmetic surgery, much of the decision-making involves more emotional and mental aspects rather than aesthetics.

Unless it's for a valid medical reason, labiaplasty is a probably another "crazy, frivolous, surgical intervention." To me, it seems like a Western version of "female circumcision" (aka "female genital cutting" or "female genital mutilation").

I love curtains because they are fun to play with.

tumbleweed? I love that too..
Too many chicks are copying the porn star bald look. Not cool imo. I like a nice trimmed bush.

I find this one of the more disturbing aspects of the relentless message in our modern society which dictates that there are "better" ways to look and that self-improvement can be found in a plastic surgeons office. On a more unsavory note, what is up with the idealization of pubescent-appearing genitalia in adult women? Pretty creepy.

Not just the women btw, although I don't think it's an attempt to mimic pre-pubescence any more than women who like clean shaven men really go in for young boys.

People who don't believe nature can be improved on shouldn't wear shoes IMO.

Unless you're generating a sound that is similar to baseball cards in bicycle spokes (thwapitta-thwapitta-thwapitta) I say leave the flappers be.

I suppose if you are tripping over the flowing drapery surgery might be considered. Or not---you could always offer your services to incubate an orphaned penguin egg.

OMG...you all are cracking me up here! LMAO I kind of like having some extra padding protecting my vajayjay area even though I admit to having taking a weedwacker to it once in a while (but like all weeds, it grows back!).

There will be no blades of any kind anywhere near that area for me! That includes scissors and razors. All skin remains in tact unless there is a medical need to do otherwise. And, either take some ibuprofen and rip the bush out by the roots or leave it be!

Razors and scissors mean pokey and itchy bush branches! Did I effectively avoid the "naughty" radar?

Correct term: Bushwhacker. Not Weedwhacker.

There is a point where landscaping can become scarily out of control. Especially unattractive with a swimsuit.

While attempting to surface during a Molokini snorkel adventure my husband came face-to-crotch with a frighteningly overgrown example of neglected shrubbery bursting through the legholes of a lady's swimsuit. Lady attached, of course.

Best described as a map-o-Tazzie with mutton chops.

All that porn featuring "clean shaven men"? They aren't marketed towards women.

I've never met a red-blooded woman who wanted her man to trim his tar--I cannot even finish my sentence. Just ain't right.

I'm guessing that the "naughty radar" has been temporarily disabled, or perhaps is just being ignored by the power-that-be unless this thread gets too, you know, hairy.
Like everyone else reading this thread, I've been laughing my (unshaven) a** off!

I did a guy with a straight razor one time back in the day. He'd heard that it was way good sans fuzz but didn't trust his girlfriend to do it without slicing and dicing him.

And no...nothing grew but the size of his eyes the closer the razor got.
