There are women who WANT FGM?

There are people who want this? Wtf?!

Is this even the real world? Am I in some whack-job's drug-induced dream?

Regretsy ran a piece on this. Linked to a site with 'before and after' pictures. Very surreal.

This may make me seem terribly naive, but how often does a person look at their own vulva? How do you even get the idea that this is a thing, let alone a thing that you need?

For some women, it's not a matter of aesthetics, although that's part of it, but a matter of comfort. As long as we're being graphic, some labias are very long and women are uncomfortable sitting. They get pinched or form blisters from rubbing. So there's that.

I don't really get putting a hymen back. That seems a bit silly. Also, one can have a healthy, happy, sex life without having a G spot orgasm. I don't think I'd risk surgery for that.

Here's a really cute and sensitive film about labiaplasty.that I saw a couple months ago.

or here if it doesn't come up.

With the acceptance of aesthetic cosmetic surgery, is this really unexpected?

OK, if you have a situation where you're experiencing discomfort, this seems sensible enough. In any field of plastic surgery, there are going to be procedures that are just to correct problems, or improve function. But that's unusual enough that it's not fueling all of this. Like I say, I saw the before and after pictures, and none of the 'befores' made me think "Oh, that poor gal, that looks uncomfortable".

Ya gotta figure. Most plastic surgeries done in Beverly Hills are probably cosmetic, but I've been reading about this over the last few months and many of the women do complain of discomfort. Of course, I have no idea of knowing how much is corrective or cosmetic.

I hate to be on the fence about cosmetic surgery. Part of me says, "Do what makes you feel good." The other part is wrapped up in feminism; either changing yourself to please men or lacking self-confidence because of men/body image/media images. In the end, I mostly feel that any surgery has potential dangers, which stops me personally from cosmetic surgery.
