To be horrified by vaginal rejuvenation

Someone at work is having it done! With a laser! Which beats the rusty razor blade endured by terrified little girls in countries where women are second class citizens. However, it seems to me that hacking at your bits to make yourself tighter for a man is really a more sanitised version of female circumcision. There was some talk of labia reduction too. Can one have too much labia? Please tell me I am not being unreasonable to have been shocked.

It's vile and unnecessary. Lady bits should be left as they are unless there's a medical problem.

It's the pornification of everyday life again. It worries me deeply what messages young women in particular are taking on board about their own bodies. Also the seemingly increasing message that sex is done 'to' women for men's pleasure.

I read a lot about young people and sex/sexuality/popular culture as I have a young pre-teen and I find all of this stuff highly disturbing.

A quick trim of your chuff to stop it poking out of your swimming cossie is one thing but this - vile, vile, vile.

Well yabu a bit...

All vulvas are different and some people do have issues with their labia being too large. It can be uncomfortable. I'd definitely not have any issue with them getting that looked at.

Re: Making yourself tighter for a man.... is that really why she is doing it? Confidence in ones self is a glorious thing. Knowing that you're not going to wee when you sneeze might also by a deciding factor.

Without knowing the motive behind the surgery- yabu for being judgey.

A fanny facelift? No thanks.
