Is your vagina pretty?

Leave a comment

Labiaplasty is an operation women can get to have their inner labias trimmed or cut completely off. Women that go through this $4,000 plus surgery feel like their vaginas are not up to pare with our societies porn industry women. Having an outrageous operation so you may look like a porn star is a bit extreme if you ask me. Women are all beautiful and in my opinion, all genitalia no matter who it is on is not “pretty” with or without an expensive surgery. Our body parts are meant for a purpose, those regions help produce beautiful babies and to give both women and men pleasure. Why does something that has such a valuable purpose have to be attractive? It’s not like other people will be looking at it 24/7. I think getting a Labiaplasty is a dangerous move for women. Labias are meant to help keep bacteria out of the vaginal area, without those women risk getting more serious infections that normally would be easily treated, such has a urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted diseases, etc. Not only is this surgery potentially risky but having it available on the market shows women that it is okay to want to brutalize their bodies to fit into a socially constructed view of beauty. I personally do not agree with anyone who receives or does these operations.
