The Great Wall of…Well it’s not China!

In recent years a group of surgeries that constitute a “Designer Vagina” have become more popular. If you have the money and the desire you can have your whole downstairs reconstructed purely for your own enjoyment. These surgeries include vaginoplasty, labiaplasty, “revirgination,” clitoral unhooding, and G-spot amplification. There isn’t any guarantee that it will enhance your sex life, but it may be the confidence booster some women desperately seek. Even though there are numerous risks associated with these surgeries there has been an increase in the amount of participants. Jamie McCartney is trying to change that. McCartney is a British artist who cast molds of 400 different vagina’s and made a wall out of it. These molds prove that vagina’s are more complex and differentiated than faces. You can look at the vagina’s of twin sisters or mother and daughter and the similarities are purely anatomical. There are transgenders on this wall as well as a vagina that is pre and post labiaplasty. So what’s the point of changing your vagina because it looks different just so it can still look different? Mine sure doesn’t look like any on that wall and I can bet yours doesn’t either.
