Guernica’s Kristen O’Regan went undercover as a woman seeking a labiaplasty to investigate the world of vaginal rejuvenation, a field of surgery which is “relatively unregulated and frequently botched, as indicated by the staggering number of clinics that advertise discreet revisions of bungled previous surgeries.” One of her many disturbing discoveries was a that a procedure called “The Barbie”is growing in popularity:
Dr. Red Alinsod, a urogynecologist in Laguna Beach, California, claims that his most requested surgical procedure is the Barbie: a procedure that excises the entire labia minora. This results in a ‘clamshell’ aesthetic: a smooth genital area, the outer labia appearing ‘sealed’ together with no labia minora protrusion. Alinsod tells me he invented the Barbie in 2005. “I had been doing more conservative labiaplasties before then,” he says. “But I kept getting patients who wanted almost all of it off. They would come in and say, I want a ‘Barbie.’ So I developed a procedure that would give them this comfortable, athletic, petite look, safely.”

Yesterday, after playing basketball with two of my guy friends, we took a trip to Walmart. I was walking ahead looking for a cart when I noticed my dude friends looking sort of bewildered. Lost, even. I called out to them to hurry up and they staggered towards me like they were drunk or had been hit over the head. That’s when I saw her. Well, perhaps I should say that’s when I saw it. I will admit, it was rather tantalizing. It big and round, moved side to side on its own accord, as if trying to hypnotize onlookers.

“With an ass like that, no wonder he put a ring on it,” said one of my friends, a college-educated Wall Street banker, referring to the woman who had just passed with her husband. I was frozen, partially in disgust, but mostly in amazement. For my guy friends, the simple fact that this lady had an abnormally well-rounded behind was the most important reason why her husband wanted to marry her. Keep reading »
Ladies, it’s time we start embracing our vaginas and stop letting money hungry clinics, offering vaginal cosmetic surgery, dictate what makes a beautiful vajayjay. The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recently warned that the trend of “designer vaginas” may be exploiting vulnerable women. Women in Australia, New Zealand, Britain and the U.S. have been trekking to these vagina spas to have vaginal rejuvenation, re-virgination, designer vaginoplasty and G-spot amplification. But the college said these procedures lack scientific backing and are dangerous and expensive–one procedure can cost as much as $9,500. The surgeries can also do more harm than good. Keep reading »
Oh Roseanne! You so crazy! The “comedian” stopped by Craig Ferguson’s show last night and told him all about having vaginal rejuvenation surgery. We like to believe this is about as true as her singing the National Anthem was musically supreme. Keep reading »
