How delusional. Most guys are so excited to see one they don't care what it looks like.

Because the stuff they've been posting over there up til now hasn't earned them a front page link yet. (BTW, in case you were wondering, jezebel.com no longer has anything to do with Heather Champ.)

In all seriousness, though, vaginoplasty is not a joke and to be honest if I was a woman I wouldn't hestitate a second to have my lips augmented to the size of manta ray wings that I would use to propel me through the air like one of those flying dinosaur bird things.

Surely this line should have been 'I have no beef with my beef curtains'

/Y’know, if you actually go and READ The Godfather, there’s a whole bunch of interesting stuff going on in there about vaginal plastic surgery. It concerns mostly Lucy (the bridesmaid Sonny was ‘nailing’ (proper term for standing up sex against the wall in the Italian-American community, the Brit’s use the futher term ‘Tremblers’ to reference one’s legs during the act, and indeed, there was a punk band that had that very name...but I digress)) and this doctor from Vegas and was wisely cut from the movie, but it’s a nifty exposition of social mores surrounding that kind of thing, most particularly from the old school 50’s-60’s perspective.
Interesting to see the complete reversal in that state of affairs, and yet the underlying misogyny remains.

Hey corpse in the library, I kept looking for you in that Pirate thread a few days ago. Surely you could have given the definitive answer on pirate morality.

And if you like vulva, I think this will sit well with you.

Hi serazin -- the pirate thread was overwhelming. I spent too long trying to come up with something to say, and by then things had become so serious. I'm here for the jokes, not the Marxism. (Jokes about Marxism, on the other hand...)

Those puppets make me realize I'm not as comfortable with lady parts as I thought I was.

Still, not as bad as the G-Shot. I'm still having nightmares about that one.

Metafilter is such a girlzone.

Anyway, I've seen several in my life, and several thousand if you count photography/pornography, and I've yet to see one that I would have changed a thing.

They are all unique and beautiful, like snowflakes.

Something about that Jezebel site annoys the shit out of me. I've recently found myself clicking over to that site from "via" tags on some of my more favorite blogs.

I can't shake the feeling that it reads like the kind of blog that might have been written by the girls in high school that wore bust-exposing, cleavage-heavy shirts and made PG-13-style sex jokes but once the jokes I reciprocated actually get funny and R-rated, suddenly a line was crossed that they weren't ready for, and somehow the bust-exposing upper body wear was incidental and I'd be a pervert for noticing.

Case in point :
"Eww! Sperm"

"Ew! A strange new sex toy! And OMG A JESUS JOKE!"

"Porn? What's that? And do women actually.. ya know... watch it? Ewww!"

I haven't read this article yet, but my money's on it being "OMG EW! Vaginas!"

"Pimp My Vag."

Isn't this where slang turns back on itself? Doesn't "Pimp my vag" mean "I'm a prostitute"?

[NSFW!! Here NSFW!!] are before and after pictures of labiaplasties, via the article. I needed to know, but choose your own adventure.

I'm a little surprised that some woman would have issues about the presentation of her labia. Mostly because it's not a functional upgrade by any means - it's purely cosmetic. And as far as eyeball accessibility, the labia is pretty much the final frontier; most people (including the labia owner) don't get to see it on a consistent enough basis to form much of an opinion on it. Maybe if you've got some extra baggage down there such that you can't wear excitingly skimpy swim wear, cuz every time a bit of lip starts breaking loose from either side and starts waggling about in the wind and you absolutely will not reign in this kind of excess dangle by any other means... I guess you can get the $4900 surgery. But who else is going to appreciate your new look besides your gyno? From whom and what kind of compliments are being sought? "Hey, didya just trim the fringes down below? Killer lips, girl! Super streamlined!"

i think it's for this guy:

He calls out his 17 year old daughter's name in bed and he likes underage porn! What is going on with this guy?

the pictures of the pre-post surgery were horrible. Why is it that people are so upset by 'clitorectomies'? This is your own country and culture, you have a hell of a lot more chance of stopping this than what happens in northern africa...

I am afraid this surgery forgets the important physiological function of having a little bulk down there -- it is so women don't whistle like flutes during windstorms.

For some reason this cracked me up:
The first time, I went to a male doctor, the second time I visited a female doctor, and for my final consultation, I sought the opinion of a pornographer—Mitch Fontaine of Burning Angel. He told me that my vagina was charming. But I sort of knew that anyway.

Never before have I thought of the term "dented clam".

Vulva. Vulva vulva vulva. V-U-L-V-A. Not vagina. Vulva.

If enough people are taught as kids to say "vagina" instead of "vulva" (as I was by my mom, who's been a registered nurse for the last 30 years), then guess what? "Vagina" wins. (Some may argue that vagina ALWAYS wins, but that is another debate for another thread.)

Language is supposed to evolve over time...
