Love your pussy!

I was shocked to learn that apparently in the last 10 years the number of women who had through the surgery on their vagina to minimise their labia (labiaplasty) has increased fivefold. Last year, 2000 women had the surgery done on the NHS. And this is just the tip of the iceberg, as there is no data available as to how many women had this surgery done privately.

Sarah Creighton, a clinical gynaecologist at the University College London Hospital, states that there is a massive increase in teenagers and young women who request this surgery even though they have perfectly normal and healthy vaginas. Creighton and clinical psychologist Lih-Mei Liao confirm that one of the reasons why so many women think their vagina is “not normal” is because there are hardly any images of normal vaginas published anywhere that women could look at for reassurance.

Porn usually shows one kind of vagina with very small inner labias, almost like the vagina of a child. I realized how taboo the average vagina of a fully-grown woman is in porn when during the screening of my film “the Female Voyeur” there were gasps in the audience when the full and large inner labia of one of my performers becomes visible. I was surprised because that is how my pussy and the pussy of a lot of my girlfriends looks too.

I got the information on the increase in labiaplasties from the centerfold project. This project created a fantastic animated film about three women who had labiplasties. The film, directed by Ellie Land, features genuine interviews and illustrates these with animated pictures. It is an eye-opener as it makes clear that labiaplasty is no small cosmetic procedure and no quick fix as one of the women who had the procedure hates her pussy just as much as before.

Maybe this woman might have chosen not to have the painful procedure if they had seen the wonderful variety of pussies as documented in the fantastic ground-breaking photo book “Das Tor ins Leben” (The Gate to Life) by Grit Scholz. Or maybe the monumental sculpture “The Great Wall of Vagina” featuring the casts of 400 vaginas from all over the world can inspire other women to love their own unique vagina just the way it is rather than going under the knife. The sculpture features small and large labias, tiny and big clits, pubes and shaved skin – the variety is wonderful. And I am proud to say that one of the many pussies in this sculpture is mine.

Sadly the quest for the ‘perfect pussy’ can come at a high price: Sarah Creighton warned in an article in the British Medical Journal that “Incision to any part of the genitalia could compromise sensitivity!” Don’t risk losing sensitivity in your biggest erogenous zone just for the ‘perfect’ trimmed look but enjoy your pussy in all its magnificence.
