SBS is showing a doco on Friday night called The Perfect Vagina. They are promoting it as:
In an age where boob jobs, liposuction, tummy tucks and botox are now commonplace it would seem that women have found a new part of the body to worry about … their vaginas.
Surgery that promises better-looking vaginas has become one of the fastest growing areas of plastic surgery and in the last year the number of vaginal cosmetic operations performed on British women has almost tripled. But many people argue that this latest trend is personal vanity gone too far. In this documentary our female author – fascinated by the fact that women will mutilate their vaginas all in the name of beauty – will go on a mission to find out why, despite still being a huge taboo, women have suddenly become so obsessed with this part of their body.
Shame they didn’t call it The Perfect Vulva, because that’s what’s getting sliced.
Seems a big step backwards from the Hungry Beast story revealing that censorship is making women feel their vulvas aren’t pretty enough.
You know, I think my vagina and vulva are perfect. They work, and they look just fine, thankyouverymuch.
