I would hate for her...

X-Post MsV also apologies for getting your name wrong.

MsVestibule Fri 18-Jan-13 22:48:27

Spuddybean shock, just shock.

meadow2*, your post has cheered me up no end, honestly.

What the fucking fuck???

I remember about 10 years ago looking up pictures of genital piercings (trying to decide which ones I could physically get), and it was fantastic to look at this huge variety and know that I was utterly normal. They were like fingerprints, no two were the same! How fucked up is it that women and men have been sold this idea of what genitals should look like?! There is no should about it! Can you imagine someone saying, "your fingerprint is wrong, it needs to look like someone elses"? We're all individuals, why on earth should we look like we've rolled off a production line?!

shock

if my dh ever said anything negative about my bits id kick him in his

its shocking that there are girls out there that are thinking their fanjos arent normal angry i mean wtf??

See thats the thing with womens vulvas/vaginas, most women only encounter them in porn.
So the first fanny you see is likely to be bald,bleached and fuck knows what.

My Aunt told me to get a mirror and have alook and tbh I was horrified/fascinated at the same time.
I knew mines didn,t look anything like the vaginas in brothers jazz mags.

We all see male genitals represented in art etc, but never a full on out there vagina/vulva.

Only breasts are bandied about and critiqued.

Maybe I,ll join Loquace and flash mine.Just wear a t-shirt with the legend
THIS IS A REALITY VAGINA grin

Still can,t believe people bleach their arse holes, why?

Darkesteyes Fri 18-Jan-13 23:15:59

The worlds gone fucking mad. Ive never had a bikini wax in my life. And ive never encountered the "Hollander attitude" personally.
My relationships have been with men quite a bit older than me though so maybe thats part of the reason.

I naturally have no labia minora, I wonder if I went to that surgeon if he'd be offering to carve me some nice new flaps out of my earlobes of something? or a flap transplant from some poor woman getting hers lopped off? hmm It wouldn't surprise me, seems they'll do anything for the money! Very immoral.

Loquace Sat 19-Jan-13 00:55:28

Loquace havent you seen the daytime TV advert

No, blimming Italian telly not selling me vaggie things. Although, not true actually now I think of it, an alarming amount of Italian women appear to have a terrible urge to inform all their freinds with sad face that they can't go for an appertivo, cos their fluffy bits itch. Then freinds take them to the chemist, a tube of pink cream dances, and everybody smiles and drinks digusting flavoured horrible non alcoholic orange coloured shit in celebration.

Oh and there is special fluffy bits soap called "Chilly", which I find a bit off putting as a name actually.

<flashes thread with aged fluffy bits, complete with labia minor>

Don't panic! I just bideted them. Have got some standards grin

Why do people bleach their bums? Well it got popular in porn from what I hear. So the bum blends in with the rest of the skin tones.

I point blank refuse to go into doggy style for a beutician. And that is before we add the chemicals to anus issues I harbour.

I tell you what, don't envy beauticians these days. Images of relaxing facials replaced with the world shoving their bumhole at you so you can flay it with wax and then give it a nice chemical burn.

Dear God, just five minutes ago we were burning our bras and now we are frying our anuses, chopping off our butterflies and blowing our boobies up to massive proportions.

I think a wrong turn was taken somewhere.

BunFagFreddie Sat 19-Jan-13 05:19:09

Sweet Jesus. What the hell does that surgeon mean by giving it a more athletic look? How is that athletic. When I imagine an athletic snatch it involves a Thai lady and a ping pong ball. The size of the inner labia is irrelevant. confused

I'm beyond shocked, but also very glad that I don't care what my minge looks like.

And yy, hairy ones are an endagered species.

I am shock - when people said bum bleaching I thought they meant hair bleaching, a bit of Jolen instead of waxing, but they actually bleach their bum skin??! I hope I have misunderstood....

BunFagFreddie Sat 19-Jan-13 07:55:47

Yeah, they actually bleach the devil's eye! shock

TroublesomeEx Sat 19-Jan-13 07:58:39

I am astounded. I have begun to 'trim and edge' and think I'm a bit radical for that!

I mean they're not pretty things. They're not really supposed to be. But I had no idea it was something else I was supposed to feel inadequate about.

<adds imperfect genitals to list of insecurities>

meadow2 Sat 19-Jan-13 08:01:50

All this is not really common though.When I had mine done the dr said he didnt really see many people who have had it done unless there is a medical reason.Also its not like in rl anyone knows anyone whos had their bum bleached.

Also yes ms vestibule definitely dont think in rl everyone removes all their pubic hair.The only time I have known everyone under 35 is meant to be doing it is on here.

shock shock shock

Surely there's got to be a backlash coming against this sort of thing?
Glad to hear meadow as a token younger than 30 saying that this is not necessarily representative - these things do tend to get blown out of proportion

oh no that sounded awful, I didn't mean you are a token young person, I meant you're the only one who has identified yourself as so, so I'm taking your comments as being on behalf...
<stops digging>
<hands over spade>

MsVestibule Sat 19-Jan-13 08:43:48

SPB I really should stop assuming that any info I receive on MN are true facts! And I hope any backlash starts before my DD starts becoming bothered by this sort of thing. Will also have to make sure DS knows women come in all shapes and sizes, and shock horror, may have furry bits.

Meadow2 I can well believe that anal bleaching isn't common, and cosmetic surgery on one's labia even less so, but it bothers me that it's even available! As with a lot of these things, what starts out as a rarity fairly quickly becomes commonplace.

Branleuse Sat 19-Jan-13 08:53:37

Is it really something thats in danger of becoming the norm, or something that girls feel pressurised to do? It makes me wince, but Im not particularly worried that girls are now going to feel they need to go and get themselves circumcised

BunFagFreddie Sat 19-Jan-13 09:08:41

Even if someone had gone and had anal bleaching, would they tell anyone?

What's wrong with having our bits as nature intended?

Loquace Sat 19-Jan-13 09:22:51

Even if someone had gone and had anal bleaching, would they tell anyone?

Well it used to be if you Quant-ed your pubes you didn't shout about it, was a bit "racy" grin Not so much these days where there are threads all,over the web between women discussing their personal topary for all to see.

Just start a thread "is your pubis a baldy?" People rush to reveal all.

So, dunno, maybe anal bleaching started as a personal secret for lovers only but will become something women discuss over a coffee...

"must dash, have to go turn my choclate spider back to vanilla again, Joleen managed to fit me in between a permenant vajazzle, and a clit "perfect colour" tattoo and she'll get the hump if I'm late. Laters!"

BunFagFreddie Sat 19-Jan-13 09:35:27

"must dash, have to go turn my choclate spider back to vanilla again,

Thanks, that gave a very grumpy woman a good chuckle this mornning. grin

ErikNorseman Sat 19-Jan-13 09:38:37

It's gross, and really sad. 'Clam shell'? Ie prepubescent, like a baby's vulva? Hairless and puffy with no gross adult bits? Foul. Do people not understand what this trend means?
