The perfect vagina from heather leach on Vimeo.

I’ve never had a problem with my lady parts so this really was never an issue for me. But apparently, a growing number of women are resorting to surgery to alter the looks of their vaginas. I had heard about women in the Muslim community having their hymens tightened to give the appearance of virginity. While I don’t condone that practice, I am even more horrified that women in the Western world would voluntarily go through a harrowing experience of altering the most intimate parts of their bodies. I cringed as I watched one young woman in this video go through the excruciating pain of having her labia trimmed after being teased by former lovers and her own sister (some sister!). It’s an eye-opening documentary, and one that will make you question- at what lengths should we go for beauty?
