"...You Can't Just Show up with Inelegant-Looking Labia"

Reader, thank the Maker for the sanity of Kate Harding, who writes for Salon's Broadsheet. Today she jumps into the fray of labioplasty, an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery to change the appearance of the labia, i.e. teenage porn star. A recent British study came out against the practice. In shocking news, plastic surgeons disagreed with their findings. Harding writes:

"Unsurprisingly, Douglas McGeorge, past president of the the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, told the BBC he thinks the concern is "over the top. Essentially this is just about removing a bit of loose flesh, leaving behind an elegant-looking labia with minimum scarring." Oh, well if that's all it is! I mean, obviously, if you want to be taken seriously at a job interview or get a decent table at a hot restaurant, you can't just show up with inelegant-looking labia."

Bwahhahahahaha! Love her! You can catch the whole article here.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, there isn't one female body part that's just fine as is. Just so we're on the same page.

Well, just the other day, I was walking by and I heard a woman ask her boyfriend "do my labia make me look fat?" So there probably is a need for that surgery.

Ha! I was wondering if there was a male equivalent for oversize/saggy balls. There is:

Now everyone can look like a porn star, yay!
