‘Normal’ Vaginas Don’t Exist - and We Love It!
The Designer Vagina
Whilst breast, bum and lip implants are now becoming part of a daily routine for a number of celebrity ‘icons’, the next body modification trend comes in the form of surgically altering the vulval tissues - labiaplasty. Despite specific cases that require the procedure, most labiaplasty has derived from the idea of a ‘designer vagina’; although this has become apparently favourable amongst some women, we believe that the intimate area deserves to be embraced for its uniqueness, not modified.
As genital modification began hitting headlines in late 2018, researchers decided to look into what constitutes a ‘normal’ vagina. Unsurprisingly, the study concluded that there’s so much variety in terms of appearance amongst healthy vulvas, a so-called normal one doesn’t actually exist (Health, 2018). The study analysed 657 completely healthy women between the ages of 15 and 84, and measured the distance between the clitoris and labia. The results from the experiment displayed no recurring theme, therefore unless for aesthetic purposes, nobody needs the designer vagina. If you do have any sensitivity downstairs, YES has an array of vaginal moisturisers, lubricants and cleansing washes that are specifically designed to protect against bacterial and yeast infections, as well as hydrating and moisturising the intimate tissues.
So why are women so concerned about the appearance of their vaginas?
