Documentary: “The Perfect Vagina”

31 Mar

[Trigger warning for body hatred miscellany. Warning for some graphic images of surgery.]

No, it’s not a perfect, radical-feminist-y film. And, yes, it should be ‘vulva’ instead of ‘vagina’. It’s still worth a watch if your emotional fortitude allows.

    My friend and I we talking about this tonight. She was saying how a anal tag from haemorrhiods had left her feeling bad about having sex with someone (PIV as she is a het). My reply was oh and those two sacks hanging below the penis are just oh so gorgeous! Testicles never smell, aren’t wrinkly and are so symmetrical. Which made us laugh and made her rethink.

    It is impossible for women to have perfect bodies. This is major surgery and it cuts through nerve endings. This surgery contributes to the objectification of the woman. Woman becomes a collection of perfect parts, perfect boobs, perfect vulva, perfect face. The reality is that this is never achieved. It can only be so on altered images.

    How are these women ever going to face middle age – which for everyone starts at 38/40?

    The NHS woman did spell it out – adult females trying to look like children, which they won’t achieve. Of course, this trend is all brought on by porn-pressure.

    I had seen this documentary a few years ago (have only rewatched part of it at this stage, the rest later).

    What creeped me out about the ‘vulva wall’ was that a dude was doing it.

      Yeah, that wall. The fact that a dude came up with the idea/was carrying it out himself really changes its meaning for me. Otherwise, I think it’s a pretty good project.

        yep, that’s it exactly.

    I watched the whole thing last night, and what horrified me the most was when the doctor *held up the labia he just butchered* and pulled at it saying “see it’s like elastic”.

    Right in front of the poor woman he inflicted pain and distress on.

      I agree. After watching the video, that was the moment I kept reflecting back on. He had just whacked off a perfectly healthy part of Rosie’s body, then was playing with it like it was simply a rubber toy. I’m certain that’s how he viewed her labia before he whacked it off, too.

    Grown women catering to pedophilia urges. I am nauseous. Hairless and smaller.
    Show a pornsick man (/all men) a photo of a 4 year old vulva and there will be arousal. Where is the outrage? Where are the pissed off women? Radical Feminist takeover is long overdue.
