Refuse to be genitally mutilated: Female Genital Mutilation v Vaginal Surgery

Men love vaginas: their shapes and taste and everything about them. Some even know what to do with them. We all know how evil female genital mutilation is. None of the girls and women have a choice but why conform to a man made vagina just to please men? There is no perfect vagina and the only thing that matters to men is making love.

To those considering Labia Reduction Surgery this procedure is not without their risks, among them haemorrhage, infection, loss of sensitivity, lingering pain from nerve damage. Besides you are violating yourselves.

I think this is a way of preying on vulnerable women. Vaginal tightening has been done for decades to help women with extremely compromised vaginal integrity. For the even fewer women out there with true genital “deformities” — extraordinarily long or protruding labia, for example, or excessive vaginal flesh — surgery has also been an option for years, but having surgery just to please a man is bizarre. Like FGM a very unnecessary procedure. Men don’t care how the vagina looks. So why go through the pain.

Types of Vaginal Surgery

The main types of vaginal surgery available in the UK are:

Labiaplasty or labia/lip reduction, sometimes also called vulvaplasty, where the labia minora or inner vaginal lips can be reduced in size and reshaped.

Vaginoplasty or vaginal rejuvenation/tightening, where the inner vagina walls and muscles can be reshaped and tightened to produce a more toned and tight vagina.

Hymenoplasty, or hymen repair/re-virgination, where a torn hymen is repaired or rebuilt to imply the virginal state of a women; this is most frequently done for religious, ethnic or cultural reasons with the utmost discretion.

What are the risks and potential complications from Vaginal Surgery?

Like all surgical procedures, there is always a possibility of complications or side effects and, although rare, these can include infection (such as urinary tract infections), a reaction to the anesthesia, blood or fluid collection underneath the skin (hematoma), prolonged bleeding, nerve damage, and an irregular or a “lop-sided” appearance to the labia after the operation.

Following labiaplasty and vaginoplasty, urinating post-surgery may be difficult and somewhat painful, due to the burning/stinging sensation caused by the urine passing over the wound. This can be alleviated by either urinating in the shower, or by pouring a jug of lukewarm water over the area as one urinates in the toilet.

  1. I have dependably had exorbitantly long inward labia which had been creating me a few issues, soreness when wearing tight pants, nipping when wearing thong
