Porn and ‘Barbie Vaginas’

A while ago we wrote a piece about designer vaginas and the growing trend for this. Now some experts are saying that the internet porn is driving the increase in the number of women opting for what they call ‘Barbie vaginas.’

As more people including women watch internet porn, images of striking online models with their shaved vaginas and cosmetic changes increasingly become normalized.

Generally, cosmetic surgery is performed on the vagina in order to change its appearance, using the procedures labiaplasty and vaginoplasty.

In labiaplasty, the labia, or ‘lips’ surrounding the vagina are made smaller, or corrective action carried out to make the labia symmetrical.

With vaginoplasty, the vagina is tightened up because it has become slack, due to childbirth or ageing.

  • There were nearly 100,000 labiaplasty procedures in 2015 across the world.
  • About 50,000 women had the canal of their vaginas tightened known as  vaginal rejuvenation.
  • The procedures however come with health risks such as bleeding, infections and scarring.

Surgery to tighten the vagina in order to improve the experience for the woman and her partner make sense. However, the growing number of women going for the other procudures that enhance the appearance of the vagina is a bit baffling.

When people go for cosmetic surgery to enhance their appearance – nose, face or body – they do so because they want to feel good about themselves. The satisfaction derived from appearance enhancing cosmetic surgery is even greater when you are complemented by others about your appearance.

But when your new cosmetic surgery is not on display for everyone to see as in a designer vagina, then it is unclear what the real motivation and therefore benefits are.
