Brazilian waxing leads women to seek plastic surgery
« on: January 21, 2013, 07:58:15 pm »
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Radio National has a show called The Body Sphere. A recent episode examined the trend of the Brazilian wax (removal of all pubic hair in women, which is now almost universal in Australia for women under 30) and also touched on the trend of women whose labia minora protrude further than their labia majora to seek plastic surgery:

"There are laws in Australia and similar ones in the UK and the US that say that an image will get an X rating if it shows genitals in an explicit way.  That’s usually interpreted by image makers to mean full frontal for men or for women to mean pink bits showing, if you like.

Now given that at least 50% of women have labia minora that protrude further than their labia majora this means that if those women have had a Brazilian wax then their labia minora are going to be on display; even if they are just standing up straight, so even if they are not in any sort of sexually explicit pose.  So for fear of having those images X rated we got image makers using photo shop to get rid of those pink bits and then that in turn led to a whole lot of women seeing that every image of a woman’s vulva in the press didn’t include any labia minora, and therefore coming to the conclusion that perhaps their own vulvas were abnormal in some way. And going off to have them fixed. And of course cosmetic surgeons absolutely jumped on that and have completely fed that beast with a whole lot of propaganda about women’s self esteem."
