Her vagina looks like roast beef curtains. His penis resembles a melting meat popsicle.
When I read or hear comments that regard someone’s genitalia as unsightly, my instinctual response is to say, “no way.” We are all different, but we are all beautiful. Right? Wrong.
I have always wondered if there was such a thing as an unattractive vagina. A quick survey with male colleagues made it clear that looks below the belt matter.
“Yes, there is definitely such a thing as an ugly vagina,” said one man. “It can look like ground meat.”
“Loose skin down there definitely is a big turn off,” another man mentioned.
To be fair, I also asked women about penises and they were equally critical of the male sex organ.
“Discoloration, veins and wrinkles are gross,” one woman said. “Also, please trim the ball hair.”
“An ugly penis is crooked or the head doesn’t look right,” another woman pointed out.
I think pornography is a big factor in unrealistic expectations of what we perceive normal, healthy genitals to be. Visual erotica is full of perfectly trimmed, pink vaginas, while images of extra labia skin and large clitorises, other than on fetish sites, are nearly nonexistent.
Men also become bombarded with imagery of smooth, straight penises that measure to impressive lengths and are surrounded by little hair.
Because of the pressure to look good in the bedroom, more people are turning to genital surgery. The other day, I saw an online ad for vaginoplasty, an unusual cosmetic procedure that can superficially enhance the look of a person’s privates. Genital plastic surgery rose 30 percent in 2006, according to an article from the National Sexuality Resource Center. Men can also change their penis’ aesthetics by having a phalloplasty, which is the enlargement or enhancement of the penis.
If you are self-conscious about how your genitals look, I recommend skipping expensive surgeries and, instead, work on building body confidence. Get to know the area by examining it in a mirror or by touching yourself. Appreciate the fact your intimates are sources for personal pleasure, making love and creating life.
Though my research showed me looks do matter to some, I was pleased to find out, overall, people didn’t care about what their significant other had going on down under.
“If it gives you the ride of your life, don’t drop a guy just because the penis is not good looking,” someone said. “It’s there for a purpose, not a pose.”
Many of the guys I asked said, if they cared about the woman, what her private parts looked like was completely irrelevant.
After all, it’s not the vagina that has the personality.
