What Is Pussy Pumping?

pumping technology

Female pumping is a sexual practice in which ladies participate in vacuum pumping their genitalia. The practice has now stretched out to different parts of the body and can be including the vacuum pumping of the breasts, nipples, clitoris, and labiaas well as any other body part that you’d like to apply it to. Suction containers and cylinders can be applied to virtually any part of the body, and in some cases even between people making for some interesting combinations and techniques.

 

 

Some people will find considerable pleasure through the act of pumping. Considering that men have been pumping up their penises for many years both in regards to providing sexual pleasure and in the treatment of male sexual dysfunction, its little wonder that women have picked up the ball and started on the pumping trend themselves. There’s even the ancient Chinese act of cupping which has numerous health benefits which we will explore in another article on this website. Women’s pumping, for the most part provides new spotlights onto the body. Female sex and sexuality has long been regarded as a mystery in comparison to men. It was only in the past few decades where women have been allowed to openly embrace their sexuality without societal judgement. Vibrators and sexual aides are becoming accepted and less taboo, and Adult Stores are changing their looks and images in order to cater to the female clientele. With the stigma breaking down, women are becoming more interested in the idea of fetish and more obscure sexual practices and this is inclusive of pumping.

Throughout time, and since the advent of the internet whereby we can place content on the internet through articles and images there has been a surge in all things obscure and fetish like. Indeed, there are now adult films and sites specialising in all sorts of wonderful fetishes such as fat sex, cougar sex, and even more out there ones such as mechanophilia. This has included pumping, with a range of places now dedicated to pumped up labia’s, extra-large clitorises, and BDSM sites dedicated to pumping and suction play. Suction and pumping play is not something that everyone can understand, and as such is often considered to be one of the more unique sexual practices in the world in the sense that it doesn’t necessarily involve orgasm or ejaculation, but simply is an enhancement of sexual pleasure through the stimulation of the genitalia. This sees a lot of people receiving sexual gratification from the participation of such an activity, which is partially why it’s so popular.

Suction, and the use of vacuum pressure on the body is not something that is new. It has been found in ancient practices all over the world including China which has used cupping for the healing treatment of sore muscles and body aches and pains. In the early nineties, and perhaps even before that, we started to explore the benefits of female pumping. This is despite the first penis pump being developed in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Someone, somewhere had realised the pumps were working on men, so why not try it on themselves? From there, it exploded as people began to realise the benefits that clitoral pumping had. The most notable being that the extra blood flow which was being drawn into the genital tissues were bringing extra oxygen and nutrients to the nerves and thus helping them increase their sensitivity.

 

 

We know that the advantages of female pumping are clear, we know that the vacuum and suction increases blood flow and oxygen to the nerves of the genitals. This increased blood flow from the resulting vacuum activates the nerves and increases sensitivity, making it much easier for women who had previously had difficulty reaching orgasms to achieve an orgasm more often. Indeed, the utilization of vacuum pumps is being used with the treatment of anorgasmia and other women’s sexual dysfunction. Women who partake in the activity of pumping up their clitoris and or labia find that they’re receiving far greater stimulation and sensation than before as well as becoming more sexually aroused as they see and recognise the changes that are taking place. One of the main reasons as to this arousal is the centre of attention that has been placed onto the female.

By this we mean that research has suggested that women have a tendency to become more mentally and physically aroused when they realise that someone is aesthetically pleased by their genitals. There are men out there that absolutely love pumped up labia’s and will seemingly froth at the mouth at such an event. The arousal is increased through his both parties explicit pleasure.

The act of pumping is therefore something which can provide physical and mental pleasure to both parties. In much the same way as lingerie and erotic clothing works, excepting a pumped up labia and clitoris provides physical sensation and excitement as well as visual stimulation.

Despite all of this, care must be taken to not over pump the area which can result in pain and temporary numbing. In extreme cases pumping may disrupt blood vessels and cause bruising. It is important that any suction activity be done carefully and with patience. That’s not to say that you can’t take it to the extreme, there are some women which like to push their bodies and their capabilities to the very edge, and this is especially useful within BDSM and role play scenarios, but people that do this have an intuitive understanding of their bodies, know their limits and capabilities and don’t ever push too far beyond them.

Clitoral Enlargement Techniques

Clitoris Scale

Not only are there penis pumps and vaginal pumps but there’s also a range of clitoral pumps as well. Using a good quality vacuum pumping system can help in a size increase for your clitoris. The size increase has numerous benefits, firstly there are many people that find enlarged clitoris to be aesthetically pleasing and attractive, however the general approach with enlarged clitorises is that it can create all sorts of sensory thrills for you and your partner. Clitoral pumping, and female pumping, lends itself to all sorts of fun, exciting and intimate activities including gender bending and gender play, BDSM and medical scenes/roleplay as well as it being fun and cheeky for those who love the latest in sexual development and technology.

A clitoral pumping system will consist of a small clear cylinder around ¾” by 4” which will be attached to a flexible tube which is in turn connected to a powerful hand regulated and operated vacuum pump. Now this vacuum pump, through intense suction, will help in the promotion of blood flow by pulling blood into the clitoris and surrounding genitalia. As the clitoris, the clitoral hood, parts of the labia and vagina become engorged with blood you will see and feel the clitoris “grow” from being sucked into the clitoral chamber.

 

Some people will find that the resulting tugging sensation is enough to induce an orgasm, where some people will be reduced to writhing around in sustained pleasure. However, what is the point of clitoral pumping? Clitoral pumping varies between individuals in much the same way as other pumping fetishes do in terms of that there’s generally a myriad of reasons as to why they’d like to pump up a specific body part. For clitoral pumpers, they might be interested in an enlarged clitoris that is big enough for penetration, for others they might just enjoy the thrill of playing with a swollen engorged clitoris which is extremely sensitive during pumping play and pumping sessions. Other people might prefer the sensation that is applied to the clitoris after the pump has been removed. This intensity is not for everyone, and some people might find it to be too intense. Here are the basics on how to do it:

1.      Firstly you will need to prepare the area.

A clitoral pump will work best if the area has been warmed up with a damp cloth and warm water and good blood flow has been massaged into the area. For clitoral pumping, it does help to be in a state of arousal. With all this is mind it might be beneficial to have a bath and a shower first, as well as to shave any remaining pubic hair that you might have which could interfere with a seal.

2.      Use a thick water based lubricant.

Both around the clitoral region, and against the base of the cylinder to help create the perfect seal. Coating the clitoris and the inside of the cylinder at the same time to prevent chafing.

3.      Get a grip onto the cylinder.

You will need to be holding the cylinder tightly and snugly against your skin with one hand, and the hand pump will be placed in the other hand. Press gently down on the cylinder against the cylinder and slowly squeeze the pump so that you can create your seal. Once the suction has created the seal, you may let go of the cylinder.

4.      Go slowly.

Treat it like an experiment. Start off with the safety valve open slightly so you can feel some slight sucking sensations. Then try it with the valve closed, notice how each squeeze of the pump increases the vacuum pull on the clitoris and ultimately the surrounding tissue.  Pause after each squeeze and pump and see how it feels. Do not expect the clitoris to fill the entire chamber. Experiment with different pressures and pumping lengths to see how you go.

5.      Experience and enjoy the new level of sensations.

Stop pumping every now and then and just let yourself feel as to what’s happening and what’s going on. Spend a few minutes enjoying these sensations, or get your partner to provide some extra stimulation, letting them enjoy your enlarged clitoris in their mouth, with a vibrator, or even some light stroking.

6.      Do not over pump.

A little pumping will go a long way and over pumping can create issues. Now it won’t deaden the clitoris and make it fall off, but it can create bruises and other painful ailments. It is important that you do not over pump. If you’re finding yourself numb as opposed to being super sensitive, then you’ve probably over pumped. Make sure to do it less next time.

7.      Play around with your new equipment.

Some cylinders can actually have the tubing removed so that you can create a seal, and then remove the pump from the cylinder, leaving the cylinder attached to the body. From here the cylinder can be detached with the cylinders own quick release button. Play around with your new enlarged clit, you might choose to tug on it gently, tickle it with a stroking finger, or maybe even hold a light vibrator to it. Might even be time to call in a friend for some extra stimulation as well.

8.      Go slowly.

Some pumpers will report small and permanent increases over time, however for the most part the swollen tissue of the clitoris and surrounding region  will slowly reside immediately after the removal of the pump and return all the way back to normal by the next day.

Some clitoral pumpers will enlarge the clit to the size of a small penis for penetrative play, or for oral sex. Throw the sensation of this with a tighter feeling vagina and you have a sensual recipe for amazing play.

Yoni Massage Tips For You!

tantric yoni

Massages have long been famed to help ease the stresses of daily life. Massages have been around for centuries and there are numerous places which offer a variety of traditional massages with draw out histories. However, there is a new type of massage which is on the block, and it’s taking the world by storm. This new type of massage is becoming increasingly popular with not only couples wishing to express their love and affection for each other, but with specialized therapists offering this service with numerous high end massage places across the globe offering this new type of massage.

The new type of massage is  *Insert drum roll*

the Yoni massage. Okay, you might be a little confused but let’s break it down. The word Yoni, is derived from the Sanskrit word for the ‘vagina’ or ‘sacred place’. This type of massage is a tantric tradition that some professionals have taken years to perfect but is now being increasingly used to inspire and deliver passion between couples. It is a practice of tantric sex that has exploded onto the market and is now being offered by professional massage therapists as well!

 

 

The Yoni Massage comes from a perspective of affection and respect. The goal isn’t to necessarily achieve orgasm, though that is a by-product of this type of massage, and probably more than once in a massage. However the goal will be to easily provide pleasure and relaxation.  Having no expectation of experiencing an orgasm can suggest that the participants of the massage will be able to relax and simply enjoy the intimacy and the experience. The aim of the massage is to put you in a trance of relaxation whereby you can focus on the pleasures of the mind, and the pleasures of the body in total serenity. It serves almost as a meditative tool which will see the mind open up to the opportunity of pleasure and to bring couples closer together. Yoni massage guarantees to rid our bodies of the tensions that we have a tendency to hold within our vaginas. Sound confused? I wasn’t the only one. Research and practitioners of tantric sex and sexual behaviour believe that girls store trauma and emotional pain within the vaginal walls which over time this makes us less inquisitive about sex and distances our minds from our own sexuality.

Professionals use it typically to assist women through sexual blocks and deeply rooted traumas, with some even having their vaginismus cured through the experience of regular yoni massages. When you combine this with a partner it can be viewed as a type of sexual activity that is completely safe, judgement free and has the power to re-energise our bodies and sexuality. Consider it like the pleasure of buying a luxury vibrator that is aesthetically pleasing, has great sensation and is simply beautiful. Both a Yoni massage and a luxury women’s toy providing a joy for the giver to witness and to be responsible for the women in reaching the very best states of her arousal potential.

Before The Yoni Massage begins, it’s extremely vital that a special area is made, above all this space must feel safe, welcoming and relaxing. It is an intimate and a comfortable space. Bearing in mind that Sex isn’t a part of the massage nor ought to the giver expect to receive something reciprocally. There should be a very strong emphasis on this aspect as the point of a yoni massage means that it’s all concerning the woman and therefore the focus is on healing and leaving the healed area clear for any emotions, sensations and feelings that come back up. (It isn’t uncommon for terribly powerful emotions to return up and tears may well be shed, the purpose is to travel with the emotions, and for this to be an area to feel them and express those emotions).

The Yoni is a ritual and it is an art form that is intended to benefit the mind, body and the spirit. Most massages will general begin with an undressing ritual. This ritual sees that whenever an item clothing falls to the ground the receiver of the massage will say aloud something she feels is holding her back in life. This may well be one thing like body insecurity, or shyness.  Then each party meditate together, finally, the receiver will get a warm oil, full body hand massage,so that she is in as a relaxed mental state as she can possibly be. There is to be no touching of the vagina for the Yoni massage until a state of complete and utter relaxation has been attained.

For The Yoni Massage the woman should lie on her back, head raised with a soft and comfortable pillow, so she can see her Yoni and can look into the massager’s eyes.  Legs are spread with pillows under the knees, so that the giver can access the entire body. There should be an explicit focus on deep breathing and the maintaining of as much eye contact as possible which should be maintained throughout the process. There should also be as little talking as possible, the woman receiving may choose to give feedback on pressure speed or depth if she wants, but the point should be that she is relaxed and succumbing to the sensations by herself. The thighs, abdomen and breasts are gently massaged and caressed to encourage a relaxed state – it is not a sexual occurrence but it can be an erotic one. Warm, high quality oil is poured over the pubic area which will fall across the vaginal region so that the outer lips of the vagina can be gently massaged. This must not be hurried in any way shape or form. Gently squeeze the lips between the fingers and the thumb and slide up and down the length of the lips. Do the same with the inner lips. The clitoris can then be stroked in various directions including clockwise and anti-clockwise circles and squeezed gently with the aim of the massage being, don’t forget, not to orgasm.

From there, slowly, the centre finger of the right hand will be inserted. The right hand is especially important as it is keeping with Buddhist traditions and tantric practices. The walls of the vagina will then be gently massaged, with particular attention being paid to the g-spot, or the sacred spot. The pressure and speed will be varied across the massage. From there additional fingers can be inserted. Again, this is not a process that can be hurried with a decent Yoni massage taking in excess of two hours. From here, the little finger can be massaging the perineum and anus if required, as well as having fingers inserted with the thumb massaging the clitoris. In this position and stance, you are said to be holding one of the greatest mysteries of life in your hand.

The remaining hand can be used to massage her breasts, abdomen and the rest of her body. There’s a lot going on here between the massage, the eye contact, the holding, the controlled breathing, the clitoral stimulation and it can be a little overwhelming for some people resulting in multiple orgasms, despite the orgasms not being the point of the massage, it is often called “riding the wave” in tantric literature. We cannot stress that orgasms are not precisely the point of this massage.

A Yoni massage will end very gently and very slowly, and if you’re a couple experiencing this together then there will be plenty of time for cuddling, kissing and holding each other. Ideally, the end result of this massage will see that the orgasmic energy will unfold throughout the entire body, and reinvigorate the energetic body, the Chakra, and connect with the heart of the individual.

Rejuvenate Your Clitoris With Surgery!

Clitoral Plastic Surgery

Women will sometimes complain of an excess amount of skin that is sitting over their clitoris. This excess skin can sometimes project outwards and onto their clothes. An excess amount of skin over the clitoral hood can also result in reduced sexual sensitivity, or result in pain during sexual activity. Clitoral rejuvenation or clitoral hood reduction surgery, also known as Hoodectomy, is considered to be a minor corrective operation which is a procedure to remove excess prepuce tissue, which is the surrounding ‘hood’ through which protects the clitoris on three sides. In normal situations the hood has been anatomically designed to provide protection to the clitoris from abrasion and chaffing, as well as over stimulation. It will naturally retract during sexual intercourse leaving the incredibly sensitive spot to be more exposed. This exposure will allow the application of stimulation to the clitoral node which is commonly referred to as the exterior g-spot, and can result in multiple orgasms.

 

 

Sometimes, women with small clitoral nodes, or women that have an excess of skin over the clitoral node will find it exceptionally difficult to achieve orgasm, or might be unable to have an orgasm at all! This is as a result of the clitoris being too covered, or restricted from the excess skin tissue. This reduces the ability to feel tactile stimulation or might even remove it entirely.

A closely related condition in terms of the clitoris has been reported by researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine. The research conducted here found that 25% of women who had undergone treatment for some form of sexual dysfunction suffered from a condition which is now known as clitoral phimosis. This is a similar condition to an excess of clitoral hood whereby the prepuce tissue is too tight to allow the clitoris to protrude natural meaning that there is not enough exposure to provide the necessary stimulation in order to achieve sexual climax. This condition can also be corrected through a Hoodectomy and involves a surgical retraction of the skin tissue surrounding the clitoris.

The procedure is fairly simple and straight forward. Clitoral Hood reduction involves the removal of excess skin for the purpose of a smooth, tight and functional clitoris and clitoral hood. The important thing to note here is that the clitoris itself is not operated on during the surgery. So there should be no need for concerns in regards to things such as sensitivity reduction during sexual activity. On the contrary, a procedure such as this is far more likely to increasesexual sensations.

After the procedure it is normal to feel a little drowsy from the prescribed anaesthetic. You may be required to stay in the hospital overnight or at the very least it is recommended that you be driven home and to have someone stay the night to ensure that you’re okay. On the first night you will need to rest.

On the day of your surgery for a clitoral hood reduction you can safely expect to experience some discomfort which will continue for the few days following the surgery. Your surgeon will prescribe something for the pain if it is required. A few days after your surgery you will need to return back to the surgeon to have your first post operative check up.

 

 

Following the surgery you will be able to resume normal and light activities the following day. However it will be recommended that you take off up to two weeks of work to ensure proper healing, and you will need to refrain from sexual intercourse for at least 45 days following the surgery.

Another form of surgery regarding the clitoris is clitoral unhooding. This is sometimes comparatively referred to as female circumcision, as it is a similar procedure to that done in men. Although male circumcision is done for the purpose of genital hygiene and penile complications. Women however, having undergone a Hoodectomy, will be permitted to experience greater sensation and a heightened arousal through the reduction of the tissue that forms the clitoral hood. This will almost always result in stronger and faster orgasms. In some extents, it has been theorized that excessive clitoral hood tissue can result in hygiene-related issues within women as it can give protection to higher levels of bacteria which will sometimes result in yeast or vaginal infections in close proximity to the entrance of the vaginal canal. It is also important to note that a Hoodectomy should not be mistakenly referred to as a Clitoridectomy – which is an entirely different surgical procedure. A Clitoridectomy is Female Genital Mutilation which is practiced in some cultures which sees the complete removal of the clitoral node.

Because of the high density of nerves in the clitoris, there are some gynecologists which are not at all comfortable with performing and recommending a clitoral unhooding procedure. Sometimes this is as a result of a lack of surgical experience, other times they might be unwilling on societal comforts and the implication that it can have on a woman’s pleasure. The idea being that sexual pleasure can be considered taboo and that it isn’t necessary in the overall scheme of things. However, there are an increasing number of respected cosmetic gynecological surgeons and plastic surgeons that have training in urological matters that understand and acknowledge both the need and desire to have such an operation performed.

Designer Vaginas Just Right For You!

Custom Vaginas

It’s a strange world. A consumer and material world of sorts where we can not only design our homes, but also design our babies as well. We can easily take a holiday to an exotic country, experience a new culture and a new land. We can relax, and we can experience new adventures, and we can buy quality vibrators that have been specifically designed with women’s ergonomics in mind.. Now, in amongst relaxing and experiencing we can design a vagina. When we think of plastic surgery we think of face lifts, wrinkle free faces and Botox, but surprisingly these procedures are on the lower end of the growth scale. Labiaplasty surgery is one of the fastest growing cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. Almost doubling in the space of a year and being second only to buttock augmentation, colloquially referred to as the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). A Designer Vagina surgery is where a woman will have her labia and genitals surgically altered to adhere to a specific look or request, which is known as Labiaplasty. Recent studies have shown that that over 80% of all vaginal surgeries are for the purpose of reducing the size of, or reshaping the labia.

Labiaplasty is specific type of surgery that is used in order to reduce the size or change the shape of the parts of the vagina which include the labia minora, majora or both. The labia’s are the four different folds of skin tissue that make up the vulva. Labiaplasty is usually done either as a completely separate procedure or to be combined with vaginal surgery.

There are some women out there who have become embarrassed because their larger than expected labia’s are large enough that can be shown through their clothing, resulting in the appearance of a ‘camel toe’. Some women will also experience pain when jogging, exercising, riding bikes and wearing jeans which rub against their labia during such activities and can cause chaffing.

Labia reduction surgery can provide relief from pain and chaffing. Here we will briefly explore some of the other types of surgery that are used for vaginal, clitoral and labia procedures.

There are an increasing number of plastic surgeons whom are currently marketing a procedure in which they remove the tissue cover that normally protects the clitoris. This  procedure is usually likened to a female version of circumcision, and in a sense is very much the same kind of procedure. The removal of the clitoral hood is useful for increasing sensitivity and helping with the treatment of anorgasmia. Recently, laser technology has also been introduced into vaginal surgeries to replace the surgeons’ use of traditional metal scalpels.

Now this one is an interesting one. G-spot Amplification is a relatively new surgical procedure which involves the surgeon injecting the patient with collagen to increase her ability to feel pleasure.

In the front wall of the vagina is the clitoral node which is highly sensitive to stimulation. The clitoris is generally considered to be one of the main sources of feminine orgasmic arousal. The collagen injection is placed into this front wall for a more pronounced look and to increase stimulation.

This is a highly controversial procedure. Hymenplasty surgery is the medical term for a surgery whose goal it is to repair and build a broken hymen which has been broken through to trauma or after sexual activity.

Some cultures in the world have exceptionally strong religious beliefs about virginity and its importance within a new relationship. For this reason, the procedure is highly controversial as it is often deemed to be deceptive.

For the most part, these surgeries mentioned above are for cosmetic and aesthetic reasons, though it will be noted that some women require the use of Labiaplasty surgery for medical reasons. In these situations a labia has become abnormally large in the sense that it can cause extreme chaffing and uncomfortable pain through everyday activities. This is extreme cases though, most women will have a folds around the vaginal opening and this is completely normal and there is no reason to panic about something like this. Concernedly, an increasing amount of women are electing to have cosmetic Labiaplasty surgery because they have become aesthetically displeased with the appearance and presentation of their labia. This is despite there being nothing medically wrong with their vagina, and it is classified as normal. Now is this an expression of vanity, or is there something more going on here?

In a story in late 2016, there was an incredibly controversial story where a mother had taken her 15 year old daughter to the GP to discuss the option of Labiaplasty surgery. In this story, the mother was fighting doctors in order to get the surgery because her daughter had an inner labia which protruded past the outer labia. The mother had said comments such as ‘normal women are neater’ and then bizarrely said that “she will never be able to have sex looking like that”. Doctors concluded that there was no medical reason for the daughter to have surgery, and that the surgery was for completely cosmetic reasons. Researchers from the Children’s Bioethics Centre and the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne raised the belief that the majority of genital surgery was driven by cosmetic reasoning and not by any underlying medical condition. Further, an audit of the referral letters for Labiaplasty surgery at the royal children’s hospital concluded that over 25% of the cases involved the child’s mother bringing up the idea.

It’s a controversial story for several reasons. Firstly, readers of the story were concerned as to why a mother had been close enough to a teenage daughter to be able to comment on her labia, and secondly, the more important issue involves the mentality of teenagers. Teenagers are going through a rough period of life, they’re questioning their sex and sexuality, questioning their identities and bodies and experiencing a range of insecurities and social anxieties, the least of which should be a comment from one’s own parent unnecessarily criticising the appearance of ones genitals by saying that sexual activity will be out of the question with a look like that. Psychologists are suggesting that the overall theme that we need to address to young people is that intimate relationships are about the quality of a relationship, about being a good and likeable person, the quality of one’s heart and not the quality and appearance of ones genitalia. Teenagers are impressionable as they go through awkward years of transitioning into an adult, and focusing on the appearance of ones genitalia sends a terrible message to youth.

 

 

Medical professionals are reporting a surge in the increase of people that are having Labiaplasty surgery. This video quickly explores what a Labiaplasty surgery is.

Researchers are further suggesting that, like the preference for trimming and shaving pubic hair, the rise for the designer vagina stems from the consumption of pornography. Women, will generally not look at variety of women for their understanding of vaginas, what they will look at is magazines, and pornography which depicts an unrealistic expectation of a vagina in much the same capacity that men have in regards to penis size and pornography. The fact is, that like penises, body shapes, and appearances, that there is a huge variation of the idea of normal. Think about it – why do we have such a variety of condoms, penis plugs, and other toys for the penis if they were all the same? They’re not, and the thing to remember is that there is no normal shape and size of the labia. So when there’s situations where a boyfriend has asked that his girlfriend have surgery because he doesn’t like the look of her labia, then the issue is with the boyfriend and his understanding of vaginas, and not necessarily the individual with the vagina.

When it comes to labia size and appearance, culture will play a significant part in determining the ‘normal’ size of a labia. For example, in Japanese culture a larger labia is generally more desired and thought to be appealing whilst in Western Culture a neater and smaller labia is more sought after. So the question then becomes, who or what is driving the shift towards designer vaginas?

 

 

Bethany Jones from the Australian National University in Canberra released a study in 2015 that looked at pornography consumption within women and their desire to undergo a Labiaplasty surgery. Over 1000 people completed the survey which was put on Facebook and at the conclusion of the study, whilst there were small correlating links between the consumption of pornography and the desire to somewhat likely, and highly likely, undergo Labiaplasty surgery, the correlation was simply not strong enough to attribute the consumption of pornography to be the strongest indicator of a designer vagina. Indeed the majority of women that participated in the survey indicated that they were quite content with their vaginas.

Despite the survey being listed as a preliminary study, with further studies to follow, there was not the definitive link that was expected from the results of this survey. Ms Jones noted that the pursuing of cosmetic surgery is a very interesting behaviour and that a study should more closely examine such things as individual difference, psychological characteristics and mental health indicators. Primarily, research that has been done on the use of cosmetic surgery has demonstrated that mental health indicators such as depression, anxiety, and body dysmorphic disorder played a significant role in people’s decisions to have cosmetic surgery.

As with any medical procedure there are risks that are associated with Labiaplasty surgery and they include:

  • Loss of sensitivity in the vaginal region
  • Over cutting the labia
  • Under cutting the labia
  • Patient not being happy with the end result
  • Inability to wear tampons, have sex or partake in exercise for 6 weeks (sometimes longer) following the surgery
  • Risks of infection
  • Walking, sitting down and normal daily activities can be uncomfortable for a few weeks following the surgery.
  •  Taking time off of work is necessary to have this surgery

Vaginas are as unique as every other body part that we have, whether that is our body type, our facial shape, hair, and eye colours. There is no normal definition for the shape and appearance and look of a vagina and unless it is causing severe distress or there is an underlying medical issue which needs to be addressed then it certainly poses an interesting question. Considering the aim of pussy pumping is to promote the appearance of the labia, increase sensation and sensitivity -is Labiaplasty surgery really necessary, or is it just another example of human vanity?
