'Honey, Is My Vagina Too Wide?'


ManholeI hear cosmetic surgery advertisements all the time on the radio: breast enhancements, tummy tucks, liposuction, and vaginal rejuvenation.

Okay, the first three are obvious. But that fourth one? Vaginal rejuvenation? Does my vagina need to be made young again? I didn't know it was old.

Actually, vaginal rejuvenation surgery is supposed to counteract the stretching effect that giving birth has on your vagina. The more children you give birth to, the more stretched out it gets. And it never returns to its original size.

Theoretically, a bigger vagina leads to less sexual satisfaction for both women and men because there is less friction between the two during intercourse.

The procedure to correct this, known as vaginoplasty, surgically tightens the vaginal canal by reducing the excess vaginal lining and tightening the vagina and its supporting muscles and tissues.

It's major surgery. There's pain, swelling, and activity restriction involved. But after six weeks, you can try out your new, tighter vagina. Hopefully, the smaller size and accompanying increase in friction will make sex more satisfying for both you and your partner.

I wouldn't have it done. For me, a satisfying sex life is just as much emotional as it is physical. And I'm satisfied.

Besides, my husband has never complained about the size of my vagina. But if he were to complain, I would suggest to him that, other than sleeping in the spare bedroom, he could always have penis enlargement surgery done. Doctors can do amazing things to increase the circumference of a penis.

Would you have a vaginoplasty done?

Haha. Nope. I like my vagina the way it is and so does DH. Isn't that why they make kegals?

LOL - if I were in need, I would vote for penis enlargement over vagina reduction.  LOL

Definitely not!  Vaginas are awesome.  They stretch to accommodate the birth of a child, and then they go back to normal!  That's what they were designed to do.  And yes...if my husband ever, ever, ever implied that my vagina was in need of a surgeon's attention, he'd never come close to getting any ever again.

Oh, my lord! Isn't it enough that we have to fret over the wrinkles on our faces? Now do we also have to worry about the appearance of parts of our anatomy that are never -(well, hardly ever)- visible to the naked eye?

Oh, yet another "fix" for all of those body insecurities that women are supposed to have.  I suppose the t-shirts that say "My vagina is tighter than your vagina!" come next.

Oh. My. Stars. Total insanity. Proper use of Kegels will give you a vajay-jay that will grip so tightly you'll be able to throw your lover across the room with your superhero ladybits. Having trouble remembering to do yer Kegels? I created a Twitter account to help out: @Time4Kegels - everything you need to know is there. Kegels aren't just for preventing urinary incontinence and tightening your vaginal canal - strengthening our PC muscles will make your orgasms stronger and last longer. Plus, they're great for all genders, and they're FREE! What's not to love?

Some eon hasn't done her homework. its actually big surgical business.. Childbirth is a major culprit, but old age obesity and other factors contribute to the need for repairs. many women assume men can tell the difference and most women are OK with that; however it's a problem many men won't discuss witha woman for fear of gettign cut off, they just move along until the find a better fit. Also women who stick artificial things into the VJJ tend to have problem with real lovers down the line. Best that I ever had was from a 41 year old woman who had 4 kids but had surgical repair right after childbirth, and she never put anything into her body but cotton products. Women don't realize men talk about it

Size doesn't matter as long as it has a lot of FUR on it
