There is a new beauty trend that has become quite popular among women in the United States. This one is definitely thinking outside the box, well… at least metaphorically.
It does not involve clothing or cosmetics and to see it, the man would have to get well past first base. Ladies, it's cuter than tattoos and you don't have to pierce anything, but to try this one, you can't be a prude.
This trend, described as beauty below the belt, is called 'vajazzling'. Vajazzling is a form of Brazilian bikini wax where tiny crystals are stuck to the skin to accessorize your personal jewel after hair removal. Talk about taking Brazilian to the next level.
Wait, don't laugh yet. According to reports, this sparkly trend actually has benefits that go beyond teasing your partner. It is said to boost confidence, cover unsightly skin reactions after waxing and mask evidence of childbirth where there are C-section scars. Hmmm…
It is said to be a hot rage in the US, but vajazzling is yet to gain momentum in these parts. Express Woman spoke to some females about this trend, and those who were not too flabbergasted by the thought were very clear that this is not something they would consider.
"I do not have enough information on that so I would have to research it more," said one woman seriously. When explained further, she shook her head. "I want mine left like God gave."
"Too much!" said another woman. "If I polish my nails I get bazodee, I would probably never stop running to the bathroom to see if I was still jewelled or dazzled or whatever it is."
"Not necessary," said a third. "And how long is that supposed to stay on anyway? What if one travels too far?"
A fourth woman said, "Suppose after I put that on I have to go somewhere and something happens on the way? My mother always taught me to be prepared for the hospital. I would hate to end up on an emergency bed with a bedazzled vagina. Too distracting for the doctors I think."
A fifth said, "I must have money to waste."
"The truth is, once it doesn't involve any kind of invasive procedure like surgery my husband could probably entice me into trying it at least once," said another. "I would not just take it upon myself to go vajazzzle my vajayjay though."
So maybe you might not try the bedazzling bit, but there are several other options for women to spruce up their underexplored genitalia that do not involve visiting a spa or plastering jewels below the navel.
Vaginal rejuvenation or vagina tightening surgery is one option for women who feel that they have stretched from aging or multiple childbirth and believe they are too loose to enjoy sex.
Some would argue that this procedure is guaranteed to tighten and restore the vagina and supporting structures while others dismiss it as too risky as it involves cutting nerves and unnecessary since they believe that while vaginal rejuvenation would bring plenty of scar tissue, it does not in any way alter the size and shape of the private parts. Another damper? It brings no miracles. If you did not enjoy sex to begin with, you are not going to enjoy it after costly surgery. Chances are pretty good that your partner would be the only person feeling the difference.
Another option is labiaplasty. Hey, there is no limit to where our vanity can begin or end, and if you think you want cuter genitalia, then there is actually surgery to reduce the size of the labia or even out as symetrical lips. Labiaplasty also has its controversy as many believe that this procedure is driven by marketing and an unhealthy self image when the reality is that there is a large diversity in female genitalia appearance.
Want your partner to believe he is the first? There is hymenoplasty or hymen repair, which allows you to go through the entire experience of losing your virginity again. Of course, there is a simpler and cheaper way to do it… Some places actually sell artificial hymens.
If you are not into the costly surgery but you still want to tighten your kegel muscles, then think about v-fitness. To make things easy, there is actually underwear that is supposed to exercise those muscles when you wear it- just like sex. The underwear, called the PantyO, has a 1-inch extension sewn into it, which is inserted vaginally while wearing the underwear.
According to those promoting the underwear, the advantages of the PantyO include strengthening the pelvic wall for pre-pregnancy and easier labour, restoring the pelvic wall after pregnancy and labour, improving bladder control, helping you to focus and release stress throughout the day and a tighter vaginal passage which increases sexual pleasure.
"This is a secret I would love to have," one woman laughed. "I may not go for the jewels, but I would certainly go for this one."
The list of things you can do is almost never-ending. This article explores just a few options, but at the end of the day, if you choose to experiment or leave it just as it is, whatever you do to your package must be a personal choice.
