If you listen to THE MEDIA, you know that 18 to 24-year-old girls want a lot of things. A thigh-gap, Madonna arms, and a Mansur Gavriel bag. More recently than ever, they're asking about labiaplasty. Yep, that's the fancy word for a vagina redesign. Some are blaming the trend on airbrushing and waxing in pornographic materials, where a "normal"-looking vagina just isn't enough. Whether or not the "1,150 young women" out of half the world's population is something we, as a society, should be clutching our pearls over, who really knows? But the moral of the story is—as always—don't ever Google "labia surgery."
