Was contacted by a journalist today asking if we ever discuss our lady bits on Mumstown! We’ve had topics about pelvic floor, vajazzling, sensatone and waxing down there so reckon we might be able to help her.
Here is the email we received, what do you think?
I’m writing a piece on labiaplasty for Feelgood in Examiner and have been asked to gauge the opinion of some real women (both mums and those without children) on their vaginas – why some women refuse to even look down or think theirs is ‘ugly’.
Labiaplasty was first invented for medical reasons (especially after childbirth), but has now become known as a cosmetic surgery for so-called ‘designer vaginas’. Wondering if it’s a topic that has ever come up at all on Mumstown – the pressure to have perfect parts due to porn.
If it has, be great if you could direct me to the thread. Otherwise, would love to get some feedback from some mums if possible off the record of course!
Well ladies, what do you do to look after that area. Do you wax, shave, decorate, do exercises for your pelvic floor or dress it up in some way, like with vajazzling?
please share….August 25, 2012 at 12:14 am #123953
I dont see what the big issue is about our bits!! I never gave birth so i never seen much of a changed down there, my bits would be slim and small looking, kinda "normal looking" I havent seen many womans bits other than porn and thats what im comparing my bits to i suppose. I have seen on embarrassing bodies women who werent happy with how big there Labia were too large, they did look large to me but they were still normal iykwim
Its like a nose, they come in different sizes but they are all still normal, what is the perfect labia, nose, boobs? I think its all down to self image. Would i get a designer vagina, eh, No its fine as it is…. do i wax yes i do, i was a swimmer years ago and i swam every morning, so waxing was just easier and part of life. Due to years of waxing i have very little and patchy regrowth, so my choice is to just keep it all waxed, i did shave about 2 weeks ago, just no time to get waxed and NEVER AGAIN, you cant beat waxing
Saying that i was giving myself a trim one evening and i nipped my labia!! Ouch and boy does it bleed, the girls got a great laughing when i told them why i was late 😆 😆 😆 I now know the meaning of the Devil makes work for idle hands!! 🙄
Why dont men get ballaplasties? I was watching embarrassing bodies on night and there were a load of lads having showers and checking how clean their bits were, boy there are some ugly ball sacks out there!! One guys balls were huge and they hung halfway down his thighs 😆 😆 😆
Why is it always women who want perfection and its okay for men to have ugly saggy balls? 😆 😆 😆August 25, 2012 at 8:38 am #123963AnonymousInactive

You’s are a filthy bunch – with long memories!! I was supposed to be the vajazzle for my hubby’s 40th birthday but with the craziness of getting it all organised and getting 4 kids looked after, I never had a chance to do it. I just about managed to get to the hairdresser for a quick blow dry!!
Then it was our 10 year wedding anniversary a few weeks ago and I was going to do it then but we took the 4 kids away with us for that and they are so mad and full of energy that we never even got jiggy on that trip (shameful I know to waste a lovely big hotel bed by not doing anything together but how can you get up to anything fun when there are little people constantly coming in and squeezing in between you!!)
So its still sitting there, peeking at me and reminding me its one more thing I have not done that I meant to do.
I’ll get to it – its my birthday next week, if himself decides to do something nice (like clear the kids out and leave me in peace at home for a few hours, that would be bliss) I might get around to it!!
Who knew down there could be such a hot topic of conversation??? 😆August 27, 2012 at 5:39 pm #123990libby1Participant
We thought you had went for it, and could share your experiences..
Maybe soon though.

You could charge and raise a few euro for charity! I’d feckin pay to see it 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆August 29, 2012 at 11:15 am #124020mammycoolParticipant
What the hell is a designer vagina???? Here was I thinking they were all pretty much the same – never went comparing any over the years. I reckon if you are healthy – don’t mess with it – you could end up with problems with childbirth.
I have had two children – both natural births and I do not think it has had any visual impact down there. The pelvic floor would be another matter altogether – does this op do something for your pelvic floor muscles?
Definately do not do waxing- not into self inflicted pain. Would use veet bikini to tidy up. The nearest to decoration would be a pair of sexy knickers. In saying that, the only interest my husband would have in them would be how to get the off fast.
Exploration????? Sabbi are you asking if we masturbate?August 29, 2012 at 6:28 pm #124026JedtMember
I presume most women do mammycool – although I still think there is a bit of taboo around that for women (well that is, until you get a load of women at an Ann Summers party and then all taboo goes out the window!!) 😉August 29, 2012 at 7:18 pm #124029
Mammycool i was only saying the same thing to dh, we go to the effort of buying nice sexy undies for them to be seen for a matter of minutes and then cast aside!! Dh laughed and said well its nice to get a birthday present in nice gift wrap then an ould soggy bit of news paper, its all in how its presented 😆 😆 😆
Yes Sabbi a huge Taboo its okay for men to do it but not us women!! Ah times are changing, for any woman out there who havent you dont know what your missing! 😉August 30, 2012 at 12:03 pm #124042mammycoolParticipant
Ha, ha – dead right – all in the presentation 🙂 🙂
As for taboos – we are a strange lot – it is not that long since contraception was illegal. We shall get there.
This reminds me of the episode in Sex in the City where Magda found the drawer full on condoms and the vibrator.August 31, 2012 at 9:25 pm #124060
I will give you all a good laugh 😳 😳 😳
A few weeks ago my ds found my vibrator in my bedside locker (he was looking for my phone charger) and he asked what it was, i told him "oh thats nothing, its just some thing that mammy uses to make her back better", that was that all forgotten about…. or so i thought! My mam was staying at the weekend and she suffers with her back, i caught ds going up the stairs and asked him what he was doing, he said "im getting that thing you use on your back to help make nanas back better!!!" 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😳
At 38 and 2 kids later i still like to ignore that fact that my mother knows im having sex never mind using sextoys!! 🙄 🙄 🙄September 3, 2012 at 3:28 pm #124095munchinParticipant
