Is a 'perfect vagina' even possible?

Geez, Why Are We So Obsessed With Having The Perfect Vagina?

Now, we're in surgery mode and where once a little "nip/tuck" was considered an interesting possibility for the person who desired physical change, it's presently part of a culture that equates body modification with self-esteem. I am talking about vaginal surgery, as in labiaplasty, hymenoplasty and vaginoplasty — all procedures designed to enhance the appearance and feel of the vagina. What bothers me about the idea of vaginal surgery (when it's done for aesthetic reasons as opposed to medical) is that it just seems to provide yet another avenue for women to believe they're less than perfect as is.

A Letter To My Husband In Heaven

Hubby in heaven, it will be eight years this Monday since the day you left this world. I used to imagine how would the pain feel years from the day you left. Remember you told me it would happen and that it would be ok because you would no longer be here? You were so right about so many things. But the most change took place within me.

The distance has our heads spinning, but we've never been closer.

We Live 9,349 Miles Apart, But We're Killing It In The Bedroom

I live in Orlando. He lives in Australia. At any given moment, there are 9,349 miles (plus, one hell of an expensive airplane ticket) separating me from my boyfriend. Let me be clear, this man is the greatest love of my life. He's on my mind and in my heart constantly, but I only see him four times a year for 2-week visits, and you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way.

How A Married Man Helped Me Get My Ex Back

When my boyfriend told me, just shy of our one-year anniversary, that he didn't want a girlfriend anymore, I almost choked on my savory pork belly dish and $12 cocktail. My girlfriends rose to the occasion, but it was the advice of a married, middle-aged dude that changed the course of my fate. He said that if I wanted to get different results, I had to change my behavior, trust him implicitly and do exactly as he said. Who was he to tell me who I am and how to date? His words were harsh. He was aggressive, obnoxious, cocky. And he was right.

Men, I get it. You're good guys and you want to do the right thing. But I'm not in need of having my scars kissed, licked, worshiped or healed by your magic touch. I'm not broken.
