Elective cosmetic vaginal surgery: revirgination.
From the site:
Like a virgin...
When Jeanette Yarborough decided to give her husband a gift for their seventeenth wedding anniversary she wanted it to be special. Really special. She decided that conventional treats such as Mediterranean cruises, gold watches, cars, a murder-mystery weekend, or even a boob job just weren't going to cut it. She gave him something much more personal and painful. Her virginity.
Well, sort of Mrs Yarborough paid $5,000 to a cosmetic surgeon to stitch her hymen back together so she could lose her virginity all over again and her husband would have that thrilling conquest at the grand age of 40.
Let's run that by again, shall we? She gave him something much more personal and painful. So her husband would have that thrilling conquest at the grand age of 40. Later she calls it the ultimate gift for the man who has everything.
The only possible benefit this could have that I can see is that if virginity isn't something that is gone when it's gone, irrevocably; if it becomes something "restorable" maybe we will finally see a stronger cultural shift toward it no longer mattering. I doubt it, though, because I thought we'd shifted that way enough that this sort of insanity wouldn't appeal.
It's elective female genital mutilation, on tap at a cosmetic surgeon near you. I'm starting to come around to Twisty Faster's view of how fundamental rape is to this culture. This woman paid $5500 and underwent the dangers of surgery and general anesthesia to have a little flap of skin restored just so her husband could rip her open again. For the thrill of the conquest. If that's love I want nothing to do with it; how nauseous.
At least the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists are warning against the procedure.

Thrilling. Conquest. What, because it hurts? Jesus!
I had to pull Josh over to the computer and say, "argh argh argh!" when I read this.
I can tell you this: I don't even want a relationship in which "conquest" makes sense. Because if it's really a "conquest" for him, it's because I don't much want to. Ick ick ick pfah ick. The thought of "conquering" after seventeen years of marriage really turns my stomach.

I caught the Gill Deacon Show
(March 20, 2007) about labioplasty (and later, which she called attention to, carpets), and I was horrified. What part of "first, do no harm" isn't getting taught?
Funnier, your link to "Twisty Faster" linked up a snippet of Toto's hit song Africa
, which, among other lyrical oddities, includes the line "moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide her toward salvation"... to which I can only suggest that "moonlit wings" reflect the moon
and not the stars at all.
"Sorry Honey, I'm just not in the mood tonight."

I'm glad I misunderstood that.
Oh Thank God. (or thank whatever.)
Phew. I thought when I saw your title that is meant this was something you were going to be considering. Obviously my thought was something like ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR &%!@&%* MIND???
Mrs. Yarborough is Nucking Futs. Period.
I could see one possible use for this. If a woman had several addictions, including a sex addiction, I could see a woman getting this if she swore off sex. I still wouldn't recommend it, but it might be a possibility.
But with even that said, if this had never been invented, the world would not be worse off.

Re: I'm glad I misunderstood that.
Um, I can't say I'm impressed with what this implies about your opinion of me - that you would think I would consider something like this at all. Ever. Yikes. But now you know otherwise, so it's all good.

Re: I'm glad I misunderstood that.
Misreading something always seems more of a reflection on me, not the thing or person I'm reading about. Correct me if I'm wrong.
