Info that I had a burning desire to share.

The Fierce Women Who Dish got together last night for dinner. One of the many subjects that we talked about was the latest in medi-spas:

“First came the “medical spa,” or medi spa, offering dermatology services in a retail setting. The medi spa begat the dental spa, bringing tooth bleaching to storefronts nationwide. The dental spa begat the podiatry spa.

“And now comes the first medi spa in Manhattan wholly dedicated to strengthening and grooming a woman’s genital area….

“With the ubiquity of pornography, the pelvis had already become a marketable area for modification, ranging from the Brazilian bikini wax to genital surgery referred to as vaginal “rejuvenation.” Doctors have even coined a term for such genital “beautification”: cosmetogynecology or cosmogynecology.”

OK. We can now take our vaginas to a gyno spa and increase our pelvic fitness or go in for a little cosmogynecology.”

Is this a good thing? Bad thing? And what’s next – Camp Kegel? I would love to hear Eve Ensler’s reaction. What’s yours?
