Though the price is a big amount, it seems justified given her feelings of insecurity towards her private parts. In the past she’d received comments such as ‘I can’t wait to sleep with someone with a normal vagina’ and ‘you’ve got a pair of balls’.
“How are you supposed to enjoy sex when the main organ that you would use you feel completely embarrassed by, and then on the other hand it hurts physically,” she said on the documentary. “It is not an aspect of my life that is explored and enjoyed.”
In modern culture, especially for women, the ‘perfect body’ is an image that has been created by social media, meaning that people often feel insecure about their appearance.
But for anybody who gets down looking through their social media feeds, Anna Victoria has presented two images of herself side by side that demonstrates how pictures posted online might not be what they seem.
The picture shows how different angles can give a entirely different impression of belly flab.
What people see on sites like Instagram is only a small snippet of the bigger picture. Behind numerous filters, different angles, lighting and so on, things will always be different.
However, as celebs and ‘internet famous’ people post more and more stuff, the lines between reality and fake become very blurred. All in all, the things that are seen are taken as face value, which subsequently creates these false expectations.
During the documentary, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists report that in the last decade five times as many labiaplasty surgeries are being carried out across the UK, thanks to the image women think they have to live up to.
