Body Modification

Some people choose to modify certain aspects of their body, either to feel more comfortable, enhance sexual enjoyment for themselves or their partner, or to improve their looks.

If the reason for making these changes is driven by a desire to look more normal, you should consider if it is really necessary and consider the consequences involved. Remember that everybody is different and that it’s important not to compare yourself with others.

There is an increased trend in modifications like shaving pubic hair or undergoing genital cosmetic surgery, which could in part be influenced by increased access to pornographic material online. Remember – the images displayed in pornography are often unrealistic or enhanced and should not be used to decide what’s “normal”.
