45 | Labiaplasty has been one of the fastest-growing medical procedures for about two decades now. Despite the abundance of surgeons performing this procedure, detailed clitoral anatomy has been missing from most medical textbooks. My guest today, Jessica Pin is an activist for the inclusion of detailed clitoral anatomy and medical literature and curriculum. Jessica has successfully convinced nine major medical textbooks to update their content and 11 more to consider updates. She has also published a cadaveric study with plastic surgeons, convinced OBGYNSs to publish a cadaveric study and effected changes in the OBGYN's board certification and residency curriculum in the States.
In today's episode, we explore the medical misogyny and the ambivalence of medical institutions regarding vulva anatomy, specifically, the absence of detailed clitoral anatomy in the medical literature. For anyone listening who may have been considering labiaplasty, I hope this episode provides you with a new perspective; this is not to convince you otherwise but rather to offer you insight.

If you, or anyone you know has had some shame or discomfort around their vulva. I highly recommend checking out my friends website: www.comfortableinmyskincom.au

  • Jessica’s story and what brought her into this type of work
  • Why labiaplasty is one of the fastest growing procedures
  • How removing parts of the labia can cause danger to your sexual function
  • How Jessica has successfully convinced nine major medical textbooks to update their content and 11 more to consider updates.
