Channel 4, Sun 17 Aug, 10pm
Get set to cross your legs and grit your teeth as Lisa Rogers fronts a very different kind of scrapheap challenge as part of Channel 4’s The G-Spot strand. We’ve all read the headlines and overheard the news that women are literally queuing up round the block to have surgery done on their lady gardens, but Rogers is determined to uncover the whole truth behind a remarkable surge in vaginal cosmetic surgery. And it’s not just the odd Brazilian that’s going on down there, but full-blown labial rejigging which has risen by a staggering 300% in the (quite literally) private sector.
With her mouth wide open and knees locked together, Rogers hunts down some of the women who are putting themselves through extraordinary pain and needless anxiety because, in the main, they are panicking about what sexual partners will think when they cop a glance at their disgusting womanhood. In one almost unbelievable instance, a teenager is almost forced to have her parts made less hideous after being teased about her genitalia by, of all people, her sister. Next week, we watch in bloody horror as men have an implant inserted in their brain so that they completely lose the ability to renew their subscription to Sky Sports. Actually, that would be slightly less ludicrous than the trend featured in Perfect Vagina.
