Small Bite: A new trend of bleaching female genitals—sexy or vile?

Full Platter:

Many females beautify themselves with perms, manicures, eyebrow waxes, which at times can be costly, if not troublesome. According to Cosmopolitan, the latest trend, despite its frightening imagery, is anal bleaching.

What started as a clever scene in the movie Bridesmaids, anal bleaching is the application of acid into the female genitals. And depending on how dark your skin tone is, the acid may be applied several times before the “whiteness” is revealed. Brazilian waxes, in comparison, sounds not nearly as painful as this.

Possible consequences of the bleaching includes anything from minor burns to increased risk of getting herpes or a bacterial infection.

Is this a necessary female beautification that should be as common as waxing your eyebrows, or is it a ridiculous soon-to-be-trashed Hollywood trend? Type away your thoughts below.
