Monday's Show: Designer Vaginas and more!

Monday's show will feature a discussion on "Designer Vaginas" - a slang term for Vaginal Reconstructive Surgery, or plastic surgery "down there." According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, these surgeries have become the hottest trend in the field.

We'll also discuss a study from 2007 that was recently unearthed by two women from Bioethics Forum. In the study, a doctor from Cornell University defends the practice of surgically cutting girls' clitorises. He also used vibrators on girls as young as 6 in order to "test sensation in their nerves."
