Asia’s Camel Toe Panties: Who’s This For Again?

The perfect genitalia

According to a recent study published by the University of Melbourne, plastic surgery in women is on the rise. However, not necessarily the usual suspects in the cosmetic surgery field. Girls as young as 15 are foregoing nose jobs and breast implants in favor of genital modification. With the ever increasing number of teenage girls concerned that their genitals don’t look ‘normal’, a labiaplasty seems to be the answer to their body image issues. A labiaplasty is a surgical procedure which removes excess or otherwise unwanted tissue from the labia. And where there are body image issues, new markets open to cater to the insecure.

It’s clear where the derogatory term ‘Camel Toe’ originates from.

Finding a market in insecurity

Most of these girls and women attempt to correct what they see as a deeply personal defect. After all, no one will be confronted with these genitals more than the women themselves. If they see the shape, size and look of their genitals as abhorrent, they will try to fix it or otherwise hide it. Wardrobe malfunction can deeply embarrass those who are easily shamed. The appearance of the so-called ‘Camel Toe’ when wearing skinny jeans or clingy leggings has haunted many and caused plenty of discomfort, physically and mentally.

Looking for something sturdier than a pair of panties? This Camel Toe Jockstrap has got you covered.

They’re selling, but who’s buying?

However, China is not one to fail to fill a niche if there’s money to be made. Introducing the ‘Camel Toe Panties’, designed for women eager to share their ‘designer vagina’ with the world in their next bathroom selfie. As of right now, people are left with many questions: who is this targeted towards? What occasions are these designed for? Why would I pay $29.99 for the privilege of showing off my faux pubis? It seems the creators are either banking on (probably) non-existent trends of sexuality lost in translation, or perhaps it is simply a novelty item.

As it stands, these pants have found their target audience in the transgender market, with their ability to hide a transitioning man’s parts in favor of an exaggerated pair of lips. The garment comes in a variety of different skin tones, in an apparent attempt to reach across racial divides with the most absurd panties from the Orient yet.

There’s no discrimination in the world of fake vaginas.
