Do you need a fairer vagina?

By Devi Boerema Sunday, March 13, 2016 - 21:09
Is every girl’s vagina dark or is it just mine? For women who share this concern, read what experts say about vaginal fairness.

Critics have branded it “the ultimate insult to a woman”.

For many Indian women buying skin-lightening products is something they don’t give much thought. There is a reason why the market for these products is growing by more than 10 percent a year. Ridding your skin of what the adverts portray as hated dark spots has become a natural part of taking care of your body.

As the disposable income of middle class women increases they’re willing to spend more on their appearance. Apart from creams and scrubs, pricier laser therapy is also gaining popularity.

Beauty or power?

Most of these women see little harm in associating success and happiness with a lighter skin. As most of the companies suggest in their advertisements. To them it’s only about beauty.

But that’s nonsense according to Anjali Monteiro of the Tata Institute for Social Science. “It is pure classism,” she says. “It’s not a beauty issue at all. In every society what is considered beautiful is related to what would be the most powerful look,” she says.

The first company to bring a fairness cream onto the Indian market in 1976 was the Dutch-owned Hindustan Unilever. But long before that, women had been treating their skins with homemade concoctions of turmeric powder, lemon juice and other natural products.

Skin colour obsessions

India, with its caste system, has an obsession with fairness that dates back long before fair vaginas became an issue, and even before the British colonial rule. Having a lighter skin suggested you weren’t part of the working class so you didn’t have to labour outside in the blazing sun.

Until very recently the same preference for fair skin was also the norm in Europe. But this slowly evolved into an obsession with getting a sun tan. A tan became a way to show off that you had time to lounge around relaxing in the sun on exotic holidays.

Insecurity

Although dusky models are gradually making a way for themselves in the industry in India, the trend for the indigenous look hasn’t really caught on. Consciously or unconsciously, skin tone is still a factor that many Indians use to judge social class, Dr Monteiro points out.

Because of the caste system, inequality is embedded in society, she says, and skin colour is still the clue to inferiority or superiority. That’s why many Indian women feel insecure about their complexion.

Natural and healthy

The quest for fairness has now reached a point where women have started worrying about the fairness of their vaginas. Online sexual health forums are full of questions like, “My vagina is darker than the rest of my body. Is this some kind of disease or vaginal infection?”

But it’s natural and healthy for the skin around your vagina to look a bit darker, says dermatologist Hendry de Vries of the Amsterdam Medical Centre.

“The skin is very thin and elastic, that’s why it can look unnaturally dark. If you stretch it a bit you will see it becomes lighter. But in places where it’s folded the skin is not stretched out and therefore looks darker,” he explains.

Dubious claims

The producers of fairness product Clean and Dry claim in their advertisement that their product is an antifungal cream with an added brightening effect. Dr de Vries says the product is dubious.

“As dermatologists we are extra careful when we prescribe creams used on genitals,” he says. “Because the skin is so thin, it gets easily irritated.” It can cause vaginal infection too. 

And ladies, it’s not only the skin around the vagina that looks dark. Penis skin is also thin and stretchy so the penis can become erect. The colour effect is just the same. So if you're worried about what your guy might think of you, maybe you should take a closer look at his privates.

Bete Mona as you read above that the skin of your labia is very thin and elastic, making it look darker. Trying to lighten your naturally dark skin with fairness creams can cause unnecessary irritation. So try to ignore the commercials telling you that fairer is better and embrace your natural colour – be vagina confident!

You know I am 21yrs old university girl, unmairreRd but not virgin. My viginal tube is tested by my friend snake. Though my body colour is fair,nipple and its round area is also not dark, but my viginal place is dark and my boyfriend always make a complaint and say when your colour is fair, why your viginal place is dark. This he tell when I insist to lick my clitorirs and suck my pussy. when I was I hostel room or at home, i never use any under garments even bra.and in night I always slept as nude to take fresh airs. But I use to shave my pubic hairs and arms hairs with shaving kit of mens i.e.with razer and use shaving cream, is is the cause of my darkness.My pussy is flappy type and breast is in small round shape and straight. why my place is dark, to-day my friend is making complaint tomorrow my would be husband feel unpleasent when I introduces them for foreplay and fucking purposes?
I am 18 years old.My boy friend wants my vagina to be white.When he takes off my inner garments,he just spends his time only on the upper part of my body,he just asks me why can't u whiten ur pussy,!!He doesn't spend time on the lower part..I just want him to lick my pussy..bt he doesnt...next week we r going to have sex...how can I whiten by vagina??plzz can u suggest me..I need a quick reply..
NO you cannot!! Don’t even think about it. What type of a request is this? Whiter vaginas are for people who have white skin, we don’t. We are of dark complexion. So lets say you were to tell him he has a small penis, can he do something about it? No, right? So then why the demand on you? And maybe you should remember, that today its this, tomorrow something else, for how long will you keep doing things to please him?? If he is the guy who loves and respects your body for what it is, then he is the guy worth having intimate relations with, otherwise, reconsider. All the best.

I see most of the girls are saying their vagina is dark. I astonished listening these. Myself Taniya. I am 25 years unmarried girl. I have neither boy friend nor have had sex with any body. I have fairy skin and pink pussy with hymen. I shave my pussy with electronics shaving machine only. How most of the girls are having dark vagina? I think the girls who are having dark vagina are worried about their vagina and the girls who are normal with pink vagina never express their vagina colour. I think I mentioned it first time in the net about the existance of pink parital lip colour. So, the girls who are having pink pussy or nearer to pink write upon this page and let the other girls know about the real colour of the pussy i.e. pink.

I am hostler girl and my body color is fair. Upto the age of 18year my viginal place were not dark and when pee infront of my girlfriends after lokking my vigina they said really it is nice and fair,ur boyfriend. Or husband may be lucky one when u introduces them for foreplay. Asmy room partners vigina place is too dark and non are virgin and they remove their airs with cheap quality of hair remover shoap. And I alwaus use ”Anefrench hair remover"and after sex with my one class mate. My boyfriend also praise about my fair ness of vigina and ny breast and nipple areola areas. One day my boyfriend suggested me to clean ur hairs with man shaving kit and he shave my pubic hairs and tell me how to use it and keep it clean and hairless vigina always looks nice.” From that day shave my pubic hairs twice in aweek and I marked that it become dark now why.? Is due to use of razer instead of shaving cream. Though daily wash it with face washing shoap and apply fairness cream on viginal lips, and legs .why my vigina is dark.my friend never say anything about it but my hostler girl friends say due to the pressure of penis and skin to skin I touches it may cause in some girls,it is true?

I simply feel its rubbish. It hardly matters weather your vagina is dark or light the thing that matters is it is healthy or not if anybody is suffering from any kind of irritation in the vagina should knock the door of gyno as soon as possible.
My husband"s Penis is very fair but my vaginal area is very dark still there is no problem in our life. it is love that make every thing fair.
My skin tone is fair and my vaginal areas are also pink n fair but the area near mg thighs next to vagina are dark... Can you suggest any option for it ?
While my skin is very fair, I too had a very dark vagina and it bothered me a lot. I did a lot of research on what I could do and found there are a lot of skin brightening creams that work very well to lighten your vagina. I review some of them on my new website at http://www.vaginalbleaching.org .

Bt my problem is my vagina color it's too dark .. My partner is so fare in color and im light dark ... Wht can i do to reduce the darkness plzz tell me .. I need a fast and resulting solution .
Many females thinks dat if ur man loves u thn colour of vagina doesnt matter..bt thats nt true. Ur man loves u a lot n dats y only he never say it to u.. jst clear ur mind dat if ir sex life is happy and totally satisfied thn u live long happy married life.. otherwise u may get lots of prbms between u both. If u look good and fair there, ur man always thinks only about u and nt even thinks about any other women for sex satisfaction... and as female vagina is as fair as other body from birth, But due to lack of awarness, vagina become darker with d age.. as men always ger erect and more excited by just a look of ur fair private part , its girls duty to give as much as satisfaction to their men in return of their love and care.. many indian gemales are not even think about their sex life, and always complaining dat their husbands give lot importance to sex.. but its natural thing by men.coz if u having great and satisfied sex life, u live happy and healthy life together.. As u can have good sex only for few years of life, its necessory to indian womens to think about sex and take it as most imp part of life..

I am 24yrs university girl and have premartial relation with one class mate.his skin is fair from top to bottom including his balls and pubic areas.when. I introduces my viginal place for forplay by his tonque,for licking,kissing and fingering etc for warmup. He always tell me after fuck that ur viginal place is too dark and ur nipples and areola areas also too dark.though my body skin is norlmal.I think opposite genders generally love and like fair and white viginal place and pay more attentions. I generally used hair cream for cleaning pubic hairs and every week clean it regularly either it is my date with friend or not. I am in fear when my would be husband unhappy with my black and dark viginal place when introduces them from time to time to full fill his sex requirments on day or night time.

I am young unmarried girl but not virgin. My virginty were brokem by my one nebiours with my consent by his circumised penis after errection I saw that his penis head to big and swallon whi looks me good in pink colour and tell me that u r young and virgin girl but ur vigina areas are too black why it is so, he asked me which type of hair cream u used for shaving ur ”Jhant Ka Ball” reply clean it with hair remover shop. Surely it is due to cheap hair remover shop it is.really it looks me odd when saw it infront of mirror.when he spread my pussy lips and say yes ur inner viginal walls and roof is good but outer side of area not looks good. Please keep it maintained as u keep neat clean and fair ur face. He suggested me to use fairness clean daily and keep happy for penis pleasure. I do not know why men like fair viginal place when his lund is black and dark only his penis head is clean fair .

It is miss matching that mine is fair from top to bottom because my body color is fair my viginal place and breast areas are fair my nipple butoons is fair and in pink color. Looks sexy. Just against my friend penis,balls and his legs are dark and b lack like blacke afferican cock. But his penis head is fair in color and extra large which is too attractive and loving for me. Nor he nor I care about it. I know that his penis is perfect for me and keep me and my pussy happy. Every girls wanta sexual pleasure with her bed partner and hope that he may actoivate her Gspot with his penis, in sex male penis head is pay more important role when he do in and out and touches our uters .girls or women does not crazy for money but she always crazy pleasure on bed at intercourse time and other things have to do by him because he is our sex slaves.

I am student and living in girls Hostel where we slept nude in room with room mate and ever room partner know about each of us.I marked that male avoid to pee infront of male but in girls,or married ladies are just opposite with male thaoughts and do not feel any same or shy the pee before each of them and watch their pee showers and feel pleasure and say her viginal place is good and view all of them frequently. In my hostel had saw lot of girls viginal place and out of 80% are dark and 40%girls are keep her pussy neat and clean and shave her pubic hairs. Most of the girls have hide physical relations with young boys and some are attended hi fy society on exchange of money basis.in day and college time but all are happy with their dark and black viginal place and bipple buttons. I think being a girl that girls hostel is the best class where we learn more about sex0and its pleasure by viewing porn film. Penis is penis either it is black or white similarly pussy is pussy either it is black or dark or fai in colour. We girls born. To give viginal pleasure to men and enjoy penis pleasure when it is in side of us and during the time of intercourse never think about his penis skin color only think fuck me hard and keep me and my pussy happy. Her main aim and object is too enjoy penis pleasure and feel happy. It is useless thinking about color of skin. Every one either he or she knows that men SEMEN or Sperm OR money color is white when he discharge in her mouth. During oral sex and when at viginal sex never it is black.
my penis is light dark bcs of ths my grlfrnd dnt do anal sex,she says it is only for my vgna bt she want to suck due to the colour of my pns she dsnt do ths.plsss tell me
Sorry what? She does ot want to have oral sex because of the colour of your penis? Dude, maybe she just does not want it – so that’s ok right? As for colour, well sorry, its not as if anyone can change the coulr of their skin… especially genitals which are as is darker. So well, bad luck on the oral sex and tell her to chill o n the colour issue. Read this https://lovematters.in/en/resource/penis
