We all have keepsakes we treasure to remember special moments in our lives, from teddies to train tickets.Why not? Save's him pennies (or is that pence) in biohazard disposal.
For Tracy Kiss, her labiaplasty surgery 10 months ago marked the end of a life of 'long-term suffering'.
And so, wanting to have something to remind her of this momentous occasion in her life, she asked her surgeon if she would be allowed to keep her severed labia minora or 'inner lips'.
The 29-year-old, from Buckinghamshire, likens it to keeping her children's milk teeth, locks of hair, their first babygros - and her silicone breast implants.When not cutting off her nether lips to make jewelry out of, Tracy is an advocate of semen facials and smoothies as an anti-aging treatment (no wonder teenage boys never seem to grow up); they're full of the stuff.
Tracy, a former glamour model and single mum-of-two, has suffered with pain and tenderness her whole life from her protruding labia - but she didn't realise anything was wrong because "nobody talks about it".
"As a result I’d missed out on so many hobbies and interests that I love and had to be mindful with tight clothing, exercise and intercourse because of the discomfort it caused simply because I didn’t know anything could be done about it – I thought all women were just as tender as I," she writes in her blog .and so, to make a long story short, she made jewelry out of them.
After realising something could be done Tracy turned to surgery in December 2016, had her labia removed and changed her whole life. . . .
As a onetime practicing biologist, I have a high tolerance for gross, but this seems a bit odd.
