Someone told me the more body hair you have, the higher your sex drive.

Is this accurate in everyone's experience?

Of course you can wear long bottoms/skirts/socks when you get self-conscious, but strive towards self-acceptance anyway nonny. The only hair removal I do anymore is plucking stray eyebrow hair.

I don't shave anything because it's more comfortable, but I think my leg hair is ugly as fuck and I always keep my legs covered with pants, tights or leggings unless it's really hot out


Labiaplasty Anonymous 3431[Reply]

Is anyone else considering labiaplasty or has had it performed?

I really want it done.

My labia isn't really that big but you see porn stars who have zero labia lip and since they're featured it makes you feel like that's what is acceptable.. I also think it looks better so I have been insecure about that aspect of myself for awhile.

I want to get it done but I will be horrified if the surgeon doesn't do it probably. I saw some botched images and yikes.

I'm literally an aspiring surgery addict but I would never recommend it to someone else. You are being put under general anesthetic (something that has a possibility of killing you every time it is done no matter what) to fix a purely aesthetic issue that will leave you unable to walk or sit normally for weeks and potentially ruin your ability to orgasm for the rest of your life because most plastic surgeons are male and do not know clitoral anatomy.

It's not worth the time, money, and pain.

Losing weight if you're obese is objectively healthy, it's not just about beauty, which is subjective. There are dudes who love fatties, after all.
Getting your genitals cut up is objectively unhealthy in most cases (though there may be some cases where it's medically necessary). If you want medically unnecessary surgery down there, yes, you're mentally ill and it's caused by some deep-rooted issue.
I'm not entirely against people getting surgery to boost their confidence in some cases but your analogy that it's the same as a fat person losing weight it shit.

Anonymous 11124

I suggest staying natural. All labias are fine but if it's visible but not big like you said then it's actually perfect. When there is no lip, that's a little too childish, a little bit is sexy.

Anonymous 11125

I was wondering if this could be a porn-induced problem.

Anybody here workout?

I work out pretty regularly; regular weight lifting and strength training along with plenty of cardio. I can bench press 120lbs, but I've gone as high as 150lbs on good days.
It's come to the point where friends and family have taken notice because I've become considerably more muscular.
Sometimes I contradict myself because I don't want to be known as the buff girl, but I love seeing those numbers climb on the smith machine. And I can physically do more than I ever was able to before. I don't want to lose that.

Does anyone else here have a workout/exercise regime? Doesn't matter if it's only cardio or if you're a gym bunny like me. Let's talk about it!

Has anyone successfully fixed their anterior pelvic tilt? I suspect this causes many women to falsely believe they are fat.

Anonymous 10694

I have this, but I like it cause it makes my butt look big.

I just bought a dip belt I'm pretty excited. Apart from weighted dips and attaching a kettlebell on there for squats is there anything else I'm not thinking of? Weighted chin/pull ups of course but I am struggling with sets of 8 at bodyweight atm.

I fixed it by not carrying around a heavy-ass backpack anymore.
It only makes your butt look bigger if you have no ass muscles. Do some squats regularly, then standing in proper posture makes your butt look bigger since it flexes the muscles.


eating disorder thread Anonymous 4629[Reply]

eating disorder thread - its time for another

do you have an eating disorder?
which one?
are you attempting recovery?
how long have you had it?
what caused it?
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?

i have a purging disorder.
i kind of want to attempt recovery sometimes, then i see something like my crush looking happier talking to another girl thats skinnier than me, i think about how much better i could look/how i could compensate for my stupid ugly fact, and i think about the comments my dad gives me when i 'eat bad' even though im 19 bmi/skinnier than him (hes overweight, i think.) ive had mine since i was 13. i was a fat child growing up because my parents didnt know how to feed me, and instead of giving me healthy food they just called me fat/made fun of me. it disrupts my daily life heavily because i cant eat anything without purging after, and it just ruins my mood and has disrupted my health. ill be devastated if i go up 0.1 a pound

Don't discount your struggle anon, it is absolutely a disordered relationship with food at least. I had an ed (flip flop between ana and bulimia) for about 7 years. I spent so much time obsessing over food and my body. I never really tried to recover, but the second time I took acid, I came to some weird realizations, and never went back.

Anonymous 11060

You're going to have to build new positive connections between other activities instead of eating. I recommend talking to a therapist specialized in CBT, or if you can't, find a way to follow some guidelines for adjusting your behavior.

weird body stuff Anonymous 7888[Reply]

>what's the weirdest/grossest body thing that ever happened to you?

i might regret asking this but i just had a weird body thing happen and need to feel less alone.

i've had a bump in my armpit for YEARS. over 10 years. Last week it got inflamed and weird. i treated it with hot compresses, neosporin, and hydrocolloid bandaids to draw the gunk out. it calmed down and i thought that was that. but today i looked at it again and it looked black. i freaked out, but then realized that the black was…hair. i had like the world's longest coil of ingrown armpit hair. that must've been growing all the years?? wtf.

share yours.

I like dancing, and when I rapidly move my upper body in a jerking motion, I get this feeling of being momentarily unable to breathe and like, feel icy wind in my throat accompanied by bad breath. I hope I don’t have some kind of tissue damage.

Anonymous 11058

I had some kind of rash on my arms in my senior year of high school. I had to wear long sleeve shirts that whole year. They tested it and determined it was some kind of biological thing like a parasite or fungus or something but they never figured out what it was. I stopped scratching and it went away.

Anonymous 11084

I have a weird skin-"slice" under my armpit. I hate it. It's ugly. It's not a bump like OP. It's more like a piece of weird skin just coming out of my skin and hanging there.

I thought about cutting it off, but I am just going to let a professional beauty surgeon handle this. Hopefully it won't cost more than a couple hundred euros.

I had some sort of cyst on my back and I just can't stop picking and squeezing stuff like that in the hope it will pop because it irritates me so much which most times makes it way worse, just like that one. It was quite deep under my skin and I tried to cut it open with a razor and accidently went a bit too far, bled like hell and became infected so the cyst got even larger but it just wouldn't give in. Fast forward a week sitting at the dinner table I dropped my spoon and bend down to pick it up, the weakened tissue from the X I cut into it gave up at that point and basically the whole thing unloaded right into my shirt like a nerd on his first date. It even made a faint popping sound. Looking at it my mom told me that I was quite precise with the razor and it looked like someone hollowed out a loaf of bread on my back because of the cuts. It bleed worse than the first time and even my underpants got stained. But the feeling to finally get rid of this thing was grade A 100% heaven.

What you experience is the fluid in your body gaining momentum trough your movement and since the solid part of your stomach moves way faster than the fluid the secondary gets pushed out like a simulated reflux.
The feeling of being unable to breathe is a instinctive reaction of your body to prevent you from inhaling your own stomach acid by accident during sudden movements since acid and lungs seldom get along well.
The icy wind in your throat is actually the feeling of the slightly caustic irritation caused by leaked stomach acid which is also the reason for the bad breath because hydrochloric acid with food crumbs is not quite the most delicious thing. Also for some reason chemically burned mucosa tissue can reek pretty bad.

Anonymous 11083

This is a rude question but do you have a sense of how each medication affects you? That's a huge hit every day, are you conscious of the you off-meds vs. the you on-meds in any objective sense? I'm probably not explaining this very well.

For example >>11045 Fluoxetine is what I used to take and (and this doesn't even compare to what you're taking) I was glad to be able to stop because I felt it made me really indifferent even to stuff I should have been happy or sad about. Do you have a sense of that with all your meds?


Ideal Body Type thread? Anonymous 1672[Reply]

What's your ideal body type, anons?

Are you into being thin, or curvy, or maybe fit? Were you born a cone shape but long to be a pear? Or maybe you're a banana but would rather be an hourglass?

I'd like to hear your opinions and what you're doing to get there!

Ah… I get it now. Tbh I was confused between hourglass and Inverted triangle as well.



I think I'm an inverted triangle just like you said. I do think my waist is a little bit wide tho.

Anonymous 11080

Which is more important to determine your body type, breast measurements or shoulder measurements? I have a small chest so they are not similar, but every body type description I find treats them as interchangeable.


Well breast, waist and hip measurements all contribute towards determining your body type.

Anonymous 11082

I guess I'm somewhere between a pear and a rectangle. I'm okay with my bodyshape except I wish my stomach was flatter.


ADD + Adderall Anonymous 11033[Reply]

Hello fellow Miners.
For a litany of reasons, I believe I had ADD.
How do I go about securing a (medicated) diagnosis?
Any advice? What I should avoid saying? etc.

You got a prescription adderall over an online appointment? Of the few times I've interacted with digital doctors they outright refused to prescribe anything that is considered Schedule 1. How the fuck did you trick an online doctor into getting you adderall?

Anonymous 11057

yeah I just made an appointment and then listed the reasons I thought I had add. I am only on 5 mg of adderall daily tho, maybe because it's such a low dose? It still seems to help.

like i said in my post, my ADHD keeps me from sleeping at night, even when i'm totally exhausted. i can be in physical pain from not sleeping and still be unable to sleep. i don't take any kind of medicine because i have a terrible phobia of drug addiction because of all of the addicts in my family.

has anyone else had a similar problem?

thanks so much for the advice, i'll look into all of that! i don't really own any older books like that so i usually read on my phone, unfortunately.

Anonymous 11054

You can save up for pretty cheap kindle paperwhite. That’s what I have. It has an internal light you can dim real low and read in the dark. It also can hook up to wifi and you can get a ton of library books. Then put it on airplane mode and you don’t have to rush to read them. As long as it’s in airplane mode, you’ll still have your books past the due date but you won’t get any fines.
You can get a refurbished kindle paperwhite for like $USD 109

Anonymous 11065

Do you have a public library nearby? They often have used bookstores where you can purchase used classic lit for just a few cents.
And you can also borrow for free of course, if you're diligent enough to return things on time.
Also, another tip I have is go to youtube and search for "guided meditation for add" and you'll find some that can guide you to focus on your body instead of the mess in your head. The ones that aren't made specifically for add can be really slow and boring and tough to focus on if you have a short attention span, but there are meditations out there for everyone these days, thankfully.

i guess this'll be the last post i make here –
got a nuclear stress test & they detected a small amount of blockage / plaque in a lower artery. the nurse told me it's totally reversible, i'll have to take meds + improve my diet & lifestyle.
depending on how much of the artery has been blocked i may have to get a stent, praying this isn't the case.
