I’m talking plastic surgery or genitalia surgery.

No… I’m barely sold on brushing my teeth, I would start with basic hygiene and fitness first.

Not in a million years. I’ll work out, stay in shape, be hygienic, and work on my style, but if someone doesn’t love me for me. or like me for me, than I don’t need anyone that shallow.

Would a new prostate make me more or less appealing?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@LuckyGuy Well there’s only one way to check that out, and I ain’t that good friends with anyone. I think you are fine just the way you are.

LuckyGuy's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe There are some distinct advantages – and some disadvantages.
I like the “no mess” feature and the ability to repeat as often as desired.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@LuckyGuy Amazing you can see both the advantages and the disadvantages and find some positives.
@marksonos Can you learn anything from his answers?

No, I would never change my body.
God made me a special way, and I’m thankful for that. Even if I would be forever alone, I would never change my body.

I have to admit to being naïve to this, so I Googled “genitalia surgery” and found a story on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1MUunMtne0

If you were to consider doing a procedure like that it should be because you want it for you, not because you think those of the opposite sex would want.

Not to attract the opposite sex, no. My husband thinks I’m hot (or, in his words during sex, “so fucking hot”), and I don’t really care what other men think of me. If I were to get cosmetic surgery, it would be for me.

If the opposite sex or same sex doesn’t like the way you look tell em to fuck off you are the way you was made.

No. If my genitalia or any other part of me didn’t suit a man or even men, that’s his/their problem.

No. I wouldn’t have plastic surgery at all unless I was viciously attacked by a chimp.

XOIIO's avatar

Plastic surgery wouldn’t fix this.

gailcalled's avatar

Never, but I might perform surgery on the brain of anyone who seriously suggested that I do it. (Cosmetic genitalia surgery? The thought is grotesque unless a child is truly deformed.)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@gailcalled Grotesque? It is so out the other side I cannot see grotesque from there.

gailcalled's avatar

Feel free to find another adjective. Any ideas?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@gailcalled As appealing as eating uncleaned chitlins?

gailcalled's avatar

Nah. I’ll stick with grotesque. Your expression is colorful but far too folksy for a horror of such magnitude.

anniereborn's avatar

No, but I would do it for myself

Symbeline's avatar

Pfffft.

NO WAY
God made you the way you are for a reason….....your body belongs to God and you have no right to change it

@lornahayes
FYI, slavery has been illegal for quite a while now.
I am no one’s property, and I can do to my body whatever the hell I please.

lornahayes's avatar

Can i suggest you read Genesis. The first book in the Bible.

ragingloli's avatar

Can I suggest you read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights?
It trumps your book of ancient lies.

Two days after I had my cancerous prostate removed I was stumbling around the house, wearing only a pair of socks and underwear stuffed with an incontinence pad. My chest and abdomen were shaved in a ridiculous pattern to accommodate the 5 incisions and EKG contacts. I was unshaven, unshowered, a catheter coming out of the leg hole going down into a pee collection bag that was held in a 5 gallon bucket that I attached to a camera strap slung over my shoulder. I had another belt wrapped around my waist to keep the mess all close to my body so it did not get caught on anything.
In that state I happened to walk by the bathroom and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I got a flash of the Bible quote Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image” and I had to laugh out loud. The poor guy!

The surgery kept me alive and healthy . In general most members of the opposite sex find breathing partners more appealing.

Use the gym for you. Don’t use surgery unless you have a giant mole on the end of your nose. Even then why do it if not for yourself?
