While I'm not sure who they are, Vajazzling is currently popular in some scenarios.
Jennifer Loff Hewitt, who promoted artificial diamond treatment on late-night television, admitted to George Lopez with a smile that, in fact, she is currently having a binge.
Before we proceed, let me record directly: although many say the process is wrapped in a crystal to the vagina, they are actually attached to the lower pubic area, right above the vulva
If you stick the shiny part on the real vagina, menstruation and/or sex will soon ruin the design.
