In case you’re looking for a holiday gift, the Wall St. Journal (Virgin Territory: U.S. Women Seek A Second First Time) has an idea –“revirginization.” Apparently it’s turning out to be a big business.
For her 17th wedding anniversary, Jeanette Yarborough wanted to do something special for her husband. In addition to planning a hotel getaway for the weekend, Ms. Yarborough paid a surgeon $5,000 to reattach her hymen, making her appear to be a virgin again.
Recovery is no big deal as far as surgery goes –six to eight weeks with a low risk of infection.
On the other hand, Dr. Young [head of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ emerging-trends task force] says, “it’s a pretty expensive thing to do for one night.”
