'Love your vulva the way it is' - Designer vaginas are dangerous, warns Dr Eve

Clinical sexologist Dr Eve has warned women against injecting or inserting substances into their vaginas in an attempt to improve appearance and sexual performance.

So-called 'designer vaginas' are created through various surgical or non-surgical procedures.
