A Spa for Those Women Concerned About Pelvic Fitness?

By Natasha Singer
July 3, 2008

THESE are the generations of cosmetic medicine:

First came the “medical spa,” or medi spa, offering dermatology services in a retail setting. The medi spa begat the dental spa, bringing tooth bleaching to storefronts nationwide. The dental spa begat the podiatry spa.

And now comes the first medi spa in Manhattan wholly dedicated to strengthening and grooming a woman’s genital area. Phit — short for pelvic health integrated techniques — is to open this month on East 58th Street.

(snip)

Dr. Romanzi likes to call the vaginal workouts she prescribes “personal training.” Clients could also use an in-office electrostimulation machine to improve pelvic muscle tone or buy a device for home use. Dr. Romanzi said that such treatments are intended to improve bladder control; she said pelvic training may also lead to more intense orgasms.

Welcome to the era of the gyno spa.

With the ubiquity of pornography, the pelvis had already become a marketable area for modification, ranging from the Brazilian bikini wax to genital surgery referred to as vaginal “rejuvenation.” Doctors have even coined a term for such genital “beautification”: cosmetogynecology or cosmogynecology.

The advent of the pelvic spa, however, takes body fixation to a new level, furthering the idea that there is no female body part that cannot be tightened, plumped, trimmed or pruned.Continued...

“Whether the marketing is pushing the women or women are pushing the marketing, I don’t think anybody knows,” Dr. Berenson said.

Dr. Romanzi said her goal was to teach women how to properly perform Kegel exercises, intended to strengthen the sling-shaped muscle that supports the bladder, vagina and rectum. Gynecologists sometimes suggest such pelvic physiotherapy for minor vaginal laxity after childbirth or for mild urinary incontinence.

But Dr. Romanzi believes all women might benefit from such exercises.

“If you can vote and you have a vagina, you should do these,” she said. “It’s the dental floss of feminine fitness.”

Okay, I give up now.

There's nothing wrong with kegel exercises. I can do them at my desk while I'm typing. Like.... now.

There's something pretty wrong with paying $150 bucks to have your "pelvic fitness" evaluated against some bogus standard. I'm not even going to go into the whole laser "uplift" issue.

We should have a Pun Jar here. Everytime you make an awful pun, you would have to donate $5 bucks to CU. We could be running this site off a Cray in about 6 months. :p

I thought Shannon covered being Satan for everything east of the Mississippi.

Hey, I'm hearing that Bob Dylan Song about Knock Knoc Knockin' on heavens' door....but it's the Guns N Roses version.

It IS Shannon.

So this is like Coast To Coast? I never did figure out which line I should call.

Let's drag this thread back on topic: you sport a Manzillion, don't you? :p

Cray's are so yesterday.Big Blue's are the latest and greatest !

IBM will build a new supercomputer for the U.S. Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration that uses the Cell Broadband Engine processor, originally designed for electronic gaming. The “hybrid” computer will also use x86 processors from Advanced Micro Devices and will be capable of a sustained speed of up to 1,000 trillion calculations per second, or one petaflop.

Computers used for The latest and greatest for the DOE's Simulation Of Nuclear Warhead Designs.They can't test so they model and simulate every stage of detonation on a super MPP (Massivly Parallel Processor).The models are constantly being refined to reflect new latest thinking on what will happen with each change !

"Techniques for Warhead Design

There are seven broad categories of techniques that can assist in the design of new warheads without full-scale testing:

Nuclear explosions ranging from a few tens of pounds to a few hundred tons of TNT equivalent or less that are not quite full-scale explosions, but which yield most of the crucial information about the functioning of the weapon, other than its exact explosive yield.

Small-scale nuclear explosions with a nuclear yield of a few tens of pounds or less (hydronuclear testing).
Tests of many of the properties of nuclear charges using materials that cannot sustain chain reactions (hydrodynamic testing).

Experiments in nuclear fusion to develop understanding of the thermonuclear component of weapons as well of the deuterium-tritium boosters that make the fission components of warheads more efficient.
Computer modeling.

Theoretical models and calculations (other than computer models).
Other related experiments, field tests, theoretical work, and modeling exercises, for instance using nuclear reactors, conventional explosives, etc. to determine the properties of various components and subassemblies of warheads. This includes work on basic science in various disciplines such as nuclear physics and radiochemistry.

Codenamed Roadrunner, the new machine will be installed at DOE's Los Alamos National Laboratory. Designed to conserve space and power consumption, the system will incorporated advanced cooling and power management technology and will occupy 12,000 square feet of floor space, approximately the size of three basketball courts.
