Penis Facial: Boys' Pain, Vain Women's Gain

I can’t decide if this new penis facial treatment (via Sarah Hoyt) is misandric, racist or both:

The secret to clear, glowy skin? It’s inside you. Actually.

On Thursday, Page Six reported that “Ocean’s 8” stars Cate Blanchett and her pal Sandra Bullock had tried the “penis facial” with luxe NYC aesthetician Georgia Louise.

The Hollywood EGF Facial — a $650 treatment — involves a cleanse, chemical peel, microneedling, an “electrifying” face mask and a so-called “Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)” — a serum that happens to be derived from the foreskin of Korean newborns. The substance supposedly helps generate collagen and elastin in the skin.

It’s just one of many borderline cannibalistic — and inevitably expensive — beauty products wooing the rich and vain these days.

So it’s okay to use a Korean baby boy’s foreskin to make a Hollywood woman happy? Why is it just Korean babies that are being used for their foreskin? Why is a painful event like a circumcision being used for these vain women’s jollies?

Where are these innocent baby boys’ #Metoo movements?
