Beijing Lingerie Exhibit: Like Marilyn Monroe, the lips make the imagination fly

August 3, 2008

As a symbol, the lip is as powerful as the recent International Lingerie Design Exhibits held in Beijing, China last July 31, 2008. A pretty Japanese model walks off with this huge fiery red lips which seductively hang below the belly button and in between her legs covering the groin.

Anatomists like to call the lips labia (pl.) aka labium (sing.) They appear a shade darker in sartorial splendor, but nonetheless feel soft and supple in situ, juxtaposed with an area called mons veneris (Mound of Venus.) Interestingly, some lips are minor and others are considered major, hence the terms labium majus or labia minoris.

Beautiful lips that smirk don’t generally need collagen injections which enhance the looks of a mouth that pouts. Yet, like Marilyn Monroe, a damsel’s red fiery band of vermillion muscle guarding the buccal stoma make imagination fly like a wayward butterfly. Photo Credit: Reuters =0=
