Seems like there is a book for every kind of lifestyle nowadays. From Superhead’s- Video Vixen to Evelyn Lozada’s- Inner Circle, I knew the best was yet to come:
A woman who spent approximately $15,000 on illegal butt and hip injections has shed light on the secretive world of black market cosmetic procedures in a new book.
In a raw and honest account, Vanity Wonder, 30, a mother-of-two from America’s Midwest, has revealed how she became addicted to silicone shots to increase the size of her behind.
Shot Girls sees her detail her own experiences of seeking out and having the injections, and how she became an assistant to a black market practitioner. ‘I started in 2006 – this is when everything was hush, hush, hush. You had to search to find this stuff,’ she recalled. ‘Now anyone on the corner will inject you with whatever they buy at the Kwik-E-Mart or at the gas station.’
Vanity is, of course, referring to stories that have flooded the news in recent months, of deaths after women were injected with Fix-A-Flat tyre sealant and even cement.
She admits that her own first experience with butt shots could have been just as dangerous, as she had no idea what she was injected with – and still doubts the answer she was given.
‘The first two times, I was injected by a lady… when we finally asked her [what we were being injected with], she said soybean oil. So my first two times I had no idea what I was being injected with.
‘All the rest were done by [a different] lady, and it was medical grade silicone.’
She says the difference in the two substances was huge. The silicone, she says, is ‘a lot more moveable and jello-like. The ‘soybean oil’ made the treated areas ‘stiff and hard’.
Describing her butt now, Vanity said: ‘Because that original work has been covered so many times, it’s all jiggly and very moveable. A lot of people are amazed.’
Though Shot Girls serves as a warning to women who may be tempted by the low cost and fast results of black market injections, Vanity admits many still ask her where she can get them.
‘The book review from customers has been 95per cent positive. It is those who haven’t who are critical.’
But though some readers admit that they thought about getting black market butt injections, but now definitely won’t, others remain tempted.
‘Women are still begging me, “Please tell me where to get them from!”‘ Vanity admits. ‘They are definitely chasing this.
‘That’s the reason why women are dying. They are so thirsty for these, they go to whoever they can find. Then people want to exploit this and that’s where the problems come in.’
She admits she stopped when she was nearly sent to jail, and she realised that if anything were to happen to her, she would not be around to take care of her sons. It was a reality check that cut her addiction short.
