People in the adult entertainment industry have been using intimate area skin lightening products for years. So the look that regular people are wanting to achieve isn't natural anyway. Most people have darkened skin in these areas, it's perfectly natural. The darkening occurs for a number of reasons including hormonal changes, aging and friction.
