Oscars 2014: Vagina rejuvenation procedure offered in $80,000 goodie bags
Gifts are worth more than The Wolf of Wall Street's Jonah Hill was paid
Tapping into celebrities' assumed vanity, the LA-designed hampers offer weight loss shakes, personal training sessions, hair restoration surgery and the bizarre 'Orgasm Shot' treatment that "enhances the genital tissue of a woman".
Designed by Dr Charles Runels, said 'O Shot' claims to "help women cure urinary incontinence and sex problems" while "rejuvenating" the vagina. Because we can so see Jennifer Lawrence going in for that…
For $2,700 (£1,620), blood is injected into the upper vagina and clitoris to help with a range of sex complaints too often suffered by women "in silence". Male nominees are offered no sexual help - just assistance with balding.
The contents of 2014's bag of treats, revealed by US magazines, also include the more usual delights of luxury vodka, fine art, aerial circus lessons and…pepper spray guns ( scroll to see list).
For some reason, probably to do with how much Americans love their dogs, plenty of pet care products are also thrown in to the mix, along with holiday packages to Hawaii, Las Vegas, Japan and the Canadian Rockies.
Hill accepted the modest sum (Hollywood’s standards, not ours) of $60,000 to shoot Martin Scorsese’s movie because he was so keen for the role.
