It’s time to winterize your vagina

I know you have all just put your decorative gourd attachments on your vibrators, sugared yourself with a candied ball of maple syrup and sweet potato, and spruced up your lady cornucopia with a pumpkin spice douche, but according to the Daily Mirror the Ice Queen cometh and she’s a cruel mistress. It’s winter vagina time, … Continue reading

“Hot pants! DIY Gynecology” is a Hot Mess

A few weeks ago someone suggested I take a look at the book Hot Pants! Do It Yourself Gynecology and Herbal Remedies. After reading all 95 pages a more apt title would be From Camelot to the Clap, Ancient Gynecology for a Modern Woman. A Herbalist and a Radio Activist turn Fables into Feminism. Because that, … Continue reading

Teen Vogue’s Problematic Summer Vagina

Teen Vogue wants women to have their “Best Summer Vagina Ever,” and no that is not a recommendation for a Yankee Candle to take to the beach. The title alone is an issue because it suggests that A) everything in the genital tract is the vagina and B) that “summer vagina” is a thing. It’s … Continue reading

Scented latex underwear to improve “freshness” for oral sex? It’s a vagina, not a Yankee Candle.

Lorals is trying to raise money on Indiegogo for latex underwear for women to wear during oral sex. My first impression was this could be an alternative to dental dams or cut up condoms! A hands free approach that does not require scissors would be great. And then I watched the video. Lorals isn’t going … Continue reading

What you shouldn’t put in your vagina: 2017’s greatest hits

It seemed as if the medical Internets of 2017 was as the mercy of a random vagina-woo generator. No sooner had I written an impassioned plea about why substance X shouldn’t go into the vagina I was getting tweets and Facebook messages about object Y. I blame Gwyneth Paltrow. I mean why not, but if … Continue reading

Vaginal Vicks VapoRub, oh my God people just don’t

I swear there is a random vaginal product generator and people just spin the wheel to discover what shit they can insert today. Which brings me to Vicks VapoRub. In the vagina and on the vulva. Oh my GOD. Before we get to the science, such as it is, let’s talk about the smell. Your … Continue reading

Don’t cleanse your vagina with a cucumber. Please.

In what seems like post #323 explaining that vaginas don’t need cleaning I present the cucumber vagina cleanse. Apparently some women are peeling cucumbers inserting them vaginally and then twisting them around for up to 20 minutes to refresh or cleanse or flush or something. This isn’t just a weird Facebook thing one person did … Continue reading

I’m wary of the new Scandinavian “vaginal” highlighter

A “vaginal highlighter” is now upon us. Sigh. Before we get into the specifics the editors who have approved the various headlines about this product from the Perfect V™ (ugh) need an anatomy lesson because no one is selling a vagina highlighter or make up, this is vulvar product. I have devoted an entire post to … Continue reading

Don’t Glitter Bomb Your Vagina

Lots of people love glitter and while cosmetic grade glitter seems safe enough for a variety of makeup applications some enterprising person who goes by Madam.Butterflie on Instagram is packaging it up as vaginal “Passion Dust”. Because it is 2017 and this is where we are. Why would a woman want to do this you ask? … Continue reading

Vaginal ozone therapy is dangerous. Just don’t do it.

My day often starts with one of my awesome Twitter followers sending me a link to an “unusual” vaginal therapy. This morning it was a doozy.  Yes, vaginal ozone therapy. I can’t respond to every one, but this is so unethical and has such potential for harm I felt compelled to respond. First I had … Continue reading
