Vaginas are a bit finicky and kind of bitchy. A lot of things make them mad. Plus, their climate is like a tropical rainforest. So they sometimes require attention and care to stay in tip-top shape.
To keep a vagina healthy, you have to do (and not do) a lot of shit. Vaginas need lots of airing out to avoid too much moisture, they shouldn’t be left in a wet bathing suit, they should be rinsed out with warm water daily.
And most importantly, you should never put anything in or around the vagina that doesn’t belong in it.
This last one can get a bit tricky. With so many things you CAN physically put in a vagina, how can you know what you should and should not put inside of it? When you’re engaging in sexual acts with the vagina, it’s easy to get lost in a moment and forget the delicate balance of vaginal health.
What should your vagina smell like? Post continues after video.
To make things easy, I’ve made a list of some of the common mistakes people make when it comes to the blessed lady-flower. Here are 6 things you should never put inside of a vagina:
1. Flavoured lube
Flavoured lube is one of my all-time favourite things. It has revolutionised the way I give blow jobs. It takes away that skin-y dick taste, and replaces it with something delicious, like mint or mango or strawberry. While flavoured lube really is the shit, you cannot put it in a vagina.
Flavoured lubes contain sugar, which can cause an overgrowth of yeast. Yummy! Who doesn’t want a sexual encounter to end with a yeast infection?
Even if the lube is sugar-free, you still shouldn’t put it in a vagina. The artificial flavouring in flavoured lube can cause vaginal irritation and itching. The only lubes you should put in a vagina are water-based or oil-based. If you can stick to something all-natural like Jimmy Jane’s organic lube, Sustain all-natural lube, or 100% all-natural (and my personal fav) coconut oil, that would be ideal.
