You might be feeling creative and experimental when it comes to your [email protected]!na, but this does not give you the go-ahead to put every little thing that tickles your fancy in it.
Sure, the [email protected]!na is capable of providing pleasure and when well stimulated, can make you feel really, really good, but this does not give you the go-ahead to put every little thing that tickles your fancy in it.
Here seven things that have no business being in there.
After just a little wear and tear, vibrators made from soft, flexible plastic, or jelly-like rubber can develop tiny nicks and grooves where microbes can hide. Insert the toy into your [email protected]!na, and you may contract an infection. Go with silicone, stainless steel, or hard plastic pleasure products instead, which won’t break down and degrade. And though it’s probably the last thing you want to do after a [email protected]:’ session, make sure you wash your toy with soap and water after you use it.
Fruits and Veggies
Even organic produce that’s been scrubbed clean still carries bacteria. These wouldn’t be a threat to your digestive tract, but introduce the microbes to your private parts, and you’ll upset the normal balance of bacteria in the [email protected]!na, potentially triggering a bacterial or yeast infection.
Pubic Hair Dye
You might be feeling creative by experimenting with colours down there but you should know that the skin around your pubes is way more sensitive than your scalp. If the chemicals in the dye make contact with your labia (not to mention get past your [email protected]!nal opening), you could be in for some [email protected]:’-postponing burning and pain. Stick to trying out different hair colors above the neck only.
Douches and Intimate Sprays
Not only are douches, intimate sprays, and [email protected]!nal wipes totally unnecessary (the [email protected]!nal canal is self-cleansing; that’s what discharge is for), using them can boost your odds of infection. They contain ingredients and chemicals that can dry out the [email protected]!na, making you feel irritated and increasing the risk that you develop tiny tears in your [email protected]!na that bacteria and viruses can enter through. Keep your ladybits clean with just gentle soap and water.
Cream and Chocolate Toppings
Turning your naked body into an ice cream sundae sounds [email protected]:’y, except for the fact that whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and other sweet toppings are loaded with sugar, and introducing sugar into your [email protected]!nal area can mess with your pH levels and lead to a yeast infection.
Hair Removal Cream
Often the chemicals in cream or lotion depilatories are harsh, resulting in tiny abrasions that leave your [email protected]!nal area open to infection. Another danger is an allergic reaction, leaving you with red bumps and serious itching. Even though shavingtends to leave you with a slight rash or sensitivity for a day or so, it’s safer than a chemical depilatory . . . as long as you don’t use it past your outer labia.
Anything with a Scent
The perfumes used to give a specific scent to some types of toilet paper, novelty condoms, tampons, even soaps and body washes contain additives that leave some women with itching, inflammation, and rashes on or around the [email protected]!na. Not all women have problems with these, but it’s probably better to stay away from them than find out the hard way that they cause a bad reaction on your skin.
