If there was ever a moment to praise whatever God you believe in, it would be now. Can you actually for a second imagine being a woman? We thought waxing and menstruation was bad enough, but after seeing this odd-ball list of the things women use on their vaginas, we've never been so thankful for our packages.
Speaking of packages, men don't really mess around down there too much. Er, well not for general maintenance reasons, anyway. We might manscape every now and again, but herbal sticks? Steam? Yogurt-soaked tampons? Marijuana? No freakin' thank you! Actually, we'll take the weed — for smoking purposes only, please.
We figure the actually medical reasoning behind this sh-t is of little interest to y'all, but, you never know! We'll be sure to throw a little medical jargon your way à la Fitness Magazine. Otherwise, we'd just like to throw in our 2-baffled-cents.
Herbal Vagina Sticks
"Promoted as a product that will help you balance the pH levels in your vagina, internally cleanse (translation: shed dead skin), and "tighten up" down there"
Hm, interesting ...we were under the impression that vaginas cleansed themselves, but WTF do we know? Additionally, the idea of tightening up anything down there is just an uncomfortable image.
"Yes, the warmth enhances blood flow just as the treatment says, but you risk suffering a burn on your skin down below."
So. Damn. Cringeworthy. Just imagine burning your finger. OK, now imagine burning the most sensitive part of your body. OUCH, yeah?
"A marijuana-laced oil that essentially allows you to absorb the drug vaginally and de-stress, in theory enhancing libido and leading to a better orgasm.
Not going to lie, that doesn't sound all that bad. De-stress? Lovely. Enhanced libido? Yes, please. Better orgasm? That's never really a problem for us dudes, but, still — sounds awesome.
"Using yogurt as a DIY remedy for yeast infections has been around for years, and now people are slathering it on tampons before inserting for a quick-and-dirty application process."
Well, guys ...we hate to say this, but never in our lives will we eat yogurt again. There's NOTHING wrong with tampons in the vagina. However, the idea of a vagina with a tampon soaked in yogurt? Eh, not for us. We promise we'd feel the same way about a butt-plug soaked in yogurt. Dairy and private parts are not a match-made.
