It’s important to understand your body. Especially your privates. A woman’s private area can seem complex, because in some respects it is. But if you have the knowledge to treat your vagina right, it will have great benefits to your overall health. There is so much misinformation out there, that we decide to set the record straight. For instance, often times in the media we see women orgasming within seconds of sexual intercourse, but the fact is, not all woman can even get off from penetration. Really, one source says 75% of women need stimulation of the clitoris to achieve climax. And that’s not the only thing, There are many many more that you should know of. Here are 11.
#1. Avoid the sweets. Some woman say that taking some sugar and rubbing it down there will make it taste better for your partner. Don’t do it! Because vaginas are self-cleaning, rubbing sugar on it will upset the pH balance which could cause yeast infections.
#2. Keep it dry. During your showers, try not to get too much hot water in your privates. It may cause drying and irritation. No need to use cold, though. Warm is perfectly fine. When you get out, be sure to pat the outer areas dry.
#3. Decorations: Vajazzling become a popular trend amongst women a few years ago. Basically, you add sparkly gems outside the area after a wax. While that’s cool, avoid putting anything inside and keep it closer to the stomach area if you can.
#4. Tight clothes: Every woman has at least one pair of skinny jeans in her closet, but did you know they could be hurting your vagina? “Everything is only good in moderation,” says gynecologist Dr. Ava Shamban. “If tight clothing is worn too regularly, it can sometimes bring unwanted side effects such as yeast infections or pressure acne.” No need to get rid of your skinny’s all together, but avoid everyday wear.
