How to Make Your Vagina Taste Good.

by | Mar 9, 2022 | Sex Education | 0 comments

If you’ve come here looking for product recommendations for your lovely vulva, you are looking in the wrong place. Believe it or not, you don’t need any of those awful ‘feminine hygiene products‘ that promise to clean your vagina or make it smell good. You don’t need to buy a product invented purely to profit from women’s insecurities. 

 

Instead, we’re going to talk about basic hygiene routines you can follow to just keep things tip-top down there as well as some other free lifestyle hacks to keep your body smelling fresh. Learn to love your vulva!

 

Let’s talk About Feminine Hygiene Products

 

Okay, first thing’s first, let’s talk about the elephant in the room. That aisle in the drug store. Those brightly colored, overly feminine-looking feminine washes, douches, wipes, deodorants, etc. 

 

Next time you see that aisle in the store, we want you to look at it and then walk on by. When seeking the answer of how to make your vagina smell good, the truth is that you do not need these products. 

 

They were invented to prey on our ‘oh my god, does my vulva smell?’ insecurity. They bring out adverts involving beautiful women living their best lives all because this feminine hygiene product makes their vulva smell like coconut and lime. We start to think: ‘oh, maybe my vulva should also smell like coconut and lime?’.

 

Then we feel like we have a smelly kitty until we cave in and pay the cosmetics company our hard-earned cash to make our intimate area smell like something it is not. Since when did a vulva ever look like a lime or a coconut? It is a VULVA, and inside is a VAGINA. These parts are supposed to smell like – shock horror–a vulva and a vagina. 

 

The whole feminine hygiene spiel is nothing more than a money hole. Do not fall into the trap. Your vagina is a self-cleaning oven, meaning that it’s basically supposed to look after itself. You don’t need some invented product to do the same job. And what’s more, these products can actually upset the pH of your vagina as opposed to doing anything good for it. So, please save your money. Your most sacred body part smells great already.

So How Can You Make Your Vagina Smell good?

I have to tell you something shocking – your vagina is not gonna smell like strawberries. Many women assume it will smell like something familiar to them, so when they actually smell their own body odor down there, they’re shocked and think that something is wrong with them. Vaginas do not smell like any kind of food item or perfume; they smell like humans. 

So if you think your vagina smells a bit different from anything else you’ve smelled before, it’s probably a perfectly normal natural scent. However, if you don’t engage in basic hygiene, your vagina might smell a bit funkier than normal, just like your body overall might smell a bit off when you haven’t showered for a while. So what can you do to make your vagina smell good?

  1. Take a shower or bath regularly: some people like to shower every day–even twice a day–but you should stick to what you are happy with. You know your hygiene routine best, so as long as you stick to that, your body and the intimate area should be smelling fresh all day long.
  2. Use ONLY water to wash your vulva: As already established, you don’t need any of those yucky feminine hygiene products, but if you want to focus some time on cleaning yourself down there, use water only. The easiest way to do it is in the shower: while standing under the stream of water, gently part your labia and allow the water running down your body to go between them. This is not essential; your vulva will probably be just as clean if you don’t do this, but if you like to ‘feel like you’ve washed down there’, this is the most basic way of doing it. Note: you should never try to wash your vagina (your internal part). However, with slow-running water, you can gently cleanse your vulva (clitoris, clitoral hood, inner labia, and outer labia).
  3. Cut down tobacco and alcohol use: Alcohol and tobacco can change the odor of your sweat all over your body, including from your vulva. So if alcohol and tobacco are a big part of your life, consider reducing them. I’m not saying that you should avoid having that Cosmopolitan on your date night. But if you drink a lot on a regular basis, maybe think about reducing your consumption.
  4. Hydrate: Ever wondered why your urine smells so putrid when you’re dehydrated? That might also be why your vulva smells a bit stronger than normal too. The solution? Fill up a massive bottle of water and get drinking, girl! Staying hydrated is health 101 anyway. So it’s a no-brainer.
  5. Avoid anything that might change your natural pH down there: This includes porous sex toys which could harbor harmful bacteria that could give you a nasty infection after your masturbation session. Most toys these days are made of body-safe materials; however, it’s always worth checking the details. Or, just shop our sex toy collection, as our products are crafted with nothing less than the highest quality medical-grade silicone and ABS. Silicone is the most popular body-safe material, and it feels so soft to touch on your body too. Winner! Other things that can upset your pH include: scented soaps, food and drink used during sex, leaving a tampon or cup in too long, certain condoms and lube such as flavored, tingling, warming, or cooling ones. It could be that your vagina never gets upset at you for using or doing any of these things, or it might scream at you every time. Get to know your vagina and what upsets it.
  6. Wear cotton underwear: Vagina-havers who wear cotton underwear generally have a lower chance of getting bacterial vaginosis, which is a type of vaginal inflammation caused by an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina, than those who wear panties made of synthetic materials. Cotton is breathable. So let your vulvas breathe, people!

What if my Vulva and Vagina Smell a Bit ‘Off’ Compared to Normal?

 

One of the main tell-tale signs of any kind of intimate infection is odor. So if you notice that your vagina or vulva smells different from normal, it might not be a bad idea to visit your gynecologist, especially if the smell is accompanied with discharge that is also unusual for you or you experience any intimate itching or stinging. 

 

The Climax

 

Keeping your intimate parts smelling great is not rocket science because, to be honest, they already smell good. Never forget that your vagina is a self-cleaning oven. It doesn’t matter what you throw at her; she can clean it up. Avoid that aisle at the drugstore like the plague, practice basic hygiene practices, stay hydrated and get to know what’s normal for you. Your sacred zone will always be smelling great if you do all of these things. 

 

Oh, and also remember that letting someone go down on you is a privilege. If someone ever tells you that you smell down there and you know perfectly well that you’re all healthy in that regard, dump this person ASAP. Decent grown-ups appreciate a vulva for what it is and what it smells like. Never try to make your pussy smell like coconut and lime for anyone or any company. *Cough* patriarchy.
