Posts that I like to categorise as “things you shouldn’t put in your vagina” pop up in my social newsfeeds in a weird sort of cycle. Firstly, it’ll be someone genuinely wondering about a product or practice.
Then the screenshots start appearing in various groups along with lots of discussion. Then maybe a link or two to a product you can buy online. Maybe a blog post extolling the virtues of certain practices or products.
Then the rebuttals start appearing (including a couple I’ve written myself!).
Before you know it, it’s radio silence on that particular thing or things you shouldn’t put in your vagina. Until someone sees an old post or article, and the cycle repeats. So, I thought it was time for a handy little round-up guide.
