Another Post from the land of 'What Were They Thinking?'

I got an e-mail from the lovely Koko the other day alerting me to a product she had stumbled across on the net. Here's is yet another example of why we really need to question and research before purchasing crap on-line.

This lovely gem, called 'Secret Ceres' supposedly 'tightens and heals the vagina while simultaneously stimulating the body’s own cleansing mechanism as well as the regeneration of skin tissue in a completely natural manner'. What is this amazing product and how does it work? It's a pumice stone for your woohoo. No, I am not making this up. This little thing is actually a small phallic-shaped piece of rough clay which causes 'exfoliation of the callus inside of the vagina'. Insert it for 2 to 5 minutes, two to three times a week and you'll have a tighter, more youthful, more beautiful vagina!

The people who make this thing obviously have no understanding, or perhaps no interest, of anatomy and physiology. I don't care what you've been doing, you don't have callouses in your vagina. You just don't. The tissues inside the vagina are not the same as the epidermis. It simply does not develop callouses. The epithelium in the vagina behaves very differently than our skin - it's made for absorbing and excreting fluids. The vagina is, essentially, a self-cleaning unit. It does not need to be scrubbed down like your rough cracked heels. In fact, I think the only way you might be able to get a callous in your vagina is by using this crazy thing.

This thing actually scares the hell out of me. I can't even fathom the kind of damage you could do by putting something rough and bumpy into your vagina and moving it around. That is going to abrade and irritate the vaginal tissue which will not only be uncomfortable and difficult to heal, it will also create tears into which bacteria and viruses and easily enter the bloodstream. This thing, in my opinion, is a raging STI is a black velvet pouch. It baffles me how people can sell stuff like this. Please don't buy this thing. If you want to have a youthful, beautiful vagina, use a gentle water-based or silicone lube when you put anything inside it, put only body-safe toys and devices inside it, and go see your doctor for a pap test regularly.
