Your Vagina is not a Disco Party - Please Don't Put That Up There: Part Five
Just when I thought I'd heard it all, I hear something new. If you thought tiny vagina tea bags were ridiculous, check out Passion Dust Intimacy Capsules. These gel capsules are filled with edible glitter. When you put them in your vagina, they melt and explode glitter all through your love tunnel. According to the folks who make this product this will make 'the experience of lovemaking that much more fun and enjoyable for you and your partner'. No, I am not making this up.
Of course, Dr. Jen Gunter, whom I adore, has been all over this one already. She lists potential health concerns of this product as bacterial infections, yeast, and granulomas.
I found the ingredient list on the webpage and I'm not too concerned about what's in it except that it lists two starches that I'm not familiar with. Those things could contain sugars or something else that would upset ph balance.
I would never go so far as to say that this is safe, but I doubt that it would cause serious problems. My biggest concern about it is that glitta is 4eva!!! I'm pretty sure that if you get glitter in your yoni, it will be there until the day you die.
My question is why???? Why would you want to do this? The site says that "The flavor is sweet like candy but not overly sweet, just enough to make your lover feel that your Yara (water-lady or little butterfly) is what all vaginas are supposed to look, feel and taste like; soft, sweet and magical!" Who says my vagina is supposed to be soft, sweet and magical? I'm a human being! My vagina looks, smells and tastes like a vagina, not a 4 year-old's birthday cupcake.
To me, this is just another case of someone making a buck off of making people feel bad about their vaginas. Once again, we are being told that they just are not pretty enough, or good smelling enough, or just generally not enough for men (because these vajayjay glitter bomb people don't recognize that sometimes people with vaginas have sex with women).
In spite of the fact that glitter is forever, I understand that some people love it. Being sparkly is fun and some people are just sparkly people. But you can be as sparkly as a glitter factory after a grenade and still not put it in your vagina. It's just not necessary.
Your vulva and your vagina are beautiful even without the sparkle. You don't need this.
At The Tickle Trunk, we talk about toys that are for outside play and toys that are for inside play. Glitter really needs to be an outside toy.
