Vibrators made of rubber or soft plastic
Even after short use, such devices form hidden scratches and cracks, in which many pathogens nest. "Therefore, in contact with the vaginal mucosa, there is a high probability of infection," Jane minkin, gynecologist, doctor of medicine, professor at the Yale School of Medicine. “To avoid such a development, it is worth choosing products made of silicone, hard plastic or stainless steel — they are much less susceptible to deformation.” And yet - although this is probably the last thing I want to think about in the final of an erotic game, but still, do not be lazy to wash the vibrator thoroughly with warm water and soap after use.
Fruits and vegetables
We upset the fans of "cooking" in sexual games: the surface of even purely washed organic fruits and vegetables is covered with a lot of germs. “They do not pose a danger to the gastrointestinal tract, which cannot be said about our intimate organs,” says Jane Minkin. “Getting on the vaginal mucosa, microorganisms disrupt the natural microflora, thus causing infection and inflammation.” Therefore, fruit and vegetables place in the mouth, but not in the genital area.
Vegetation in the lower body, as well as on the head, represents a wide field for bold creative experiments with color. However, the skin in the intimate area is much more sensitive and vulnerable than the skin of the scalp. "The chemical components that are contained in hair dye, falling on the labia minora can cause inflammation," says Jane Minkin. - This unpleasant condition is accompanied by burning, pain and discomfort after sexual intercourse. Use industrial dyes strictly for their intended purpose - to dye hair that grows above the neck. " Let the label means or intimate stylist and convince you of the opposite!
Oil based lubricants
When buying a lubricant, carefully read what is written on the label. Does the product contain mineral oil? Return the bottle back to the shelf. “Oil-based preparations are very difficult to completely remove from the vagina,” says Jane Minkin. - Staying on the mucous membrane of the vagina, the lubricant turns into a wonderful nutrient medium for various kinds of bacteria. The second danger is that the oil can damage the surface of the condom and it will tear during intercourse. Thus, you risk getting pregnant or becoming infected with any sexually transmitted infection. Therefore, give preference to water-based or silicone-based products. They are safe for the vaginal microflora and the latex surface of the condom. ”
Spray for intimate organs
First, there is no need to use such tools: our vagina is a wonderful self-cleaning organ. Secondly, being carried away by various kinds of intimate sprays, you risk getting an unpleasant infection. “These products contain chemical components that dry the vaginal mucosa,” says Jane Minkin. - As a result, micro-injuries and cracks appear on it. And this is the gateway for various infections — bacteria and viruses easily penetrate the body through damage. ” Remember, all you need for personal hygiene is warm water and good soap.
Whipped cream and chocolate
Let it look erotic, but whipped cream and chocolate sauce is not the place in the zone of intimate organs, gynecologists say. “These foods contain sugar,” says Jane Minkin. - Getting on the vaginal mucosa, it can disrupt its natural pH. Result? All the same infectious diseases and inflammation. If you really want to turn into a sweet woman, pour cream and chocolate above the waist.
