V@gina P!lls Cl@iming To Make You Taste ‘Sweeter’ Are Complete Bullsh*t

Everywhere we turn, products promise to drastically improve our lives by making our hair fuller, our skin softer, and our v@ginas sweeter.

Wait, what? make our v@ginas sweeter? No, that wasn’t some bizarre freudian slip – pills which promise to do exactly that actually exist.

So much so that in recent weeks, our social media feeds have been getting inundated with posts promising to ‘enhance the flavour of your secretions’ – like that’s an entirely normal thing to advertise.

As though ladies needed yet any more reasons to dislike something about their bodies or to doubt their own self-worth, v@gina pills are here to make us question whether our private parts are normal.

Disclaimer: they’re, although companies selling these products wouldn’t want you to believe such an absurd thing because then you wouldn’t buy into their marketing.

Their intention is clear: to target women’s insecurities about how our v@ginas taste, look and smell.

One particular product has gained traction on social media due to influencers advertising (and shamelessly promoting) the pills on their page.

My Sweet V promises to make your ‘se-xual secretions taste fully yummy and bring your se-xual satisfaction and performance to incredible new heights’.

Pictures of ladies holding the product as they pose in their undergarment have been posted all over Instagram, with captions promising to ‘make you taste better than the next girl’ and offering the secret to a happy relationship.

The secret to a happy relationship is, in fact, finding somebody who loves you for who you’re and (get this) somebody who won’t complain about the taste of your v@gina because they enjoy it just the way it’s.

The secret to a happy relationship isn’t, therefore, using a bull-shit product designed to alter the way you taste and smell naturally, because – and i cannot reiterate this enough – it’s a load of bull-shit.

 

People quickly cottoned on to the bizarre promotions, with actor and activist Nicola Thorp posting a screenshot of one such Instagram post alongside a series of tweets calling out the product.

In one such tweet, Nicola wrote: Now they’re ‘influencing’ us to take pills to make us taste ‘sweeter’

‘You should always taste better than the next chick’?!?!?

FA-CK OFF

The equality campaigner quickly followed up this point by linking out to many ‘meme’ accounts on Instagram who were promoting the product, making her stance clear.

While one meme made the bold assertion that you should try out My Sweet V ‘if they’re not obsessed with tasting U’, Nicola fired back: ‘If they’re not obsessed with tasting you then perhaps you should try out somebody who is.’ Amon to that sister.

Jameela Jamil re-tweeted Nicola’s original thread, slamming the corporations behind such sweets as ‘dumb’ and ‘offensive’.

The actor and activist then made the valid point that such companies wouldn’t think to sell gummies to men to make their spe-rm taste sweeter, because nothing is perceived to be ‘wrong’ about spe-rm in the first place.

Which is exactly the problem. By providing us with a so-called ‘solution’, these companies are instilling in ladies the idea there’s something inherently wrong with us that needs to be ‘fixed’.

In other words, they want us to believe our v@ginas are unnatural in {some way and need products in order to taste a certain way or smell differently to what they presently do.

By getting ladies to model these product while sharing generic captions about how much they’ve improved their se-x lives, ladies everywhere buy into the notion that perhaps, just maybe, there’s something drastically wrong with them.

But there isn’t. V@ginas naturally have an odor, just as semen has a taste. If you’re healthy, v@ginal discharge and the scent associated with it’s perfectly normal.

Anyone who’s tried to make you feel bad about the way you taste or smell down there, just because they think you need to taste like some sort of breakfast smoothie, simply isn’t price your time.

UNILAD spoke to Catriona Boffard, a clinical se-xologist and psychotherapist, who regularly works with ladies who have an extremely negative body image, in particular with regards to their genitals.

Catriona stressed how pills such as these only increase the shame and dis-gust often felt by ladies in relation to their v@ginas are therefore extremely ‘detrimental to women’s genital image’.

The se-xologist stated that while certain things do lead to an unpleasant or unusual smell – such as smo-king, processed foods, an untreated STI, or microorganism infe-ction – the scent associated with a healthy v@gina is completely normal.

Catriona explained: So many ladies I speak to feel ashamed about the way they think they taste to a partner, which would only be any perpetuated by a product like this cla-iming to ‘improve’ how she tastes.

All women’s v@ginas have a certain smell (like a man’s semen has a certain taste), and a lady shouldn’t be encouraged to take something to alter this. v@ginal discharge and the scent associated to it is completely normal.

These sweets fuel the shame that so many ladies hold to their bodies already. they’re also likely to throw off the ph balance that the v@gina needs to function, which could wreck havoc and actually cause an odd smell due to infection.

‘A lot more stigma exists around women’s bodies than men’s,’ Catriona continued , which she believes explains why these product are targeted towards ladies as ‘companies like this are playing into that’.

The se-xologist continued: As customers, we are always encouraged to ‘do higher, look higher, smell better’ etc… and sadly this product targets an area of our body already shamed and stigmatised.

Emphasising that ladies ‘should never be shamed by somebody else’ who might be insisting they take these sweets, Catriona urged anyone considering taking the ‘problematic’ pills to reconsider.

If a qualified clinical se-xologist and psychotherapist isn’t enough to convince you these pills are bull-shit, how about the fact they’re not fda approved?

As per the company’s own website: ‘These statements haven’t been evaluated by the Food and Dru-g Administration. This product isn’t intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease’.

Despite this, they describe themselves as ‘an adult se-xual wellness and health entity’ and say their aim is to become recognised as ‘se-x educators’.

If they really want to educate ladies about our v@ginas though, surely the best place to begin would be to inform us that we don’t need to change the way we taste in any way – instead of peddling untested products to take advantage of our insecurities.

Kate Moyle, a psychose-xual and relationship therapist based in London, reiterates that these pills serve no other function than to reinforce unrealistic expectations for ladies.

The psychose-xual therapist told UNILAD: The problem with a product like this is that it gives the message that ladies and their bodies are not okay as they’re.

Bodies have a natural scent, temperature, texture, hair but we are constantly given messages about how we ‘should’ be and ‘should’ look when this is all based on unrealistic ideas.

It’s also focused on the partner’s experience of the female body (for example a male or female partner giving oral se-x), rather than being of any profit for the person using the sweets.

Kate stressed that the v@gina is ph balanced and naturally contains healthy bacteria as it is designed to keep itself clean.

As such: ‘any scented product can disrupt the body’s natural balance and could therefore potentially lead to potential infection and inflammation’.

The therapist continued: There are so many messages in the media targeted at particularly young ladies about how they should look and be, in a way that conforms to idealised and unrealistic standards.

We should be celebrating people as people and promoting acceptance and celebrating diversity, not trying to encourage everybody to be the same.

Targeting ladies in these kind of campaigns is nothing new, {we can see it across a whole range of media and advertising about pointing people towards changing the way that they naturally are rather than learning how to accept themselves and be confident in that.

Basically, these pills – which are not medically or scientifically approved – do nothing more than shame ladies into changing ourselves to fit somebody else’s unrealistic standards.

The last thing we need is another product geared towards ladies which stigmatises our bodies and se-xuality more than they already are.

It’s time to put an end to it once and for all.
