13 Things Your Vag Doesn't Need To Smell Like

It's a vagina, not a cocktail.

Posted on

One of the many reasons vaginas are wonderful is that they are pretty self-sufficient. You might think you need all sorts of products to keep yourself clean, healthy, and "fresh" but really — your vagina is built to maintain itself.

Since douches can actually throw off your natural balance of bacteria (potentially putting you at risk for infections and STIs), and scented washes or wipes can cause irritation, it's best to just ditch them — especially douches. Which means your vag will smell, well, like a vag.
