By now we all know that douching is a big no-no, right? I hope so, because the generations that came before us had no clue. Douching, a method of flushing the vagina with a cleansing fluid, was thought to be just another part of feminine hygiene and overall vaginal health. Back in the day there were literally ads selling Lysol as a douching liquid. Yes, Lysol, the stuff you clean the kitchen with. Blech! But now we know that those chemicals can disrupt the vagina’s PH balance, which can lead to yeast infections, irritation, and other not-so-pleasant vaginal phenomena.
And yet–and yet–there are still folks out there who are trying to clean their vaginas out and will go at great lengths to find the perfect thing to douche with. They’ll take to the internet and hit up sites like Yahoo Answers, seeking dubious guidance and rolling with it. It’s like watching a train wreck, and I’m going to bring the wreckage to you so you know what not to put up your vagina, ever. Check out these 12 ridiculous questions about douching that will straight up make you want to die…or just clutch your vag for dear life.
