Doctors Warn Vagina 'Glitter Bomb' Trend Is Dangerous

Just don't

MOST POPULAR

The day has come, we are saying no to something glittery.

Over the past few months/days/years we have all got on board with glitter roots, tears, lips, bums, hell, even glitter tits.

However, this new 'glitter bomb' trend is where we have to draw the line. As the latest shimmery upgrade is not about making us sparkle on the outside, but the inside - through our vagina.

People are putting glitter, in the form of 'Passion Dust' capsules, up their private parts in order to attain 'a sparkly, flavoured orgasm'.

If that wasn't bad enough, the site selling the creation, Pretty Woman Inc, have also said that the pill will, '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!'

Now, that's just wrong on so many levels. Plus, last time we checked a woman's vagina had a lot more important features than whether or not it's sparkly.

To add to the worrying trend, not only is it unnecessary, it's also unsafe. Multiple gynaecologists are speaking out about the health warnings of putting the unicorn explosion 'up there'.

Dr Vanessa Mackay told The Independent, 'The vagina contains a delicate balance of good bacteria, which are there to protect it. If women place foreign objects inside their vagina, they risk disturbing this balance which may lead to infection, such as bacterial vaginosis or thrush, and inflammation.'

Meanwhile, another expert Dr Jen Gunter has described that side effects could be like, 'vaginal sunburn'.

So, please ladies, don't put glitter up your private parts. If anything it will just make a bit of a mess, and possibly give you a yeast infection. If you do want to glitz up your vajayjay for your own entertainment, stick to a Vajazzle.
