Dying Your Labia

It seems to be  “ things you can do to your vulva week”,  on my blog, so why not keep with the theme and tell you about something else I found you can do to your vulva? Labia dye! This lovely product comes in the form of a product called “ my new pink button”. Research for this article consisted of a peak of my own labia to try and work out what colour I would call it. I would call it flesh and if the pink dye is like anything on the logo of the product, I’m not sure I would want my genitals looking like cotton candy.   This product is a temporary dye to restore the youthful pink colour back to your labia. I know the vulva changes with age, but I’m trying to think if it ever was exactly pink!   So this one of a…

The Vagina Spa

  A beauty day with the girls just got a whole lot more interesting. Where we once booked in for facials, manis, pedis and body scrubs, we can now extend the list of beauty treatments available. Welcome to the vagina spa! ( There are words I never thought I would write).   A few weeks ago in New York, the first Medi Spa in Manhattan opened, wholly dedicated to strengthening and grooming a woman’s genital area. We spend so much money and time on everything else, why not our vaginas too? Let’s not neglect the most important part of our body!   The spa is essentially a fancy examination room down the hall from Dr Romanzi’s, a gynaecologist’s medical practice. Instead of botox or laser, their signature treatment is a $150 gynaecological exam, which involves a client contracting her pelvis muscle around Dr Romanzi’s fingers to determine by feel whether…

Things You Never Knew About Sex

Have you ever heard that saying, the more I learn the less I know?  Well that was once true and maybe partly still is, but what is also true is the more I read the more I know. So maybe it’s about time I shared with you some interesting and new facts you just might not know about sex.   Did you know that things such as caffeine, tobacco, sugar, too much soy, omega 6oils and trans fat are classified as orgasm killers that can hamper the body’s optimal sexual and orgasmic functioning? Marrena Lindberg suggests to watch your intake of these substances and pay attention to how they are affecting your sexuality. What a great reason to give up smoking?     Fem Fresh might not be so fresh after all!  Using feminine deodorant sprays are unnecessary and perhaps even harmful. The vagina cleans itself and does not need…

No Teen Sex Abroad!

Sometimes being a sexologist is difficult, especially when you have different opinions to those close to you. Even more so when these opinions are about young adults and sex. We live in a society where we try and prolong the age at which teens first have sex and want our sons and daughters to wait till they are “ready” (and past the age of 16). We see young adults engaging in sexual practices sometimes as a bad thing and this is where we do so much damage to their thoughts about sex. This is when we attach the shame and guilt. When will people learn – sex is not such a bad thing!   It is a bad thing however, when teens are sexually involved for the wrong reasons, and also without the right knowledge of how to protect themselves both physically and emotionally. This is something I will always…
