Do you want to bea tutorial about vaginasé When I tell people I don't wash my vagina they freak out. BUT HOW DO YOU KEEP IT CLEANé! Hey listen, vaginas clean themselves. They are a product of millions of years of evolution and all of that was before soap was invented.
There are actually lots and lots of little living things inside your vagina. Clone: AHHH! Don't freak out! There are tons of little living things all over and inside your body on the microbiological level and they're all working really hard to keep you healthy. So uh make their job a little easier and don't fuck it all up. Seriously if you're using soap or douchesyour vagina you are fucking up your natural cleaning process.

You use a feminine soap. Then the smell goes away for a day and you're like, quot;Oh my god I smell like roses and mangoes!quot; Then the next day you smell bad again so you have to buy more of their products.
