What inspired you to write your book?
Working at a sex shop is an adventure in to itself. You can have conversations that would otherwise be deemed inappropriate! I feel like people have a fear about all things sexual if they do not understand it. When you can openly and candidly talk about such a sensitive subject, it opens up a dialogue for people to be comfortable within themselves.
Here is a short sample from the book:
At least once a week, I am approached by a woman that is looking for something to flavor or scent her vagina. Yes, this is a thing. A thing I do not understand. Most times they will ask for something that has a flavor to make their vagina taste better. As far as I have been ever been told, men actually LIKE the taste of a vagina. Who wouldn’t? Every one tastes different. FOR a reason, it is your vagina so it should taste like you.
Let me clear something up real quick. Vaginas are SUPPOSED to smell like a vagina! They are not supposed to smell like candy canes or apples or cotton candy or cherries. I REPEAT, a vagina should smell like a vagina! Any man I have ever spoken to about this agrees. There is nothing better smelling to a man than a beautiful vagina. Part of that smell is your own personal perfume called pheromones. This is your own unique perfume made by your body. It also helps your partner sync up with you and get a little more randy… Why cover that up?
In all the times I have been asked this question, I have never gotten a real answer as to why they want to actually scent or flavor it. I can only assume these women think their natural scent or flavor is bad, or that they are not aware that it should have a slight scent and taste. Each week of the month it will smell and taste a little different, and unless it is highly offensive, you do not need to cover that up. Most women know what happens when you add un needed scents and flavors to the vagina… Infections.
In cases involving the vagina, it is best to let Mother Nature work her magic, save for fun intimate times where you are adding a flavored lube of some sort or a tingle or cooling gel, leave your vag alone! I liken it to when someone goes to the bathroom and leaves a horrendous odor. When you spray a scented spray in the room, what happens? The room smells like crap and flowers. Imagine what your vagina now smells like,
Ladies, if you think you smell bad in your lower labyrinth, then by all means, see a doctor. There could be an infection or something going on. BUT if your vag smells like a vag, LEAVE IT ALONE!! For the love of Pandora, just leave it be. It’s bad enough we shave it, groom it, color our landing strip (yes, really), there is no reason to flavor it as well.
Women have for centuries been shamed about their own body functions to the degree that some woman cannot orgasm because they are embarrassed. We are told that we can’t let anyone know we have our period, As if this is a bad thing. We are told that we are here to please men and never mind our own pleasure. This needs to stop.
A woman’s body is a beautiful place and Sorry to break it to you, but if you do not like the tastes and smells that come from it, then maybe you shouldn’t be playing with one.
So ladies. Yes, your vagina has an odor, and unless it is offensive as in ripe or foul, and comes with a sickly discharge, you are fine. Just remember, Men have scents too, Like fromunder cheese (aka ball cheese) , swamp ass and dick rot. Appetizing, isn’t it? See how silly it is? Everybody has different odors. Do not let anyone make you feel less beautiful or sexy just because your body has a natural smell.
And yes ladies… It is normal to smell your vag. The same women, whom are asking for scented vaginas, also ask me if it is normal to smell it. YES IT IS. There is nothing wrong with that. I can tell when my period will be early by the scent. I also do a little sniff before intimate times, just because. I am not entirely sure what I am sniffing for, I just want to know what is going on down there.
If you are that worried about your normal smelling vagina, a flavored lube is ok during foreplay and sex. Just don’t wear it every day like it’s a perfume. Always clean any area the lube has been very well after sex so you do not end up with an infection. There are great toy/body cleaners on the market now that make clean up a breeze!
