Feminine Hygiene products. Grrr.

Why? Why do we need "Special Soap" for our vagina's? WTF is the purpose? I hate those effing commercials that advertise them. The latest one I saw was of this man sitting in front of the T.V. watching the game and his girlfriend or wife walks in and says, "Don't you want to freshen up, honey?" so the guys stands up turns his shirt inside out and sits back down. The the voice over comes in and says, "Guys have their way of freshening up, and we have ours." Then goes on to sell their line of feminine hygiene products. Um, if your man thinks that "freshening up" is turning his t-shirt inside out, then he probably doesn't care what your pussy smells like. Geez.

When I was a teenager, I was told that I needed those soaps or no boys would want to go down there. (From other girls in my circle of friends, Don't know where they heard that from.) So I used them like crazy because I didn't want to smell like low tide. When I got older, I realized that my poonda was supposed to smell like that and that most guys LOVED the smell and taste. What worries me is those girls that never realized that. I want to shout from the rooftops, "Ladies, all of our vagina's are SUPPOSED to smell like that!!! Just use the same soap you use for the rest of your bodies and you will be fine. Do men use "Special Soap" for their dicks!?!? Hell no! So stop using these godawful products!!!"

Have you seen the Vagina Monologues? One of the monologues deals with this issue. It goes something like "It's not supposed to smell like roses, it's supposed to smell like PUSSY!"

it's a really amazing show and has raised millions of dollars worldwide, and all the money goes to local programs whereever the show is put on. I've seen it on stage twice and seen the HBO progam a couple times. you can rent or order (netflix) the docfilm, if you don't have it coming to any nearby venues.

I have to find this great quote from the book Cunt about the lack of "male hygienge" products. Something about "I have never seen scented ball wipes, hershey stain protector pads special penis soap but I have heard tell of a need for such products"

too true. as if our fabulous muffs smell any worse than some nasty balls.
