I have been so concerned with this lately. I've had "scent issues" for awhile and it sucks. I've been to the gyno TWICE about it, and both times havent helped. Im a very clean person and i regrd that area with alot of respect. I have a boyfriend for the first time in two years, and this odor issue makes me tense and nervous everytime we go into :naughty territory" Im at a loss. My doc brushes it off as no big deal, but it is a big deal. I used to not have this problem, it just appeared one day, which is waht bohters me the most. This thread is really helpful

Honestly, it never crossed my mind to do anything special. I have dry skin issues, so I try to use sulfate-free soaps and body washes all over my body, and whatever I use on my body is what I use on my feminine area. Just like on my body, I don't rely on just soap to clean myself. I always use a wash cloth and when I'm finished scrubbing my body, I gently scrub my nether regions and then toss the wash cloth in the hamper. One thing I always make sure to do is never let any soap sit for too long, otherwise I'll get irritated. Not pleasant.

this thread is making me cry! man, people get so pissed off when you start talking about washing the puss. (i wonder if that will show up). hahahahha.

anyways, body wash is too slippery and is hard to rinse, so i use a bar of soap, whatever is on hand. i personally don't like how summer's eve feminine wash smells. i am very sensitive to smell, so if i feel yecky, i shower twice or three times in a day. i think i have a little bit of "body ocd." oh well.

I don't use anything, as I also know that you shouldn't be using soaps or anything in or around your lady bidness.
Me too.

Hooray for hoohah threads!

I don't use anything special to wash my special places. I hope we've moved past the days when women douched with Lysol.

OMG, that ad is too funny. This in particular:

Quote:
Wives often lose the precious air of romance, doctors say, for lack of the intimate daintiness dependent on effective douching.
intimate daintiness???? Oh come ON.

I think the "ad" is a joke (i.e., not real).

No, they are real ads from the 20's, 30's and 40's.

ETA - the advertisers used euphemisms to make women believe that douching with lysol could prevent pregnancy.

What makes you think so? Do you know in which publications they're said to have run? They don't seem authentic at all. (I'm almost tempted to check microfiche.)

PBS some info and here's another link. http://www.medicinenet.com/script/ma...ticlekey=51170

Most all history of birth control documents mention the lysol ads. I edited my response above at the same time you were posting, it seems.

I don't disagree with the claim that products like Lysol, etc. were advertised or promoted for these types of purposes at one time. But that particular ad above? It just looks too phoney baloney. I could be wrong. But it doesn't strike me as real. The language seems too tongue in cheek.

Not really. The copy is typical of women's advertising in those decades. We've come a long way, baby.

I love the Dane Cook comedy skit where he says he was with a girl who smelled bad - she smelled so bad it was like she washed her vagina with a dirtier vagina.

I wash the area with whatever soap I'm using, but certain soaps, like antibacterial ones, or as I've mentioned before, the dreaded Oil of Olay body wash, leaves me a little irritated. And I rinse very well, and I do have to say that I use my fingers and rinse the inside really well too. Especially after my period. I just wanna flush it out. I mean, I know it's self cleaning, but I don't wanna wait for it to drain on it's own. Then stuff'll sit up there for too long, and I'm not comfortable with that. I think it's my job as the owner of the body to help it along a little.

I have old issues of Life and Look. And spent a lot of time perusing old issue of Bazaar (for unrelated research). So I'm a little familiar with early 20th century copy writing. But the above just doesn't seem to be like it. That's why I'm wondering which publication it supposedly came from.
