Why are women putting ground up wasp nests in their vaginas?

Ladies, please. Under no circumstances should you put wasp nests in your vagina!

Yes, this seems like something we shouldn’t have to tell anyone. Ever. And yet, the latest craze to hit sanity-reduced women is putting ground up wasp nests inside their vaginas.

For those of you with some remaining common sense, this is actually a thing some women are doing. Which women, we don’t know. But if you’re thinking, “Women are putting the dried-up homes of stinging wasps inside their hoo-ha’s? What does it do and should I try this?”

The answer is no. You definitely should not. Just to clarify, it isn’t the nest itself but a thing called “oak galls.” According to gynecologist Dr. Jen Gunter, these galls are “balls of bark and wasp excreta that once nurtured a wasp larva.”

Confused yet? Let’s keep going. Dr. Gunter says that the oak galls are formed when a “gall wasp punctures an oak tree and deposits larva.”

Does this really sound like something you want anywhere near your lady parts?

Secondly, think of the vagina as a self-cleaning oven. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with a damp vagina, because the discharge your vag secretes keeps it clean.

All that may very well be true, but as Dr. Gunter explains, drying and/or tightening your hoo-ha isn’t a good thing, sexually or medically. Why, you ask? First of all, a dry vagina is more susceptible to damage during sex, which isn’t fun for anyone, and kills the protective mucous layer.

“A healthy vagina will also secrete small amounts of discharge to keep itself clean, much as saliva is produced to help cleanse your mouth. Any interference with these normal conditions, and you may face vaginal irritation or infection,” an EverydayHealth post explains.

“Here’s a pro-tip,” Dr. Gunter writers. “If something burns when you apply it to the vagina it is generally bad for the vagina.”

If you still need a reason not to dry out your lady parts, besides making sex painful and having a potentially dirty cooter, scientific studies also show that a dry and unprotected vagina is at higher risk of HIV transmission.

Just so we’re all clear on this one, a dry vagina is bad, ‘kay?

“Here’s a pro-tip,” Dr. Gunter writers. “If something burns when you apply it to the vagina it is generally bad for the vagina.”

Words you should live by, ladies. You’re welcome.
