How your Vagina is Supposed to Smell

Fish taco. Crotch mackerel. Cod canal. Tuna town. With these common snipes at the vagina, is it any wonder that women worry about how they smell! Not to mention that every single drugstore across the land houses shelves full of “feminine hygiene” products euphemistically pointing out that a woman’s natural state is being smelly.

Sadly, many women buy into the message that the vagina is dirty and smelly leading to shame and embarrassment. Not to mention the physical consequences of believing your vagina is a wreaking, foul-smelling hellhole. Turns out all those douches, vagina perfumes, deodorants, and wipes can actually cause a host of problems down there.

That’s why we’ve decided to dedicate this blog to some straight talk about vaginal odor. In it we’re going to explain what your vagina is supposed to smell like, including a look at when the smell actually could signify that there is a disturbance in the force. In addition, we’re going to talk douching. (Spoiler alert: it’s a terrible idea!)
