How to correctly clean your vagina.

Updated on November 9, 2011

Cleansing the vagina

How to cleanse the vagina may seem to be quite self- evident. In fact, I bet most of you have been cleansing your own vaginas' for quite some time now. Cleansing of the vagina enables you to stay fresh, and sense a clean feeling. However, many women have no idea that they are completing the daily task incorrectly, and YES indeed, there is a correct and incorrect way to cleanse the vagina!

The Basics of Cleansing Your Vagina

Just as the penis and testicles are sensitive organs for men, so is the vaginal organ for women as well. These organs must be treated with proper care and sensitivity when being cleansed.

  • Washing with strong, perfumed soaps is NOT in the vaginas' best interest. These soaps contain too many chemicals that are unhealthy for the vagina. Using scented soaps "down there" can result in infections, such as, Bacterial Vaginosis (BV). Mild, sensitive soaps with no scent or additives will surely leave you feeling fresh, and are safe for your vagina.
  • Soaps such as :Summers Eve, and Dove Unscented are highly recommended, and affordable.These soaps can generally be found at your local grocery store. It may also be helpful to ask your doctor what soap brand he/she suggests.
  • DO NOT clean the inside of the vagina, also known as "douching". The vagina is a self- cleansing organ, that cleans itself naturally, and does not need help from you! Cleansing the inside of the vagina can result in infection , and may lead to other vaginal issues.
  • Focus on cleansing the outer layers of the vagina, like the labia, which will dismiss any left over residue from urinating, and other odor. Also, be sure to wash from front to back. Any washcloth or old rag will do, even washing with your hands is okay. Be sure to rinse well.
  • This is primarily enough cleansing as far as the vagina is concerned. Sit back , and let the vagina do the rest of the cleansing, for that is what it's equipped for , to self- clean!

Don't forget that it is okay to use scented soaps for other parts of the body, just be sure to have the mild and unscented soaps on hand!

      dylan is correct, if your an ass you get treated in kind, its the bassways to illiminate asses, although this would be an extreme case if a female thinks they havea right to decimate a mans balls for no reason than turn in kind. (and females wonder why there vagina looks like a mashed potato after ten thousand years of abusing males)

      sexual violence happens to both genders. this is overlooked, and i am trying to bring it into the limelight with the following petition. please forward this to anyone who cares about stopping sexual violence.

      END SEXUAL VIOLENCE AGAINST MEN (with an eye for an eye)

      THESIS: if a member of the little, lesser gender commits sexual violence against men by kicking any man in the balls, thereby damaging his "man parts," the man has a right to viciously rape his attacker's "lady parts" in an "an eye for an eye" method of self-defense.

      i am not a man built like the football greats who are matt muchnok, tim tebow, josh lane or jeb blazavich - i am not built like ANY football hero, and it's because i am so small and slight that i live in fear of members of the lesser gender. now, from the mere mention of a class teaching "100 ways to rip a guy's nuts off" on an episode of "the big bang theory," right down to images of "rosie the riveter" flexing her (quite unseen) bicep, i have good reason to live in fear of the warped sense of reality that the little females have adopted nowadays. sexual violence is sexual violence, and i believe that any man should be able to rape his attacker if he is kicked in the nuts by a little vagina who thinks she has some kind of superiority over men.

      i will bring up the television show called "mister rogers" because i believe that vaginas nowadays are living in "the land of make-believe" where they are as strong and as physically-capable as men are. "the land of make-believe," kiddie-wonderland, "sesame street," these places are the only places where there is no superior gender and therefore no shorter gender and no smaller gender and no weaker gender. no hungrier gender and no hornier gender. the fact is that gender-equality is propaganda that is not real and that exists only in lip-service after mention of it has become tolerable by a lot of repetition (how many times today have you heard or read the words "strong woman" or "a woman can do anything a man can do," for crying out loud). maybe "abby cadabby," the magical homosexual who lives on sesame street, may be able to undo biology and make gender-equality a reality...but save magical fairies and gender-equality for the childrens' show - gender-equality is not real and it's not going to become real with the works of a either a troop of fairies or just the one fairy trooper named abby

      blazavich, for instance, probably never was raped and yet is probably against rape. can one be opposed to rape if one has never been raped? "how do you know you don't like it if you've never tried it," isn't that what gay-activists say? personally, i would love to be raped by the football-stud named blazavich...still, though, jeb blazavich is someone i wouldn't respect if i realized (while sucking his big, fat blazavich) that he buys into the whole "a woman can do anything a man can do" facade. i don't even respect some people who are not blind and who see through the facade of female police-officers - i don't respect them if they still give lip-service to gender-equality. now, i realize that blazavich would not necessarily rape any member of the lesser gender if a vagina went and kicked him in the nuts, but i believe that this option should be open for men who are in-touch with reality enough to want to put women in their place (the word "woman," after all, is a spin-off of "man" and a derivative of the words "womb" and "man". the reason there is no "b" is because the lesser gender lacks "Balls" (or testosterone).

      you cannot be a real woman unless you are wholeheartedly an egg-bleeder and a milk-leaker - women are merely tools to be used by men's penises and by babies' need for nourishment. milk and eggs, it's as simple as dairy. you can't be a real woman unless you are not ashamed that your body-parts scream "USE US" like they're straight out of an x-rated version of "alice in wonderland". real women are not ashamed of their milk-jugs and their egg-laying vaginas, they are not ashamed of their lack of testosterone. furthermore, they are not ashamed that a woman simply cannot do anything a man can do.


      when one considers the amount of the media's propaganda and even scholastic propaganda that is designed to placate the lesser gender with the gender-identity issue of "a woman can do anything a man can do," it should come as no surprise that coney island went and added a "ladies' division" to their hot dog eating competition in an effort for the lesser appetites to triumph. "triumph," as in alongside of men and never over men. it should come as no surprise that the little ones wear high-heeled shoes and shoulderpads to placate their egos on the job, as if to pledge allegiance to pat benatar with the words "we belong" when they obviously DON'T belong.

      furthermore, employers should require perspective female employees to pass an "anything a man can to" type of ability-test if females want to be employed. i know that this would be regarded by every lackluster member of the insufficient gender as sexism, but the reason that this is not done is because nobody has any faith in the physical capabilities of members of the shorter/smaller/weaker gender who rely on gender-based requirements to get a place as a soldier in the military or as a state trooper in a state police force located in indiana, pennsylvania, texas or any other state. unreliable is anyone who benefits from special compensations made to offset the inadequacies of femininity.

      when one considers the amount of the media's propaganda and even scholastic propaganda that is designed to placate the lesser gender with the gender-identity issue of "a woman can do anything a man can do," it should come as no surprise that females are never required to be able to do anything a man can do. it should come as no surprise that tactics of overcompensation like the aforementioned "ladies' division" are used everywhere so that there is equal representation of both genders everywhere and even where the lesser gender doesn't belong. speaking of the police force and the military, let me rephrase that statement by stating that if a man is only as strong as a woman then he's just not going to be accepted into the military. the lesser gender has less required of them - this is because they are lesser people...and lesser people just can't accomplish as much.

      if a man is only as strong as a woman, he's not going to be accepted onto the police farce. "police farce," let me quote pee-wee herman and say "i meant to do that". it is a "farce" more than it is a "force to be reckoned with" if little vaginas become police officers largely because less physical aptitude is expected of them. the act of placating females is compromising the military's identity and integrity as much as an act of homosexuality is compromising a man's masculine identity and integrity. "a woman can do anything a man can do" is so obviously a cry for unrealized masculine identity, and a man stripping and inspecting another man's body is (to quote kelly clarkson) "the same damned thing".

      when one considers the media's propaganda and even scholastic propaganda that is designed to placate the lesser gender with the gender-identity issue of "a woman can do anything a man can do," it should come as no surprise that females are a bunch of masculine wannabees who think they have a right to use phrases like "yeah, man," as if seeing eye-to-eye with men is only a matter of wearing a pair of overcompensating high-heeled shoes or shoulderpads. women are not men - women should not be allowed to compromise the police force with all of their physical inferiorities, and they should not be allowed to compromise the military. the word "woman" may be derivative of "womb" and "man," but there are no balls without the letter b. testosterone makes men superior to women, it's as simple as that. superior height, superior width, superior strength, superior appetites for both sex and food.

      if it is customary to get vaginas buying into the lie of "gender equality," if a woman can do anything a man can do only if the bar is lowered, i think that a man should b

      Wow. This should really help, thank you. I have been advised to always focus on how i wash my vagina due to having a prominent labia. Girls who do have labias outside their lips should always take good care to wash and rinse thoroughly as being outside it can pick up more bacteria, giving you a higher risk of infections.
