Many people supplement their diets with probiotics, but you can also find this type of ‘good bacteria’ in the human body — specifically in a woman’s vagina. Instead of shilling out for bougie probiotic yogurts or drinks, why not take a trip south of the border?

What’s up with that vaginal bacteria?
The vaginal ecosystem contains lactobacillus, a bacteria that grows to regulate vaginal pH, according to the Pharmabiotic Research Institute.
Lactobacilli produce lactic acid, keeping the pH in vaginal fluid at a healthy 4.5. Vaginal secretions typically contain Lactobacillus crispatus, Lactobacillus jensenii, Lactobacilus iners, Lactobacillus gasseri and can also contain Lactobacillus reuteri.
Recently, the company Order of Yoni brewed a beer that contained vaginal bacteria.
One woman even used her vaginal secretions to make yogurt, and described her culinary endeavor in a 2015 post on Motherboard.
Listen up, dudes (and ladies). These are the health benefits of eating pussy.
Lactobacillus is also present in your gut, where it is usually termed ‘probiotics,’ Broadly pointed out. Probiotics aid digestion, allowing good microorganisms to balance out your gastrointestinal system, according to Medical Daily.
Eating probiotics can prevent illness, the Cleveland Clinic reported. They can also boost your mood and help alleviate depression, according to Medical Daily. Sounds good, right?
Broadly asked the Mayo Clinic’s Dr. Helena Mendes-Soares if it was possible to gain these benefits from giving a woman oral sex.
“I think it would be possible, but probably unlikely,” she said. “I don’t know of any study that addressed it.”
Some people even believe that probiotics you can buy over the counter aren’t particularly beneficial because they aren’t the same species as natural bacteria present in the body. “Compared to the complexity of the GI microenvironment, probiotics contain just a few bacteria, and not even the most common bowel organisms. It is safe to say that the “good” bacteria so highly touted in probiotics are but a minor constituent of a complex flora,” Mark Crislip, an infectious disease doctor and probiotic critic, wrote.
Why not go the natural route?
Dr. Mendes-Soares explained that a gram of vaginal fluid contains 100,000 to 100 million Lactobacillus cells, depending on the woman. In order to reap the health benefits of probiotics, one would have to swallow between “ten and 10,000 grams (10 kg) of vaginal fluid,” Broadly reported. Hey, it’s worth a shot.
It’s worth noting that a serving of lady juice doesn’t just contain helpful nutrients, but can also transmit harmful bacteria and STIs, so it never hurts for both partners to get tested before going down.
Receiving oral sex also has health perks.
As ATTN: has previously reported, the female orgasm also benefits your mental and physical health. An orgasm releases oxytocin, dopamine, and endorphins, which elevate your mood and can even alleviate pain — if you’re feeling period cramps, take note.

Do you consider yourself educated on the health effects of sex?
No 32%Yes 68%
Does vaginal fluid have any medical benefit for males?
Yes. Sexual fluids carry multiple bio-regulating chemical structures that can increase both physical and psychological wellbeing.
Ingestion is the most common way to receive benefit, but even contact with mucuous membranes can prompt positive reactions.
And, on the other hand, bodily fluids and intimate contact can spread disease and cause other problems, so it is a mixed bag and caution is in order.
Ear wax, semen, male and female sexual lubrication, snot, and many other human excretions can have selective health benefits in the right circumstances, especially with relation to things like immune regulation, digestion, and mood. This is because humans are living systems with balances of internal organisms and regenerative processes.
Practically speaking, ingestion of vaginal lubrication would probably only approach sustained and meaningful benefit if regularly consumed at least 3-5 days a week (even if just in very small amounts) and only consumed from one female for the duration. Modifying your physiology using the feedback system created between multiple individuals in proximity or shared bio-environments often entails restricting your interactions with other external factors or individuals that might conflict with the potential direction being taken with your initial pairing (or whatever the arrangement may be).
Sharing between multiple persons on a regular basis could still potentially have benefit, but the balance would be more dynamic and less scrutable. The resulting system would be a bit less interdependent due to the complexity, especially given how each individual partner will have differing homeostatic values and varying content of secretions across days and weeks.
The benefits, or methods of obtaining ideal benefit, might be different for each gender (due to our repective natural hormonal states and processing preferences regarding introduced biomaterials), and genes also play a role in what can benefit who ideally. Other factors exist, but I don’t know if you were going for an exhaustive explanation (and this is not something exhaustively researched anyhow).
Even being in a relationship at all changes your biological functioning on the hormonal level (whether it is sexually expressive or not, and even in long distance romance), so a lot of benefit stems from how you contextualize your interactions mentally.
I am not a doctor, but I have studied psychosexual therapy and the science behind sexual interactions on a layman’s basis.
You are what you eat, and apparently so is your vagina. Your diet affects pretty much everything from your menstrual cycle to your mood, so eating the best foods for vaginal health can help keep things running smoothly down there.
For the ultimate vaginal-health-boosting diet, we asked the experts for their favorite foods.
1. Eat plenty of prebiotics and probiotics.
Your vagina, like your gut, requires healthy bacteria to fight infections and maintain a normal pH. Luckily, any foods that help promote gut health can also help promote a healthy balance of vaginal bacteria, says Jennie Ann Freiman, M.D. Consuming probiotics has actually been shown to help women with vaginitis, chronic vaginal discomfort that can lead to pain during sex, says Brian A. Levine, M.D. To improve both your gut and vaginal health, she advises eating a combo of prebiotic foods like garlic, onions, and raw leeks along with probiotic foods like yogurt, kimchi, pickles, sauerkraut, tempeh, and kombucha. (One thing to note: Prebiotic and probiotic supplements aren’t as good as actual prebiotic and probiotic foods, says Dr. Freiman. “Lab formulations don’t beat Mother Nature.”)
2. Enjoy nuts and other healthy fats.
Healthy fats like those found in nuts, olive oil, and avocados are often touted as superfoods for their role in helping to regulate your cholesterol. But that in turn also helps keep your estrogen levels in balance, creating a healthy mucosal lining that can help ward off infections. Almonds and other types of nuts are especially good, says Dr. Levine, because they contain B vitamins and calcium that prevent vaginitis.
3. Avoid processed foods.
While prebiotic and probiotic foods add helpful bacteria to the gut and vagina, Dr. Freiman says processed foods depress your immune system, which can allow harmful bacteria to take over. This can lead to all sorts of problems down there, including bacterial vaginosis, yeast infections, dryness, pain during sex, and urinary tract infections.
4. Go easy on the sugar.
Too much sugar isn’t good for your vagina either. Specifically, it can damage or kill the important vaginal bacteria (dubbed Lactobacilli), says Burt Webb, M.D. Basically, sugar is the opposite of a probiotic. The bacterial imbalance can lead to yeast infections, soreness, and irritation—three things you really don’t want to deal with.
5. Avoid meat and dairy containing artificial hormones.
Certain meats and dairy products contain xenoestrogens—artificial hormones that imitate estrogen. According to Dr. Webb, these can block estrogen from the vagina, preventing the mucosal lining from forming, which, again, can leave you open to infection.
6. Stay hydrated.
“The vagina is just like the inside of the mouth,” says Dr. Levine. “When a woman is thirsty and parched, her vagina probably is too.” Hydration can also help prevent any unusual odors from surfacing down there, says Octavia Cannon, D.O.—just one more reason to gulp down those eight glasses a day.
The stuff that women’s sexual secretions are made of
Dear The Inquisitives,
Now, that’s interesting coffee talk! While this may seem like a simple question, the general components of a woman’s sexual secretions are all that is known at this time.
Throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle, vaginal mucus changes in response to the body’s hormone production. During sexual arousal, blood flow to the vagina, vulva, and clitoris increases, causing swelling known as vasocongestion. At this time, a “sweating reaction” occurs that lubricates the vaginal walls. The combination of vaginal mucus and lubrication makes up women’s sexual secretions, which can contain carbohydrates, amino acids, proteins, and other acids produced by the normal lactobacillus bacteria.
In addition to these sexual secretions, some women have the ability to “ejaculate.” It is believed that the Skene’s glands, located in a woman’s urethra, produce a liquid that is believed to contain high levels of prostatic acid phosphatase (a chemical secreted by the prostate gland and found in semen), glucose, and fructose. This fluid differs from a woman’s secretions during arousal. You can read more about this phenomenon in Female ejaculate — Where does it come from?
So, there you have it! Best of luck in future conversations about sexual secretions, but remember, the topic can be a slippery slope!
Most women that are sexually active and engage in oral sex experience that niggling anxiety about their smell and taste at some point. Let’s face it, ladies, it’s true. When I first wrote this article, I got feedback from several male patients and friends that this is often true for men too.
I frequently get asked: “Are foods or products that could take away this sexual anxiety?” The answer is yes. But let’s start with a little biology lesson first.
Your vagina is a self-cleaning oven. It does not need any products to make it smell better or to be cleaner. You have a natural balance of flora (helpful microscopic bugs) that help keep your nether regions clean and healthy. If you disrupt that balance of bugs, you can wind up with funky smells.
The biggest disruptor of a healthy microbial world in the gut and vagina is antibiotic use. Antibiotics wipe out the good bugs with the bad bugs. Other culprits are steroids, sweets, alcohol, caffeine, and stress.
The top 3 issues women face when their vaginal flora is not balanced, and their vaginal pH is acidic are:
- Yeast infections
- Bacterial vaginosis
- Urinary tract infections
If you have any of these issues, you will not smell very good. The solution is not to cover the smell with perfumed chemical products. These slickly marketed so-called “vaginal health” products are very damaging. The real solution is to find the “root-cause” and to fix it. Below are some foods that can help.
Foods that help to prevent yeast infections:
- Leafy greens: Eating a lot of leafy greens every single day helps alter your body’s pH. Yeast and harmful bacteria cannot survive outside of an acidic environment.
- Warm Lemon Water: Start your day with a cup of warm or room temperature water with ½ lemon squeezed into it. Again, this helps to wake up your digestion and to create a healthy pH. Raw apple cider vinegar will act similarly. You only need one tsp in your water.
- Unpasteurized fermented foods: Coconut water kefir, coconut milk yogurt (without sugar), kimchi, sauerkraut and other fermented vegetables are all great food choices for keeping your vaginal microbiota healthy and happy.
- The best way to prevent yeast overgrowth in your vagina is to avoid antibiotics, alcohol, sugar and other carbohydrate-rich foods, and caffeine. Instead use stevia, xylitol, monk fruit, or Luo Han Guo as sweetener options.
Foods that can beat the “fishy bacterial vaginosis” smell:
- Fenugreek seeds: Soak two tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in a glass of water overnight. In the morning, drink this water on an empty stomach. Do this daily for at least a month until you are back to normal.
- Raw Apple Cider Vinegar: Add two cups of raw, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar to your bath water. Sit in the bath water for about 20 minutes. Rinse with clean water and gently pat dry. Repeat this daily until you are doing better.
Foods to prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs):
- If you are sensitive, intolerant, or allergic to certain foods, you will become inflamed. Urinary tract infections are inflammation of the genitourinary tract. The best way to prevent inflammation is to avoid sugar, alcohol and caffeine and any foods you are intolerant to. Want to know what foods are causing inflammation for you? You can order the food sensitivity test here and then book a 20-minute consultation with Dr. Keesha or her team to go through a personalized medical plan for you: https://www.drkeesha.com/product-category/consults-lab-tests/
- Cranberry Juice: No sugar added, not from concentrate cranberry juice added to water each day can help women who are susceptible to UTIs. I recommend just a splash of cranberry juice added to 8 oz of water each day.
- A diet rich in anti-oxidant laden foods: Eating a rainbow of colored vegetables each day is the best way to prevent any infection. I recommend getting 9-12 cups of a variety of vegetables each day. Sometimes it is difficult to eat that much food every day. The easiest way to make sure you get 12 cups of vegetables? Juice ½ of them each morning. I like to take my low glycemic index veggies and juice them first thing in the morning and drink them for breakfast. I can easily eat 6 cups of veggies if they have been-juiced. My favorite juicing vegetables are kale, collard greens, cabbage, cilantro, cucumbers, celery, zucchini, yellow squash, limes, ginger, and a green apple. YUM!
Foods that can make you smell and taste bad:
Body odor can be a result of your body’s detoxification system having a difficult time getting rid of your internal garbage. Your liver, kidneys, lymph system, intestinal tract, skin, and lungs all contribute to the detox functions that are so necessary for you to stay healthy. If you have stinky armpits, it is more likely you will have a stinky vagina.
Some foods that can make everything a little bit worse. Anything strong smelling like asparagus, curry or garlic can alter your smell and taste…everywhere on your body. Red meat can also change your vaginal sensory experience, which is why vegetarians and people who eat a lot of pineapples are thought to have lighter smelling genitalia.
Does this mean you should be a vegetarian to smell and taste good? No. A vegetarian diet is only good for about 10% of the population (based the APOe gene in your DNA). So what can the meat eaters do? Anyone who is not an APOe 4 gene carrier can eat a primarily paleo style diet and follow the advice of the ancient health system of Ayurveda; detox each time the season changes. If you are changing your wardrobe, it’s time to do a detox (medically supervised and individualized) and to change your menu options.
Want to know your gene type so you can know your perfect diet? You can order gene testing kit here and then book time with Dr. Keesha for a one-hour genetic consultation: https://www.drkeesha.com/product-category/consults-lab-tests/ Then you can be sure to always “taste and smell” your best because your diet will match the needs of your unique digestive system.

Why Consuming Vaginal Fluids Is Good For You
Spread the love
By now you should know that the vagina is home to billions of bacteria. The official term for this genital ecosystem is the vaginal microbiome.
Health Benefits Of Consuming Vaginal Fluids
In recent days we have known the results of research conducted by scientists at the university St. Austin, which points out the benefits that the body gets to consume vaginal fluids
in the results it is indicated that this liquid that leaves the female intimate zone has high protein levels that are conserved up to ten minutes after the flow is out of the vagina.
specifically, it was pointed out that the vaginal fluid is rich in vitamins C1, C2, C4,VC, among others, as well as it contains sodium and a large amount of proteins. so , it has been said that the benefits of using vaginal fluids are the following:
Prevention Of Heart Disease And Cancer
State University of New York students came up with the conclusion that eating vaginal fluid keeps you safe from heart diseases and some forms of cancer. This conclusion came as a result of their finding during a research. According to them, hormones such as DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) and Oxytocin are usually released by women during intercourse and these hormones play a huge role in preventing heart diseases and cancer. This means that by eating the vaginal fluid, you will be acquiring the hormones thereby keeping you safe from these diseases.
Vaginal discharge contains probiotics in large numbers and they are very effective when it comes to aiding in digestion. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially your digestive system. Therefore, by eating them you will be helping your digestive system function well. Scientists said that the probiotics serve to balance the microorganisms in your gastrointestinal tract (GIT).
According to another research, the probiotics contained in vaginal fluid also helps to elevate one’s mood. These substances are known to alleviate a person’s moods. This means that apart from enjoying yourself during intercourse, you are actually freeing yourself from depression. In addition, Medical Daily has also joined the bandwagon in supporting eating of vaginal discharge and they are greatly seconding the idea. So, anytime you are feeling low, eating vaginal discharge can help boost your mood.
Mental And Physical Health Improvement
Up until recently, I never thought that eating vaginal discharge has more benefits other than entertainment and pleasure. What came as a shock to me is that the vaginal fluid has the ability to improve a person’s mental state and his physical health. According to studies, when a woman orgasms, she releases oxytocin, endorphins and dopamine all of which can be beneficial in reducing body pains. Now you know that eating vaginal fluid is better than having a massage.
Caution: Vaginal discharge is most often a normal and regular occurrence. However, there are certain types of discharge that can indicate an infection. This abnormal discharge may be yellow or green, chunky in consistency, or foul smelling. Yeast or a bacterial infection usually causes abnormal discharge.
abnormal vaginal discharge
Whenever you notice any of these signs, do not eat the discharge until the infection has been completely treated.
Many people think that oral sex is just for entertainment and pleasure. However, there is more to it than that. Scientists say that vaginal discharge possess several benefits including preventing heart diseases, promoting mental and physical health, curing depression and improving the digestive system of a person and so on. So, it is beneficial for you to start eating vaginal discharge of your trusted sex partner.

The action of the probiotics is complemented by my naturally antimicrobial Garlic tablets which fight the pathogenic yeasts which cause thrush. In addition, studies show that garlic fights infection and strengthens the immune system against further infection.
Getting plenty of Vitamin C is also important to support the immune system, and so my For Women probiotics also contain Vitamin C.
I’ve combined For Women probiotics and Garlic tablets in my Women’s Health Duo to provide a 30 day plan against BV or thrush.
Lifestyle tips to fight BV and thrush
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Drinking water is the single most important thing you can do to keep the vaginal area healthy.
- If your doctor prescribes antibiotics for BV, make sure you are taking my For Women probiotics three times a day to recolonise your gut with “friendly” bacteria in order to avoid additional problems following the course of treatment.
- Try to avoid repeated courses of antibiotics and only take them when absolutely necessary. Antibiotics profoundly affect the natural balance of bacteria in the digestive system and vaginal tract, leading to the bad bacteria and yeasts getting a foothold.
- Avoid tight jeans, wear cotton underwear, wipe yourself from front to back after going to the loo, and choose only fragrance-free personal hygiene products, soaps and shower gels. All of these actions will help prevent the vaginal irritation that can precipitate BV or thrush.
- If you have diabetes, make sure your blood sugar is kept under control.
Looking for home remedies and cures for Bacterial Vaginosis? In this blog post you will learn about the causes of BV and learn you how to heal your BV naturally. Also included: Tips on how to prevent future BV with diet and supplements.
Today I’m going to talk openly about my vagina. It’s a normal part of the human anatomy, like the hand or an ear.
I’m not sure why people are so afraid of it. Some people won’t even say the word vagina. The last article I read on the topic referred to as “my you know what.”
Seriously? Why are people so afraid of vaginas? Why are people so uncomfortable that they can’t even say the word? Well, I’m not.
And I’m going to tell you all about how to make your vagina healthy and bring the flora back into balance!
What is bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis, or BV, is the most common infection among women of childbearing age. While not as well known, it’s even more common than a yeast infection. To borrow lingo from Derek Zoolander, it’s really, really ridiculously common.
Studies have shown that approximately 29% of women in the U.S. are affected. Bacterial vaginosis is found in about 25% of pregnant women in the U.S. and approximately 60% of women who have a sexually-transmitted disease (STD). (source)
Considering that 29% of women suffer from it, it’s a shame that people don’t discuss natural remedies for bacterial vaginosis more often.
BV occurs when the vaginal flora is out of balance and there are more “bad” bacteria than “good” bacteria. The good bacteria keep the bad bacteria in check, but when this delicate balance is thrown out of balance- that’s BV. Symptoms include a smelly discharge, itching, burning and sometimes there are no symptoms at all.
What causes BV?
Well, no one’s really sure. What causes BV in one woman may not cause BV in another.
Here are some common triggers:
- high sugar diet
- eating junk food/overall unhealthy diet
- poor hygiene
- using soap down there
- multiple sexual partners
You might be surprised that a poor diet can be a cause for BV. But trust me, maintaining an overall healthy diet and lifestyle is your best bet against BV AND so many other deseases.
Most women will develop it at some point or another. After my last pap (which was normal after being diagnosed with cervical dysplasia!) the doctor called to tell me I had a mild case of BV.
I wasn’t surprised as I’m prone to it after using tampons.
Home Remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis – How to Heal BV Naturally
What to avoid:
The first step in healing BV is to not do things that aggravate it.
- No smoking,
- crappy foods,
- and please don’t use soap on or in your vagina. It upsets the flora and pH. Semen can upset the balance as well, so it can be best to refrain from sex while healing.
Prevent BV with a diet high in:
- pastured meats and eggs
- fermented foods
- bone broth
- raw dairy (if you tolerate dairy well)
- healthy fats like grass-fed butter, olive oil, and coconut oil
Avoid eating following foods:
- refined foods
- rancid vegetable oils (soy, corn, cotton, canola)
When my doctor told me I had BV, she wrote me a prescription for an antibiotic (no, I didn’t take it to the pharmacy). Antibiotics are largely ineffective for BV as they destroy all bacteria, not just bad bacteria.
This allows the bad bacteria to proliferate once again after the antibiotics. Not to mention that taking antibiotics for a mild issue like BV is dangerous and can lead to drug-resistant superbugs.
My Queen of Home Remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis
Instead of taking an antibiotic, I prefer to take this probiotic supplement.
It is really the queen of home remedies for bacterial vaginosis. Furthermore, it is prescription free and contains the two prominent strains of beneficial bacteria naturally found in the vagina.
I repeat: This is one of my favorite home remedies for BV. It’s also great for yeast infections, though I don’t think I’ve ever had one because its efficacy has been clinically tested:
Lactobacilli were detected in more women in the lactobacilli-treated group than in the placebo group at 28 day and 60 day test points. Culture findings confirmed a significant increase in vaginal lactobacilli at day 28 and 60, a significant depletion in yeast at day 28 and a significant reduction in coliforms at day 28, 60 and 90 for lactobacilli-treated subjects versus controls. The combination of probiotic L. rhamnosus GR-1 and L. fermentum RC-14 is not only safe for daily use in healthy women, but it can reduce colonization of the vagina by potential pathogenic bacteria and yeast. (source)
It’s the best probiotic I’ve found to deliver beneficial bacteria to the vaginal tract and bring it back into balance.
While I’m using the probiotic, I also use this suppository to directly repopulate the vaginal tract with beneficial flora.
The suppositories contain 10 billion live cells of Lactobacillus rhamnosus and 10 billion live cells of Lactobacillus gasseri. Both of them are very effective at treating BV naturally.
Conclusion – What are the best Home Remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis?
These two afore-mentioned products combined with an overall healthy diet are a great way to heal BV naturally.
Considering that Bacterial Vaginosis is so common, especially among pregnant women, I definitely prefer to first treat it with natural remedies.
Of course, I’m not saying to ignore your doctor’s advice, but be mindful of antibiotic use.
It really should be reserved for dire circumstances, not something as simple and mild as bacterial vaginosis.

How Eating Pussy Could Be Good for Your Health
By now you should know that the vagina is home to billions of bacteria. The official term for this genital ecosystem is the vaginal microbiome, but I like to think of it as my personal Pussy Posse. Only instead of massaging the ego of Leonardo DiCaprio, the vaginal microbiome prevents bad bacteria from blossoming and taking over your cooch. Seventy percent of vaginas are dominated by one species of Lactobacillus, which produce lactic acid and keep things at a pH level of 4.5 down there.
You know where else Lactobacillus exists? Your gut. Your gut bacteria are often referred to as probiotics. These flora may affect everything—from digestion to allergies to eczema to Alzheimer’s—and as the research piles up on the importance of gut bacteria, the marketplace is being flooded with items that will allegedly help regulate your personal intestinal rainforest. Probiotics are being added to foods like yogurt, but also to things like shampoo and shaving cream.
But I can’t help but feel like we’re missing an easy lifehack here. If the vagina is full of good bacteria, and people are eating as much good bacteria as they can, why not just eat a bunch of vagina?
If the vagina is full of good bacteria, and people are eating as much good bacteria as they can, why not just eat a bunch of vagina?
To be a useful probiotic, vaginal fluid would have to contain enough good bacteria to make an effect, defined in Canada and Italy as one billion colony-forming units (CFUs) per serving. On top of that, the bacteria would have to travel safely to the lower intestine (where good bacteria dwells) without getting obliterated by stomach acid.
How much bacteria is in a serving of pussy? Furthermore, what would constitute a serving? According to Dr. Mendes-Soares, there are about 100,000 to 100 million Lactobacillus cells per gram of vaginal fluid. So for one face-humping session to have probiotic properties, the humpee would have to swallow between ten and 10,000 grams (10 kg) of vaginal fluid. One of those seems doable. The other, less so.
Read More: What Does Your Labia Color Say About Your Sex Life?
Let’s assume you have one of the more verdant microbial rainforests, and your partner only needs to slurp down ten grams. How can we be sure those ten grams make it to the lower intestine intact? A 2005 study showed that the presence of glucose in the gastric juices helps protect Lactobacilli as they travel down the GI tract. Pussy fluid is not known for its glucose content. But eating food shortly before eating other stuff could provide the needed sugars in the gastric juices. Lactobacilli is naturally acid resistant, and could potentially make it from the mouth to the gut even without a glucose buffer.
However, another problem that arises with getting one’s probiotics in the wild is the issue of contamination. Going down on someone, “there would also be a transmission of the other current members of the community,” says Mendes-Soares, “both the beneficial and harmful ones.” Meaning, one could be getting Lactobacilli as well as other harmful bacteria. There is also the normal threat of STIs to consider.
For some people, the problematic part of the phrase “probiotic pussy” is the probiotic part. In a 2009 blog post, infectious disease doctor and podcaster Mark Crislip was highly skeptical of the entire probiotic industry. One of his main complaints was that the species of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium found in probiotics are not necessarily the same species that exist in the human body. On that count, vaginal fluid has Activia beat. We know it’s the same kind of bacteria found in the human body, because it was found on a human body. We’re going straight to the source.
The jury is still out on whether probiotics are as useful as Jamie Lee Curtis would have you believe. There is plenty of scientific evidence that probiotics can have an effect on Irritable Bowel Syndrome, diarrhea caused by antibiotics, and other gastrointestinal problems. But we don’t have the same amount of evidence that taking probiotics offers long-term health benefits that could extend your life. Preliminary studies have been done on whether Lactobacillus can help with cholesterol. This could be huge, as heart disease is the number-one killer in America. The results are promising, but studies concluded that more research was needed.
Something the pro-probiotics and anti-probiotics people can agree on: Probiotics only stay in your system if you’re regularly re-upping your supply. Like anything in your diet, pussy will only confer health benefits if you eat it regularly.
- Did you know what you eat can affect how you smell down there?
- If you eat strong-smelling foods such as onions and garlics, it can lead to a pungent smelling vagina.
- It is popularly known that cranberries and cranberry juice offers a myriad of health and beauty benefits on account of its high nutritional value known to be an effective treatment for UTIs.
- Pineapples are also said to help with how you taste down below.
However, these are not the only foods that are good for your vagina. Here are some foods you need to keep in your diet for the general health of your vagina.
- Green tea
Green tea contains polyphenolic catechins which usually kill the E. coli bacteria, that is responsible for causing UTIs. The caffeine in the green tea is also helpful in easing PMS. Just make sure not to over do the green tea as it can lead to liver complications.
Yoghurt contains probiotics that are great in promoting healthy vaginal microflora. This in turn helps prevent infections such as bacterial vaginosis, UTIs and yeast infections. Yoghurt also contains calcium that can help with improving PMS symptoms.
- Whole grain, legumes and vegetables
Legumes, vegetables and whole grains are foods rich in fiber. Taking sufficient amounts of fiber helps foster good bacteria in your bowel. Since most of the bacteria that comes in contact with your vagina is from the colon, it is important that you keep your vagina healthy by keeping your colon healthy.
An apple a day leads to better sexual function in women. This includes your ability to get aroused, your ability to orgasm and sexual satisfaction. All this is made possible by a phytoestrogen found in apples known as phloridzin.
- Oily fish
Vitamin D and omega fatty acids are nutrients that are crucial for your general health and the health of your heart. Taking foods such as salmon will give you a healthy dose of these nutrients. Food that is good for your heart is also good for your sexual health as it helps with arousal and promotes the flow of blood to the area below the belt.
If you eat two or more fruit servings daily, you’re are 11% less likely to suffer from uterine fibroids which are responsible for pelvic pain and irregular bleeding. This is in comparison to those who eat less than two servings of fruit per week.
It is important to stay hydrated in order to maintain a moist and lubricated vaginal area. This will generally help you in getting and staying more aroused.

How to Eat Pussy
Your tongue is not a sword. Flat and broad is better than sharp and stabby. James Olstein
Lesbians, ahead of their time, have always known the importance of cunnilingus. But for far too long, cunnilingus was seen as taboo by both heterosexual women and men. Dick-sucking may be par for the course in straight sex—anything for a man’s pleasure—but pussy-eating? That is the work of the devil.
That time, thank Sappho, is dying, at least in the parts of the world where patriarchy is less inscribed in both culture and law. It’s not entirely dead: According to Peggy Orenstein, the author of the book Girls & Sex, while blowjobs are common, even among teens, all too often they aren’t reciprocated. But treating the vagina like just a warm hole to thrust your dick in is less and less socially acceptable. And so, guys, gals, and assorted nonbinary identities, if you want to be a good lover, you’re gonna need to learn to eat puss.
So how the hell does this work?
The bad news is, as with all sex acts, there isn’t one technique that will magically induce orgasm in everyone. The good news is, it doesn’t take 10,000 hours to get good at it. When in doubt: Ask her. Even if you’re not in doubt: Ask her. Only she knows what feels good for her.
Know what you’re dealing with.
The vagina is the hole, the urethra is where the pee comes out, the clitoris is the little hood-like thing situated at the top of the labia (or lips), and the vulva is the full package. The vast majority of women require clitoral stimulation rather than just penetration to get off, so acquaint yourself with the clit.
If you’ve never seen a cunt before, google it. But again, all cunts, like all people, are different. When you’re about to get busy, take a moment to look at your partner’s vulva and get the lay of the land. You don’t need a headlamp or anything, but don’t be scared to take a peek.
“When you think about how men masturbate, it’s often very fast and furious,” says sex therapist Jamye Waxman. “Oral sex should not be that way.” Start kissing or licking the thighs and outer parts of the vagina and work your way in. Take your time. Breathe on the clit without really touching it and then give it a soft kiss and then stop and start again. In the beginning, less is more. And the longer you tease, the more aroused she’ll be when you finally plunge your face in.
Soooo what should I do with my tongue?
Whatever she responds well to. Some women like variety (think, the alphabet), others like a regular pattern (say, figure eights), and others like a little (or a lot) of both. If it’s intensity she’s after, try sucking on the clit. Also, your tongue is not a sword, so don’t treat it like one. Flat and broad is better than sharp and stabby.
Use your hands.
Think of eating pussy like eating wings: You could do it with just your mouth, but it’ll be a hell of a lot easier if you use your fingers. “I would start with a thumb, pressed just on the entrance of her vagina,” Waxman says. “Don’t go inside just yet. Most people think when they put their fingers inside, they should go right for the G-spot, but you should start at the entrance with just a little bit of pressure before moving inside.”
Okay, so where is the G-spot?
The G-spot—named for sex researcher Ernst Gräfenberg, because of course it’s named after a man—is basically an extension of the clit, but inside the top wall of the vagina. “It’s ribbed, like the roof of your mouth or like a Ruffles potato chip,” Waxman says. When you find it, stroke it with a finger or two (think of a “come hither” motion). She may not come from this alone, but for a lot of women, it helps. (For others, it hurts, so ask before you enter, especially with a new sexual partner.)
Don’t be afraid of toys.
Toys are your friends, but more importantly, they’re her friends, and there is absolutely no reason to feel bad or inadequate if she wants or needs a vibrator. In fact, being open to toys shows confidence, and there is nothing sexier than confidence—other than a well-made vibrator going 60 miles per hour against your clit.
Do not use porn as your guide.
Whoever you’re streaming on FuckTube may think it’s hot to hawk loogies in a woman’s cunt while cutting off her airway with his dick, but your partner very well may not. Just because you see something in a porno doesn’t mean the person you’re with is going to like it. That said, some porn is better than others. Waxman recommends the educational video series Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex as well as Scarleteen, a website with tons of real-world advice on how to bone and bone right.
Is she breathing heavier? Are her hips moving more? Is she making noises when you do something she likes? These are all indicators you’re doing something right, but it’s never a bad idea to ask if what you are doing feels good. This may seem awkward, but it is a hell of a lot less awkward than doing something that causes your partner pain or discomfort. When in doubt, ask.
Always, always, always use dental dams or some kind of barrier if you don’t want to get pregnant or catch some kind of sexually transmitted infection. Just kidding! The only time I’ve seen a dental dam is at the dentist. And while some people are into that kind of thing, from my own personal experience, most women are not. Still, oral sex does come with risks (including throat cancer), so if you’re concerned about staying healthy, ask your partner to get tested for STIs and make sure to get the HPV vaccine for yourself. But one of the greatest upsides of oral is this: No one has ever gotten pregnant from it… except, possibly, the Virgin Mary, but that’s a theory on my part.Food for vaginal health
