Move over, vajazzling. There's a new sparkly trend in town for down there, and it's even stranger.
It's called Passion Dust, and women are so keen on buying it, that the maker of the glitter capsules have sold out in the blink of an eye. In fact, the company says it's "...not currently taking any new orders for Passion Dust since we have completely sold out and must fulfill the hundreds of orders that have already been placed and back-orders."
Hold up, though. Just what is Passion Dust and why are women being putting it up their vagina?
Passion Dust is a glitter for your lady bits. There have always been odd vaginal grooming trends around like dying your pubic hair a different color, shaving your pubic hair into cute shapes with the help of stencils, and even getting piercings down in your sensitive areas. Vajazzling also saw its heyday, so it seems as though many women have been looking for something to, you know, make their lady parts shine for quite some time.
While Passion Dust might seem like a good idea in theory (or just bizarre), there are some pretty serious side effects that can come with using it.
Passion Dust is glitter that comes in a capsule form that you put up inside of your vagina. Thanks to the heat of that area, along with your natural lubricant, the capsule's outside pretty much melts away, leaving you with (surprise!) glittery vaginal fluids. Oh, and the glitter also tastes like candy.
Again, while putting a glitter bomb up your chocha in order to make it shine and taste sweeter might seem like a good idea, it's really not. Many doctors are flocking to the internet and warning women to PLEASE not put glitter in their vagina as it can seriously throw off the good bacteria and pH down there, and lead to infections. Dr. Vanessa Mackay, a spokesperson for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, told The Independent in an interview,
The vagina contains a delicate balance of good bacteria, which are there to protect it. If women place foreign objects inside their vagina, they risk disturbing this balance which may lead to infection, such as bacterial vaginosis or thrush, and inflammation.
These infections can cause itching, burning, and even painful intercourse—quite the opposite of anything hot and passionate.
However, the company fought back and wrote on its official site that women do not have much to worry about. Vaginal secretions help to make sure that the glitter will not cut the inside of their vagina, and they do acknowledge that doctors say not to put anything in a woman's vagina. The site states,
Any gynecologist would tell you that NOTHING should go in your vagina! Nothing concerning the vaginal region comes without some possible risk. You shouldn't have sex without a condom and even latex can be hazardous if you happen to have an allergy, you shouldn't use tampons, douche, powders, perfumes, toys, lubes, lotions, oils and beware of dirty nails and fingers!...The point is; People have opinions and love to share them.
Twitter seems pretty confused and/or grossed out.

Wtf are y'all talking about #VaginaGlitter ??— Kayla (@kaylaxoleigh) September 23, 2013
Ladies, if you are worried about how your man will perceive your vagina, don't be! There are other ways to care for your vagina, like washing your intimate areas with soap and water, and eating a good diet. There is no need to put harmful chemicals and other foreign objects into your vagina, including glitter. Your lady bits were not meant to sparkle, or else they would do it naturally.
It's also not meant to taste like a bag of Skittles. So please, let's keep it that way.
