The Disturbing Reason Why Women Are Putting Glitter In Their Vaginas

While it's encouraging our vaginal health and wellbeing is becoming increasingly less of a taboo, it's given birth to some questionable - and dangerous - trends. We've come a long way since the days of vajazzles with all manner of products and treatments now available to help care for our precious bits - from lip balms to wasp nests (!?). But now women are deliberately inserting glitter into their vaginas so they can cum like unicorns...

If unicorn-horn dildos weren't proof enough our obsession with the mythical creature is out of control, the fact some women are inserting glitter capsules into their vaginas so they can cum like unicorns, definitely is. The colourfully-named Passion Dust Intimacy Capsules are being marketed as the "the pretty little pill that makes you 'magically delicious'" and promise a "sparkly" orgasm, flavoured like "sweet candy". Because isn't that what you've always wanted?

The capsules are being sold by online retailer Pretty Women Inc with its website reiterating that they're not designed to physically alter your sexual performance, only to make orgasms more "fun". The pretty little pills are inserted into the vagina where they naturally dissolve and release their "delicious" contents, giving you that mystical orgasm you've always dreamed of.

But while Pretty Women Inc claim gyno glitter is safe for vaginal insertion, qualified gynaecologist Dr. Jen Gunter - who recently wrote about the dangers of inserting ground-up wasp nests down there - has warned it could irritate the delicate area, potentially leading to dermatitis and increased risk of STIs. The ingredient list of the vaginal fairy dust state it's a sugar, which is less harmful than plastic shards, but Dr. Gunter has warned that sugar is a catalyst for vaginal bacteria - a statement backed up by studies.

Her advice? Simply "don't glitter bomb your vagina". But despite the stern words of a medical professional regarding the capsules, Pretty Women Inc are out of stock so if you do want to add some literal sparkle to your sex life, we recommend Dr. Gunter's suggestion: "Why not put on some glitter lip gloss and apply it the old fashioned way!"

Is this a glitter trend too far or are you intrigued to try the pretty little pills? Let us know your thoughts @soFeminineUK
