Douching

Definition - What does Douching mean?

Douching is a process that involves cleaning out or washing the vagina by flushing it with water or a mixture containing ingredients such as vinegar, iodine or baking soda that is mixed with water. The purpose of douching is to cleanse the vagina, eliminate odor, and rinse away lingering menstrual blood.

Kinkly explains Douching

Many health professionals advise against the practice of douching because the vagina is self-cleansing. It can upset the balance of the vaginal flora and acidity. A healthy vagina will contain a balance of both good and bad bacteria to maintain a healthy, acidic environment. Douching can lead to an overgrowth of "bad" bacteria which can lead to infection.

  • It was the wildness of it that got me going: the primal lust, the sheer needs of two people in heat, quickly finding ways to express their sacred hunger to each other in animal passion.
