Did you ever notice how the things we think about most are the things we talk about least? The reason is that not a lot of our thoughts are not really lunch-appropriate. We think a lot about sex and those awkward things about it. One of those things is our smell (and taste) down there. The smell of fish would be very embarrassing – but how do you keep your vagina smelling like a field of lavender? This is how.

Visit Your Gynecologist Regularly

It is not something you love hearing – all of us wish an article could replace doctors, but sadly it’s not the case. If you feel an ugly smell down there, you might have an infection or a VD. No one wants that – but you have to make sure you don’t have it. Most of them are easily treatable, so you don’t have to get very stressed. Even if your smell is OK, a visit to the gynecologist is in order – at least every six months.

Take Care of Your Hygiene

By hygiene, we don’t mean “take regular showers” – you already know that. But intimate hygiene is a bit different. Your vagina is the most sensitive part of your body and you shouldn’t wash it with regular soap. Buy a special intimate wash with neutral Ph value – 5.5.

Wash with intimate wash at least once a day. When you have your period, make sure you change your pads or tampons regularly.

Underwear

If you have a sensitive vagina, avoid underwear that isn’t made of cotton. Cotton is the fabrique that irritates the skin least. Use your lacy, sexy underwear in special occasions only. Also, cotton doesn’t mean “not hot”. You can find designs that will set the mood as high as any silk thong.

Herbal Tea

If you really, really want to make sure, you can rinse your vagina with mint tea once a week. It’s a classic “grandma’s advice” and has worked for generations – it will work for you too. It’s cheap and easy to do – and will really help your vagina smell and taste as good as possible.

You Taste Like the Food You Eat

What you eat will affect how you taste when he goes down on you. A great idea is pineapple juice – but any other fruits are good for your smell and taste down there. Drink lots of water and stay away from alcohol – asparagus, fish, crabs and spicy food will make you smell funny. Medications can also cause a bad “scent”. A mixture of milk almonds, milk and honey can make you taste sweet.

Let the Games Begin

Now that you did everything possible to taste good, you can spice it up. If you’re playing, play good. Use whipped cream or chocolate in the bedroom – be his favourite cake and let him go down on you. Don’t be ashamed – after all of the above, there is no way you don’t taste like a candy.

Play, have fun – and return the favour!
