‘Love Mist’ might sound quite harmless and maybe even a little bit cute, but actually it’s the nickname of a bizarre new spa treatment that freezes your genitals. Not sounding so cute anymore.
A spa up in Manchester is offering the procedure, which is supposed to boost customers’ endorphin levels and improve their sex drive. It involves a trained therapist blasting the area with a vapour that’s -160 degrees, via a liquid nitrogen tank, in the form of vapour.
Due to the sudden drop in temperature, blood quickly flows to the area causing a release of endorphins. Here’s what the spa has to say about it:
While the skin continues to feel the ‘freeze’ the body sends signals back and forth to the brain.
These messengers tell the brain if there is damage to the tissues, to repair them.
It’s this that along with the instant endorphin level energy boost and natural high, generates a tighter, youthful, clear and vibrant genital skin appearance through boosting collagen.
The whole thing isn’t too pricey either at only £50 for a 30 minute session. It doesn’t actually sound too bad, but still – the thought of liquid nitrogen going anywhere near by bits is just a no no.
