It wasn’t that long ago when doctors were forced to warn women not to shove ice lollies in their vaginas in a bid to cool down – and now they’re doing the same for men who have been rubbing toothpaste on their penises.

Yes, despite it being a totally obvious thing not to do, it’s been discovered that some dudes are using the minty stuff on their dicks thinking it will help them to last longer in bed.
According to NewsHub, the weird trend was sparked after a series of YouTube videos claimed it could help men to “Get Hard Erection” and “Increase Timing”.
This has been going on for some time now, with one video racking up nearly 2.5 million views since it was posted late last year. The uploaded states:
Simple Home remedy that will let you double your performance. This will make stable and last longer than usual while performing your duties.
Coconut oil, Olive oil and Colgate toothpaste can help you gaining an extra stamina and stability.
Medical experts are now speaking out to warn that this so-called “remedy” could lead to burns and blisters. In other words, don’t do it unless you want a crusty sore dick.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, consultant pharmacist James O’Loan said:
I’d urge anyone thinking of trying this rather worrying ‘toothpaste’ technique to cease and desist.
It won’t do anything at all to combat premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction, despite the claims being made in these videos.
By putting it on your genitals, you actually risk a mild burn, as well as blisters and scarring. And toothpaste should in no way be used as a lubricant, either.
It could lead to infections in the woman’s vagina. You do not want foreign material inside the vagina, it’s an irritant.
Anyone using toothpaste for sex is kidding themselves. There’s real remedies that work out there.
Well said. So there you have it – if you were thinking of trying this bizarre home remedy, just don’t.
It’s not like you can’t get certified numbing gel from the shops. Even Poundland have their own range.
