Doctors Tell Women ‘Stop Putting Wasp Nests Up Your Vaginas’

That should be a given.

I’m not a woman but I’ve been told they experience great anxiety about the loosening of their vaginas, which is the only reason why I can see any of them trying the new miracle solution of putting a wasp nest up there to strengthen their muscles.

The new technique is being championed by several online retailers who claim that it can tighten the vagina, cure urinary infections, abolish bad odours and improve the user’s sex life. The product is known as an oak gall – it’s formed when a wasp lays its eggs in tree’s leaf buds so that the larvae can develop inside.

This causes the deformity in the tree known as an oak gall, which sellers are claiming can tighten the vagina if ground down into paste and applied to the area. Unfortunately, none of these claims are backed up by science and Canadian gynaecologist Jen Gunter has taken to the internet to encourage women not to buy and use them:

Oak Galls

This product follows the same dangerous pathway of other ‘traditional’ vaginal practices.

Drying the vaginal mucosa increases the risk of abrasions during sex (not good) and destroys the protective mucous layer (not good).

It could also wreak havoc with the good bacteria. In addition to causing pain during sex it can increase the risk of HIV transmission. This is a dangerous practice with real potential to harm.

Here’s a pro-tip, if something burns when you apply it to the vagina it is generally bad for the vagina.

No shit huh? Again, I don’t have a vagina, but I wouldn’t be doing the same thing with my dick, that’s for sure. Not really clear how it can increase risk of HIV transmission – surely that’s gonna happen if you have unprotected sex with someone who has HIV with or without a wasp’s nest all over your vagina? Maybe I’m wrong about that though.

Anyway, the moral of the story is if you think it’s a good idea to put a wasp’s nest up your vagina, then think again. It isn’t. For more wasps, check out another reason why you should never fuck with a wasp’s nest. Ouch.
