This is the single best article about the scent of vulvas and vaginas.
The article is called
I think this topic is INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT. I have wayyyyy too many girlfriends who don’t like cunnilingus because they are insecure about their scent. If any guy or gal going down on you thinks you’re going to smell like peaches and strawberries, they are mistaken and need to learn that vulvas smell like vulvas. (SPOILER: Most people who go down on women know that vulvas smell and taste like vulvas. Those of us on the receiving end need to learn this fact and learn to love our scents.)
Martha Kempner wrote this article. She deserves a serious low five.
She starts with a very important anatomy lesson:
VULVA = “everything on the outside between your legs – your labia majora, labia minora, mons pubis, clitoris, clitoral hood, urethral opening, vaginal opening”
VAGINA = “the muscle that connects your uterus to your body”
My biggest pet peeve is when people call vulvas “vaginas.” VULVA is an awesome word. We should use it more. Especially correctly.
Kempner goes on to talk about what vulvas should smell like and how vulvas should be taken care of.
(SCENT SPOILER: However you smell is normal. Be concerned if your smell changes – then something is up.)
(CARE SPOILER: Taking care of a vulva is easy peasy. Do almost nothing. Read the article for more info.)
