Google “vagina facts” sometime. Interesting stuff pops up. Which is how this tidbit came up: apparently squalene is found in shark livers and the vajayjay. Interesting fact! Jokes about what hoo hoos and sharks have in common aside (que Hall and Oates She’s a Maneater…), what is squalene? And why would it be naturally occurring down there?
For optimal vaginal health we like to say, “The vagina is a self-cleaning oven” and to leave it alone, washing only the vulva (the outside bits) and back end. However as we all know if you want to wash with more than water, it’s pretty hard to keep cleansers out of the vagina.
When choosing Whether you buy your underwear in bulk or don the holy grail of panties (i.e., the trifecta of undies: sexy, comfortable, machine washable), we want to be sure you take into account what is truly the mother of all “must haves” before you seal the deal on what hugs your most personal parts: the right material.he right underwear, materials matter, see how to steer clear of dyes and chemicals and learn what fabrics are best for your sensitive intimate area.
aginas. Every woman has one, but how many of us know how truly amazing and versatile this particular part of the female anatomy is? Our vaginas can be our best friends and our worst enemies. From experiencing the satisfaction of the perfect orgasm, to dealing with yeast infections, and even becoming a little apartment for a growing fetus, our vaginas are magnificent creations, wouldn’t you agree?
Ahhhh! The new year has arrived! I am so excited to see all of the amazing things that lie ahead for myself personally as well as for Healthy Hoohoo. The past year was absolutely fabulous, and I thank each and every one of you for believing in my healthy hoohoo mission and for taking time to share it with others.
So what’s up for 2015? Who knows, right? One thing I can tell you is that the start of a new year is an excellent time to introduce some new healthy habits into your daily routine and tell those bad habits bye-bye.
There are few things in this world that have the power to stir some pretty powerful, deeply held emotions within us. Family and friends are on the top of that short list. And while all families are not as traditional as The Brady Bunch and all friendships are not as crazy as Thelma and Louise, these are the relationships that form the core of our true being. It is with these particular people that have been carefully placed in our lives that we have shared our most secret thoughts, our darkest secrets, our funniest moments and our bitter sadness. Thank goodness for the holidays; a time to celebrate these relationships regardless of the time or distance that has separated us during the rest of the year.
Ah, the holidays…the time of year when stress levels are at their peak. Between shopping for just the right gifts, hanging decorations, planning family meals, and making sure there is enough room for Uncle Bob and Aunt Ruthie in the guest room it’s enough to make someone lose their mind. One of the reasons we tend to feel so stressed out is because we are so focused on our to-do lists that we forget to set aside time for ourselves.
When we hear the word “October” we immediately think of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, right? Everywhere we go we see pink ribbons and t-shirts with the word “survivor” emblazoned on them.
What few people may realize is that October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Did you know that on average nearly 20 people a minute in the United States become victims of physical violence at the hands of their partner? That is nearly 10 million women and men per year!
