Known as America’s doctor on Oprah, Dr. Mehmet Oz is one smart cookie.  While vice-chair and professor of surgery at Columbia University he also directs the Cardiovascular Institute and Complementary Medicine Program at NewYork–Presbyterian Hospital. 

Though his research interests are in the area of the heart, he helps women by discussing issues on Oprah that sometimes are at the “heart” of a women’s existence, her sweet spot. 

When asked if douching was a good way to stay clean, he made the now so popular statement that the “vajayjay” is a self cleaning oven.  He was quoted on Oprah as saying “”You have your own bacteria in there. They’re for you. You’re supposed to have them there. When you wipe them out with a vinegar douche, then you’re left with repopulating it with whatever happens to be nearby. It may not be what’s best for you,” he says.

Douching, Dr. Oz says, may even make you more likely to have some problems, such as ectopic pregnancies and infections that can cause infertility. “It’s a big problem. That’s why I don’t think there’s any really good reason to douche. Period,” Dr. Oz says.

Keeping the vagina clean externally is important, and Dr. Oz says you should always wipe front to back to prevent urinary tract infections. And if you are worried about something in that area, you should go to a doctor and get treatment—Dr. Oz says that covering up problems with a douche won’t solve anything.

Oh Dr. Oz, tell them about SweetSpot Labs wipettes!

You Douche Bag

by Cross Woodfield

 

So a ton of my friends are fond of calling people “douche bags,” girls mourning over lost flings are comforted by their besties—“that’s because he’s a douche.” I always kind of accepted the term, nodding and giggling, all the while wondering what a douche actually was.

 

I assumed it was a wipe used for your sweetest spot…and a douche bag was the bag they give it to you in if you buy it at the drug store or something.

 

Finally I looked it up on wikipedia, and it is NOT AT ALL what I thought….it’s a bag of water with a tube attached that you stick up your vajayjay and squirt…the closest thing I can compare it to in terms of appearance is a small bicycle pump.

 

To me that is so odd that we would clean something on the inside of our body…when in reality the vagina is a “self-cleaning oven.”  I mean the inside of the body is made to sort of take care of itself…it’s really not our place to go inside and feel around a bit, and squirt things everywhere.

 

I just use wipettes myself…and I may venture into bidet-in-a-bottle land someday.  But I trust my body to deal with the inside stuff.  I’ll just keep things looking, feeling, and smelling nice…sometimes it’s what’s on the outside that counts.
