Caring for your vagina should be a simple task. However, years of misinformation about your vagina's cleanliness and sexiness has let some pretty unsafe ideas take hold in the popular culture. Accordingly, it's smart to know the things to never put on or near your lady parts.
For starters, some well-meaning attempts to clean your vagina could seriously backfire. In general, vagina hygiene is simple: use gentle cleansers and nothing else. Using douches, heavily scented soaps, or steam is not necessary. You aren't trying to scrub up your privates to perform surgery, after all. It's pretty clean on its own.
Next, you may accidentally harm your vagina in the pursuit of pleasure. Now, this is not to kink-shame: if you want to get weird in the bedroom, by all means, let loose. Just keep in mind that some things make better sex toys than others, and not all lubricant is created equal. You want to stick to toys and lubes that are safe for your vagina so you can avoid injury or infection.
Lastly, grooming techniques can also affect your private parts. In general, you will be smart to stick with waxing, shaving, or laser treatments, because other methods may result in serious burns where you least want them. Fortunately, it's pretty easy to lean about everything that does not belong near your privates, so you can maintain a happy, healthy vagina.
