First we had brazilian waxing. Then we had vajazzling. Now, we have putting glitter inside your vagina.
Passion Dust Intimacy Capsules are glitter-filled capsules you shove up your vagootz before sex.
And because we humans are a particularly extra species, the capsules have taken the internet by storm.
“PASSION DUST is a sparkalized capsule that is inserted into the vagina at least 1 hour prior to having sexual intercourse,” reads the website.
“As the capsules becomes increasingly warmed and moistened by the natural vaginal fluids it will begin to dissolve releasing the sparkling, candy flavored PASSION DUST inside of the capsule.”
The capsules are made from gelatin, starch-based edible glitter, acacia (gum arabic) powder, Zea Mays starch and vegetable stearate, which the product sellers, Pretty Woman inc, reckon are totally safe to insert your vaginal cavity.
Sure, it sounds like a one way ticket to a cut-up, yeast-infected vaginae, but the website reckons if that happens it’s totally your stupid vagina’s fault anyway:
“If you’ve ever had vaginal issues, you had them before you used Passion Dust anyway. If you’ve ever had a yeast infection, I’m sure it wasn’t caused by glitter; it just happens sometimes (Oh, the joys of being a girl!).”
If you’re not convinced these capsules are a bad idea, the website’s FAQ warn of the potential for asthma attacks if the glitter particles are ingested through oral sex. Yum as.
Medical professionals have already come out to condemn the product, with US-based Dr. Jen Gunter penning a blog post warning people not to use the (currently sold out) product:
“Just because something is safe for your lips, for example glitter lip gloss, doesn’t mean it is safe for the vagina. After all one can remove lip gloss and lip bacteria doesn’t control your gastrointestinal track or protect you from gonorrhea or HIV. Is it safe to gargle might be a better first step in the quest for vagina glitter, but even then the mucosa and anatomy are so different it is really best to not put an untested substance vaginally,” she wrote.
“Vaginal injury and granulomas aside the point of the vaginal glitter appears to be “for him,” you know because a vagina au naturel just isn’t enough. I hate, hate, hate the messaging behind this (and all other vaginal “enhancement” products). Why do we have to shame women inside and out?”
And our favourite line?
“A vagina isn’t a craft show.”
