Do not put ice lollies up your vagina during heatwave, experts warn
This hot weather can cause many of us to lose our cool and start to behave in an irrational manner in order to lower our body temperatures. We've already reported on freezable bra inserts for women and freezable boxers for men, but now health experts have urged women not to insert ice lollies into their vaginas in an effort to cool off.
Yes, it is the health warning many of us never thought we'd have to hear, but it turns out some women are getting so desperate in this heat, that they may be reaching for the first phallic-shaped thing they find in the freezer drawer.
But now several health experts have spoken out about the dangers of inserting foods and foreign objects into your hoo-hah, including ice lollies.
Speaking to the Metro, Dr Sarah Welsh, the co-founder of condom manufacturers HANX, said:
"The vagina is composed of very delicate and sensitive skin, hence, things that may seem innocent to other areas of the body, if they come in contact with the vagina, can cause infections, irritations, and damage.
"There are many things that should never go near a vagina, and ice lollies are up there. The ice can stick to the delicate skin of the vagina and cause real trauma and damage.
"What’s more, putting any foodstuff inside your vagina can introduce microbes, disrupting its normal balance and allowing an environment for bacteria to grow and infections to develop."
Another issue would be if the ice lolly were to break away from the stick and become stuck - which would not only feel uncomfortable but harm your lady parts.
In addition, Dr Shree Datta, a consultant gynecologist at MyHealthcare Clinic provided more appropriate suggestions:
"My advice would be to avoid any foreign bodies in the vagina for risk of infection. I would suggest loose cotton underwear and avoiding tight clothing to prevent any irritation and dermatitis developing.
"A cool shower (without internal douching) and keeping well hydrated should suffice."
So, if your starting to burn up during the heatwave, remember that Mr. Freeze is just a food, and should only go in your mouth!
