Yes, that’s right.Just the word "bomb" should be off putting!
You can make your most private area sparkle during your most intimate moments.
Enter Passion Dust Intimacy Capsules — tiny capsules that allow you to put a “glitter bomb” in your lady bits.
While unicorn lovers around the globe may be sparkling with excitement, a top gynecologist is urging women not to try the bizarre new trend, warning it could trigger nasty STIs or even “vaginal sunburn.”
Online retailer Pretty Woman Inc. is selling the Passion Dust capsules.
They are filled with candy-scented glitter that is designed “to add a sparkle and flavor to your natural vaginal fluids” to make you “magically delicious.”
They work by dissolving after being inserted into the vagina, releasing the glittery contents with the vagina’s natural lubricants.
And they are proving very popular.
According to the website, they sold out of the sparkly product in a matter of days.
But Dr. Jen Gunter, a Canadian gynecologist, says they are bound to lead to a dangerous infection.
She warned women not to use the product and criticized the makers for initially not providing an extensive ingredients list.
She wrote on her blog: “The glitter could be cosmetic grade glitter (tiny pieces of plastic) suspended in some unknown goo of unknown osmolality.
“It also could be ‘edible glitter,’ which is sugar.”
“Could the plastic be a [breeding ground] for bacteria? Sure. I’ve seen a nasty inflammatory vaginal discharge from sand so this could be a similar setup.”
“Might the little flakes of plastic produce vaginal wall granulomas (a granuloma is walled off inflammatory mass produced by tissue in response to a foreign body)? They could.”
“If it isn’t plastic and it’s sugar, well, depositing sugar in the vagina lets the bad bacteria go wild.”
“Studies looking at treating bacterial vaginitis with vaginas probiotics were halted because the glucose keeping the probiotics alive made the bad bacteria go wild.”
“Could the vehicle be an irritant and cause a vaginal contact dermatitis? Yes and ouch. Think vaginal sunburn!”Sounds like a pretty good bacterial medium to me, and when it got thick and slimy you'd never know the difference!
The updated website reveals that Passion Dust is made of gelatin capsules, starch-based edible glitter, acacia (gum arabic) powder, Zea Mays starch, and vegetable stearate.
It warns that the particles of glitter could trigger an asthma attack for people who suffer from asthma if ingested during oral sex, but claims it is “safe” to use.But boobs? Go for it!
It also claims, “if you’ve ever had vaginal issues you had them before you used Passion Dust.”
