Be Dirty Minded, Do the Dirty...but Don't Think You're Dirty
Women have been told for centuries that they are dirty because they have bodily fluid or maybe because they bleed once a month (which I'll admit does still creep me out...but that's not the point!). Womens bodies are not dirty and neither are mens. If we stink, we need a shower not a wipe.
So...how is this for sexy? Use wipe. Wake up in the morning with a lovely yeast infection - I'm positive you are going to feel terribly sexy with the burning, the itching, the cottage-cheesy chunks. Enjoy that mental image...I gagged writing it.
I looked up some of the ingredients in this Fresh and Sexy wipe
Disodium EDTA - an ingredient commonly used to remove limescale...ouch?
Propylene Glycol- "Propylene glycol is a component in newer automotive antifreezes and de-icers used at airports...glycols are good for this purpose [freezing temperature is lowered] as they are cheap, non-corrosive and have very low volatility."
I had to look up almost every single ingredient on the list because it's ALL chemicals. What happened to plain old soap and water? I'm a little creeped out with the idea of putting something like that anywhere NEAR my vajayjay!
And what about our carbon footprint? Even if these wipes are biodegradable - we have just bought into an unnecessary product that has a paper/plastic box, shipping (oil), manufacturing at the factory...and then the product gets used, dumped in a landfill or septic system where it can't biodegrade because it's under plastic bags.
Women, listen up. You're not dirty. Men, you aren't either. Have a dirty mind, do the dirty, even play dirty...but don't buy into this stupid advertisement that you ARE dirty.
