Ask Pure:To Douche or not to Douche


No one asked us but the answer is yes, you should be taking a daily multivitamin.

Tommy from Tampa writes, “I’ll be blunt. Do you guys always douche when you bottom? When I was younger, I never did because I didn’t know it was a thing. However, now I feel so insecure unless I have twenty minutes in my shower. My boyfriend is all about spontaneous sex and I feel like I am killing the moment. How do y’all approach sex on the fly without douching? Well, Tommy, you asked the right people! As a company that started with a fiber pill to help you stay ready for that D, we fervently believe in a more holistic approach to sexual hygiene. Sure, sometimes after a big weekend bender of tequila and tex-mex, a fiber supplement may not be enough. But the truth is that you can learn to listen to your body and learn when you are ready for action or when you need a little extra time before receiving any visitors. Obviously, our advice is to always supplement with our blend of fiber along with lots of water. Couple that with a wet wipe for good measure and you may be surprised by just how confident you feel. But it is totally up to you and your comfort zone. If your boyfriend is into spontaneous sex, you might also have a conversation about what exactly excites him and how you both can feel comfortable in exploring those spur-of-the-moment kinks. There is a lot you can do without any need for prepping your under-carriage. It is also worth noting that you should take caution when douching. Excessive douching can rupture the lining of your anal wall, leaving you at an increased risk of exposure to STIs. This is not to say that douching is bad, but to urge you to keep your sexual health at the forefront of your sex life. For more on this, check out our blog on the dangers of over douching.

Ultimately, to douche or not is something that is completely up to your comfort level and within your control. However, douching isn’t the only option when it comes to sexual cleanliness, so don’t feel afraid to explore all of the hygienic tools in your sexy toolbox.
