Doctor warns women to stop putting hot wax on their vaginas

Couples have been using the method during foreplay

There are a variety of ways couples try and spice up their sex lives.

However, one new method has been strongly disapproved by doctors and it in involves putting hot wax onto the vagina.

For some bizarre reason, many couples have been trying out the method as part of "temperature play", which is the term described as creating cool or warming sensations on your private area.

Some people have been pouring candle wax onto their intimate area and as you can imagine, doctors have warned women to stop doing it.

Dr Shree Datta, Consultant Gynaecologist at MyHealthcare Clinic, told the Daily Star: "While many women wax their bikini line, I would recommend avoiding the use of hot wax during sex anywhere near the sensitive skin of your vulva or internally.

"Any temperature play with wax can risk burning the skin, tissue damage, rashes, ulcers and blisters, as well as risking infection."

It can also increase the risk of developing a yeast infection, too.

Dr Shree added: "Using any scented products can cause irritation or potentially disrupt the balance of your vaginal flora – which may result in bacterial vaginosis or yeast infections. In short, I would advise that playing with wax during sex is not worth the risk."

Last month, we reported that women were warned against putting toothpaste on their vaginas in an attempt to spruce them up.

Ladies were apparently applying toothpaste to their privates (yep, really) to try and tighten their vaginas.

A string of articles and tweets had been shared online claiming the dental product can be used to tighten the vagina and increase men's sexual pleasure during intercourse.

Unsurprisingly, doctors warned women against using the product on their private area.

Vanessa Mackay, consultant gynaecologist and spokesperson for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, told The Sun: "It is a myth that toothpaste will tighten the vagina.

"Putting toothpaste into the vagina, or on the vulva, would not only be uncomfortable but it could also cause serious damage and disrupt the natural flora of the vagina leading to the potential for infections like bacterial vaginosis and thrush."

Meanwhile, over the summer, women were warned to stop putting ice lollies inside their vaginas to cool down in the heatwave.
