I think this is circa 1988 or 1989.

Ladies, I was going to write a post about how Gwyneth wants us all to steam clean our “uterus et al”, but then the Royalist, of all people, said it so much better than I could.

Bear in mind, GP is the same woman who swears by colonics, fasts, and juice cleanses, which says to me that she regularly terrorizes her body in a variety of horrifying ways. It’s actually possible that her shit don’t stink.

Instead, read this — Your Vagina is Not Cussing: Good, Simply Vulvovaginal Hygiene Tips — and learn from it.

Oh sure, Boston in January has the potential to be awful, but who can resist such a lure as this: Continue reading
