Casual Sex and Your Vagina

Take a moment to look at your vagina. Inspect it. Get in touch with your vagina. Learn to love your vagina because no man can love your vagina better than you can. Despite the trauma you may have put it through or the lack of interest you  may  have shown it, your vagina is still beautiful and resilient. Your vagina is like a plump ripe fruit, or  it can resemble a budding flower. It is fragile and strong all at the same time. With pain and strength it can push out new life, and in passion, pleasure and even reluctance it can hold a penis. In it’s brokenness the vagina heals itself, and  it is designed with the capability of protecting itself. Your vagina is more than just a hole.

Casual sex is not empowering, but being knowledgeable about what is going on with your vagina is.Unfortunately, falling into the habit of having casual sex without a condom can  become common. Most women are solely concerned about pregnancy, but not enough worry about catching a sexually transmitted infection.

Having a smelly, itchy, crotch can give you  as much low self-esteem as getting rejected from a guy you had casual sex with. Your vagina having a scent is normal, and hopefully you are in tune with the  way your vagina smells. Every woman’s vagina has a scent, it is nothing to be ashamed of. But, as  a woman you should be able to identify your normal scent, from an abnormal scent. An abnormal scent is a foul smelling odor.

What’s going on down there when you develop an itch or foul smelling odor? It could be a number of things. The fear of not knowing or assuming that it could be something more serious always freaks people out. It could be a yeast infection, which is common, at least once in every woman’s life she will get a yeast infection. A yeast infection is no reason to hang your head in shame or wear granny panties, it’s just part of having a vagina. Knowing what to do to treat and prevent a yeast infection is important. Yeast infections can be  spread from partner to partner. And yes men can re- infect women with yeast. So if you are engaging in casual sex use protection every time.

Itching and foul-smelling discharge is another reason for concern among women, especially those who have or have had multiple sex partners. Oral sex feels good. And to some who try to remain “pure” they don’t  count it as sex. Receiving oral sex can be just as dangerous as having vaginal and penile intercourse. Bacterial vaginosis(BV) is very common among women who receive oral sex. Your vagina is  cleaner than a man’s mouth. BV causes itching and odor and is very hard to get rid of, in fact it is often times a recurring infection.

As a woman it is important to be in touch with your vagina. When I read about all these infections that are treatable it just makes casual sex sound a little less casual. My vagina cringes at memories of my past sex life, and the way I abused it.

Your vagina is part of you and you should treat it as such. Protect it from infections. After all, is casual sex really worth your vaginal health? The next time you decide to hop into bed with a random stranger especially without a condom try to remember  to treat your vagina with love and respect.

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body,”( 1 Corinthians 6:19-20).
