Well, to be honest the *best* way to keep clean and healthy down there is to avoid all detergents, harmful ingredients, etc. I use a 100% natural, organic herbal soap. I use either soaps from Herbaria (love them!) or Auromere and also Olivella. They're all really great, but my favorite it Herbaria.

The main ingredients to avoid in your vaginal soaps are glycerin and parabens. But there are tons of other bad ones too. You can do far more damage than good by cleaning with a bad soap. I'd avoid drugstore soaps all together. I'm pretty big on my health, especially downstairs.

I guess it all depends on your own needs as every cooter is different. Lol. I personally don't have to go through a lot of trouble (just simple regular washing) to keep things nice, clean. I've never experienced odor or problems. I've had 2 yeast infections and they were due to a pregnancy and the second due to antibiotic rounds. That's about the only problems I have ever experienced health-wise with my vagina.

I'd highly, highly recommend going natural only at least for your soap down there. I mean, I always use natural soap all over my body, but I know it's tough when you want to use your nice creamy wash, so sometimes I'll use that on my legs.

Also, no douching. Douching leads to yeast infections and cleans out all the good bacteria which leaves your crotch totally ready for the bad to build up -- same way your digestive system works when you kill off the bad bacteria.

As for taste I have no idea? I never had my vagina have a taste. Everyone has their own skin scent all over, and I know I have my own too, but never an actual taste of my crotch, unless you mean secretions? In that case, different vaginal secretions will have diff. tastes. Discharge, ovulation can have a vinegar scent and or taste. Besides that, I haven't actually had my crotch taste like anything besides that skin taste, which really isn't a "taste" but a personal smell that can be detected when you taste the area. I guess you could say I'm very... close with my crotch. Lol

Seriously, avoiding all harmful soaps and things like douches will be the *best* thing you can do for your cooter. Do some research if it makes you feel more comfy.

If you don't shave, keep your pubic hair clean, at least clean it once per day to make sure it doesn't build up smells and general gunk.

Vagina just tastes like... vagina, no real way to describe it really. As long as you practice basic hygiene there really shouldn't be any problems with taste or smell. If you do notice something unusual you should contact your doctor because it's usually an indicator that something isn't quite right. Vaginas are self-cleaning so there's no need to douche, in fact douching can throw off your body's natural balance and give you a nasty infection. On that note, don't use harsh body soaps on your genitals either - use a mild soap or cleanser or just plain water, and baby wipes if you want to help keep things clean.

Best phrase of the night. Vagina tastes like vagina.

Now to be fair, everyone tastes and smells just a little different, so get acquainted with what you usually smell and taste like. It helps you know that everything is okay, especially since your vagina is self-cleaning. Often the sign of a yeast infection is when there is no odor on top of the cottage-cheese-like discharge.

I would give similar suggestions as Kendra. I don't douche and I don't put any soap down there. The one time I listened to someone and got it into my head that I needed to, I got my first and only yeast infection. If you are worried about odor, you can just rinse around your area with water if you get a little sweaty or use a wipe, but that's really it. You shouldn't be messing with it. And usually, your bum is what is responsible for stronger smells as it isn't that far from your vagina.

On the other hand if you are concerned about pH and avoiding infections, making sure you have reasonable water intake helps to keep things balanced. Too much coffee and carbonated drinks can be troublesome to your pH if you are concerned about that. Having at least 1 serving of fruits and veggies helps to keep things balanced, processed foods are not the greatest for you in general but throws things of.

All these comments have been good & should help you. I'll just add, that as someone who has tasted different vaginas, there's nothing offensive about them or their smell & if you keep clean as others recommended, you won't acquire a taste, either. If you do, it's an indicator that something is off & needs to be checked out. The best thing you can do is use a very gentle cleanser for your genitals - that's really the best advice of all. Only other thing I can recommend is allowing air to access your crotch. Use breathable material like cotton for the crotch of your underpants. If you can, don't wear them while sleeping & try not to wrap yourself in too tight clothes down there. A healthy vagina needs to breathe a bit because it's naturally dark & moist which makes it a perfect home for nasties if you disturb it's delicate balance, say with perfumed soap or antibiotics.
