Is this even safe?

Is this even safe?

LadyEarlGrey LadyEarlGrey
I bought a book today about ways to spice up your sex life and what not. The author mentioned using all kinds of props and such to make things more interesting. Most were pretty basic and sounded perfectly safe. However, she mentioned placing a moistened alka seltzer tablet in your "love canal" before having sex! To me this doesn't sound pleasent but I'm also not sure how safe that is. Has anyone tried this? Is it actually safe?

I certainly wouldn't try it.. It could mess up your pH!

I would definitely avoid sticking an alka seltzer tablet anywhere but a glass of water to fully dissolve. I don't have any kind of a health background to be able to tell you exactly why this might be really bad, but it certainly sounds like it could mess you up and I personally wouldn't try it.

Sounds like a terrible idea - who's the author?

I didnt look up the ingredients, but I think Alka Seltzer (the original, not the cold formula) contains aspirin and sodium bicarb. I'm assuming the author is suggesting that the bicarb release will be stimulating? While I probably also wouldn't recommend doing this, I don't think there wold be much risk, especially if it's one time. It would be like doing a soda water douche.

If in doubt, do without.


I personally refuse to insert anything that has relation to "food". I'm sure there is a very small amount of sugar in alka-seltzer so that's a good reason to stay away from it.

No altoids, no mints, no pop rocks...fruit, chocolate, or whipped cream. (Thank Gods I didn't end up with a splosher, eh?)

Yeah, the vagina is supposed to stay acidic. At best, putting a basic alka seltzer in your VJ would invite infection due to the pH upset!

OMG. I would NOT do that. Yes, it can mess up your Ph levels, triggering vaginal infections and maybe even urinary tract infections. Also, it has aspirin in it, and can cause burning of mucous membranes. (Including the vagina and the penis.)

Who the hell writes some of these books?

I'm up for a lot of new things, but ain't nothing gonna get me to put an Alka Seltzer in my cootch.

What book is this, so we can know to stay away from it? Also, I have issues with AUTHORS who regularly use euphemisms so they don't have to use proper words for sexual organs. If she's writing a book about SEX, she should be able to use the word VAGINA. Not "love canal." It's not as bad as "vajayjay" (which should be stricken from the English language IMO) but still silly for an "author" to use.

Haha I know! When I read the sample of the book (I have an ereader) it looked pretty good but as I've gotten into it she uses a ton of euphemisms for everything! Its gotten pretty annoying and of course after the Alka Seltzer bit I was already put off.

This is the book. I'm really dissapointed I even bought it now but the sample really didn't sound that bad!

Sometimes you can't tell before you get the book. I just got a new book on sex toys it not only is really basic and has some incorrect information in it, it reads like a Cosmo article.

If it's safe to put directly into your mouth, it's generally safe to put directly onto your genitals.

Would you put an alka seltzer directly into your mouth?
Because I wouldn't.

Not sure if I would follow that rule of thumb, myself. Sugar tends to make vaginas unhappy, I hear.

Onto, not inside.

Sugar isn't a great thing to put in your vagina, that's true, but many people aren't sensitive. I was thinking more along the lines of hot sauce, listerine strips, horseradish sauce, etc.

Sugar leads to yeast and bacterial growth.

A soda water douche isn't exactly could for you though, either.

Sounds like a bad plan to me, especially to people with more sensitive or sickly (prone to yeasties, haha ) vaginas.

Never tried it. Sounds like a bad way to end a seemingly good night.
Also I'm sure it wouldn't work for allot of people who are sensitive.

*Whew* I'm kinky, but I would put none of those into my vagina. I know some people in the BDSM lifestyle who use IcyHot like clit arousal lube. Not my thing.

But, if it works for you.

Hot sauce, however, can actually cause chemical burns in some people's mouths and throats and stomachs, my guess is it would do worse to a vagina.

horseradish wow, you do have a great point though, i wonder how many have done something like that "just to see". My best friend was convinced to rub bengay on his balls once on a 5 dollar bet, and he will tell you its the worst 5 bucks he ever made, there definetly are some things that should be kept far from the genitals.
