Reasons not to buy a Vagina Washing Rod: 1. Badly translated Korean catalogue entry. ("Purity, an essential device for cleanliness of women daily!") 2. "No, Mom! It's for hygeine! Really!" 3. Look, just take a second, and think about what it does. Now think about where it goes. Still interested?

But is it legal in Texas?

I think so. I'm just worried the feminists will demand a penis washing rod (for "equality" and all). ouch.

on a side note: i had no idea where a vagina washing rod was supposed to be used until i saw the diagrams. ;)

You guys mean its supposed to be used in the bathroom, right?

I'd like to get the opinion of a woman or two here: would that thing actually be comfortable? I mean, that's a lot of water being ejected into a very out of the way place...

Well, I won't say anything on the comfort topic, but this would definitely be MOST unhygienic (as are vaginal showers in general).
I hope nobody here needs explaining that the bacteria living in the vagina (as in the stomach, mouth, etc) are healthy and essential to the equilibrium of the place ; )
Excessive cleansing such as this will only open the door to serious infections... be warned, if you were even tempted!

And thus, a stupid post making fun of Korean vagina-washer peddlers teaches us all a valuable lesson in the end.

Ermm. So what exactly were you doing looking at vagina washing rods anyway, tweebiscuit?

Probably "tweebiscuit" saw it posted on FilePile.

Equilibrium be damned; what I think the guys were after was, nudge nudge, heh heh, how does it feel?

jeez... and they'd need to go on the Internet to get an answer to that?!

Some of them would.

Men can no more understand how this feels than they can understand how it feels to be pregnant, or how it feels to use sonar to view the world (another talent women have).

Somebody set us up the vagina

Well that would explain why my wife keeps going "PING!"

Too bad this was posted after Mother's Day. Looks like it makes a great gift.

You're all forgetting the most important part: it helps to prevent from strench.

Can you imagine a Beowulf cluster of these?

That device resembles the rice pasta in the Korean grocery store on 32nd St. in Manhattan.
