How To Keep Your Penis or Vagina Clean and Healthy?

Keeping your private parts clean and well-groomed gives you a fresh feeling that will please both you and your partner. People are often embarrassed to speak to anyone about any problems or questions they may have about their genitals. It is important for both men and women to learn about their genitals, ask questions, and practice good hygiene in order to maintain health.


For Women


1) Trim the hedges

If you’re going to just clean things up a bit, now is the time to do it.

  • If you have hair clippers, set it to a depth that suits you—12 to 1 inch (1.3 to 2.5 cm) suits a lot of people. Trim carefully for a clean look.
  • No clippers? Use a pair of sharp scissors, and snip away evenly to a length that suits you.
  • If you’re going under the blade, soak in the bath for a bit to soften the skin and hair up. Things will go a lot more smoothly, and you will have a much more pleasant experience.
  • Some people have taken to shaving their pubic hair into a variety of interesting shapes and patterns. If you and your partner favour this look, go for it!
    • Note that when you shave, within a couple days it could get really itchy. Apply moisturising lotion to minimise discomfort.

2) Wash daily

Cleanse and rinse the pubic region thoroughly, taking care to wash the outside of your pubic mound with soap.

Don’t use soap on your labia or in your vagina—this can lead to irritation and infections


3) Rinse thoroughly, and dry well

You want to wash away soapy residue, both to get rid of the perfumed scent, and to inhibit bacterial growth of the unpleasant kind.


4) On period? Change your pad regularly, or wear a Menstrual Cup.

Clean and rinse your pubic area after removal, and before replacement.


5) Wear fresh undies

Keep your clean, unused undergarments in a cool, dry place, and care for them well—make sure you dry them as soon as you wash them. Otherwise, you risk your clothes smelling worse than you (did).


 


For Men


1) Groom yourself

The 70s are over, and untrimmed pubic bushes are either a sign that you are stuck in the past, or just don’t care. Do this before you shower, so that all the trimmings are washed away

  • If you have hair clippers, set it to a depth that suits you—12 to 1 inch (1.3 to 2.5 cm) suits a lot of people. Trim carefully all the way around and under for a clean look.
  • No clippers? Use a pair of sharp scissors, and snip away evenly to a length that suits you.
  • Some people have taken to shaving the hair down there.
    • Soak in a bathtub for a bit to soften the hair up. It’ll make it a lot easier to shave.
    • Trim with scissors before lathering up the shaving cream and pointing sharp objects at your privates.
    • Be careful when shaving!
    • Note that when you shave, within a couple days it could get really itchy. If you’re scheduled to give a big presentation to the board then, you might want to think twice, and save the shave till after the meeting. Alternately, use an unscented moisturizing lotion to minimize the itch.

2) Soap it up

When you shower, or bathe, don’t go light on the soap when you wash your crotch.

  • If you’re circumcised, taking care of your penis is pretty straightforward. Soap it up, rinse it off.
  • If you’re uncut, clean under the foreskin. Neglecting this will cause a buildup of a whitish substance with the oddly unpleasant name of smegma. It’s harmless, but not something you want sticking around.
  • Scrub gently from tip to tail, and all the parts in between.

3) Rinse thoroughly

Who needs soapy buildup, or a soapy smell? For a lot of people, it can be just as unpleasant to smell perfumed soap as eau de nether.

  • Some people enjoy a natural (i.e., clean but not overly fragrant) smell from their partner. When in doubt, it’s a good idea to favour neutral over perfumed.

4) Package the package properly

Wear a fresh pair of underwear daily.

  • Keep your clean, unused undergarments in a cool, dry place. Whether you prefer boxers or briefs, make sure you dry them as soon as you wash them. Otherwise, you risk your clothes smelling worse than you (did).
