Vaginal rejuvenation procedures aren’t safe

Warning issued by the FDA

Vaginal rejuvenation procedures are all the rage these days — yes, you heard right, I said vaginal rejuvenation!

There is such a thing! In what I could only imagine as a spa day for your vajayjay, women are now getting treatments done to make sure their woman members are tighter and younger-looking. It’s also been claimed to treat vaginal menopausal symptoms, dryness, or decreased sexual sensation. But, before you consider getting yourself this treatment, know that the US FDA has issued a warning against said procedures.

According to the FDA, vaginal rejuvenation usually involves energy-based devices such as lasers and radio frequencies. Though these same devices are approved for vaginal wart removal or cancer treatments, they aren’t approved for vaginal cosmetic procedures such as “rejuvenation” or anything of a similar nature.

“The safety and effectiveness of energy-based devices for treatment of these conditions has not been established,” the FDA furthers. In fact, they’ve already sent warning letters to a number of companies in the US offering these services. Though these treatments seem harmless, as a lot of cosmetic companies have claimed, the FDA clarifies that there are possible serious adverse events including chronic pain, burns, scarring, and even pain during intercourse. 

Not that there’s anything wrong with treating your hoo hoo, but based on these warnings alone, none of these procedures on the market offer proof as to their effectiveness and safety. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly not risking my lady garden — at least not until these treatments are approved. 😉

Samsung’s new LED light cover is the phone case we’ve always wanted

It lights up with different designs!



The newest Samsung flagships have just been announced and they’re all great, but there was one thing that really caught my eye — mostly because it was literally glowing.

Yes, that is the Samsung Galaxy S10 in my hands, and yes, those are actual LED lights on the case. Just so you can appreciate how pretty it is, here’s the LED case in action:

So what exactly is going on here?

Samsung’s LED light case looks and acts like a normal smartphone cover. It comes in blue and white and has a smooth exterior. It’s also pretty thin, considering, and it has a sturdy feel.

Once it’s attached, the LED cover app will appear and you’ll have different LED designs to choose from. You can go for the “Mood lighting” option which was shown above, or…

You can choose LED icons. Just some of my favorites include this beating heart… 💓💕💖💘💞

… and this adorable doggo. 🐶

There are honestly so many to choose from, I’m not even kidding.

It even does a smartphone camera timer countdown…


… and just like that I am sold!

Cheers, Samsung! Just when I thought I was over boring smartphone cases, you shove a shiny, sparkling one in my face and I am very, very convinced.
