The Intimate Grooming market seems to be booming, based on the success of a product line known as “SweetSpot.” I’ve noticed these products at beauty supply shops over the last year, and now they are hard to ignore. My friend Rebekkah and I were fascinated recently by an entire shelf of this crap, and I’m ashamed to admit that we shrieked like ten year old girls hearing the word Tampax for the first time.
Eeeooow! This shit is not only ridiculous, it comes in Basil Grapefruit and Geranium Lavender. They want you to Celebrate “That time of the month” by wiping, misting and washing your special place, Down There.
Is that celebrating, or is it obliterating?
I really enjoyed the SweetSpot website, with its wacky euphemisms and made-up words like ‘sweetification.’ They also throw in ‘self-love’ for those women who can hear the word ‘pleasure’ used as a verb without wanting to throw up.
Ladies, do you want your man’s Package to smell like grapefruit and basil? How about oil and vinegar? Let me answer for you: No.
Even though I find the whole idea of feminine grooming to be absurd and insulting, I’m planning to give the On-the-go Wipettes as Christmas gifts, because laughter is the best medicine, every day of the month!
