The New Trend: Vajazzling

If you thought you had seen it all, you ain’t seen nothing yet. The newest trend in fashion these days apparently is vajazzling.

What is Vajazzling ?

According to Urban Dictionary, vajazzling is defined as:

“The act of applying glitter and jewels to a woman’s nether regions for aesthetic purposes”

That seems pretty straightforward, if not a bit bizarre.  But who am I to judge?  Most of us dress up our faces every day before leaving the house, so I guess there is no difference between makeup on your face or vagina.

Why Vajazzle?

So why would a woman want to put stuff on her private areas?  The better question is: Why not?  Seriously, if the woman enjoys the process and how she looks after adorning her vaginal area with heaven knows what, what is the harm?  As long as she isn’t causing harm to herself in any way, there is literally no reason she shouldn’t jazz up her vagina.  We all know that sex lives can get boring and repetitive over time and there are lots of ways to overcome that boredom.  This is just one more tool in the chest so to speak.

Some might call this vanity.  I call it fun.  It’s not like women are going to glitter up their vagina everyday, more likely for a special occasion like a hot date with the boyfriend, an anniversary or something like that.  What one of us women hasn’t donned some frilly lingerie to excite their man?  Donning some vaginal adornments shouldn’t be any different.

How did this trend start?

Many spas started adding the option of vajazzling to their menu as a way to make more business off the ever growing brazilian waxing trend.  But what really kicked it off was Jennifer Love Hewitt coming out on national TV talking about spicing up her vagina with Swarovski crystals.  This interview was way back in 2010 and the vajazzle trend seems to be growing stronger every years.  Figure that.

How to Vajazzle

Clearly if you want to give it a try you will want to make sure your vajayjay is hairless.  Waxing is the best option since you will remain hairless for much longer than shaving.  So get out the waxing kit or hit your favorite spa first and get yourself cleaned up down their.  Once you’ve done that, you can either get the spa to apply your vadecorations (that’s a new word I just made up) or choose to do it yourself.  If you choose the home method, make sure that the kit that you purchase includes a good hypoallergenic glue that is meant to be applied to the skin.  Don’t grab that bottle of crazy glue out of the junk drawer!

One other thing to remember – waxing your skin will often leave a bit of wax residue in the pores of your skin so you will want to thoroughly clean the area the crystals will be applied to first. Otherwise there’s a good chance that you’ll find all those pretty crystals sitting in the bottom of your panties.

Health Concerns

Maybe I’ve convinced you that vajazzling is the next greatest thing to spice up your love life.  Or maybe I’ve convinced you that I’m insane.  Either way, if you are considering going down this road, make sure you are safe about it.  Remember that your vagina is a delicate piece of equipment and you don’t want to do anything to mess with that.  There are reports like this one from Independent that some of these products can lead to medical issues with your lady parts.  Be smart about what you do and always remember where you are applying this stuff.  Getting a vaginal infection just isn’t worth it.

In my books, I’d stick with the crystals since this seems to be a much safer way to go.

What else you can do

Since you are going to all this trouble to wax and beautify your intimate areas, you can always take it one step further and consider vaginal bleaching.  You can read more about vaginal whitening at vaginalbleaching.org if you are interested.  It’s not for everyone, just like vajazzling but some women find they don’t like the looks of their labia once the pubic hair has been removed.  Surprisingly, this is another growing trend in body maintenance for women.  Maybe I’ll talk more about the subject in a future article.

Have fun!

Above all else, have fun with your adventure.  Surprise your spouse or significant other; don’t let on what you are doing!  Make the unveiling even more fun by putting on some nice lingerie and maybe even do a sensual dance for them.  Make an evening of it and enjoy putting on a show for your lover.  I’m sure that they will love it just as much as you have enjoyed doing it.
