FUN FACT: THE VAGINA IS TEN TIMES CLEANER THAN THE MOUTH

FUN FACT: THE VAGINA IS TEN TIMES CLEANER THAN THE MOUTH

The vagina and your mouth (oral cavity), which is cleaner? The majority will vote for the latter for various reasons, but that is wrong. Did you know that one single french kiss or deep kiss lasting 10 seconds can transmit up to 80 million germs? Another surprising fact is that partners who kiss each other at least nine times a day share a similar colony of oral bacteria.

In this article, we discuss how the vagina is ten times cleaner than the mouth. 

REASONS WHY THE VAGINA IS 10X CLEANER THAN THE MOUTH.

1. Unlike the mouth, the vagina is self-cleansing—It cleans itself naturally by producing mucus—a slippery, watery, or gel-like fluid which acts as a filter for germs, dust, and other allergens.

2. The vagina is made up of good bacteria called lactobacilli that neutralize and constantly fight infections. As a result, vaginal discharge is not dirty and infectious.

3. The truth is that there is an average of 100 million bacteria per milliliter of saliva in your mouth. Some are good bacteria (normal bacteria flora), and some are bad. Good oral bacteria like Actinomyces, Streptococcus, and Fusobacterium help to protect the mouth from all sorts of infections and irritants, but unfortunately, that alone is not enough. The internal conditions of the mouth are not as stable as that of the vagina. It is easily affected by external factors such as temperature, humidity, oxygenation, nutrition, and hygiene.

4. The mouth comes in contact with more bacteria than the vagina. Think about this— How many times a day do you introduce a foreign material into your mouth, be it food, drink, dick, or kiss?. All these external materials contain some level of dirt or germs, even with the highest level of caution. Everyone is guilty of this because these foreign items are rarely sterile.

NOTE

Both the mouth and vagina are viable entry portals for disease-causing organisms.

Some examples of germs that can be transmitted from person to person through kissing include;
  • Herpes simplex virus
  • Hepatitis B virus
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes oral warts
  • Epstein-Barr virus, which causes Glandular fever
  • Influenza, which causes colds 
  • Tooth decaying bacteria
  • Meningococcal bacteria
  • Coronaviruses
  • Treponema pallidum, which causes syphilis 
Don’t get me wrong— Just like French kissing, many diseases can be vaginally transmitted, including 
  • Gonorrhea
  • Genital herpes
  • Cervical cancer
  • Chlamydia
  • Yeast infections
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Genital warts

TIPS TO CARE FOR THE MOUTH

  1. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth before bed and after breakfast. 
  2. Limit Sugary and acidic drinks.
  3. Drink enough water every day.
  4. Visit your dentist at least twice each year.
  5. Avoid smoking.
  6. Maintain a healthy and balanced diet.
  7. Replace your toothbrush at least every three months

Here are some natural foods that are great for vaginal health and items you should never place inside your vagina (for a healthy and enjoyable sex life).


TAKEAWAY

Do you still think it's better to kiss on the mouth than to go down on her? I doubt that. It's time to let go of the thought that the vagina is not hygienic enough for you to go down on—it's cleaner than the mouth.
