Kourtney Kardashian’s gummies for vaginal odour and taste are causing quite a stir
Many have been very vocal on social media about their distaste for Kourtney Kardashian’s latest venture: vaginal health gummies.
The Lemme Purr products have received a lot of backlash for its sexist targeting on women’s genitalia by enhancing their scent and flavour.
“Your… she’s going to love this… Meet Lemme Purr: our new vaginal health gummy! Vaginal health is such an important part of a woman’s overall well-being (and not talked about enough), which is why we’re so excited to launch this! Give your vagina the sweet pleasure it deserves (and make it a sweet treat). You know what they say… you are what you eat,” Kardashians took to Instagram to shed some light on the matter.
What kind of gummies Kourtney Kardashian have?
Throughout, the use of vitamin supplements has attained widespread acceptance. Supplementing with vitamins is often seen as a way to enhance health and make up for a poor diet.
Vitamins in the form of gummies are chewable vitamins that resemble candy in both texture and flavour.
It’s the same thing the Kardashians have just released, except geared at females and privates.
Kardashian’s wellness website, Poosh, advertises Lemme Purr as a “tasty little treat in the form of a jelly bean with some potent characteristics”.
Website claims it protects against bacterial vaginosis-caused UTIs thanks to a combination of vitamin C and a stable version of Bacillus coagulans SNZ 1969.
Kourtney Kardashian says the vitamin gummies’ pineapple extract makes them even tastier.
Yet, she has received some criticism. According to obstetrician and gynaecologist Carolyn Moyers, quoted by BuzzFeed, “I like that we bring attention to vaginal health, but the idea that your vagina is dirty and must smell like a flower or taste like a bakery is ridiculous,”
She went on to explain: “The vagina is actually self-cleaning. It distorts our body image and makes women feel that something is wrong with them; it perpetuates this idea that we are broken and need to fix our bodies to be attractive.”
