Here's a trend that could take cunnilingus to new heights. Real talk.

So, how many of y'all were sad when the Vine app came to a close a few years back? Shoot, I can't tell that it's gone because it seems like everyone and their grandma is on, what I personally consider to be the "new Vine"—TikTok. Lawd, the stuff that folks put on there, I honestly don't have the time or mental capacity to even touch on how buck some of the content can get! Today, I'll just address a particular set of videos that went viral at the top of this year; ones that were a literal shout-out to vaginal moisturizing melts (you can check out one of 'em here). And just what the heck are those? Let me give you a quick rundown, OK?

What Exactly Is a Vaginal Moisturizing Melt?

For the most part, a vaginal moisturizing melt is another way to say vaginal suppository. If you've never used a suppository before, they are pretty popular when it comes to things like treating a yeast infection. That's because, if you want to avoid all of the messiness that can come with putting a medicinal cream into your vagina, a suppository is a like a small, solid, oil-based tube that you can insert into your vagina that slowly melts over time (it's usually best to use a suppository at night to avoid a ton of leaking). Suppositories are cool because they're a convenient way to get medication into your system faster, again, without creating a lot of mess in the process. Well, a vaginal moisturizing melt is also a suppository; only, it's not for medicinal purposes. It's actually to make your va-jay-jay smell and taste—I don't wanna say "better"; let's go with "different".

The company that the TikTok-ers actually shouted out is Femallay. While they carry all kinds of vaginal goodies including menstrual cups and wellness teas, something else that they've got on tap are vaginal suppositories—ones that come in flavors like (chile) blueberry, peach, wild cherry, pineapple and chocolate. If you just read that and said to yourself, "Does this mean what I think it means?", my response to you is, "1000 percent". These suppositories are specifically designed to relieve vaginal dryness, promote vaginal elasticity and yes—cause your vagina to literally smell and taste like the flavor that you chose.
And just how much can you trust this almost-too-good-to-be-true product? Well, it's marketed to be 100 percent organic with ingredients like cocoa butter, Vitamin E, apricot kernel oil, nut butter, jojoba seed oil and organic flavor oil in it. So yeah, if you're looking for a way to bring more lube into your life while also making "kisses down low" extra sweet for your partner, a vaginal moisturizing melt may be just what you've been looking for.

Are Vaginal Moisturizing Suppository Melts Safe?

OK, before you pull out your credit or debit card so that you can make a purchase, let me make sure that I cover all of the bases on this. For starters, how healthy are vaginal moisturizing melts and is Femallay safe? Those are excellent questions. When it comes to Femallay specifically, because they do profess to be organic—this includes being soy, gluten, hormone, glycerin and paraben-free—they aren't harmful. That's great news. At the same time, vaginas are extremely sensitive. For instance, the pH balance of one is slightly on the acidic side of between 3.8-4.5. Whenever something throws the balance off—douching, too much bacteria, not enough probiotics in our system, semen, antibiotics, etc.—that can lead to a vaginal infection of some sort.

That said, another great thing about Femallay is its suppositories are designed to maintain a pH level of "4". Still, it's never a bad idea to know what the pH level of your vagina is (there are at-home tests that you can purchase at an affordable price) and it can also never hurt to run the desire to put a vaginal moisturizing melt into your body by your doctor, just to see if there are any concerns that they might have.

So, what's my take on them? I mean, as someone who's used chocolate syrup, honey and even popsicles myself (not in my vagina but on my vulva), I personally say, "If you're down, go for it!"

Only, I do think it should go on record that while it's cool that there's something out in the world that can make your vagina taste like a peach (cue Novel's "Peach"), I tend to see this neat little invention, kind of like I do make-up. While it's nice to have the option, it shouldn't be something that we feel like we can't live without. Because really, y'all—if the Most High wanted us to taste like a Hershey's kiss or pina colada, he definitely could've made that happen. He didn't. So, your natural scent and taste are just fine.

Therefore, please make sure that you're at peace with knowing that and that your partner doesn't pressure you to change your mind. Yet with that PSA out of the way, something that can make you wetter and sweeter, that is au naturale too? At the very least, it's the kind of thing that you can say that you tried and either you and yours liked it or—you didn't.

One more thing. If you're wondering if Femallay is the only company that makes (flavored) vaginal moisturizing melts, I highly doubt it. However, the research that I did on that one—research that included hot takes from medical professionals—is the only brand that I'm comfortable referring on this platform. But if you happen upon some others, please drop the names in the comments.

Until then, perhaps this was your something new for the day. A way to spice things up a bit by making your vagina a little sweeter. How sexy—and orgasm-triggering—is that?

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
