I Got My Vagina Steamed

August 22, 2019

– So it’s literally just you, the steam, and Black Jesus having a good old time. (groovy music) Hey, y’all. It’s Essence, and I’m about
to have my vagina steamed. I have been doing some
research around this and I’ve read a lot of reviews who say that it’s helped
with menstrual cramping. So I’ma give it a go to see if it’s really about that hype. I personally have bad menstrual cramps so I wanna know if it’s
gonna help with that. It’s fairly new, it’s been on the L.A. wellness scene since around like 2010, but it’s been practiced on
the Eastern wellness scene for literally like, centuries. Tia and Tamara have
tried it on national TV, Gwyneth Paltrow wrote a blog about it, so I figured, “I like Tia
and Tamara, I trust Gwyn, let me give this a try.” I’m kind of nervous,
cause steam is about to be all up in my hoo-hah, but, hopefully everything goes well. – [Mel] My name is Mel. I’m the owner of Bloomfield
Wax & Skin Care Center located in Bloomfield, New Jersey. – What happens with a V-steam? Am I gonna be lying down, a steam-blower going up my hoo-hah? Like, what exactly happens? – We go in the vaginal steam room, we consulate, we see what
herbs best suits you. I do the herbs according to your needs. We actually custom every herb
mixture to suit the client. – Well I’m really excited to try this out. We’re gonna go get steamed. – [Mel] Okay, let’s go. (heavy bass music) – This so feels so pampering. I’m just like so mad I
didn’t discover it quicker. The week before my period
and the week of my period there’s like some pain, discomfort. My hormone levels are like, out of whack. I cry at Cheerios commercials. I get on my own nerves. That’s how extra I am. I would be really interested to see how it reduces symptoms. I was like, a little bit nervous at first. You don’t wanna think like, steam, moisture, vagina. Ordinarily, if I just
heard those words together, I would just be like, yeast infection. It feels like if Jesus whispered a blessing into your vagina. Close your eyes and just let that sink in. Let that marinate, and that’s what this feels like. (whistle) Open, Sesame! I just want everybody
to be able to try this. V-steam Convention,
and we all get our pots and our plush robes with
Mimosas and just sit and escape the world and men, ’cause they
get on my damn nerves. I feel like a new woman. It’s been about two weeks
since I got my V-steam. Just one, the experience
itself is very pampering, but also, it really works. Half of every month I feel
like I’m actually on my cycle. I didn’t even realize
I didn’t feel the pain until maybe like a few
days before my period was supposed to come on because I just didn’t feel the symptoms that I normally feel. I had like no cramps at all. I was like, “Oh, it’s really probably because of the V-steam,” and that’s the only thing
that I did different this cycle versus any of my other cycles. I’m low-key a little bit shook. For me personally, I
really like the V-steam because it’s a more holistic treatment to menstrual discomfort and pain, and I’m just not really big on medicine, so I would absolutely do this again. Just something about
sitting on that little pot with the steam, with your little Mimosa, and just like, going to a happy place. I actually wish I was
sitting on one right now. I wish I had one at my desk. I want one for my home. But I don’t think I can, ’cause I’m not certified. In anything.

    In Malaysia especially in malay culture, vagina steamed is a very normal practice.. its called “bertangas”.. Usually women who had given birth will do this (not pregnant women also can do it) it claimed to tighten the vagina muscle, cleanse the unwanted blood after birth (after period), make the vagina feel fresh & a lot of health benefits too 😊

  • Reply Orson Hells September 11, 2018 at 11:51 pm

    This video is reprehensible. Essence says that she did research, but it seems like the extent of that was the "reviews" she mentioned, from the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow (whose fake health business recently settled out of court for $145K for lying about the benefits of inserting "energy crystals" into the vagina). That's not research. Had she looked to actual tests of the procedure's efficacy, she would be well aware of the fact that there is absolutely no evidence that vaginal steaming helps with any of the afflictions listed in the video. In some cases you get the opposite; it would be impossible for infections to be prevented by steaming a person's vagina (how would that possibly occur?), but the process could cause infections. Not to mention the dangers of putting steam to a person's genitals. Jesus Christ. Buzzfeed is promoting this fake medicine to women (it's in the Women's Health playlist) which will at best be an overpriced placebo and at worst a real danger. It's unconscionable.
