Do You Use a Blow Dryer on Your Bits?

Years ago, I read a magazine article that suggested blow-drying your private area to prevent yeast infections. I thought it was silly, but my ob/gyn says that it can't hurt. Since we're all anonymous here, be honest: Do you use your blow dryer on your nether regions?

back when I had a muff puff I did sometimes just because it made my pubies a little softer but now that I'm bare, no. Sorry, I realize that is TMI but you did ask!

To quote Rod Tidwell in Jerry Maguire, "No thanks, I air dry." LOL.

I think there's some confusion. It's supposed to be moist INSIDE your vagina, but your labia should be dry to avoid bacterial growth.

yep, during a time when i kept having reaccuring yeast infections. everytime i took a shower, i'd dry the the lower bits too. it did help. you just turn the heat on low and not hold it close to dry the area. it helped for me.

I've done it a few times, cool button pressed of course. Only when I don't have the time to naturally dry off and I must get dressed in a hurry. :P

I doubt this will actually help with yeast infections. It IS supposed to be moist down there and you naturally have benign bacteria and fungi down there to prevent dangerous microorganisms from colonizing. Infections are caused by disruptions in the normal balance and chemical environment.

No and with my luck I'd badly burn myself. I would not want to explain that to a doctor.

Well, it IS hair - so I blow dry my pubic hair if I'm in a rush to get dressed. :D I guess I'm the only one here though.

I don't even use a blow dryer to dry the hair on my head.

a few swipes with a towel and some time to air dry would be good enough. im pretty accident prone, i'll probably get a third degree burn with a blowdryer down there.

A towel works just fine for me.

Ummm... isn't it supposed to be moist down there? I can't see how a bit of airdrying could hurt. I would be more worried about harsh soaps causing infections.

A blow-dryer is a bit much, but I do wait a while before putting on undies, so things can dry out. I think it's the folds of skin that can collect moisture, not your pubic hair; so it doesn't matter how "groomed" you are.

Blasting hot air up the hole or just on the mound? Either way, sounds faulty to me. Can't trust it.

Well, the last time that I wanted to give myself a nice sleek blowout "down there", I of course had to crack out the hair dryer. I finished the whole thing up with some styling oil and a straightening iron and voila! "The Rachel" style, replicated below my bikini line! All jokes aside, I've never heard of this, and it is kind of funny. I usually keep that area well...ahem...maintained, so I'm not sure I would ever need to - and like someone else said, you'd have to be really careful to avoid burning yourself! Ouchies! :-0
