When it first happened, I didn’t want to go near my boyfriend for weeks. I’d awkwardly make jokes about it to try to ease the situation, but my boyfriend didn’t feel like he was allowed to laugh. I wouldn’t change in front of him, for fear that I hadn’t gotten things under control. What am I talking about? I’m talking about the time my boyfriend told me my vagina smelled. Yup—that happened. Can you imagine the horror? It’s pretty hard to feel sexy after that, but you have to find some way to persist. If you’ve been through this terrifying experience yourself, then maybe you’ll take some comfort in knowing you’re not alone. Or at least maybe my story will make you laugh. Hold onto your va-jay-jay. Here is the terrifying but true story of the time my boyfriend told me my vagina smelled.
