I’ve agreed to a little soap
I finally bought a very gentle, all-natural soap that I put just on the outside of the area. My boyfriend and I actually have a fun little dynamic now when I announce when I’m cleaning the area, and even ask him if he’d like to come get a sniff. He thinks that’s pretty cute, and we’re back to having a lot of sex. (Well, not a lot—we’re still pretty busy. But my smelly vagina isn’t getting in the way).
