Embrace Pangaea, a "holistic company that provides high-quality herbal detoxes and information to educate clients about natural living" wants you to buy its Herbal Womb Detox Pearls at costs ranging from $85 and $480 and stuff them up your vagina to flush out "toxins" and, depending on which ball you buy, to promote "vaginal tightening" by "tightening the womb" after which your "vaginal canal will shrink."
None of this will happen.
But you will possibly get toxic shock syndrome and die. There is nothing "natural" or "holistic" about filling your vagina with decaying plant-matter.

Tamieka Atkinson, the owner of Embrace Pangaea, told the Independent: "Our product is not a drug by any means, and we make no claims of curing, diagnosing, or treating disease.
"Embrace Pangaea is a holistic company that provides high-quality herbal detoxes and information to educate clients about natural living.
"Our Herbal Womb Detox Pearls is simply a natural herbal alternative that women can make a conscious and informed decision in using. With all our clients, we do advise them that we are not medical professionals, and that they should seek assistance from their doctor.
"As for our products doing more harm than good, there are various women that received positive benefits from using our product."

The notion of two people sleeping in the same bed always inspires romantic visions of love and intimacy. However, most quickly realize that the romance of sleeping together is often quickly replaced by the realities of the act. One partner snores. The other talks in their sleep. One grinds their teeth. The other hogs the […]
