A little levity: perineum sunning is a thing.

Promoted by wellness gurus is the biggest thing since crystals: perineum sunning. That’s right, as you finish your morning yoga practice, shimmy off those pants and undies, spread your legs and point your yoni at the sun.

There’s only one little problem with this. Sun exposure can depress your immune system and that can have unintended consequences:

“Sunlight is a relatively common trigger for HSV-1, or oral herpes. Because the genitals are rarely exposed to sunlight, it’s not a common trigger for genital herpes. … Simply put, spending more time in the sun can affect your immune system and potentially trigger oral herpes outbreaks.”

Yes, your genitals are rarely exposed to sunlight so normally this isn’t an issue. But once a fitness trend like this becomes infectious, and becomes especially popular with those of us with secret exhibitionist tendencies, outbreaks might happen.

As BiFF says: “Somewhere an influencer’s mellow has been harshed.”

  1. Riverdaughter, have you rehabilitated yourself? 😛

  2. Let me guess-Gwyneth Paltrow’s idea?

  3. Not personally having a yoni, I’d find this a little difficult to do. I’d also be a bit worried about frostbite, since we have a couple of feet of Colorado sunshine on the ground right now.

  4. But RD, all our chakram’s are rather yonical. A little sun wouldn’t hurt.
