trend alert: vabbing

Posted by Annelotte Mul on

Vagina + dabbing = vabbing. This latest trend has been taking over TikTok and people swear by it when it comes to attracting a partner. 

But wat is it? When vabbing, you insert your finger into your vagina and 'dab' it onto your wrists and behind your ears. Now you might be wondering why someone would consider doing that, to explain this we need to look at the phenomenon called: pheromones.

Pheromones are chemical substances that are released outside of the body in fluids like urine and sweat. Pheromones are in a way a form of communication; it has the ability to attract other individuals for different reasons. 

Due to research, it is confirmed that pheromones do exist in animals, however it is very uncertain if they actually exist in humans. Studies in the 1970s did publish findings that so-called pheromones were involved in “period-syncing” — the idea that people who live together or spend a lot of time together start to menstruate at the same time.

Another theory is based around two closely related steroids — androstenone and androstadienone — they’re thought to have pheromonal effects, according to certain researchers. Both steroids have been found to be of positive influence on a female's mood: Androstadienone may also boost sexual desire and arousal in certain context for women. 

Pheromones are an incredibly interesting field. But right now, the evidence is too weak to state that humans have them. However, there’s a chance that rubbing vaginal secretions can entice someone who’s already intrigued by your natural scent.

If in any case you want to try vabbing to find out it it works for you, make sure to take the following points into account:

  • Make sure you are free of any STD's or other vaginal infections.
  • Wash your hands before, and after vabbing. 

And if all fails, perfume is always a nice touch ;)
