How do women who mud wrestle or take regular mud baths (esp. naked, say at a spa) avoid getting mud in their, er,
Would tampons be useful in preventing such an occurrence? Or is that even necessary?
And if mud is
allowed into the vagina or anus, does that lead to an increased incidence of infection (whether by yeast or bacteria)? How would one go about (or, ladies, how have you gone about) preventing such resultant infections? And do spas have problems with the transmission of such infections in their mud baths?
I've found an abstract from a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association
that found a greater incidence of pustular follicular dermatitis outbreaks among mud-wrestling college students (no joke) at the University of Washington in Seattle—but that doesn't speak to the question of vaginal, anal or urethral irritation stemming from prolonged mud exposure.
(And yes, this is a serious question, I promise—the topic came up during a conversation I was party to a while back about, well, vaginal irritation/infections. Fun stuff, huh?)
