A new Summer’s Eve campaign called “ID the V” tests your knowledge of your own vagina. According to the quiz nearly 70 percent of women are unable to identify the five major parts of their own genitals. Wow, that seems like a really high, really depressing percentage. Anyhow, the idea of promoting knowledge about the V, and the whole concept of “to know it is to love it,” is great. Summer’s Eve is also donating $1 to I Am That Girl, an organization dedicated to inspiring confidence in women and girls, for the first 25,000 women who get a perfect score on the quiz. Also, great.
The fact that the quiz is moderated by a talking hand that refers to itself as a vagina, BIZARRE. The only thing that would have been stranger is if they had drawn pubic hair on the hand. “Honestly, between you and me,” coos the talking hand/vagina, “I almost got one wrong on my first try and I’m a vagina!” Is it a trick question? Like, wait! That’s not a vagina! That’s a talking hand! Ten bonus points. If 70 percent of women don’t know their anus from their clitoris, isn’t anatomy this bait and switch going to confuse them further? For the record, I got 100 percent on the quiz and the talking hand/vagina congratulated me with a “Thatta girl!” which made me feel extremely uncomfortable. [Summer's Eve]
Stephen Colbert is always on the lookout for injustice against menfolk. And where do men suffer the most than in the field of genital cleaning products? Women have long enjoyed empowering cleaning agents marketed to their dirty vaginas. But the poor, dirty penis? Shamefully ignored. What nerve!
When Summer’s Eve douche products unveiled their new “Hail To The V” commercials last week, Colbert could not take it any longer. This injustice has to stop. Thank God men now have Fresh Pine Dick Scrub so that you, like your lady counterparts, can screw around with what nature intended. May you never feel embarrassed about that not-so-fresh feeling ever again. [Colbert Nation] Keep reading »
Yesterday, thanks to Summer’s Eve douching products, I learned that my vagina is “the most powerful thing on Earth and that samauri warriors and medieval jousting was all about fighting over a good, clean vagina. It turns out there are more douche-y douche commercials where that came from. Keep reading »
A reader tells us this Summer’s Eve douche commercial played before a screening of “Harry Potter” this weekend. And I never before knew that samauri warriors and medieval jousting was all about fighting over a good, clean vagina. What did the fair maidens of yore do to get that Lysol-fresh feeling?

Summer’s Eve, the brand of vaginal douche that apparently still exists, has a very, um, compelling advertisement in the latest issue of Women’s Day. Made to look like a piece of editorial content, the advertisement offers advice to women who are preparing to ask for a raise at work. But before you go marching into your boss’ office, better make sure your vagina smells good! Seriously. More, after the jump … Keep reading »
If you thought douching with Lysol was hard on your ladyparts, take a gander at what Walmart suggest you use: a pressure cleaner. Talk about rode hard and put away wet! On their Canadian website, the chain retailer (accidentally?) added the wrong product picture to their “Summer’s Eve Feminine Spray Ultra-Extra Strength.” While our girl junk can get a funk, we doubt the lady-bits of Canada really require an industrial powered spray.
