Gwyneth Paltrow Still Loves Getting Her Vagina Steamed
Gwyneth Paltrow made headlines last year when she recommended that all women should try vagina-steaming on her lifestyle blog, Goop. While some of Paltrow’s recommendations have since backfired on her (remember the time she tried living on $29 a week like a “common” person and failed?), she still thinks treating your vajayjay to a steam bath is the beat thing ever.
“Try it!” Paltrow tells The Cut. ” The first time I tried v-steaming, I was like, This is insane. My friend Ben brought me and I was like, ‘You are out of your fucking mind. What is this?’ But then by the end of it I was like, ‘This is so great.’ Then I start to do research, and it’s been in Korean medicine for thousands of years and there are real healing properties.”
She adds, referring to the amount of traffic the controversial article was bringing to Goop, “If I find benefit to it and it’s getting a lot of page views, it’s a win-win.”
According to Paltrow, who is now an advocate of clean beauty and using products without any toxins or chemicals, she loves trying out things that would raise eyebrows. Whether it be organic lubes or $15,000 dildos, she’s all for exploring whatever is out there on the market.
“I’ve always been interested in alternative ways of achieving this elusive wellness. I’ve been very experimental and I’ve tried all kinds of modalities, diets, and juices. I kind of like being the guinea pig for it all,” she says.
“I have Goop.com, and we’ve sort of taken on the responsibility of trying all that stuff. And like I said, I actually really like being the guinea pig. Some of my other girls are guinea pigs for stuff, too, but I enjoy trying things,” she continues. “I don’t necessarily endorse all of them, but I like to try them and write about them. It makes for really good content.”
Whatever gets those clicks, right?
