I'm sorry, what?
The whole thing is called vabbing: a combination of the words Vagina and Dabbing ... and yes, it's applied exactly as it sounds. To date, the hashtag #VabbingPerfume and #VabbingTikTok have so far garnered more than 15 million views on the TikTok platform alone. Obviously, this trend is picking up traction. But, how does it actually work?
Here's a little... tutorial:
It's fairly easy, as it turns out: gather your vaginal secretions just enough for you to dab it on the areas where you'd typically apply your perfume- under your ears, your wrists, the insides of your elbows... etc. The pheromones said to be emitted from your genital fluids will most likely attract a potential romantic or sexual partner or simply put: boost your sexual attraction off the roof.
It goes without saying that if you're on your period of currently suffering from vaginal infections, it's probably not the best idea to practise vabbing.
The question is: is it legit?
Well, there's no scientific evidence that suggest pheromone-powered scents actually work on humans, according to Tristram Wyatt, an evolutionary biologist who specialises in various animals' scents and pheromones.
However, the very act itself could uplift confidence in women who practice it, much like a placebo effect. In other words, there's no apparent harm in vabbing and it is completely up to an individual whether they'd adopt it into their routine or not .
