Stressed Out? Try Steaming Your Vagina
Vaginal steaming may reduce stress and increase fertility -- or not

V-steams are not much different than regular facial steams aimed at providing relief to stressed out bodies. Okay, they're a lot different because you're steaming your ladyparts, but the system is somewhat the same: a large pot of boiling water infused with herbs. Clients are given ponchos or large skirts to wear while they squat over the pot and allow the steam to work its magic. (You can even buy the herbs off Etsy and do-it-yourself at home!)

Some users report a strong detoxifying effect and increased fertility, while others say that it's all a load of bunk. But science is kinda skeptical. "I just don't understand physiologically how putting steam up the vagina is going to change your fertility or help you relieve stress," said Dr. Laura Riley. Either way, we're pretty sure it'll be on the menu of dozens more NYC and LA spas pretty soon. [Source]
