As a mom blogger, I get a lot of email pitches to review or feature products on my sites. Occasionally, I receive one that makes me do a spit-take into my morning coffee. Here's one of them:
I thought you’d benefit from reviewing the new and only FDA approved douche, WaterWorks, on 50-Something Moms.
This email only gets better:
While douching may be a sensitive topic to talk about, I know that we fellow mommy bloggers are fearless when it comes to hot issues like our vaginas. WaterWorks is the first and only patented and FDA-cleared douching alternative that harnesses the cleansing power of ordinary tap water and medical grade stainless steel into one remarkable odor-eliminating product. WaterWorks is a safe and effective vaginal cleansing system clinically proven through six years of research to eliminate feminine odors.
I'll spare you all the rest. It concludes with the following:
This would be a hot topic to feature on your website and would get a lot
of reader traffic and comments. Please feel free to contact me for one
to try and I'll have them ship it to you to review.
I'm not sure I want the traffic and comments from people who are searching the word "douche," but I suppose it's too late now. If you are reading this after such a search, you will find everything you need to know about the product here. The rest of you can see my latest post on parenting over at 50-Something Moms.
