Jamu Stick Promises to Remove Calluses From Vaginal Wall

Jamu Stick Promises to Remove Calluses From Vaginal Wall March 7, 2019

A new feminine hygiene product has taken over social media and has many women talking about “exfoliating” their vaginas. Jamu Stick promises to tighten, exfoliate, and cleanse the vaginal wall. Experts say the stick is dangerous and exfoliating the vaginal lining is unnecessary.

Jamu Stick looks like a long dildo and contains herbs that will magically strengthen muscles, reduce odor, and remove calluses inside the vagina.

According to the website, the ingredients in the stick will fix all the issues women deal with after having a child.

Weak muscles?

No, Problem! The Jamu Stick says that by inserting the product into the vagina, the herbs contained inside will tighten and tone the muscles without any exercise.

Foul Smell?

No way! Jamu Stick somehow magically balances all the PH in the vagina. After using the product, women will have a fresh, flower smelling cooch that will keep all their lovers happy.

Painful Callouses?

Don’t worry! The Jamu Stick will remove all the dead skin and keep the vaginal wall fresh and clean.

The website says that all of this can be accomplished by putting the stick inside the vagina for 30 seconds to 1 minute at a time. After each treatment, the vag is supposed to be tighter, cleaner, and free of dead skin. Not only can women get these fantastic benefits, but the product is affordable. A Jamu Stick retails for $24-$28 per stick.

Obviously, none of the claims made by the vendor are substantiated by scientific studies. In fact, the FDA does not regulate the product and is not considered safe for use. However, none of that matters to Jamu Original. The site doesn’t even include a warning that the FDA does not approve the product.

The maker of Jamu Stick, Ni Gusti Ayu Putu Eka Widiastuti, lives in Indonesia. Eka says she “studied” natural products and earned a degree as a “natural specialist.” She also credits her expertise on feminine hygiene to lessons she learned from her mother.

However, Jamu Stick is yet another product that women should not be putting up in their vagina. Vaginal exfoliation is not necessary. Moreover, by putting products like Jamu Stick in the vagina, women can throw off their natural Ph balance. Proper Ph balance is necessary to prevent yeast and bacterial infections.

This should go without saying, but a dildo herb stick is not going to strengthen the muscles of the vagina. Exercises called Kegels can help strengthen weakened vaginal muscles.

If you are experiencing painful discharge, foul-smelling order, or issues with muscle control, always consult your doctor. Painful discharge and foul-smelling odors can be a sign of an infection.

Experts do not recommend using any products inside the vagina. Cleaning the vagina, or douching, can lead to several problems including infections, trouble getting pregnant, and the contraction of sexually transmitted illnesses.

Finally, even though your social media is blowing up with images of the Jamu Stick, please do not try these products at home. Always remember that your oven is self-cleaning.

    WTF? Vaginas don’t get callouses.

  • frostysnowman

    I thought for sure this was going to be a Goop thing. I guess I need to give Gwyneth a little more time to catch up.

  • Chris Hogue

    They need to come up with a backdoor version. I’d like my farts to be slightly less offensive.

  • Shan

    Does it at least vibrate?

    This product is more sexist bullshit. It promotes the idea that vaginas are dirty/icky and not tight enough for your man. Was this product made up by a cis man? Vaginas don’t have callouses! WTF! It’s not just disgustingly sexist- it’s bizarre. Why? Just why?

  • larry parker

    I have a holistic cranial cushion for sale. Only 19.95. It’s pH balanced and harmonically tuned.

  • larry parker

    Just insert the other end. ; )

  • Shan

    I guess there are women out there having so much sex they somehow are. Since these are women who figured out how to have sex more than twenty-four/seven/365 via time dilation, that can’t be a big market.

  • kenofken

    Because our country is awash in uneducated fools who don’t know the difference between keratinized and non-keratinized stratified squamous cell epithelium.

  • kilda

    if you have calluses in your vagina you are definitely doing something wrong.

  • Cozmo the Magician

    Sure, it vibrates with the natural holistic harmonies in balance with your g-spot and woo-woo. Look out Deepak, I’m gunning for you (:

    Everyday somebody posts an article here on patheos NR and I just assume it is Laughing in Disbelief branching out into new territory. This world is just getting more and more weird every day.

    It’s the “tight” part that really made it clear to me what this was. I’ve seen a few too many cases (not in person, but still) of men insulting women by saying that they aren’t “tight” enough. Usually that is used as evidence that they’re sluts.

    And, yeah, the callouses part threw me for a loop.

  • Nomad

    Does the woman who invented this think that women play violins with their vaginas or something? That was my first thought when I read that it was supposed to deal with callouses.

  • kenofken

    I don’t know about that. I know, though, deep down, that if I waved enough money around in Thailand, someone would find me just such a musician and probably a whole string quartet played that way, expertly! 🙂

  • Nomad

    I have nobody to blame but myself, but I’m trying to picture just that now.

  • Absolutely! it’s sexist as all get up

  • Raging Bee

    Let’s just say it would take a LOT of CGI to make a porn movie out of that…

  • Raging Bee

    I had the same question: how does a woman get callouses in her vagina in the first place? Inadequate lubrication? There’s a readily-available solution to that, and it’s a lot cheaper than that silly little stick.

    Not if you’re doing it right, they don’t.

  • WallofSleep

    Do you have one that comes in the shape of a hemorrhoid donut? You know, for the people that think vaginal walls can build up callouses.


  • larry parker

    Still in development. Can’t get chakra quite right.

  • Funny how men never stop to consider maybe it’s not that she’s loose, but he’s a, erm, a “short-tail”…

  • Raging Bee

    It might, if you plug it into a PV charger and use it outdoors…

  • Raging Bee

    Um…how does she not know there’s a much more pleasant way to erase all traces of a previous partner?

  • Raging Bee

    Who is she, and what movie is that from?

  • Raging Bee

    You mean, like, sticking the wrong sort of organic magical healing sticks into it?

  • WallofSleep

    Your guess is as good as mine.

  • I feel like I’m lagging behind somehow…

  • Well, I see you found a pic of my ex…

  • Raging Bee

    She’ll catch up soon enough — with another kind of goop that (allegedly) heals all the damage done by this herbal-dildo-stick! Don’t ever say there’s no checks and balances in the alt-med biz!

    I’ve started following Dr. Jen Gunter on twitter and she had choice things to say about the jamu sticks, as well as products sold by GOOP.
