When Ms. Erykah Badu speaks generally you listen. The Twitterverse was all ears when the 43-year-old singer decided to “reluctantly” tweet some of her secret sex and health tips.
“Ladies..For a SWEET vagina I Drink raw cranberries often. Now the secrets out. (Reluctantly)...ALSO promotes healthy,strong WOMB &bladder,” Badu tweeted to her more than 1 million followers.
Continuing her wealth of knowledge sharing, Badu also left a few tips for the fellas.
“IMPORTANT Note to MEN: Women really don't dig guys who give it up too easy. Respect yourself. Make us wait. :-b.”
While Badu’s advice was certainly fascinating, just how much of what she said is accurate?
Turns out, the singer is onto something.
While the jury is still out on whether or not cranberries will make your vagina “sweet” (generally online bloggers agree), they do play a major role in the overall health of the female anatomy. In fact, cranberries (unsweetened) have been shown to reduce the risk of a urinary tract infection. Cranberry juice can also (along with yogurt) potentially help prevent yeast infections and aid in their treatment.
As for whether women who prefer their men to wait it out a little longer before “giving up,” we’ll leave that up to one’s discretion.
