Male Doctor Invents Labia Lipstick Designed To Glue Vagina Lips

Update Date: Feb 23, 2017 08:49 AM EST

The Kansas-based chiropractor has invented a genital glue that can be applied to the labia minora to shut menstrual flow. Daniel Dopps claims the Mensez Adhesive Vaginal Lipsticks are a revolutionary new natural approach to feminine hygiene.

Dopps describes his handiwork as a natural combination of amino acids and oils that is designed to be applied to the labia minora (the smaller inner folds of the vagina). It is strong enough to prevent leakage, the blood is trapped inside the vagina and can only be released when the adhesive is dissolved by the urine.

He refers to his product as "potty training for your period." He claims it is cleaner, healthier, and more secure and carries less risk of infections than the use of tampons and pads but many women are not convinced.

According to So Feminine, the idea was spotted by a Twitter user named Tara who shared a screenshot from Mensez's Facebook page. Mensez is Dopps' company that manufactures the labia lipstick, which has since been deleted in social media.

The Mensez controversial received backlash from women on Facebook. In basic biology, period blood is meant to exit the vagina naturally as a self-cleaning system. This may cause more pain and discomfort in women and increase chances of contracting Toxic Shock Syndrome.

In a response to one negative comment, Dopps said, "Yes, I am a man and you as a woman should have come up with a better solution that diapers and plugs, but you didn't."

Dr Vanessa Mackay, spokesperson from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists said "The labia minora contain numerous glands, designed to secrete mucus to protect the labia from dryness and mechanical irritation. The urethra lies between the labia minor. There is no evidence that the Mensez feminine lipstick is either safe or effective, and, if used, it may lead to dryness, irritation or infection of the vulva, vagina or urethra."

Despite the expert advice, Dopps is confident that the product is totally safe for use. His ideas is patented in January but production has not started yet according to Daily Record.
