CORONATION Street’s Nicola Thorp has hit out at a company for selling pills which claim to make your vagina taste ‘sweeter’.
My Sweet V claims to make women – and men – ‘taste and smell better’ down there, giving people’s privates a “semi-fruity taste”.
Nicola, 30, lashed out at the brand and the influencers promoting the product, which claims to be “unique and amazing”.
The actress, who plays Nicola Rubinstein on the cobbles, tweeted: “Now they’re ‘influencing’ us to take pills to make us taste ‘sweeter’.
“’You should always taste better than the next chick’?!?!? FACK OFF.
“It’s just awful. It’s basically a fruit sweet… with secret sensual ingredient…. cinnamon.
“Stop targeting women to pay $30 a month on a s***** product to CHANGE THE FLAVOUR OF THEIR VAGINAS YOU ABSOLUTE S* ** SHOW.
“And the influencers peddling this BS can do one.”
My Sweet V costs £23.78 ($29.95) for 60 capsules, and promises to “give you a semi-fruity taste and sensual smell.”
Nicola’s tweet has been liked hundreds of times, as other women lashed out at the product.
Another woman responded: “One of the sickest things I’ve ever seen.
“As they’re stripping us of our rights to do with our bodies what we feel best, we still need to make sure we TASTE good however. Handmaids isn’t a dream.”
Someone else tweeted: “This is actually horrendous.”
A third replied: “If the person you’re sleeping with prefers you to taste like sweets and not like a woman you need to find yourself better sexual partners.”
And this person said: “Is this for real?? Does anyone believe this rubbish??”
Describing the pills, the website says: “My Sweet Secretion Sweetener is designed with women in mind but now the herbal and fruit based unisex formula can also be taken by men.
“My Sweet is an all-natural supplement which is also designed to maximize your sexual experience.
“My Sweet is revolutionizing sex lives all over the world!”
The website says the pills are made from “natural, safe and even nutritionally beneficial” ingredients, including wheatgrass, cinnamon, magic berry, pineapple, Acai berry and papaya.
Despite carrying a statement from a Dr Timothy Beckett, who said he was “more than satisfied” with results, the website states the claims haven’t been verified by the authorities.
My Sweet V said: “These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
“Individual results may vary.”
And it says the pills have only been manufactured in “FDA-approved GMP facilities.”
The NHS says vaginal discharge is “normal”, and women can get it at any age, adding it varies according to your cycle.
If there is an unpleasant smell, it could be a sign of an infection such as thrush or an STI and the NHS advised women to see their GP.
They said women can’t prevent discharge, adding: “Panty liners can help with heavy or excessive discharge or if you’re worried about any smell.”
They warned women not to use perfumed soaps, gels, deodorants or scented hygiene wipes.
