  1. Seems like that DR.'S should have had a little more respect for the female doctor when it came to utilizing the word VAGINA on this episode 🤔

  2. I've met some people who are iffy about birth control .. then that's what a condom is for. Don't go shoving some random oil up your vagina 😖😳

  3. the fact that women think that flowers or seeds will prevent them from getting knocked up is fucking hilarious
