Oh dear. Unbelievable. Just unbelievable.
what....wh....why gawd why would she say something like that...and offer a syringe.....?
And maybe I'm a little rusty on how things work down there*, but why the syringe - doesn't the male anatomy have a built-in "syringe"? Clearly I don't get it. And I have the heebeejeebies just at the thought of my MIL offering such a thing. I feel for you Mandaliz. (shudder)
PS - you could try a reflexology session - a good Reflexologist though. Like, properly trained in the holistic remedy. I don't know about down there, but up here a lot of under-qualified spa techs throw in an extra 10 minutes of massage in their pedicure and call it "reflexology". Having spent a whole year of school to become an RRPr (registered reflexology practitioner) I find this personally insulting. Not to mention if someone doesn't know what they are doing it may not be the best thing. Like going to a discount plastic surgeon. Just sayin'.
*srsly, I spread my legs to do a hamstring stretch the other day and bats flew out
