Vagina tightening trend in Zimbabwe

As the presence of vagina tightening herbs and concoction grows in Zimbabwe, it seems more and more women are turning to this option to keep their men happy



Some local Zimbabwe men are thought to prefer engaging in coitus with women who are dry and tight below., New Zimbabwe reported.

This has resulted in vagina tightening herbs and treatments going mainstream through hair salons openly selling the concoctions to happily paying clients. A far cry from trade that was previously associated with vice girls.

But the so-called Mushonga weku tightena treatments pose the risk of cervical cancer.

Cancer specialist Professor Mike Chirenje said women were putting their health in danger by using the herbs.  “Intense vaginal washing (douching) with any agent is considered bad practice because it fights the body’s natural defences called lactobacilli that maintain acidic pH to kill incoming bugs. A gentle wash with clean water is all that’s needed,” he said.


Despite this, the business is growing. Merchants and suppliers are seeing increased turnover from selling these items.

Busi, a hairdresser operating in Harare, said “I have my clients from married women to ladies of the night. When l am at home I go out in the night clubs to sell them. I’m not sure whether it works or not; but why would they buy it like that if it doesn’t give them the desired results.”
