INTRODUCTION
Vaginal steaming is a practice, recently popularized by one Gwyneth Paltrow, that involves a female sitting over steaming water (possibly infused with herbs) and letting the water enter their vagina.

MY POSITION
I argue that vaginal steaming has no significant, scientifically verified health benefits relevant to most females in the USA.

PRO'S PICTURES

Mental scarring, anyone?

So I Google image searched the images Pro posted.

The first appears to show up for "blue waffle" [1]. This is a fictional disease, which is actually just cases of acute vaginitis [2]. There is nothing to link this picture to a failure to vaginally steam.

The second appears to show up for "great pu$$y lips from below" [4]. In other words, it's the same kind of thing somebody would search for when horny. There is nothing to link this picture to vaginally steaming.

Basically, neither of these images are related to vaginally steaming. They're just images from around the Internet. You can't accept them as evidence of, well, anything.

Furthermore, this evidence is not:
(1) verified -- no peer review has been done of these pictures
(2) significant -- we don't know what the impact is here
(3) scientific -- this evidence is 2 pictures, basically anecdotal evidence, not empirical studies

STEAM FOR A BLUE WAFFLE

In contrast, numerous doctors have pointed out that vaginal steaming can *cause* vaginal infection (and thus lead to the blue waffle picture seen above), can cause steam burns, and can spread STDs (which can lead to the blue waffle picture seen above) [3]. Basically, vaginally steaming can cause the above picture, and not the lower.

Vaginal steaming has also been associated with lacerations of the vagina, leading to bleeding [3], which certainly isn't healthy.

Debate Round No. 3

Con

See my Round 3 rebuttal for why Pro's picture is irrelevant. It's anecdotal.

I remind Pro that they MUST pass in Round 4. If Pro does otherwise, vote Con.

SUMMARY

Arguments & Sources: Pro has failed to present any scientific evidence that vaginal steaming is effective. Con has presented evidence that the opposite is true. You must vote Con, on both sources and arguments.

Grammar: Pro has had, by far, the worse grammar, with sentences without periods and uncapitalized starting words. Vote Con.

Conduct: You may also vote Con on conduct, given that Pro has not taken the debate seriously and has instead posted pictures of vaginas.

Some people do. Many, many others claim it has health benefits. Seek evidence? Follow the link.

I think people do it to relax, and don't actually care it's scientifically helpful or what not.
