Want a Raise? Make Sure to Douche!
I certainly hope you washed certain sensitive areas if you're planning on asking for a raise today.   (Shutterstock)

The number one step in getting a raise: Wash your…what?! Women’s Day magazine ran a regrettable ad from Summer’s Eve Feminine Wash that states vaginal cleansing is the most important factor when it comes to asking for a raise—at least, when it comes to women asking for a raise. Because it’ll make you feel confident, of course!

Not only should you shower with Summer’s Eve in order to “feel your best,” you should also freshen up with their “feminine cleansing cloths” if you find yourself in need of a “quick freshness pick-me-up.” The worst part of the ad is that it looks disturbingly similar to regular Women’s Day editorial content, complete with the headline, “Confidence at Work: How to Ask for a Raise.” See it here at the Daily Kos.
