Should you? Could this not be dangerous?

How would it be dangerous?

Your navel isn't a route to your intestines or anything. grin

I think you are thinking of newborns smile
Get a mirror and have a good look inside your belly button. Its a small pocket of skin that collects fluff, and its closed off from your insides.

Its a different case with newborns, theirs is still capable pf passing an infection inside. Once its healed over, its fine.

Ok then! Relieved! grin

Nobody needs to be spraying deodorant into no belly buttons, no how no way.

I would be unnerved, but would not fear for my life.

No, but I did learn the other day that your belly button is apparently connected to your bladder. That's why it feels weird to touch it, it makes the brain think you want to pee (or something).

You obviously can't make your wee smell nicer by Lynx-ing your belly button though...

Doesn't spraying deodorant into your belly button make the champagne and strawberries taste odd?

Mummyoflittledragon Sat 21-Oct-17 13:06:38

I can confirm our skin is water proof. grin

I once knew a woman in her 20s, mother of a child, that thought if you got your belly button pierced it would stop you having children. I explained very nicely why that was incorrect and not a reliable method of contraception.

InsomniacAnonymous Sat 21-Oct-17 13:16:13

What did you think could happen, OP?

InsomniacAnonymous Sat 21-Oct-17 13:17:12

lazarusb WTF? How the hell can anyone be that thick? Did you ask her why she thought that?

Notso Sat 21-Oct-17 13:19:04

Not sure about deodorant but I did once fill my sisters belly button up with fairy liquid which she didn't wash out properly and it went all crusty and gross.

Trills Sat 21-Oct-17 13:19:18

I did read a book where a navel piercing was used as contraception.

But it was a fantasy book and the charm on the piercing was made of dragon cocoon carved into a specific shape.

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Sat 21-Oct-17 13:23:05

How do you get to your 20s and believe that. Did you ask how she thought that might work?

Presumably not through Dragon cocoon

lazarusb Sat 21-Oct-17 15:30:24

She knew that the belly button was connected to pregnancy (being the cord and all that) but apparently didn't understand that after birth it just becomes a knot in your abdomen. I'm not altogether sure she didn't think I was lying tbh...

OnTheRise Sat 21-Oct-17 15:59:44

When I was little I was often worried that my belly button was going to come undone.

But I've never thought it had anything to do with contraception. That's really weird.

My ex mil was adamant her unborn dc was coming out through her belly button. .
She was in her 20's.
Her poor mw having to tell her the truth!!

I'm sorry if I'm being really stupid but how can your ex mil not have had a child before? What about your DH/DW? confused

It’s not ok to spray deodorant into somebody else’s belly button.

If it’s your own, spray away.
