A new feminine product commercial isn't leaving all viewers refreshed.

"What's more stupid: the existence of a 'V' product or the manly response?" one YouTuber wrote. Another took issue with the wife's terminology for her privates: "I think saying 'A woman's V' is more offensive than just saying f---ing vagina."
