Just when we thought that TikTok trends could not get any weirder, netizens are now talking about vabbing at the gym.
TikTok trends have always been a hit and a miss. While some draw positive attention towards them and stay on the platform for a long time, others are quickly shunned because they are just too weird or silly to carry out. However, the issue is that even when a trend is not being liked by the public it still ends up being trendy on the platform because everyone starts discussing why they don’t like that certain trend.
The recent viral trend on TikTok is about vabbing at the gym. The term vabbing is confusing quite a lot of people. As an attempt to attract potential partners, vabbing refers to using vaginal fluids as a body scent.
The gym has always been a great arena to meet your potential life partner. Additionally, research has always demonstrated that scent and perfumes play a huge role in getting attracted to someone. Thus, vabbing or vaginal dabbing has apparently been serving this purpose well, where people are doing this before going to the gym.
However, no scientific research has given any credibility to this particular trend. Rather, many people are worried because of how unhygienic this can be. While many individuals are trying this trend, a significant majority have taken to Twitter to express their disgust over this trend. The issue is that those people who are participating in it are making the entire gym equipment unusable for everyone else.

It is quite concerning as to the kind of lengths people would go to gain popularity on TikTok. Having fun on social media platforms is one thing, but trends like vabbing clearly indicate that not many people have any concern about spreading diseases, especially in the aftermath of COVID-19.
In the presence of such trends, gym staff should be mindful about cleaning the equipment after each use. For the sake of your protection, always wipe the machines at the gym before using them, as you never know who has touched them before.
