Sometimes the internet gives us strange AF hacks that stir up quite a lot of controversy among people. For instance, this latest TikTok trend that is called vabbing.
Apparently, the technique is supposed be used before a date, or in general if you’re simply looking to attract a potential partner.
TikTok user @jewlieah claimed that vabbing got her free drinks and a gift from multiple guys she met at the pool, and many other women have made similar claims.

Personal opinion: As far as the scientific evidence for how successful this technique is and how hygienic it is, vabbing does not seem like a great idea.
