Nobody wears a white coat any more...
...a tribute to becoming a doctor.
"Let's say for a moment that I am tab A..."
Discussion of the Instead feminine alternate for tampons. Michelly's friend Leah swears by them. I may have to find and try.
They say you can have sex while wearing them. Since Angel usually complains that going down on me when I'm on my period - tampon or not - tastes funny, and sex becomes a battle with the blood, this would be nice. Apparently CVS and Walgreens sell them.

In any case, in the discussion it became imperative that we discuss the orientation of female vulvar anatomy. And the following conversation took place.
Jefe: You have spare uteri in the kitchen?
Me: No, but I have sandwich bags!
I then proceeded to grab a sandwich bag, say "Imagine this is slot B" - the term we were using for our generic female partner - and then bite a hole in it. By this time we were on the floor, falling over with laughter.

Does anyone know about/have used them, besides Leah? They look interesting.

Hey lady!

A few of my friends swear by a very similar product. I didn't read the full site, but it's the same idea. The one they use is re-usable, made of natural gum rather than plastic or rubber.

For the first few uses they had to use liners until they figured out exactly how it should be placed- damn small leaks.

They also said it was a bit awkward having to empty it while at public washrooms. Obviously at home you can use your own sink, but public rooms pose a privacy and sanitation issue.

Otherwise, the girls are absolutely thrilled. I believe they found theirs on womynswaer.com.

Umm, womynsware.com.

I'm sleepy.

There'd be a real benefit to them being disposable in public situations, I think. Thanks for the word :)
