The Vodka Tampon: It’s Not Just For Girls!

Lock up the Kotex, Mom and Dad! Teens are apparently inserting vodka-soaked tampons vaginally and rectally to get drunk. Granted, this could be another urban legend like so-called “rainbow parties.” But it also could be a legit way the kids are getting wasted these days: A super-sized tampon can hold about a shot of vodka, and…

Should I Be Embarrassed To Buy Tampons?

I just had the strangest thing happen. About 10 minutes ago, I ran to the drugstore to buy a box of tampons, picking up the latest copy of Us Weekly while I was at it. After I paid, the cashier folded the magazine around the outside of the tampon box and stuck them both i…

Important Secret Of The Day

Guys, in case you were wondering, when you see women whispering (because we are constantly telling each other secrets), we are probably talking about our tampons and how “modern” they are. I’m not exactly sure what kind of tampons my mother used, or how the tampons I use are different, but one thing is certain:…

Activists Mailing Photos Of Used Tampons To Georgia Politician

Of all the anti-abortion legislative f***ery to happen recently, one of the saddest stories is out of Georgia. As I blogged in Today’s Lady News on Wednesday, GA State Representative Bobby Franklin has introduced a bill that would would classify abortion as “prenatal murder” in order to criminalize it, which would thus require miscarriages to…

Girl Talk: I’m 29 And I Am Afraid To Buy Tampons

The o.b. shortage is coming to an end with supplies of non-applicator plugs re-upping in stores around the country. For me, the panic that drove women to buy boxes of overpriced tampons on eBay was solace for a shameful secret: I was 29 years old and had never gone to a store and bought menstrual products.

O.B. Tampons Go Missing From NYC Shelves!

This morning, a former (male) colleague of mine posted a link to a New York Daily News news story on my Facebook wall. “Right up your alley sister…” said this friend of mine. “Women searching far and wide for o.b. tampons after they mysteriously disappear from store shelves,” read the headline. I am so pleased…

What Do We Think Of Hot Men Undressing To Sell Maxi Pads?

We ladies don’t get too much eye candy in TV commercials. The advertising motto “sex sells” seems only to apply to fake breasts selling body spray and beer. But all that is changed by Stayfree’s new series of YouTube commercials, “A Date With …” Three hunks who take off their shirts, three dream…

French Tampon Campaign Featuring “Max Le Tampax” Is Wrong In So Many Ways

Nevermind how I found myself at the French website for Tampax. What’s more crazy is what I found there: a marketing campaign recruiting Tampax tampon users to vie for a spot as president of the “Max Le Tampax” Fan Club. Why anyone in their right mind would want to be the president of a clu…

Khloe Kardashian Battles “Vajayjay” And “Aunt Flow”

Besides sharing her first period story with the world as part of a Kotex video series, Khloe Kardashian has joined the Declaration of Real Talk campaign. The initiative, launched by the feminine products brand, is supposed to empower young women to talk about their bodies without resorting to the use of slang terms like “vajayjay.”…

So That’s Where All My Tampons Went

Well, this looks like a “Project Runway” challenge guest judged by Eve Ensler, now doesn’t it? Designer Walter Raes is big on creating fashions out of everyday, “unlikely” materials — he designed Keypad Clubbing Top, the Cassette Tape Dance Dress and the Cola Wedding Dress. So what are you looking at here? Cotton tampons were…

Those Aren’t Crystals …

Oh, what a glamorous chandelier! It looks so chic in this elegant passageway. But there’s somewhere even more uptight all these pieces were meant to be— each of those 14,000 tampons was made to decorate a vag. But luckily the Belem Cultural Center in Lisbon, Portugal, had the next best thing to a real vajayjay:…

Regretsy, Where Bad Crafts Go To Thrive

Here at The Frisky, we’re pretty big Etsy fans. We have a soft spot for all those darling creations and a major appreciation for the type of crafty folks out there who actually take the time to make goods by hand. But sometimes we’re cruisin’ through the site and suddenly come across these sort of…

It’s Raining Tampons!

Here’s a crazy idea—a Dutch tampon company dropped these little, pink tampon parachutes on a beach to promote their brand. They’re kind of amazing, if not terrible for the environment. Although you probably can’t understand what the people in this video are saying, watching it will tell you two things. 1) Tampons are…

Zack Johnson Has a Vagina! And Gets His Period!

I remember when I got my period for the first time. I had just gotten back from the worst day at school ever—I was in a crap mood and had what I thought was a wicked stomach ache. My mom dragged me to my grandparent’s house for dinner and that’s when I discovered what wa…

Would You Use A Tampon USB?

Whether your data flow is light, heavy or super, the tampon USB, which comes in 1GB, 8GB, and 16GB, has your needs covered and will be available soon for an undisclosed amount of money. I shudder to think what might happen if you get the USB tampon confused for the real thing… [via Modern Materialist]…

The Ultimate Care…Down There

We’ve established this already, but commercials in the U.K. rule. This one, for some British brand of tampons, is no exception. Normally we’re not into calling our vaginas by anything associated with food, animals, or plant life, but this beav is awfully cute. [You Tube]…

Cho ‘Nuff: Comedienne Comes To Britney’s Tampon’s Defense

Margaret Cho has a bleeding heart for Britney, and her vagina’s got something to say about it too. The comedienne lashes out at the paparazzi for taking a cheap shot of Britney flashing some period stained undies. To make matters better for the pop tart…or worse if you’ve got a Y chromosome, Cho goes o…
