just saw these advertised in the may issue of scarlet mag

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 10:55:41

scarlet ? Is that the vaguely pervy mag ???

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 10:56:24

BTW, thought of mooncup or anything I have to wash out post-menstrually makes me <shudder>

noddyholder Wed 20-Apr-05 10:59:11

Gobbledigook Wed 20-Apr-05 10:59:41

noddyholder Wed 20-Apr-05 10:59:47

JoolsToo Wed 20-Apr-05 11:00:09

thankfully - I don't even have to think about it

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 11:01:04

Thanks GDG.

noddy, I'm not shocked just a bit <eurghhhhhhh> about it all.

Gobbledigook Wed 20-Apr-05 11:01:19

I know what you mean noddyholder - it's not as icky as a mooncup but I really just don't want any extra washing! I've done 9 loads this week as it is!

expatinscotland Wed 20-Apr-05 11:01:48

That put me right off the choccie biscuit I was about to eat.

noddyholder Wed 20-Apr-05 11:03:16

9 loads of ashing might put me off too Thanks lou, due to surgery and other stuff that I won't go into I haven't been able to use tampons since 2001 and so these look ideal for me I am getting quite excited

<<What can I do if I am using a public restroom and don't feel comfortable rinsing out my sponge tampon?

Simply drop your used sponge into a small container and rinse them when you return home. Sponges that have been sitting in a container all day need to be well washed well with any of the methods described within this Website or in our brochure>>

Oh, please, nooooooo.

JoolsToo Wed 20-Apr-05 11:06:40

what about this?!!!

noddyholder Wed 20-Apr-05 11:08:41

those teeth look sharp but otherwise he looks pretty absorbent

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 11:10:40

He looks a bit nylon-y, a bit itchy, IYSWIM

snafu Wed 20-Apr-05 11:11:34

He's got 'wings' though. Always useful in sanitary protection.

not too kleeky for ya?

lou33 Wed 20-Apr-05 11:19:04

Yes NdeP that's the mag. They aren't my sort of thing, but I thought someone might be interested.

mag also says that only 25% of women have an orgasm thorugh penetrative sex alone.

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 12:58:52

Well, duh........ Given that the clitoris (can I say that at lunchtime?!) it's pretty straightforwardly obvious !

I read somewhere that it takes an average of 22 minutes of foreplay for a woman to reach orgasm.

NomDePlume Wed 20-Apr-05 12:59:42

meant to say "clitoris is on the outside..."
