Please, you have gay male readers. Don’t post stuff that makes us heave.

My source material is women’s magazines, darling. Sanitary protection was bound to come up sooner or later, along with your dinner, it seems :)

I know one person who avoids tampons wherever possible because of the reports of Toxic Shock Syndrome associated with their use at the time she started her periods.

Oh, my friend’s mother was the same, and put my friend off using them. I read the warnings, and decided that the risk was pretty low. I also hated pads and was unlikely to be put off by something relatively rare anyway!

Hmmm. There is that.

In our house, pads are called “tuppence pillows,” by the way. Stop me when I give away too much information!

My nan used to refer to it as a ha’penny…

That’s inflation for you!

Applicator? Applicator?! Christ on a bike.

Actually I remember the phrase “No Belts, No Pins, No Pads, No Odour” from Radio Luxembourg. As Tampax ads were not permitted on ITV then, as the ITA was prevented by the 1954 Television Act from allowing them, the makers used Radio Luxembourg a lot. (No UK Commercial Radio then) – and I remember that phrase *as a jingle*. – Tell Mumoss That!!!!! – Even as a 12 year old it made me incredulous. Glad I didn’t know about insertion applicators either. That would have been the last straw for a giggly schoolboy in 1964. I would never have seen women in the same light again.

And, Kif, I believe you didn’t.
