    Disgusting creatures... :/ That is like using toilet paper over and over again, or condoms or something that shouldn't be used over and over... TEEA BAGS! As Mr Garrison says; "never trust something that bleeds for that many days and doesn't die."

    Well condoms have a long history and for most of it were reusable.

    Why would it be yukky? Women have managed for centuries before disposables came along and of course there is the issue of the environment. Surely it is much more yukky to be swimming in the sea and a used tampax floats past. It is like nappies (diapers) people just chuck them in the rubbish and forget about them, it is much better for the environment if we get off our lazy bums and wash re-usable nappies. Really people have become so embarrassed about natural bodily functions - pass wind anyone? :p:D

    When they get old you can bury them in the corn field on the full moon to keep evil spirits away.

    lol, the cups... to collect the issue...lol... so many of the green brigade see them as a viable alternative to, erm, other things... even funnier that Dauer mentions them, though... lol... moon-cups, I've seen them branded as...

    imagine making ur own though, in say, a fetching plaid, and it slipped out ur pants at a dinner party...lol...

    and then I thought... aww... you would have to be really hard up to do it, unless u were an eco-warrior...

    as for reusing condoms... they did, initially...

    initially, after ppl had caught the pox, etc, they realised a barrier might be effective, and so experimented with many things- sheep bladders, wool, silk, linen, etc, and eventually, they dicovered rubber! they were really thick things, like inner tubes on ur bike, and covered in talcum powder, and the idea was... u washed them out afterwards, rolled them back up, and u could use them forever, or until they degraded... there is a famous work of fiction, can't for the life of me think of the title, however, the central character, in the 1950's, ish, as a boy, used to go with his friends diving to collect used rubbers, and roll them up and resell them...lol... Brighton Rock (?), I think is the title, yes, and Graham Greene, the author...

    The first time I read about cups was in a Jewish group on livejournal. I think it might've been knishdelish, which specifically dealt with issues of sex and sexuality in Judaism. Someone started a topic about cups and how she really liked them because they helped her get more in touch with her cycles and get to be comfortable with her menstrual fluids instead of feeling like they're dirty. A few other people who also used cups concurred, but I dunno. Sounds icky to me.

    lolol. It's a cup worn inside the body to catch all of the menstrual fluids. Then it has to be emptied. The most popular kinds are reusable.

    Dauer, that belongs in the really gross thread - ICKY. I am so sorry I asked.

    I have to confess I do know how men feel about this subject. I had all my reproductive stuff removed in my 20's and since that time I can't even walk down 'that' aisle of the supermarket and the bins in the toilets make me feel nausious.

    It's not just men though is it? Do you feel it is something you should/and want to talk about? lol.... Like where the hell do you bring that subject up... lol. The only time -some- women would bring it up is when they are in one of 'those moods' the moods where they almost get the 1000 yard stare. The mood where you have to be like a midget in a urinal, always on your toes... The mood where they could literally rip your freaking face off in the blink of an eye, the mood.... You get where I am going.

    I don't dare click on the link in the OP, but I'm sure that for millenia reusable was the only way to go! It's just a little blood. :eek:

    17th, my kids love your hamster avatar movie.

    Muslimwoman, I love ya but that new avi with the green eyes looks possessed! I can't look at her!
