Which is it ladies?
I agree, reb. Cardboard hurts and is so uncomfortable. I don't see how you couldn't want plastic instead.
Plastic. I tried cardboard because of the whole biodegradable thing, but they hurt, and they leak.
plastic all the way!
Aunt Flo turns into Witch Hazel!
definately plastic. i tried the cardboard tampons once and it pinched my skin and it took very careful maneuvering to get it unstuck and it hurt like a motherf****er.. OUCH!
LOL Reading this thread makes me feel like I have a cavernous pussy of doom! I've never had trouble with cardboard applicators, and I use the super absorbency size.
All the conversations Ive heard on the subject are pretty much about how they hate tampax for that reason, its all about the gentle glide.
Which is why I was so confused when I saw Tampax's new marketing campaign... NEW! CARDBOARD APPLICATORS!
Like... Ive never used one, but... I thought that was the OLD shit.. lol.
LOL I thought the same thing, Grazi.
You know, if I were a super hero, that would be my secret weapon.
hello ladies of cc.com .....kinda stumbled into this thread....but even thou im a bloke the sound of er...cardboard ...women things kinda even makes me think that would hurt,
Cardboard doesn't hurt, but it just doesn't make for as sturdy an applicator as plastic. Tampax tampons themselves have an inferior design, if you ask me.
My vote goes for plastic. Playtex Gentle Glide regulars are my favorite.
Hurrah for menopause! Even with the hot flashes, I love it! - Granny:hippy:
They do have a crappy design. What's with the damn things getting longer when they get wet? :wtf: I've actually had them extend down and partially out! If that's not a design flaw, I don't know what is. That's the part that hurts.
haha ya know? Retro is only fashionable in certain scenarios..
Yeahhhh... that was my ex's other main concern with em. Said it hurt. I dunno. Gentleglide just SOUNDS more comfortable lol.
