The Diva Cup Reviewed By Felicity:
This place is for girls, notably people who like to go nude! Men, if period-conversation makes you uneasy, then keep reading 😉
Well I came across just a little menstruation (Yeah it is like 6th grade health class all over again) product awhile back called the Diva Cup. I was definitely curious to try it, so when I saw it on the shelf in my own local health food store, I snatched it up! The Diva Cup is a silicone-established menstrual cup which is inserted into the vagina just like a tampon. However, instead of absorbing everything, it is all rolled up in the cup. You are able to wear it for up to 12 hours at a time (in http://nudists-young.org/contri/of-course-erections-should-be-covered-up/ to altering a tampon every few hours), and it doesn’t leak! (Given it is properly inserted, and it might take some training.)
Diva Cup and its carrying case
Can you dread the “ruby wave” crashing your nakation? I understand many girls do, particularly those new to nudism. Well I was excited to review this on my site because this is amazing for naturist girls! It is so discrete, you no longer have to worry about an inept, observable tampon string. Women, this is http://shockintown.com/post/now-i-sunbathe-only-nude/ to love going completely unclothed during your period and be more relaxed and comfortable doing so. It took me a few days to get used to it, but the cup is actually very user-friendly. I remember hearing about this kind of merchandise quite a while ago, believing it seemed cluttered and a little gross, but it’s not. Plus it is so much more suitable than tampons. (Ever been to Sandy Hook naked beach and had to trip back and forth to the bathroom a mile away?) It also might take a little practice, but it actually won’t leak when it is correctly fit.
The other advantages of using the Diva Cup instead of tampons and pads are that it’s eco-friendly and saves a fortune. The Diva Cup individuals did some computations, estimating the typical woman will use 10,000 tampons and pads in her lifetime. That is lots of resulting waste and money. Additionally they quote some research: “More than 170,000 tampon applicators were gathered along U.S. coastal regions between 1998 and 1999.” There is so much plastic and garbage that washes up on shores, and I’d prefer never to add my dumped tampon applicators to it. Ick! If properly cared for, the Diva Cup will survive for 1 year and costs around $30 to $40, making it more cost effective than tampons/pads purchased in annually.
The drawbacks? For one, I was worried by the long list of soaps which you should not use to clean it, aka every kind of soap I had at home. But really any light, unscented soap should be good, or you’re able to get the Diva Wash, especially made for it. Another dilemma is if you end up trying to take it out and wash it privately in a public bathroom. Nobody desires to take that up to the sink. The solution is simple though: empty it into the bathroom, clean it off with some tissue, and good to go until you get home.
For additional questions or concerns I recommend heading over to the Diva Cup FAQ page.
