I’ll pause a moment for you to scrub that mental image from your cortex.
I can be exhausted, sick as a dog, or missing a limb, and I would still be up for the horizontal mambo. In fact, the only thing that would stop me is sex during that time of the month; and even then, it’s a 50/50 proposition. Now a company has created a weapon to combat that problem.
Want to raise $1 million? Promise women—and their significant others—a device that allows them to have sex during their periods without worrying about blood. The Flex Company received that amount in funding this month. The San Francisco-based startup, which calls its FLEX menstrual disc the anti-tampon, has been accepting orders online since April.
FLEX is a single-use menstrual cup that can be worn for up to 12 hours without the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome. It’s also hypoallergenic and latex-free, and can help “alleviate cramps.” Because the discs collect menstrual fluid while being worn next to the cervix instead of in the vaginal canal, Flex says they can be worn during intercourse for “mess-free period sex.” (H/T – Redneck Geezer)
Well, with me there will always be a mess, what, between her gush and my sploosh. The only difference is the liquids will be clear – or off-white – rather than red. Heh.
