OK, so, having yoghurt-knitting hippie tendencies I try to use non-disposable SanPro where possible. And I am prepared to discuss why and how and so on... This has led to me having to explain why I don't like tampons. Apart from the environmental aspect, and their tendency to cause TSS, one argument I have used is that I don't really like having to get hold of a urine-soaked tampon string for removal purposes. When I said this once I was told that urine is no more 'dirty' than blood, and that I should get over it. Well, fair enough, but is that true? I mean, I don't mind sucking a cut on my finger, but I wouldn't want to lick my own urine off my hand, frankly. P.S. If anyone would like a GMail account, PM me with an email address where I can send an invitation. If you don't know what one is, I'm sure someone will tell you but you probably wouldn't want one.
