This n that

Here is a product display I walked by at a health supplement store. I had read about these things on Lyvvie's blog, although I don't think she ever came back with a review from personal experience. Anyway, if you can't tell what it is, it's called "the menstrual solution", which is news to me because that's what I thought a hysterectomy was. That middle product is the special soap for your Diva Cup.

The gay festival was a total bust. It rained all weekend so the outdoor events were very subdued. I'm sure the late night raves and dances were full of hanky-panky, but my constitution is too frail for such shenanigans these days. (Read: I choose to shun them) Luckily for us, there is another festival, gay pride, which takes place in two weeks. Hopefully the weather will be more cooperative for the parade.

Before that though, I've got to head out to see the folks in California. I'm taking off Wednesday for a week of fun at Mom's house and a little junket to Vegas with Laverne. Must get my hairs cut today. All of the ones on my head anyway. Have a lovely Monday peeps.

How very male of you ;-) then again, you really have no reason to keep on top of these sorts of things, so I guess it's OK. Have a lovely time in California. I should be back from Timor in a week or so, and my much, much delayed 40th b-day party can finally take place. I'll keep you posted.

The Diva Cup is quite amazing, but the testimonials on its web site are nutty and over the top.

Just a lurker who's leaving a comment. I tried the Diva cup but went back to disposable products. *hangs head* I can't believe the company is marketing "special" soap for it, though.

Have a safe trip. The weather has been beautiful -- it's supposed to be in the high 70's/low 80's all week in my area of California, at least. :)

Why don't we have a drink (or six) and then talk about you letting me give your hairs a cutting. And do send along a Diva cup, would you? We all need one.....after all, we're all Divas!

eeewwwwwww

Have fun in sunny California. Knowing you, you'll probably get a fabulous tan and look 10 years younger after a week in the sun.

Hysterectomy!? That's like lopping off your foot for a plantar wart!

I envy your trip.

What does a woman do with the Diva Cups?

Well, now...is it a "solution" as in "your final answer"...or is it a solution, like, a bunch of ingredients dissolved in water? Really, this is moot...I have no reason to care.

Shame about the rain. "Frail constitution...", pah.

Oh, yay, more Torn Travelogue to come...

I tried the Diva Cup and then told Lyvvie about it. I hated it. Lyvvie loves it. I couldn't get past the slurping sound it makes when you remove it. *gag*

I hope you and Laverne do some vlogging while you're in Vegas! That would be fun!

Enjoy your Monday as well and have a great trip to California and back.

i have to admit, that is the very last picture that i ever conceived (heh) of being on a gay man's blog.

as to a review, i've never used them, but a friend of mine does and she likes them. not only does she not have to continually buy pads/tampons, but she's not contributing to further pollution.

i'm sure that's far too much information for many of your readers :)

Come to California, visit us and have fun.

I plan not have any more tremors here, so you'll be safe.

I love my cup! I tend to tell other women who complain about their periods in comments on their blogs but funny you should mention my not doing my own post as I was talking to my GP this morning and she suggested I write an article for a woman's magazine and I've decided I'm going to do just that.

Biggest benefit is never having to buy tampons or pads again. Or pay tax for them. Or pollute the environment. Or fill landfills. So, sure there's a small noise when the suction pops - I find it amusing! Only downside I've found is I need to carry a nail brush. So far, the pros win.

I think you are the best for putting stuff like menstrual cups, perfect poop and contortionist cocksucking on your blog. I adore you! *smooch*

And here I was hoping it was some kind of candy product, like a peanut butter cup.
