You have to be kidding me. Menstruation is a natural body function. Would you say the same thing about picking up breast pump filters? You're buying cotton tubes in a box. It's not like she is asking you to put it in for her.

Tampons go on the grocery list along with everything else. If I'm doing the shopping, I buy them. If H is out, he buys them.

When I was a kid, my dad did most of the grocery shopping. I think he actually handed me my first box of pads (ew, I wore those at one point).

Yes, purchasing the accoutrements is the ordeal.

It's an ordeal? LOL. You must live a really easy life if making a really routine purchase of hygiene products constitutes an ordeal.

I hope you never have to purchase (gasp) toilet paper, lest a cashier ascertain that someone in your household defecates regularly.

I would prefer she handle her own feminine needs for the reasoning that I don't want to be in charge of handling her cycles, but I would never be appossed to picking them up for her in the case of an emerancy or because she had forgotten and I was able to grab them for her.

I think she would be more embarrassed for me than I could ever be. Knowing my wife she would be incredibly embarrassed to have to ask me in the first place

Is this an actual issue men have? They're afraid other shoppers are going to think that they're for themselves or what? "Oh, yes, I like to insert them in orifices. I know, it's weird, but it's just how I am. Hyuk."

If I see a box of tampons in a man's shopping cart, I'm not thinking that they're for him. Although I've heard tampons are useful for nose bleeds, so it's not a bad idea to have some handy.

How hard is it to take a couple boxes of tampons or whatever, walk up to the counter and pay for them?

Are these men worried that they are being used for some sort of embarrassing kink?

I recently had a vicious nose bleed that the doc had to pack my nose with tampon like material, complete with strings hanging off my face.

Material for conversation I'm sure. Lol

I usually stand in front of this wall of products thinking, what was it she said get? Whats worse than buying feminine products is having to go back and exchange it.

My husband has never had an issue buying tampons for me. We've been together for 25 years and he's purchased them during that entire time. Not once has he been embarrassed.
