That would only potentially work if you say they're for your little sister or something. Otherwise I'd just think "Aww that guy is so sweet to his gf/wife."

I just remembered, I've also bought pads for my first German Shepherd. The vet wanted her to go through her first heat before he'd spay her, so we bought a doggie belt for her to wear. The pads that came with it were thin and didn't last, so my wife suggested using lady pads. They worked great and were cheaper than the doggie ones.

Aside from that, do you really care.

What is the worse that it says - some woman in my life is on their period and needs lady products ... shock

Even if it did say something bad, etc .... again, why would you care what some stranger things.

I just had a case of wine delivered to my home ... I'm not concerned if the UPS guy thinks I'm a drunk.

With two young kids and a dog I buy a decent amount of carpet cleaner - I don't care what impression that gives the store clerk.

Amazing how many people aren't comfortable in their own skin

A man would have to have serious issues to be uncomfortable doing this.

If the store clerk thinks about it at all, which is doubtful, they probably assume you are a man who has a wife or a girlfriend.

Interestingly, the guys that seem to be uncomfortable doing it are the ones who seem to have serious issues in other threads...

Sure, no big deal. Every place has self checkout anyway. If you were really bothered by it, just use that. Or, buy the tampons, along with condoms, some whip cream, and lube and be sure to hit up a staffed checkout line. Really make 'em wonder.

Maybe I'm just messed in the head, but whenever I have to buy 'embarrassing' things I always try to make the situation worse. Last time I bought condoms I also bought hemmorroid cream, an oprah magazine and a cucumber.

I have problems.

Even self checkout isn't completely anonymous. I went through one this week and there was an employee bagging the groceries at the end of the belt and also the woman behind me got a little too close while I was ringing up my stuff (I think she was in a hurry). Still, I don't see why it would be all that embarrassing for a man to buy menstrual products. Obviously, they aren't for YOU.

Having said that, I would personally be embarrassed about buying condoms in public and I've only ordered them online.
