My brother has bought that for his wife and me.
My other brother has bought that for his girlfriend.
My boyfriend will definitely buy that for me.

I would do that for my girlfriend. Why not?

Each guy I've dated in adulthood has not had a problem doing this if need be. My SO actually ran to the 24-hour grocery store near his house to get ibuprofen for me in the middle of the night when I had cramps and he was out of Advil at his place.

Why wouldn't they do it? What's the big deal?

I've never had to ask. I always buy a few months worth of supplies on sale and have never had an emergency. I also always carry a few tampons in my purse, and me and my lady coworkers have a few in the office just in case.

I do know my ex NEVER would have done it. He asked me to keep my supplies out of his sight at all times so I kept them in my office instead of the bathroom.

My Dad doesn't care, and my brother actually buys his own because he gets nose bleeds when it gets really hot and uses small tampons to plug his nose up...which is why I've called tampons lady plugs for many years now. If a 15 year old boy can buy tampons for himself without any issue, a grown man shouldn't have a problem with it either

I usually use a cup, but my bf and I were traveling one time and staying at my grandma's, and I got caught off guard. Plus, I had a broken foot. So I asked them to go to the store for me.

They come back looking completely dazed and talking about the overwhelming multitude of options available, and hoping they got something useful. My grandma says, 'You ask a man and a post-menopausal woman to go to the store...'

I've done it several times for my wife. I will admit to buying other items along with it so it doesn't stand out.
