    I do know one poor guy whose wife makes him drop his pants and sit to pee. I keep telling him that he really needs to either grow a pair or install a urinal.
    Either he should've improved his aim, cleaned up his spillage, or both, instead of expecting his wife to clean up after him like Mummy used to.

    The period glove was a very stupid idea so it's good that these clueless men apologized. It's been a long time since I've had to deal with menstrual bleeding, but I can't remember one time ever getting blood on my hands, and even if I did, I know how to wash my hands. I guess some men are scared of menstrual blood, but women really don't need a glove to remove tampons. We're not little babies. Good grief. We experience what is often one of the most painful things in life. It's called giving birth. Been there, done that. It a'int easy.

    Since one of you felt the need to mention sex toys.....the best female sex toys are the ones invented or at least influenced by women. A few years ago, the New York Times discussed some very interesting ones. Only a male would think that a woman would want a penis shaped vibrator. The ones that were advertised in the NYTimes were, if memory serves me correctly, like little butterflies the a woman could let vibrate over her clitoris. It even gave instructions how men could use them to add some fun when they were having sex with their female partners. There are a lot of men who could use some help in learning how to please a woman....but I digress.

    Now, since some of the men mentioned toilet seats, I feel I need to respond. A toilet seat is just that. It's a seat, not something that is supposed to be left in an abnormal position. I've been married to a very thoughtful man for about 40 years and not once did I almost fall into the toilet in the middle of a dark night because of him leaving the seat in an unnatural position. No! He knows where the seat belongs, plus he's super talented in that he can pee standing up or sitting down. Do you guys realize that in many cultures, men sit to pee? That's a good thing because sometimes old men are no longer able to stand and it's hard to learn to sit and pee when you've been standing all of your life. As a former nurse who sometimes cared for very old men, I know what I'm talking about. So, here's some advice for you old farts. Start practicing to pee while seated, just in case, you find yourself unable to stand in your old age.

    It is called the free market entrepreneurial economy. Stupid or not find something people will buy.

    I get it, women are pure men are pigs. That is the PC narrative.

    It is a witch hunt to root out al those evil misogynists, gone crazy.

    I saw an infomercial on TV for this place. For the woman a battery operated clit vibrator that can be worn during the day with an on off button in a pocket. For stress relief during the day.

    Statistic on how many men sit down to pee: 42%.

    The can't all be ball-less.

    Apropos of the general topic, I had a fried who was a chemist, and generally a total nerd, but who had a certain enthusiasm for sex, let us say. He removed his wife's tampons with his teeth. His wife told me that.

    So not all men are squeamish about women's menstrual cycles (I admit to be a bit squeamish personally).

    I read your link. I just want to assure the men that I never pressured my beloved husband to sit down to pee. He had already established that talent long before we met. He's multitalented in so many ways.

    There is a difference between sitting down to pee because you want to (I generally do in the morning before stepping into the shower cause I'm already naked and still groggy from sleep) and sitting down to pee because the wife orders you to.

    While I'm not squeamish about a women's menstrual cycle, I think your chemist friend is a bit of a freak.

    If women are tossing tampons aside outdoors then I guess there'd be a reason to think it's nasty, in a similar way to men walking around spitting. But with tampons it's mostly the litter that is the problem, not the body secretions. If you blow your nose into a kleenex in the woods, you don't throw it on the side of the trail. Not because there's snot on it but because of the kleenex.

    And about comparative grossness... What we need to do is put boxes on the heads of males who spit. Spitting on the pavement is pretty damn gross. This ejection of bodily fluids in public is a thing I've only ever seen done by males. And since I'm male, I have inside information on THIS one! Unless all the billions of persons who don't walk around spitting on the pavement are physiologically weird, there is no good reason for this.

    So, maybe I'll design a container that'll strap to men's necks...

    I'll admit I don't follow female menstruation issues so I'm a bit uninformed, but my question to the ladies is, if you do need to remove a tampon for some reason, and there is not a trashcan around, what do you do with it?

    A tampon can be flushed. However, some septic systems really don’t like it and some wastewater treatment plants (that were designed by men), don’t have a catcher for them. A pad needs to be put in the trash, so yes if there is no trash can it’s an issue. IME most public women toilets have a receptical in the toilet area for the disposable of used menstrual items, especially if the sewer system can’t handle the flushing of tampons. If I was on a hike, or a run, I would plan accordingly, new one before the trip or use a pad, or there is another reusable cup device that can last a long time.

    As far as gloves for use to remove and replace? Dumb. Am I supposed to carry those around in my purse to have at the ready whenever the monthly shows up? How about at work, I just take those pink things out and walk done the hall to the toilet in plain view? Nope. This is why there are sinks with soap and water available. Too much extra trash for no reason. If I wanted a glove I would just purchase those medical blue ones that you can buy at any pharmacy.
    Keep messing with 45
