    I believe that is known as the old monkey fist trap.

  • Dang cold…

    yeah that makes sense. Perhaps they’d think I’m handicapped and keep me on for fear of being sued for wrongful dismissal. I’ll wear a medic alert bracelet that says I have severe leakbutt. Maybe they’ll give me a special chair?? Perhaps one with a bucket underneath it??

    I am wondering how Dooce uses the Keeper Cup to catch boogers from Leta’s runny nose – or was that a joke?

    Also, I have been using a diaphragm for years (not the same one!)during my period to avoid using paper products. And so I can have sex during my period.

    At work, there are a few private bathrooms – I definitely don’t rinse out my diaphragm in front of other people. If I lived in a hippie community (in which I used to live during college) it would probably not be a big deal.

    This is what it takes to use the diaphragm for this purpose – and also what I assume it would take if *I* used the cup.

    I choose a private single bathroom, put a couple of paper twoels down next to the sink and bring one with me to carry the diaphragm with, dump the diaphragm in the toilet, trying not to get my hands messy, pull up my pants as much as I can with one hand, go/waddle to the sink, turn the water on and rinse it out, put the diaphragm on the towel, wash my hands, walk back to the bathroom stall, and put it back in, try to keep my hands clean, come back to the sink and wash my hands again.

    But here’s the thing – if you are a heavy bleeder, and you are using this method, you have to put something in your pants to catch the continuous drip WHILE YOU ARE RINSING. I usually fold up a few squares of tp and put them in my underwear while I rinse. But I prefer not to do that during the heavy flow. Because there can be accidents.

    So it may be a savings for the paper products on tampons, but I think I use triple the paper towels for hand washing and resting the diaphragm on the counter, double the tp, so I have something in my pants while I go rinse. And double the water and soap for handwashing cause I have to do it twice. As opposed to once with changing tampons.

    Never realized this before.

    I definitely think we need to have a different name for the Keeper. The current name is misleading, and may cause people to think they need to store that which *should not* be stored.
    Therefore, I propose these new monikers:
    The Twat Tuba
    The Red Reservoir
    The Blood Basin
    Cuppa Jane
    and one just for Miz Striz:
    The Vampire Flask!

    Fran et al. re:The Keeper…still…I think someone needs to explain how dumping blood in a public sink does not create any health safety concern…and explain to me how you are able to wash out your keeper in a public bathroom without grossing out other people. (ie. co-workers)

    Suzy, Rachel, and Sim: Thanks for expounding on the advantages of the Keeper Menstrual Cup. It really is environmentally friendly and is better for the body than tampons. But it takes a unique woman to be able to handle the concept.

    A Keeper Cup!? Sounds like something you’d use to save up all of Leta’s mucus so you can present it to her on her 18th birthday.
