Ew, Ew, Ew! Julio just sent us over a link to some new earth friendly menstruation device called the DivaCup. Now the menstrual cup itself is nothing new, it dates way back to the 1930's (which sounds more apropos than in the 2000's), but the DivaCup has expanded on that theory to be latex-free, BPA-free, plastic-free, it has no dyes, colors or additives, is comfortable, reliable, clean, convenient, easy-to-use, and can be worn up to a whopping 12 hours at a time!

"The DivaCup is a non-absorbent menstrual cup that simply collects menstrual flow. It is inserted in the vagina and sits at the lower base of the vaginal canal. It is worn internally, yet because it is soft and smooth, it cannot be felt nor will it leak when inserted properly.

The DivaCup is the most clean and convenient method of feminine hygiene protection. No need to touch the flow. It is worn low in the vagina, not near the cervix, so it is easy to remove. No mess!

The DivaCup ends hassles with unreliable disposables in endless absorbencies, shapes and styles. It is perfect for all activities – giving women true freedom without the worry, guessing and unreliability that disposable feminine hygiene products pose.

The DivaCup can be worn for up to 12 hours before emptying, washing and reinserting for use for another 12 hours. It can be used for light or moderate flows and is emptied more often to accommodate heavy flows. Perfect for overnight use.

The DivaCup’s expert, proprietary, patent-pending features make it comfortable and assures ease of use and reliability. Perfect for traveling, running, biking, hiking, dancing, camping, swimming, diving, scuba, yoga, extreme sports and more..."

If you're tired of those pesky Tampons and Maxi-Pads try the DivaCup, it's available at several locations in Jacksonville including both Native Sun's.

I thought this article might be about a pageant that I would easily be able to win! Thanks for the fake-out.

After reading the narrative for this product, I am considering swearing off ever sticking my tongue up one of those things again. I am torn, but eeeewwwww!
