Sujeiry’s Pepa Talks: Why I Don’t Wear Tampons


Sujeiry’s Pepa Talks: Why I Don’t Wear Tampons

Tampons. They remain a mystery to me. As much as I have tried to get used to their presence when Sujeiry wiggles one in, I reject it instantly.

My first experiece with a tampon was at 27 years old. Always a maxi pad user, I feared having anything in such close proximity, other than a pene. But Sujeiry was on vacation in Miami. Aunt Flow came for a visit and the monthly toxins came whooshing out.

And I knew that from that day forward, the tampon would be my new enemy. The tampon wasn’t as sneaky as The Queef but he still unwelcome.
