    Brothers ... if the lady in your life (Mother, Sisters, Significant Other) needed sanitary products, couldn't go get them herself ... and you were the only one that could ... would you?

    Would you go to the store and buy these things for her?

    Been there & done that. I've bought tampons, maxi-pads, and diapers. In truth I do the grocery shopping for my family, because my wife doesn't drive. I really don't see the big deal about a man buying women's sanitary products...obviously they aren't for me. In addition, I am not trying to impress anyone, so again...no big deal!

    I read this and laughed my head off. My brother and father, uncles, etc, would never buy this stuff for us. My uncle used to get woozy looking at the advertisements! I can honestly say that I haven't come across a man yet that would pick some up for me, but by the same token, I don't recall asking one to do so. Hats off to you fellas who recognize that it is natural and doesn't affect your manhood at all. :wave:

    When Mom Said "Go to the Store," YOU WENT!!

    Mom, would send me to the store to buy those products for her as a young fella and now days it is nothing except as food for a possible joke. In this regard, I think, most men have evolved.

    I have no problem doing it when asked. I would prefer a woman to pick it up herself if at all possible. I don't think taking it to the checkstand is the problem though. It's looking in the aisle and reading each package to make sure it's the right size...if it has "wings" or not and so forth. I don't want to stand in the aisle reading maxi pad boxes. But if I am asked to I will do it.

    If women can wash men's soiled...ummm...undergarments, then why should men be squeamish about purchasing products for women's menstrual cycles? As adult men, they spend more time "down there" than a tampon or maxi-pad does, so why not? :confused:

    Just asking... :angel1:

    hahahahahaha ... :lol:

    this topic was brought up in voice chat yesterday ... i don't know who brought it up ... :look: ... but there was a Brother there, that squimmed and squirmed ... hehehe ... never coming out and saying NO ... but had all these reasons why he should never have to do such a thing ... i was surely left with the impression that a Sister would be use'n toilet paper, paper towels, or newspaper ... :lol: ... if she was wait'n on him to look out for her ... smh ... but Sister Queenie ... you have brought up an interesting point, as usual ... hmmmm ... maybe he's never spent any time down there and doesn't love her in all of her fullness ... maybe he's ... uhhh ... uhhh ... gosh ... no ... it can't be ... i refuse to believe it ... :wink:

    Thanks everyone for responding and a :toast: to the REAL MEN in da hizzouse!
