Friday Find: The Camp Gyno

9 Aug

It’s that time of the month. It’s time once again time to talk tampons.

First off, this whole “let’s romanticize having your period and make some sexy yet modern tampon delivery service” nonsense must stop.

There’s nothing sexy about having your period, unless you’re turned on by bloating, cramps, and cystic acne.

And did I mention there was already tampon delivery service? It’s called Amazon Subscribe and Save.

But I digress.

The latest in the tampon delivery service proliferation is HelloFlo.

Which is aimed at tween and teen girls. As if being 12 years old wasn’t bad enough, now your mother can send you boxes of tampons.

(And let’s be reasonable, a slogan of “tampon delivery. period.” just isn’t passing as good creative these days.)

(And neither is the Wendy look-alike cartoon character they are using on the website.)

Will you be choosing light, heavy, or medium flow? Excuse me, “flo” as they put it. Dropping the “w” does not a sexy period make.

But I do have to say they have a pretty bitching commercial.

Because having a 12 year old make it rain with tampons is pretty freaking hysterical.
