Where to find the decorative chain tampon in bay area?

Postby Jing » Sat Jul 16, 2016 2:20 am

Hi, I just found out I will have my full period in Burning Man this year. I heard some women wear tampons with decorative chain and it's a pretty cool idea. So how can I find this tampons in Bay area? Or I need to DIY ?

Welcome to eplaya.
Normally I ask first time posters to tell everyone more about themselves---but that's not the case here. We already know too much.
Maybe you could just keep everyone up to date in your search for the decorative tampons.
See you on the playa. 8)

Oh those things... I usually get them at Madame Bootstrap's down in the Tenderloin, next to the jalapeño lube.

No Lucky. (You made me laugh). It comes in a variety pack. Bells, whistles, blinkys, skulls, playing cards, hair ties, chapstick, pokemon figures, Mr Potato Head, foreign money, geologist specimens, Holiday decor, (like Easter eggs and Xmas garland) etc....Very festive.

As Fig Jam is so fond of saying, "Build your Burn, don't buy it".

Go by your local Dollar store, buy yourself some do-dads and tie them to the strings.

Homemade ones would be so much more decorative, personal and interesting than ol' generic store bought ones.

The original poster, (Jing) was just having a bit of fun with us. The idea of decorative tampon strings is so far out there. Even the burner community couldn't get behind this concept. Maybe I'm just old fashioned. No greycoyote. Not up there. Dangling between your legs as an adornment. I too like the visual of Mr Potato head bobbing along while you dance at Districk or bouncing on the bike seat. Hey GI Joe or star wars figures would be good too. OK. I'm officially done posting on this thread. Thanks Jing. It's been real.

I'm always attracted to any thread that emulates American politics. Give me a full-power race to the bottom, lots of misquotes, an utter lack of substance, plenty of tacky innuendo, and an overpowering odor like day-old fish and I am SO there.

(Now if I could just sneak in a backhanded swipe about Unjon or Capt GD, I'd be giddy to the point of collapse).

Wheeeee!!!!!!!

My powerful thigh chub would crush any decor attached to a tampon string.

But that is all in the past. Do we have resources for flat old tata dangles?

Each roll has about 1,000 stickers on it. How many would you like?

Last year I brought a roll of smiley stickers and passed them out for nipple cover-ups. Very stylish and well received. It made people smile. :D

Well, I think the boobs are better off bare, rather than take a chance on contributing to MOOP. Yeah,...that's the ticket.

Phew,..imagination reset and the world is beautiful again. :D

Seems like not so many people took this question that seriously. I guess I need to figure that out by myself than. Thank you for all your responds.

Guys who answered my question here, some seems don't know how a tampon works and where is the tampon chain goes. You can google about it. It is a great invent.

I'm not a native English speaker so it took my time to read and even figure out your answer is actually a joke. It's ok to laugh but some real information is more helpful for me. (some jokes are not funny, it's disappointed when you spent sometime but found out it's just a lame joke)

And I don't think tampon chain idea is too much for BM. It's a cool thing to bring Period-this sort of taboo topic, open to public. Something you may be are shy or embarrassed to talk about it, on the playa you can make it more like an art and/or a joke. It's about express yourself and open mind, very BM for me.
