As I am placing my own order for Softcups (on Amazon.ca) I realized that I never actually shared with my dear readers the product that so amazingly improved my sex life during that dreaded time of the month. And as I am not a selfish person and have often been accused of oversharing, I figured that this would not only keep in line with that, but also share the little secret to my ability to have sex, pretty much whenever I choose to. So without further ado, let me introduce you to Soft Cups. Firstly, I should mention that I love them to pieces and yes, if you click the link and add it to your shopping cart you will be helping both of us out which is a win/win. And no, I am not being paid directly to sponsor them I just share products I love from time to time.
I started using soft cups about 3 years ago. And I will be quite honest, I initially bought them because I was just damn tired of tampons. There was a lot of hype going around regarding diva cups, and I wanted to learn more as I tend not to rush into new things especially when it involves entering my body. Upon reading a bunch of new products in the market, I found something that totally intrigued me, Soft cups. These stood out because they claimed that you could have sex while wearing them. And well, how could I not race out to try them?
For you see, that has always been a great difficulty for me sexually. I want complete control over my body, even during that time of the month. And spontaneous sex is just not always possible during the messy time and that puts limits on my sex life. Carrying around products like No More Wet Spots Blanket (which has a really sexy banner on my website) is practical and opposite to the whole spontaneity that I crave. Rolling up to a party with super sexy, post sex hair and that healthy glow is incredible and I want that whether or not I am on shark week. So I bought my first box and then let it sit on bathroom floor for 3 cycles while I mustered the courage to stick one in the first time (I told you I don’t race into these things).
And let me tell you, the very first time, was a total mindfuck for me. I followed the instructions to a T and at hour 12 when it came time to switch it out (did I mention that you get to wear it for 12 hours??? So amazing) I won’t even lie, it got stuck. Well, not stuck per se, but there is definitely a trick to breaking the seal on it. It sits right below your cervix so the seal is amazing and offers very minimal leakage but as I said, there is a bit of learning curve with getting it out. But my goodness once that curve is over come it is a game changer. I do not feel it at all during the day. I can have sex whenever I want, and being so active in the summers, it is a dream to use, especially when camping. Only having to use a real washroom in the morning and evening is completely do able, whereas with tampons, it is an every time you pee ordeal. And let’s not even mention pads during the hiking/camping season, ugh!
Whenever I have sex with new people, I always tell them I am wearing one, because there is still the chance of leakage, and there are few positions that my partner can feel it. But over all, it has been a resounding success and a remarkable improvement to me holding more power over my own body and sexual needs. So, I would highly recommend you giving them a try if you are ready for a change.
Now if only we could do something about this whole bra thing…
