A small nuclear-warhead shaped bunch of cotton inside of either a flushable cardboard or pearly kinda plastic applicator, with a little cotton string on the end to pull the tampon out with. Hurts sometimes. Always wrapped in a noisy plastic wrapper. We chicks put these in our fish tacos when we get our rag. Changed every 8 hours, with an extended use posing a risk for TSS (toxic shock syndrome).
Yeah Tom. Thats a tampon. And no, you can't help me put it in.
