A Good Husband Is Willing to Buy His Wife Tampons

by Sasha Brown-Worsham

tampon buying husbandThere comes a moment in every relationship or marriage in which the woman is out of tampons and the man is on his way to the store. What happens next is anybody's guess, but in my opinion, it will (and should) make or break the relationship.

The only right response from a man in this case is: "Sure, honey. What brand and absorbency?" Anything resembling being grossed out, horrified, or humiliated is grounds for a breakup. For real. If he wants to be an adult male, in love with an adult woman, then sometimes he is going to have to buy feminine products for his lady. That's love.

This discussion is currently happening on CafeMom, and most of the women seem to agree with me. Their husbands buy tampons from time to time and it's really no big deal. But I have heard different things from women in the past.

Some women say their husbands are too embarrassed to buy them. I will say that very early on in our relationship, when my husband was young and immature, he made jokes about it. He did it, but he was clearly not into the idea. As he has matured, he has gotten used to it.

It's like anything else in marriage -- holding a woman's purse while she shops, having sex on her period, or getting her pickles at 3 a.m. when she is pregnant. You just accept these things if you are a grownup man married to a grownup woman.

Now granted, this isn't something I ask every time. Mostly I get them myself. But it has come up and he has done it. Because he is a good husband.

Besides, a man buying tampons CLEARLY knows his way around a lady's parts, right? I mean, I don't ask just anyone to buy feminine products. I ask my partner. In other words, a man buying tampons is obviously getting laid. He should be proud, not embarrassed.

In fact, most women would be impressed that a man is willing to do so, and if a man makes fun of him, well, it's obvious he is in the minority. Personally, if I were a dude, I might buy tampons just to pick up women (OK, I am joking. Mostly). But seriously? In what other aisle would you find so many women? And in what other aisle would you have the opportunity to prove what an enlightened man you are?

It says: "I am comfortable with my own sexuality. How YOU doing?" That's hot, man.
