For some men, the idea of buying tampons resides firmly in their nightmares, but according to Bec Judd and Monty Dimond, it’s one that’s as common as can be in their respective houses.
Speaking on their radio show, The 3pm Pick-Up, both women said their partners have no qualms about heading to the shops to pick up their sanitary products. The problem is, ah, what they decide to pick up.
“I have sent Sam down to get my tampons on several occasions when I get stuck, but no matter how many directions or instructions I give him he always brings back the wrong ones,” Dimond told the program, with both women agreeing it’s a little “like a lolly store” with “different colours, sizes and brands”.
Judd says her husband, Chris, is also obliging when it comes to shopping for tampons.
