Friends don’t let friends use outdated period products
Looking for some tips on how to talk about Flex Disc? Here’s a simple guide:
For decades we’ve been told not to discuss our personal lives with our professional connections. But what do you do when you know the free bathroom tampons are doing a disservice to your entire customer service department? You’ve gotta just dive in.
Try kicking off the conversation during your next team lunch by asking what your coworkers’ go-to products are. When it’s your turn, bring up your love of Flex. Talk about the benefit of 12-hour wear and how they’ll never have to shove their tampon up their sleeve walking past the IT department again – because they won’t ever have to change Flex Disc at work!
Your health-obsessed neighbor/spin instructor/whatever:
Hit ‘em with the facts, they love that.
- Flex is the only internally worn product not linked to TSS
- It’s hypoallergenic and free of BPA, phthalates, and natural rubber latex
- It doesn’t affect your vaginal pH
- Bonus: Flex is vegan!
Just break it down. Get real deep into your favorite benefits like the unlimited period sex, the fact that you can (still) sleep naked during your period, your ability to twerk on all 52 Friday nights without worry, or (better yet) just bring up the fact that you no longer have to pull your string to the side when you pee.
And bring wine. Everything’s better with wine.
Your bestie who you just met at the bar:
Drop some knowledge about the history of tampons. Something along the lines of, “Look, I like vintage as much as the next guy, but vintage for my vagina? No thank you…”
Most people are shocked to find out that tampons were invented by a man in the 1930s. And that there has been almost zero innovation in periods EVER SINCE! Meanwhile, we’re putting people on the moon and robots are replacing our jobs. You’ll bond over your love for advancing women’s health.
Your new relationship (or situationship):
When you’re done feeling out whether or not that person has the right intentions, let them in on your secret for mess-free period sex. Oral included.
Your friend who just got engaged:
We’re pretty progressive over here and realize that someone’s wedding may not actually be the biggest day of their life but, regardless, we want to help make it more enjoyable.
12-hour wear, mess-free period sex, and leak-free protection are a big deal for brides (and TBH, bridesmaids). No one wants to have to worry about changing a tampon during a wedding reception, or leaking on that $$$$ dress.
Your friend or family member who just had a baby:
Your body changes a lot after having a baby and what was once okay for period management might now be completely intolerable.
Comfort postpartum is a must, which is why Flex is so great for new moms. Talk about how Flex sits in a completely different place in the body, is great for heavy or light menstrual flow, doesn’t leave you with that scratchy feeling after removal, and lets you focus on being a parent instead of changing your tampon every 4 hours.
