Women interested in honoring their menstrual cycle can have a field day on Etsy with tampon themed items. Crafters construct earrings, keychains, soap, and stamps for customers to sport around town. While many women may find the accessories bizarre and gross, reviews on the seller pages share rave reviews. Today I share the five most unbelievable bloody tampon gifts for sale.
The bloody Key Ring is sold “Limited Edition.” Etsy creator Her Designs Shop says,
“My tampon bullets represent the strength of women and our amazing bodies. We as women know how fragile periods can make us feel but these little tampon bullets are little reminders of the wonder of our incredible, strong and deliberate bodies.”
While the gross factor of the key chain is high, the product has 44 five star reviews.
Crafted by Crass Stamps the bloody tampon stamp appears to be a hit. Crass Stamps hand make all types of rubber stamps from farting photos, nipples, contraceptive pills, and the famed bloody tampon. Suggested uses for the stamp are for greeting cards, secret messages, pranks, stationary, and nightclubs.
Crass Stamps have more than 181 rave 5-star reviews.
Esty Shop Sick Soaps sells moisturizing glycerine soap tampons encased in clear soap. While the tampon may be made of soap, the string inside is real. The bars are available for purchase for $8.95 and take 1-2 weeks to ship. Bathers will experience a lovely champagne and strawberry scent as they scrub. Despite the oddness of the product, the vendor has 920 five star reviews.
For people that want to include their furry friends in the tampon fun, Meowadays crafts crotched bloody tampons stuffed with catnip. Sold for $18.00 the product is sure to be a hit for the kitties.
One reviewer said it best,
“I bought this toy for my girlfriends cat and oh my gawd….he freaking loves it. It’s disgusting and hilarious at the same time.”
For the women that want to celebrate the “feminine cycle,” tampon earrings make a bold statement. Weird Class sells authentic tampons strung to earring clips. The tampons dangle from a string. Each earring set is made by using Tampax Pearl tampons. They retail for a reasonable and naughty price of $6.66.
Weird Class has 20 five star reviews with one reviewer exclaiming, “She loved them!”
While many would never consider purchasing anything tampon related to jewelry, soap, or toys, Etsy shoppers are thrilled with these products. Women can even purchase crocheted reusable tampons if they so desire.
