The point the author (and other menstrual cup fans) seem to be overlooking is that it is not always possible to have ready access to a sink twice a day to empty, rinse, and wash the cup. If I am camping, or at music festivals or other events that only have porta-potties, then I’m stuck with pads or tampons (and trying to dispose of them discreetly).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
