Alright, so you’re a teenage kid and are looking for ways to sneak a little vodka into your system. Solution? Well, let’s just say that there’s no vodka cocktail or vodka mixed drink needing to be created for this method.
Yes, the title of this story is EXACTLY what you think it is. Vodka Tampons: Girls soaking their tampons in vodka, and placing it inside their… “female area”. And don’t think guys aren’t getting in on the action either. Apparently they are sticking the tampons in the only hole they can that’s below the belt.
Why would kids even think about doing this? “[It’s a] quicker high, they think it’s going to last longer, it’s more intense,” Dr. Dan Quan from Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix. By placing the tampon inside their vagina or rectum, the individual is able to absorb the vodka straight into the bloodstream. This sounds good in theory, but according to Dr. Lisa Masterson, co-host of “The Doctors,” this method can “literally destroy the vagina.”
Accounts of soaking tampons in alcohol have circulated for years and it has been somewhat of a urban myth or legend among kids. I mean, who would actually consider doing this? Well, according to members of the Phoenix community, it is happening more than you think. This is a crazy world we live in and people are so unpredictable.
