Dear Poll: Do You Get Embarrassed Buying Stuff For Down There?

Whether it’s pads, lube, or hemorrhoid cream, there are a host of products designed to treat the lady business and her nearby neighbor and most of them conjure up some, ahem, embarrassing possibilities. We’re all adults, I know, but I'm sure more than a few of us get a little pink in the cheeks when our shopping basket includes something for our nether regions. I won’t specify what, but ladies, let me ask you this: do you get embarrassed buying stuff for your private parts?

HAHAHA, yes Cubadog, I feel the same way about buying tampons and ONLY tampons, or ONLY something more, YES I'm impulsive and can't plan more than a day in advance, sorry!

I'm pretty much over it by now. I remember when I was younger, if the cashier was a 'boy' I would run out and go to another drugstore. But then I remembered I'm not the only girl in the world and we all need to buy stuff sometimes!!

Tampons and such don't bother me at all anymore. Sometimes condoms and lube do, but since I usually shop at Target there are lots of clerks to choose from. I choose one that doesn't look too uptight. lol

Nah, doesn't bother me. I do laugh when I buy funny combinations of things, though. For instance: a watermellon, a shovel, and lube.

Yes, sometimes!! Like a couple weeks ago when I was waiting in line buying tampons at the grocery store & the guy in front of me was buying tons of bloody meat that dripped on the floor... I was really grossed out but was also afraid people would see the tampons & the blood and think one thing!! EEEWWW

Anything other than tampons is embarrassing to me.

Tampons, pads no...In highschool yes I was so embarassed I would not even tell my MOM I needed them. I babysat every weekend so I would stock up at her house (she never cared)... Then one day I walked to CVS and liberated myself Condoms, I hardly ever buy but I did have an embarassing experience. One night I was going to visit my BF I stopped at the gas station (about 11 p.m.) go inside and start walking up and down the aisles. There was a male clerk working, he asked me could he help me and I said no, then he got this all knowing look and smiled and said "Oh we don't carry those". So I went to the BP station across the street which after 10 only has a walk up window so I had to ask the MALE clerk to get them for me. Over the speaker he asks me "which kind?" I tell him "Whatever, I don't care" I pay and as I am walking away through the speaker he says "HAVE FUN!" Feminine wash, a little embarassing. I never needed the other stuff but I would prob be embarrassed

Beh. I got no shame in my num num game. That especially goes for my mum - when she needs her "damn coochie cream" she'll scream it to the rooftops if need be. Me, I have no problem with buying condoms, tampons, pantyliners, lube, itch cream...if I need it, then damn it, I'm buying it. If anything, I'm more afraid to buy sexual toys [but even that would be kind of fun]. OH...I am reminded of one shopping experience of mine. I was at walgreens to do a wee haul, and I was about two dollars over. The cashier said, "DON'T WORRY BABEH I'LL FIX IT" and she took my tampons and pantyliners back, got cheaper ones, and paid for my change. I thought it was so funny. The stuff she picked out wasn't half bad either! :D

Tampons are nothing. Other items such as lube and preparation H and laxatives or yeast infection cream are iffy unless I have more things to buy. I'd be embarrassed to buy just that one item.

Well I've only needed to buy tampons, so no worries here

That's a best buy cart in the picture haha. I'd like to know what embarrassing products she'd be buying there...

i worked as a cashier for a year in highschool, and honestly, i don't really notice what people buy, i just scan it and move on.i never even really pay attention to the person buying it and i'd forget the person's face minutes later. so i'm not embarrased at all about the stuff i buy

sweetpeabrina ~ I'm the exact same. I still get very embarrassed and I write 'tissues' instead of tampons. If I need to buy hair removal products or wax, I use an abbreviation. Yup, uptight, I know.

nothing really embarrasses me now unless of course I were to run into my grandma with lube, condoms and douche hanging out my basket! however, as a teen, my mom used to get me to buy her pads... well of course she uses the big boats that come in huge packaging... that used to really embarrass me. I remember trying to talk her into tampons or ultra-thins :rotfl:

Yes! I won't even go to a male cashier if I have any products for my products. I need to get over it, but I'm still embarrassed. I won't even write tampons on my shopping list in case someone sees it. I'll write "baking supplies." :oops:
