It has come to Bossy’s attention that Tampax recently changed their design. In order to determine the effectiveness of their newly launched product, Bossy is conducting a side-by-side comparison with Tampax’s classic tampon.
Lucky for her
readers reader Bossy still has ancient tampons in the bottom of her purse hermetically sealed for this investigation.
Bossy does not own the old product box and therefore isn’t sure what the previous tampons were made of, but did you know Tampax’s new tampons come with a List of Ingredients? And those ingredients are:
- Cotton and/or Rayon Fiber. Excuse me? Don’t we get to know which?
- Rayon and/or Polyester Overwrap. Right. And Bossy is a Blogger and/or Brain Surgeon.
- Cotton or Cotton/Polyester Thread. Like, when were they going to decide? Maybe before they printed it on a kazillion boxes?

Next Bossy assembled two identical drinking glasses with equivalent amounts of water which has been dyed with food coloring:
Then Bossy added gin to the glasses and passed out. The end.
Would Bossy leave you hanging in the middle of a
time-waster scientific experiment? Next Bossy flipped the tampons out of their cardboard applicators and studied the empirical data:
Then Bossy dropped the tampons into their respective glasses:
Next Bossy lifted the saturated tampons out of the field of inquiry in order to study the remaining fluid:
Does everyone see what Bossy sees? Measurable Evidence suggests the new Tampax absorbed slightly more than the product it replaced.
And here is the final step in the experiment:
While the old Tampon is definitely longer, the new Tampon expands to a thicker dimension. In closing Bossy enthusiastically recommends the New and Improved Tampax the next time your Food Coloring gets its period.
Bossy gives this product: Two Thumbs Up (your Va-jay-jay).
