The other issue (aside from less blood on hands) is that the applicator is smoother and slips inside much more easily. The tampon seems to rub uncomfortably on its way up. I know the blood should be sufficient lubricant, but it's not for me.

But to each her own!

P.S. "Fresh" wouldn't be a word I'd use to describe a used tampon... they and pads are both pretty "ripe" when saturated.

i seem to recall that when i used tampons, it would be extremely difficult to get the thing in because of all the slipping. they make these measly little grips on the end that you're supposed to be able to grasp so that the cardboard/plastic doesn't slip, but i recall having a great deal of problems with slippage.

on a side note, i remember walking into the bathroom one day many years ago, and my sister had left a used tampon sitting on the edge of the bathtub. gross!!
