Why don’t Chinese women use tampons?;
Pursuant to my recent post about why Chinese women don’t use tampons, I forgot to share a compelling piece of gossip. I recently had a friend from the US in town for a movie shoot (a huge, major studio movie that has parts of it being shot in China.) She told me that of all the supplies that their on-set medic brought to China, it was the tampons that somehow disappeared en route. She wasn’t sure if the tampons were in the shipment that he shipped ahead of time into China, or if they were part of his luggage, but either way, they, for reasons unknown, were apparently confiscated by customs.
