Why boys shouldn't go into the "little girls room"

At Mr K-E's office they have separate toilets for men and women on every floor. As their male/female staff ratio is skewed, the men's toilet is a lot busier, and so it's accepted that men can use the ladies toilet. ( I should explain that they are actually two separate rooms complete with washbasins etc, not cubicles)

Anyway, yesterday Mr K-E and his fellow male colleagues were all in a tizz because someone had stuck a leaflet promoting "mooncups" on the back of the ladies toilet door. And these so-called "tough-guys" were fascinated and disgusted in equal measure. Mr K-E looked green when he was telling me about it, which I found highly amusing.

(Gentlemen, you might want to stop reading at this point)

If you don't know what a mooncup is, it's essentially a reusable device for women to use instead of tampons or sanitary napkins. It's supposed to be more environmentally friendly, a "greener" alternative to the normal products. You can read all about it here.

I know about all about them because there are always leaflets or stickers advertising them in ladies public toilets. But really, I can't imagine anyone other than hardened eco-maniacs using them as they just seem so messy. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

So boys, stay away from ladies' toilets. You never know what manner of horrible things you will find in there.

Never heard of it until now. It does seems very messy to use. I wonder who would want to use it...Not me obviously.
