I’M going to buck the trend and say Tampax should be banned. Not the TV commercial that recently generated a paltry 84 complaints and was pulled – how Oirish – but the products themselves.

As a 46-year-old woman, I’ve tried all the sanitary products at some stage, and I can tell you that Tampax are the most over-priced and the applicator is more of a hindrance than a help.

I’m sure the company is overjoyed with all the positive publicity. The ad in question was a simple, conversation-style commercial designed to educate young women on how to use tampons properly.
