Have you seen the memes on social media about sex rags or sex towels? They’re hilarious. You do know what I mean by a sex rag or sex towel, right? For those of you that are shaking your heads, a sex towel is exactly what it sounds like. Sure sex is fun, but it’s also really messy. And what better way to help with the clean up than an absorbent towel? Sex often requires some…well… oil to get the motor running, if you will. And in some cases there’s, well, an oil spill. Y’all get what I’m saying? I’m trying to be as delicate as possible here. Who am I kidding, we all heard W.A.P right? You get my point.
A sex towel has become a staple in most of our bedrooms, or some form of it. For an anniversary gift I actually purchased a funny one for my husband and I off of Etsy. And although the addition of a towel in our bedroom was welcomed and necessary, it often times wasn’t enough. But I thought I was the only one.
I’ve been in quarantine for six months now, and in the course of the past few months, I’ve tried a lot of new things. I’ve tried recipes, learned new skills and started a business. And…I also tried some new underwear. I’m really into living as green as I can and I came across period underwear. I’ve been hesitant to use them but I ordered some to try since I figured, what better time than now? I’m stuck at home anyway. I ordered some from Knix. They sell a line of “leak proof period panties.” When they arrived, I was still a bit nervous to take the leap and to try them during my period. As I researched a bit more, I saw a review from a customer who used them after sex. A light bulb moment happened and I decided to give it a try.
Yeah, a sex towel is great, but an after-sex underwear? Who knew? A few days later I decided to give it a go. Normally after sex I’d makeshift something or switch out my underwear a few times. However none of that was necessary. There was no mess! The panties were absorbent, just like they were described. They were comfortable too and come in so many styles and sizes. I now have drawer filled with them right next to our towels for easy clean up. It’s a game changer. The only downside is washing them.
They are machine washable, which is so great however it’s suggested that no fabric softener is used. You also have to be careful when it comes to drying. They can be tumbled dried on low or you can lay them flat to dry. The hardest part for me was to remember to avoid fabric softener and to let them air-dry. I normally throw all my clothes in one load and use a detergent with fabric softener. I dry most of my clothes in my dryer on high. I know, those of you that separate clothes are probably hyperventilating. But I haven’t had an issues doing things this way.
So in order to keep them in working order, I now have a separate pile just for them. Other than that minor issue, I’m sold and now use them all the time.
