A new form of alcohol abuse is getting famous in Germany among teens – vodka tampons. They use vodka soaked tampons to get drunk quickly and hide the smell – without having alcohol in their breath as they are inserted vaginally (for women) or anally (for men). The risks are plenty – infection, damage to vaginal/anal walls, etc.

“I believe this is very dangerous,” head of a children’s clinic in Singen told southern German paper Südkurier last week. “For us this is a new thing.”

In early March a 14-year-old girl collapsed during a street festival in Konstanz, apparently highly intoxicated from using a vodka tampon, the paper reported.Source: www.thelocal.de


It is also known as "slimming" and is supposed to have stated in US.

"Slimming" is the vaginal or anal insertion of a liquor (usually vodka) soaked tampon for the purpose of rapid intoxication.

Thanks to a few personal blogs that I read, I learned about a new fad; slimming. From what I can surmise (thank you YouTube), slimming is the vaginal or anal insertion of a vodka-soaked tampon in order to get drunk. ShamelesslySassy‘s blog post first caught my eye, and then I read about Slacker-Moms-R-Uspersonal experience learning of this new trend on a school field trip.

I am not surprised that teens are looking for new ways to hide drinking from their parents. This has been happening for generations. I am, however, surprised to think that teens are willing to endure the burning that a vodka-infused tampon must elicit. I’m highly interested in learning more about the actual physical dangers that putting a tampon soaked in vodka can have on a woman’s vagina/vaginal opening and/or the anus. It can’t be good.

Parents, if you notice that your daughter is suddenly going through more tampons than normal, or that your son is very willing to hang out in the feminine product aisle, you might want to start asking some pretty personal questions.Source: healthysexedu.blogspot.com


This is just crazy! Despite the obvious risk of ruining the future years of their lives, some teenagers (from almost any generation) are willing to do almost anything.
