Getting drunk from alcohol soaked tampons!
« on: 13/05/2008 15:21:11 »
On last weeks episode of CSI, one of the characters got drunk by soaking her tampons in vodka (pre-application). Is this possible?

As a firm believer in empirical study (and also as a non alcy drinker cos I hate the taste)........I am eager to try this out for myself !!


ooh !!....arrggh !!....hmmm..just wedging it in.....oooh !!...oooaarrggg !!!....ohhhh....(hic).......you no sumfink  ?(hic)...yor my beshtest (hic)...frend.................(hic).........

Ouch!!!!!!Lol!

Seriously.. I believe that medications administered though the vagina act fast due to absorption into the body quickly... so I think it may be possible however weird.. I believe it may enter the bloodstream very quickly that way.. so maybe it is possible .......but wouldn't one have to insert many before getting the desired effect!

I have heard this before and I find it difficult to believe for 2 reasons. I'm only qualified to discuss one of them. The quantity of alcohol required to raise a person's blood alcohol concentration to, for example, the UK drink driving limit is roughly of the order of 50 to 75 ml of vodka that's rather a lot to soak into 1 or even a number of tampons.
The second point (where I'm not qualified) is this, I know that straight vodka stings/ burns your mouth a bit and I can't help thinking that vodka soaked tampons would be sufficiently painfulto be unworthwhile.

Also, the usual given reason for adopting this unorthodox means of absorbing alcohol is that it avoids getting the smell of alcohol on your breath. If the alcohol is in the blood it will reach the lungs and be exhaled.

To me it sounds like a rather cruel joke- you tell some poor girl that this works then stand back and wait for the fireworks.
Anyone out there who wishes to try it in the "spirit" of science?

I agree with you.. It doesn't sound like a good idea to me.. If you have ever cleaned an abrasion with alcohol you wouldn't want to insert something like that intio such a tender area.. Yikes.. I wouldn't have even thought about that but I know that that would hurt as such and I also agree with the point about the amount which could be absorbed as I stated you could not do it with just one tampon... it would have to be many and a series and that would be horrible!

I believe some girlies frequent the site......It has been known that between applying lipstick, attempting to park a BMW X5 whilst on the phone........that some girlies do actually visit this site....why don't they try it ?.....they can get together and try it too en masse !...

NOW NOW.. Here I thought that your empirical study answered the question for us... How Gallant of you Sir Neil... such a stud to take on all of that torment for  and anguish for all us girlie's! LOL!!

We do so appreciate your diligence when it comes to experiments as such!

...But I don't have a "front bottom"...just a back one !! :-)

We need it empirically tested for real !!

I do believe that your test should suffice... LOL... Seems a bit like spiking a watermelon....How are you feeling? Have the effects worn off yet, or do you get better as you ferment age???

Eeewwwwwwwww! ...Although, at least by that route of absorption, if it's even possible to umm..., the alcohol would bypass the liver, and therefore metabolism by the liver, on the it's way to the heart to be distributed to the rest of the body.
