According to my incredible sources (the internet) tampons were used as early as 15th century BCE, back then they were made of wool. Ancient Japanese ladies used them too but they were made out of paper and the Hawaiian ladies used a type of fern.
We still use them today but we were paying a luxury tax on them to date because I know next to my Longchamp bag and my Cartier diamonds my tampons are at the top of the ‘luxurious things I own’ list.
Anyway even though the Government was making $30 million-a-year out of it they’ve let it go. It’s the end, period.
