I've read about this, and now I've heard about this first hand from a number of parents who have had to deal with the consequences of this very very dangerous technique girls use to "drink." This is very gender specific. Although I just read about boys using this technique using their rectum as a receptical. (I warned you it would be icky)
Here is what girls do, they soak tampons in vodka, and now for the ick factor, they insert these vodka bloated tampons into their vagina. I know, you are cringing with disgust and fear.
Here is the why girls think this is OK:
- They won't be wasting calories on alcohol
- They won't have booze-breath, which is great when they get home from a dance or party and have to greet their parents.
- they can get buzzed really fast, since the alcohol goes directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system.
- They don't throw up..again because the volume of alcohol that goes into their body, which normally would go through their digestive system, and make them sick and and throw up the over abundance of booze is bypassed.
Here is why this is extremely dangerous:
