Mooncup is a silicone menstrual cup that is a convenient, environmentally friendly alternative to tampons. It is estimated that women on average use 11,000 tampons during their lifetime, and sadly those end up in landfills or the sea. A Mooncup, on the other hand, can be worn for up to 8 hours, and because they're made of silicone, it will last you years and years. With all the money you'll save by not buying tampons, you can buy yourself something you'll actually enjoy... like a new vibrator!
Mooncups are great for women who suffer from skin sensitivities as they don't cause dryness or irritation the way tampons can. The Mooncup comes in 2 sizes - Size A is for women over 30 and all women who have given birth vaginally. Size B is for women who are under 30 and have not given birth vaginally.
You can rinse your Mooncup between uses, or for a more thorough clean, you can boil it or soak it in a diluted sterilising solution.
Erika from Oh Joy Sex Toy is a huge fan of the Mooncup, and you can watch an adorable interview she and her husband gave about it below:
