I read an article in Forbes Magazine this morning and my jaw literally dropped.
I am convinced that the story is actual bullsh**. BUT the author of the Forbes article says she has spoken directly to the guy making the claims.
There is a website, that says the goal of the company is to 'better the lives of women around the world.'
There is an actual patent for the product. You can see that HERE.
OK, now I've provided you all of that, I will summarize what I read this morning.
Basically, a Kansas chiropractor named Daniel Dopps, CEO and President of a company called Mensez (I first screamed 'bullsh**' after hearing that name) Technologies says he has a new solution to an age old female problem.
The monthly period.
Dopps says he has created a 'feminine lipstick' for your private parts, which will basically, when applied, glue your vagina shut, to stop your Aunt Flo from exiting the body. When you use the bathroom to urinate, that urine apparently dissolves the glue and everything gets deposited nice and tidy without a mess. Then you reapply to glue things shut again until you have to go again.
The end result, there's no need for tampons, pads, diva cup, whatever you use for that time of the month.
There was a Facebook post making the rounds as well, here is that screenshot because the company's profile 'isn't available right now.' Dopps says the Facebook page was hacked by critics.
When the Forbes author inquired when the product would be available, Dopps wasn't specific and would only say that only a few women have actually tried it. But he's hopeful that a company like Procter & Gamble will like his idea enough to buy and manufacture it.
What has been hilarious is some of the questions that have been posed to Dopps and some of his answers to them. You can read those in the Forbes piece.
He's even been called a misogynist, a claim that he denied on Facebook with the following response.
"You as a woman should have come up with a better solution than diapers or plugs, but you didn't. Reason being women are focused on and distracted by your period 25% of the time, making them far less productive than they can be. Women tend to me more creative then men, but their periods that stifle them and play with their heads."
Despite all of this...I'm still calling bullsh** on this story!
