I recently learned about Thinx, underwear designed for women on their periods to use as an alternative to pads or tampons. Each pair is purported to absorb as much as two tampons’ worth of liquid. Despite the obvious similarities to diapers, Thinx swears they are not diapers. Since my period was coming and I was A) out of tampons and B) out of underwear, I figured I’d order a “cycle set” from the Thinx website and bleed blood all over these non-diapers.

DAY 1: I put on a pair of “Cheeky” period underwear, for light days: little black, lace-trimmed panties that just barely covered my butt and would soak up a moderate amount of liquid. Like a diaper would. I walked around the office feeling a little bit ready-for-sex but also carefree like a baby.

DAY 2: “This is great!” I thought. “I don’t have to worry about leaks because I’m wearing a big, absorbent pad in the shape of underwear that I’ll just change when it gets too wet.”

Only ONE of these is a diaper. The other one just has the same shape and function as a diaper. (Photo credits: bambinodiapers.com and shellchicd.com)


DAY 3: I had two pairs of “Hiphuggers” (for heavy days). These are even sexier than Cheekies but also hold more liquid. The first pair worked so well that I wanted to try an experiment with the second pair. So I peed. Just a little bit. No problem! You can totally pee in these because of their special absorbent layers. Y’know, like the layers that soak up pee in a diaper. Then I caught my ass in the mirror and damn – I felt more confident and sensual than I ever have after peeing my pants.

DAY 5: Slipping the “Thong” over my thighs and onto my genitals was like being in an X-rated Pull-Ups commercial. I felt sexy because my ass cheeks were bisected only by a “sexy little piece of stretch lace,” but safe, because of the literal diaper beneath me.

When my period was over, I washed my Thinx panties and hung them up to dry. I appreciate that they’re recyclable and better for the environment, but I can’t help but wish there was a disposable version. Maybe something with sticky adhesives on the side that you could order in bulk? Oh yeah. That’s diapers. These are diapers.
