I have always used tampons - usually the Tampax brand, but sometimes the supermarket 'own brand' version thereof. I actively dislike Lil-lets. After putting a tampon in I tuck the string up into my vagina, just out of the way. When I was younger I don't recall ever tucking the string - I always just left it out and it never bothered me. Except on the odd occasion when I went without underwear and only then because it tickled my thighs. These days, underwear or not, I find I have to tuck the string or I feel it tugging between my undies and body. Or, worse still, it sneaks its way back and gets between my butt cheeks and tugs there! Not comfy! So... Am I a total weirdo?
