Police Warn Of Growing Teen ‘Vodka Tampon’ Use | Disinformation

Time to check in on the latest youth trends: teens (both girls and boys) are increasingly using liquor-soaked tampons as a novel and stealthy means of getting drunk. A number of Facebook pages have popped in honor of the practice, called “slimming”. Ah, kids with their crazy fads! The Local enlightens on the scourge every parent should be most worried about:

Police in southern Germany warned this week of a dangerous new form of alcohol abuse among teens – using tampons soaked in vodka to get drunk quickly and hide the smell. The practice poses grave health risks, they said.

In early March a 14-year-old girl collapsed during a street festival in Konstanz, apparently highly intoxicated from using a vodka tampon, the paper reported. Youth researchers have since found out that this form of alcohol abuse is trendy in the region.

The trend arose among teens in the United States, where it is known as “slimming.” But it has reportedly caught on in Scandinavia and other places where alcohol is difficult for young people to acquire.

[Police] warn girls that the alcohol could damage vaginal walls and increase the risk of infection. Boys have reportedly also been using tampons anally.

Now I’ve seen it all. Kids, I know they just banned a lot of the legal highs y’all had come to enjoy, but really, this aint the way to go. Go get some whipped cream and inhale the nitrous oxide or something, and then take some B12 to make up for the B12 deficiency it causes if you really must go around doing silly things. Or just, you know, drink the alcohol the old fashioned way. Though, I can’t really advocate for that, having seen what the euphemistically-named “Teen Help” industry has turned into… Best advice is to put yourself into a coma until you’re over 18/21, and then do what thou wilt.

And to everyone else: let us gaze upon the effects of prohibition. The Word of Sin is Restriction.
