Pesky Kids!

Now they are trying to stop me lubricating my Vulva stern gland by advocating the banning of plastic straws.

I was organised enough to keep the bit of plastic straw in the cardboard box in beside the tube of blue grease, and use the same one year after year. :wink:

I've been refraining from joining this thread as I'm not sure the topic is a wholesome one for such a gentle and sensitive person as myself

I installed a permanent catheter to my gland, and can pump in lubricant whenever I feel the need. Modified a vintage grease gun to help with pumping.

The post was in response to a Beeb news item of school kids marauding round the west trying to persuade cafe owners and the like to dispense with plastic straws in an effort to save the planet.
