Teens using vodka tampons to get drunk

Teens using vodka tampons to get drunk

Posted: Nov 07, 2011 7:07 PM EST Updated: Nov 08, 2011 8:59 AM EST
PHOENIX (KPHO) -

It's no secret teenagers sometimes experiment with alcohol, even drugs, but new ways they're finding to get drunk had jaws dropping in our newsroom.

"Quicker high, they think it's going to last longer, it's more intense," said Dr. Dan Quan from Maricopa Medical Center.

"This is not isolated to any school, any city, any financial area," Officer Chris Thomas, a school resource officer, said. "This is everywhere."

When we heard how kids are getting drunk these days, we thought no way.

So we hit up the experts to find out if it's an urban legend or if it's legit.

"There's been documented cases of people going to the hospital with alcohol poisoning just from utilizing it that way," Thomas said.

Thomas spends his days patrolling the halls of a Valley high school. He's heard first hand how kids are getting tipsy.

"What we're hearing about is teenagers utilizing tampons, soak them in vodka first before using them," Thomas said.

"It gets absorbed directly into the bloodstream. There's no barrier, there's no stomach acid to prevent it," Thomas said.

"I would expect it to absorb pretty quickly as well, because it's a very vascular structure," Quan told CBS 5.

"This is definitely not just girls," Thomas said. "Guys will also use it and they'll insert it into their rectums."

And that's not all.

"Using a beer bong rectally is the same concept as a vodka soaked tampon," Thomas said.

Rather than the traditional beer bong you'd find at a college party, kids are sticking the tube elsewhere to get wasted.

They're calling it "butt chugging."

"A lot of people believe it would cover it up, your breath won't smell like alcohol so you can hide it from the parents, hide it from police," Thomas said.

But take it from this cop, it won't work.

It's not just jail time that might be a problem, these new tricks are really risky and could cause some serious problems.

"It can cause mucosal irritation, meaning the vaginal wall can be irritated," Quan said.

Plus, what if you over do it? Irritation could be the least of your problems.

"Some of the dangers associated with this is there's no barrier," Thomas said.

There's also no gag reflex, and if it isn't going down the hatch you won't have that tell tale sign you've had too much to drink, which means you won't throw up if you've got alcohol poisoning, and you'll pass out before you know there's a problem.

"It's problematic because you don't really know how much you're going to absorb," Quan said.

It turns out that a super tampon can hold about a shot of vodka, which is pretty potent when it's going straight into your system.

"If the person does pass out or lose consciousness, health care professionals won't necessarily know that they have to look in those areas and that may delay treatment," Quan said.

If you're a parent of a teenager, what can you do to make sure tampons are used for the job they're intended and nothing more?

"Well then you need to get involved," Thomas said. "Stop being your kid's friend and be their parent first."

Another myth is that kids apparently think getting drunk that way means they would pass a breathalyzer test because they didn't drink the booze, but that's not true. The test checks out what's in your blood stream, not what's on your breath.

There was a writer over at jezebel that did this and she said she couldn't make it past 5 minutes cause of the pain.

Now the butt chuggging I can see, cause there is a long history of wine enemas.

The thing is, if you can get the tampon into the upper reaches of the...uh..."female cavity" - it wouldn't hurt so bad. (Fewer nerve endings the higher you go - spares the woman at least slightly during childbirth.)

Problem is, to get it up there, you have to go through the part that has nerve endings galore.

Oh, great. This post will end up in Dan's signature, for sure. lol

Tampons Soaked in Vodka: Quick Drunk or Urban Myth? [Updated]

Categories: Drink Drank Drunk, WTF?
Update: (Tuesday, November 22, 11:30 a.m.) Inevitably, perhaps, an intrepid blogger has tried the vodka-soaked tampon and reported on her efforts. Details follow the original post after the jump!

tamponvodka.jpg

Taking shots of booze thr...e eyeball. Soaking gummi bears in booze. What adult-defying method of getting drunk will America's teenagers think of next?

If you believe a breathless report from KPHO in Phoenix, Arizona, those crazy kids are now soaking tampons in vodka ...rting them into their hoo-hahs or no-nos (vaginas or rectums, for those not versed in the latest jargon).
"This is not isolated to any school, any city, any financial area," Officer Chris Thomas, a school resource officer, said. "This is everywhere."
Officer Thomas is correct. It is everywhere. If by everywhere, you mean all over the Internet in varying states of amused disbelief.
Snopes, the official Internet resource for debunking email forwards from Grandma, took a long look at the vodka ...ck in 2009 -- and claims to have print references to this "trend" dating back to 1999. That's the 20th century, kids. How hip do you feel now?
Snopes also calls bullshit on some of the purported advantages of vodka tamponing, namely that it's a way to hide your drunkenness from Mom and Dad by not having booze on your breath. To paraphrase: If you're the sort of dumbshit who's going to stick a tampon soaked in vodka up your cha cha or poop chute, you're probably going to act like a drunken dumbshit when you get home, booze on your breath or not.
There is also the question of insertion.
A blogger who goes by Aunt B. and writes for a blog called Tiny Cat Pants and who, despite having those two strikes against her, doesn't blog about cats, has written a post entitled "In Which I Debunk the Vo...mpon Myth" in which she attempts to debunk, well, you get it.
At any rate, her argument, which is persuasive, especially if you've never felt compelled to dip a tampon in vodka and then place it inside a mucus-membrane-lined part of your body, is that alcohol causes the tampon to swell to a point where insertion would be painful -- nay, impossible!
She has pictures. I guess they are safe for work, but I'm not the same after seeing them.
For the last word, we turn to Stephen Colbert, who dedicated a few minutes of last night's The Colbert Report to this epidemic sweeping the nation:


---

Update: (Tuesday, November 22, 11:30 a.m.) Danielle Crittenden, managing editor of the Huffington Post in Canada, soaked several different ...t specimen. The winner? A super-plus tampon without the applicator.
I repaired to the bathroom and -- without too much information here -- managed to wad the thing up and push it in where it was supposed to go. (Did it help that I've had three kids? Possibly. )
Well, if nothing else, she wins the TMI award of the week.

At any rate, after ten minutes of an excruciating burning sensation, she felt what?
Certainly a definite, if slight, lightheadedness.
So there you go, kids. Go ahead and stuff a vodka-soaked tampon into your holiest of holies. Or just spin around in circles for a couple of minutes.

that makes sense since you injest it. whatever we consume; the effects are felt rather immediately.

so how can you get it in when it is full of vodka and has expanded? and if it was still in the tube it would 1) not be able to absorb much and if it did it would not come out very easy.

so i call Myth on this!

FYI: there are some Orgers I ignore. So when I do not reply to them... that is why.

Vodka doesn’t have an odder so it would not create a breath smell. (The sensation you experience when sniffing vodka is the alcohol burn not an odder. Cops often say they could smell "alcohol" that is not true. They can smell other things associated with some alcoholic drinks *thus "the smell of alcoholic beverage") but alcohol has no odder.

The same way, one would get in a thick penis. The vagina expands to accomadate. Remember, if a head can come through it, anything else can, as well. As for it not being about to abosorb much, to prevent it from coming out easily, this is why, there is a string....You pull and it comes out...

Do you know what a tampon is made of? It's made of a combination of cotton and rayon, is are pretty strong fibers,(we are not talking, rolled up toilet paper) The most absorbent one, is able to absorb, between, 15-18 grams of fluid....That's allot of fluid. Kids, especially college aged kids, are extremely gullible and most, will try anything once and all you need is one kid to try something and then, everybody will try it. I don't think, it's hoax...It is very possible.
