Serena Williams Plugs Tampons!
Our lesbian sports' writer Helen Wortham gets to the nitty gritty of the sports' world. 'Serena Williams is sort of back on top ladies. She won her second round match at the China Open to regain her #1 overall ranking but then lost to Nadia Petrova to get knocked out of the Open. I'd love to tell you this article is about all that up and down, but it's not. The tennis great is plugging Tampax in a new commercial!'
Serena Williams is sort of back on top ladies. She won her second round match at the China Open to regain her #1 overall ranking but then lost to Nadia Petrova to get knocked out of the Open. I'd love to tell you this article is about all that up and down, but it's not.
It's about Serena's tampons, her commercials and someone else's collectible frogs. Don't worry-sports will slide in there somewhere.
What I feel most strongly about is that someone has finally figured out I don't want to see a meadow and green grass and rain and then the words "Summer's Eve Douche." Incredibly, the advertising world is beginning to realize that by adding a little levity and some well-placed celebrities they can sell tampons. Look at the video. Try to stop chuckling to yourself...
I'm "sofa king" excited about the whole damn thing that I see this going much further in the near future. How about condoms and dental dams? Try and tell me Ellen DeGeneres doesn't have a five-minute routine on that tucked away somewhere...
Don't feel left out, gentlemen. How about the XGames and Depends? Tony Hawk seems cool. How about this line: "I almost shit myself on that last half pike. Thank God I've got it covered. Like my mother says, "They do wear those baggy pants."

I'm a proud Tampax user, and the four hetero guys I work with know it. I tuck that white cigar behind my ear to run to the ladies room. The blue box stands guard in front of my instant oatmeal and Tylenol stash. (The boys are a bit squeamish about touching it.) The big bonus comes when the box is empty. Our mascot gerbil shreds it in her cage.
Seeing the gerbil reminds me about the collectible frogs. They have to do with another sports celebrity I'd like to see hawking feminine products-Martina Navratilova.
The Advocate is stating that her former partner, Tony Layton, is suing for assets that include guns, a porcelain cookie bowl and collectible frog art. Yeah...there's blood involved, just not the kind selling tampons.
