The bleeding can't be avoided as there's also lots of bloodflow to the area. So there I was thinking... I need something to keep this potential blood off my clothes. If only there were some device that could be placed in the area in a way that it wouldn't move, would soak up blood, be readily and conveniently available, and be a clean environment.
Then I was thinking, what is the one thing that a guy wouldn't think of? Maxi-pads. Working like a champ. Let me say, for the record, what an terribly uncomfortable invention, but damn if it doesn't do exactly what it says it does.
