A Remedy For The Awkward Moment You Never Wondered About: Life Elements Tela D'Amour Towelettes

Let me start this post with a caveat: its topic is sensitive, its content rather embarrassing. But SheFinds has never shied away from embarrassing questions (remember our bad breath and butt pimple posts?) and the gritty details of feminine hygiene merit discussion. So here it is.

What: Life Elements Tela D'Amour disposable towelettes ($10)

Why: Because, and I'm quoting the packaging here, "Moments of ecstasy are meant to be relished, not rushed. Instead of dashing off to the bathroom, extend the enjoyment of intimate moments by reaching for a Tela D'Amour." For the more literal-minded among us, the fine people at Life Elements have created a sweet-smelling moistened towelette for that inopportune instant right after gettin' down and dirty when things actually get, well, dirty. Being, as I am, a candid, tactless, and (I hope) amusing kind of gal, I usually try to offset the awkwardness of such moments by standing up and loudly declaring, "And now, Ladies and Gentlemen…the least sexy part of sex!" But while forthrightness has its place in the bedroom, so, too, does discretion.

In the name of subtlety, sensuality, and ease (and, I'm sure, to the joy of all those sensitive men out there who just crave the post-coital cuddle) try keeping a pack of Tela D'Amour by the bed.
