Police Warn Of Growing Teen ‘Vodka Tampon’ Use

34051Time to check in on the latest youth trends: teens (both girls and boys) are increasingly using liquor-soaked tampons as a novel and stealthy means of getting drunk. A number of Facebook pages have popped in honor of the practice, called “slimming”. Ah, kids with their crazy fads! The Local enlightens on the scourge every parent should be most worried about:

Police in southern Germany warned this week of a dangerous new form of alcohol abuse among teens – using tampons soaked in vodka to get drunk quickly and hide the smell. The practice poses grave health risks, they said.

In early March a 14-year-old girl collapsed during a street festival in Konstanz, apparently highly intoxicated from using a vodka tampon, the paper reported. Youth researchers have since found out that this form of alcohol abuse is trendy in the region.

The trend arose among teens in the United States, where it is known as “slimming.” But it has reportedly caught on in Scandinavia and other places where alcohol is difficult for young people to acquire.

[Police] warn girls that the alcohol could damage vaginal walls and increase the risk of infection. Boys have reportedly also been using tampons anally.

    First the “choking games” (autoerotic asphyxiation), and now kids are getting “Intoxicated Shock Syndrome.”

  17. It is not hard for Germans to get alcohol, I’m German and you can practically be any age. THe legal age is 16, but most do not care.

  21. Yeah, if you’ve ever been to a Scandinavian country, it is not at all difficult for teenagers to get alcohol.

    in their penis hole – duh.

  26. At first I thought that was a joke, but there’s coverage suggesting the case in Konstanz could indeed have happened as described. However, according to expert opinions gathered by police in response to this “news”, alcohol consumed with tampons cannot be absorbed by the body to such an amount as to cause drunkenness. The whole idea of Vodka tampons is turned down as urban myth by the police; however they’re warning that the vaginal walls could be damaged by this practice, resulting in higher infection risk.

  28. Put a tampon in vodka and see what it does. It’s the size of a lemon.

  29. justagirl | Apr 13, 2011 at 6:38 pm |

    hmm. i see your DILLemma. maybe they have to use a vodka filled syringe after the tampon is placed.

  30. The body absorbs things quickly and directly through the anus, this is why suppositories were invented. However girls putting in the other way are quickly going to see that the infections/dryness isn’t worth it. The boys are more likely absorbing it better, if you have seen jackass (wasn’t my idea) you would see that one of those idiots but a bottle of beer up that way and emptied it into his body via the anus and was drunk immediately.

      Its better than shooting it into your vein i suppose. I like the taste of most beers so its old fashioned style for me.

  32. justagirl | Apr 13, 2011 at 7:23 pm |

    or if you are afraid of poking your penis with the needle, you could squeeze the vodka up there with a turkey baster and tie it off with a rubber band… do away with the tampon altogether.

  33. just man up and learn how to take a shot. geez.
