Girls, do you insert a tampon with one hand, or does it take two hands?

I've wondered if it takes one hand to hold your labia open, and the other to put the tampon in, or if you can just do it all with one hand?

I'm really impressed by the 2 guys who can put one in with just one hand.

  • One hand, but I use an applicator that slides up there and pushes the rampon into my vagina. Question for you and I'm dead serious- when you take a crap, where does your penis go, does it sort of just hang there or does it sit on your lap or do you hold it out of the way or what?

    • it just hangs there (downward), but the anus is far enough back that it doesn't interfere with things

    • Haha no offense but that is totally weird

  • One hand. You don't need to spread your labia, you can feel everything, so you know where to position your tampon and to push in.

    You're asking this question cause you're seeing the vagina from a guy's point of view =)

    • I find the dexterity that the one-handers have to be amazing

    • It's not that hard. Or you can just spread the lips open a bit with your pinky and push with your middle or index finger. 2 hands would be such a pain to do.

    • haha thanks!

  • same as snowangle, i use two hands; to push the applicator and stick it in. no need to spread yourself open

  • I use two hands. One to stick it in and the other to push the applicator.

  • One hand. I don't think I've ever used two lol.

  • U can use two if u want, but u can do it w/ one :o)

  • There's no need for 2 hands, unless her inner labia are huge.

  • Weird question, never thought about it. I really don't know.

    If I had to guess I would say one hand cause I usually am on my phone with one hand while on the toilet LOL

  • Haha. 1 hand. What on Earth would I need the other one for? :)

  • On the rare occasion I use them I use two hands

  • Search for a demonstration on google

  • I use one hand to stick it in.

  • I guess I could use one hand but I find it goes easier and faster if I use two like you described.

    • thanks, it seems like it would be easier, especially when you're starting out, to open yourself up first and then put the tampon inside. Seems like that would be tricky to do with just one hand, but what do I know? LOL

    • Yeah, but then again I'm kind of new with using them. I think most girls just push it in though.

  • I have the IUD in so i don't get periods anymore.

    • thanks, I didn't know that girls stopped getting periods on the IUD

    • I have been period free for 2 years now with the IUD

  • I've never paid any attention. I just stick it down there and shoot it up :p

    So one hand, I guess.

  • i use 3 hands!

    • Sounds painful.

    • Haha!

    • ouch

  • One hand lol
    Weird question

    • so it's not necessary to spread your labia before you insert the tampon?

    • No lol Kinda just learn how to do it without needing to do that

    • well here's the reason I ask: I remember when I was about 13 or 14, I'd read those instructions that came inside the box of Tampax tampons my mom used. And one of the diagrams showed the person using 2 hands to spread herself open, with the other hand putting the tampon in.
