    My husband actually doesn’t mind picking up feminine products for me.  His theory is that it’s obviously not for him so it doesn’t really matter.  I actually was hesitant about asking him the first time but he just added it to the list and was absolutely fine with it.

    My husband doesn’t really care one way or the other. He has, in the past, offerred to go get feminine products for me in emergency situations.

    My Fiance has no qualms about doing this, thankfully 🙂

    Of course. He has 3 sisters so this type of stuff doesnt phase him.

    My husband kind of looked at me funny when I asked the first time, but now he’s an old hat about it.

    My dad always did it for my mom growing up and I never thought it was a big deal until I dated guys who freaked out when the box was even on the back of the toliet. 

    Honestly, my attitude is deal with it.  I will go to the store to buy lube and condoms and eventually pregnancy tests.  I got over the “gross” factor a long time ago.  I would have an issue if my husband thought buying tampons was gross…kind of like me having my period was gross…and that wouldn’t sit well with me.

    I get being freaked out initially though…I remember being nervous the first time I bought condoms.  It will get easier for him though.

    I voted ‘other’ because the issue has never come up. I assume this is partly because I have a weird cycle so I don’t need them as often but mostly because I do 99.9% of our shopping. However, I just asked Fiance if he would do it and he reluctantly said yes after giving me the “I smell poop face”.

    100% we have been dating since we were 20 and he has never had a problem with it. They are obviously not for him and he says he is proud to have a women that he can buy things for… even if they are tampons.

    @UpstateCait: I voted other too because it’s never come up for us, either.  I’m the only one of us who drives and has a car, whereas he walks around campus to get where he needs to go, so he never does any offline shopping without me (and thanks to birth control, I don’t need those things very often anyway).

    He has never had to buy them for me, but I’m sure he would without complaining.  He’s studying to be a paramedic, which is obviously means he isn’t squimish about bodily functions.

    Of course! He’s offered to do it, even without me asking. Personally, if my Darling Husband had an issue with that, I would have serious doubts about how he would handle things like pregnancy/childbirth–that stuff is messy and all full of feminine areas/ickiness!

    Fiance doesn’t object but I need to specify EXACTLY what I want or he’ll just grab the first thing he sees… or worse, he’ll grab the cheapest ones there (there are just some things you don’t go cheap on!)    On the flip side, I won’t buy condoms unless I’m with him… so guess he’s the more mature one in this regard!
