Well, let’s just get right to it—it’s a product designed to get rid of leftover semen. After a hot night with your guy, you may find yourself slowly waiting for his semen to… well… GET OUT!

Awkward Essentials takes a few seconds for its soft sponge to absorb everything. Then just remove it and enjoy whatever comes next, comfortable and free from the messy downside of sex!
That answers one question, but I have a few more, so I sat down with Frances Tang Founder and CEO to get some answers and learn more about Awkward Essentials, dripstick, and her mission to support women from feeling awkward after coitus!
Tell me more about the Dripstick!
Carrying on the Conversation
After chatting with some friends about cum sponges, as one does, I realized that many of them rely on douches to clean up postcoital “messes”. I told them that they absolutely need to give cum sponges a try. There are two drivers behind that advice. First, they might find it more convenient and effective. Second, and most important, douches are not good for you! If this comes as a shock to you, check out Grace Kline’s article where she explains that,
“According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health, almost one in five women 15 to 44 years old douche in the United States. Doctors recommend that you do not douche. Douching can lead to many health problems, including problems getting pregnant, and is linked to vaginal infections and STIs”.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) likewise discourages the use of vaginal douching, warning women that douching has been associated with many adverse outcomes including pelvic inflammatory disease, bacterial vaginosis, cervical cancer, low birth weight, preterm birth, human immunodeficiency virus transmission, sexually transmitted diseases, ectopic pregnancy, recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis, and infertility.
At the end of the day, the more options we have, the better! BUT! We need to make sure that we evaluate all of our options. Turns out that using a dripstick aka cum sponge is a safer way of dealing with leftover “mess” than the traditional douche! Who knew?!
