My 29 year of life has so far been spent preparing for my 30s. I’ve tried numerous times to stop loving candy (with no success) and left the steady stream of a full-time career behind to try to make it as a freelance writer based in Bali. Most recently, my ageing obsession has shifted to my vagina, thanks to the Diva Cup. In the spirit of being a health-conscious, environmentally aware adult, I decided to swear off tampons. Enter the DivaCup. Though I wasn’t sure which Model I’d need — the Model 1, the site says, is recommended for women under 30 who’ve yet to give birth or have a c-section, and the Model 2 is for women 30 and older who have given birth and/or had a c-section — I went figured I’d start with the Model 1 and take it from there.
