    Pretty much any kind of personal products: tampons, pads, bras, underwear..... Once (this is embarrassing to even write lol) I had to buy Monistat 3 lol & that was humiliating. I was buying some of those wet wipes (almost like baby wipes, but for adults) & though that...

    Hurry!

    I feel silly buying feminine products. It's a little uncomfortable for me. I don't know if I will get over that, but I just stand there hoping it'll go by quickly.

    I Hate Buying...

    Anything that falls into the category of women's personal needs including bras and underwear.  I should be grown out of that by now but unfortunately I still feel silly or nervous about buying that stuff.  I will only go to an older female cashier to buy that stuff...

    Underwear

    I feel funny purchasing panties from a department store when a young man is checking me out. I'm an adult female and it's not like I'm purchasing anything slinky. I'm talking about your basic everyday restocking of panties!

    Chocolate

    I have a sweet tooth sometimes and it gets out of hand and it seems like chocolate has always been more of a delicacy for women than men so I feel weird about it, unless it's Halloween time, or I just buy a small one at the checkout lane. Then again, maybe it's just me.

    Women's Underwear

    Okay, I did once just to see if anyone would notice that I wasn't a woman. And guess what? Nobody did. I never actually wore the items I bought. Well, only a couple of times. That nylon/polyester mix isn't very comfortable.

    Tampons and pads.  It's even more awkward for me when the cashier is a guy...when I'm waiting in line for my turn at the cash register I just hope I get a female.  But I always get a guy

    Underwear

    I feel "silly" buying underwear. I don't mean embaressed, I mean silly! Why? Well the guys on the package are usually very good looking. The six pack abs ripple above the waist band where my kegger abs hang over it. Even worse the do the butt shot of two firm cheeks...

    I Feel Silly Buying...

    Underwear, pads, tampons, bras(mostly because they are so huge, that it makes me feel rather dumb).... it shouldn't be that embarrassing to me. I had to get my friend to buy my pregnancy test when I was pregnant (obviously didn't know at the time) because it was way too...

    Prying Eyes.

    It seems like every time I go to buy Astroglide or any feminine hygiene product it's inevitable that an elderly person will be behind me in the check out line.

    Canned Air

    Sound silly, I use to keep my computer and other electronics clean, but I always feel funny about buying air, somehow seems wrong.    Yes its silly, but it's the way I feel.

    More Embarrased Than Silly

    The answer is... well... bras! I'm so big chested... so walking into a store and picking out a monster size bra is so embarrassing. I have to go to the plus-size section, just to hope that they have my size... and sometimes, even they don't have it! :-o

    I'm  17 year old girl and I absolutely hate buying underpants. It's so stupid, especially those hanes ones in the 6 packs. Oh god. Then you buy a bra and the person at the checkout line is a man. I also feel embarrased buying makeup. I don't know why, I just feel dumb...

    Anything Hand Painted

    Junk Food

     I'm pretty shameless when it comes to lingerie, condoms or pregnancy tests. But when I hit a craving for french fries, or a hot dog, (which are my two really gross cravings) I feel all shy and embarrassed, and feel the need to point out that I don't eat like that all the...

    I Was Dumb

    I bought some lavendur baby bath wash for myself, and three giggly cute and adorable girls my age all noticed.  I just played along with their story, but I was too dense that day to realise having a baby girl is a dead end.  I should have told them the truth and see how...

    Its For a Friend!

    Astro-glide or KY. They have several types now so that helps. They package it "massage lotion". This is supposed to lessen the embarrassment. Still nothing says I am spreading my legs like buying a little AstroGlide. So I never go directly to the condom aisle. First I walk...

    Panties of Course.

    I feel silly buying panties, and lingerie, and skirts.  I feel even more silly buying makeup and maxi-pads.  Mostly though, I feel silly buying (adult) diapers.
