Aww.

I switched to using a Diva Cup a few years ago when I was in high school.

Now I'm in university and can't imagine what my life would be like had I never discovered the Diva Cup. It makes living in residence and sharing a bathroom with a whole floor of girls sooooo much easier! It makes going out while I'm on my rag a breeze, or if I'm sleeping over in my boyfriend's room.

So here is me wanting to say thanks to anyone in the community who may have helped me when I was deciding whether or not to try the Diva Cup all those years ago, and to those of you who are helping other women out as we speak.

Aww, now I feel all warm and fuzzy.

Where in the world....

I've been reading this community for a while now and I love it.  It's a great place for vagina-empowerment and has help me become more comfortable with ladytown.  I wish I could give each one of you a warm and gooey chocolate chip cookie baked chock full of love so the calories and fat don't count (my grandmother says that - it's science). But I digress...

I've often noticed that people mention sometimes in their posts that they are from different places all over the world.  That got me thinking, where IS everyone from? 

So in the spirit of being really geeky and, apparently, having too much time on my hands, I made this map and thought that people could post a marker on it in their city and we could get an idea of where people are using Cups.

I don't know if I'm the only person that's interested in this, but I thought, what the heck, if it's not relevant, the post will just get taken down :)

Ok, as was pointed out, apparently I'm stunned and it wasn't working properly so I'm editing so you guys can play :)  Hopefully this works *fingers crossed! Just make sure you click next past "shareable" and  the name"  Then you should see "add marker up at the top of the map.

You can mark on the map by clicking login and add a marker.  The accounts are free to set up  or if you don't want to, log in with the one I created to make it:

Username: newlydiva
Password: menstrualcup

 I find the easiest thing to do is to fiddle with the zoom so your hometown comes up easy to see and then you can click on it to add the marker (don't forget to hit save!).  The map is movable by dragging it around.

PS - I searched the community and didn't see anything like this - sorry if I'm reinventing the wheel here :)
