I overheard two middle school kids discussing what they thought was a neat way not to miss a breathalyzer again when pulled over by police on suspicion of drunk driving: oral alcohol rather than oral alcohol, uniquely inserting vodka tampon in butt (actually, one guy suggested vodka, but the other said he would prefer a tequila tampon I suspect your anus wouldn't know the difference That way, you won't smell alcohol or breathe out, according to their logic.
When I first heard this, my first thought was that the best way to avoid failing a breathalyzer was not to drink and drive in the first place and perhaps download the Uber or Lyft app. The second thought was unsettling because these guys appeared to be very serious about attempting it. Is anyone doing it? And what impact would it have on the body?
Influence of trend in alcohol:
If you search the term vodka tampon, you will find a plethora of results. Some press articles will claim that it's all the rage among college men and women these days, with ladies putting alcohol tampon in butt and guys putting them on their rectangles. Others, presumably, have beer or wine enemas instead. However, you will come across stories claiming that much of this depends on urban legends. For example, according to Snopes, the use of vodka-soaked sanitary napkins is nothing more than a rumor. So, what exactly is the truth?
Some students do use these unconventional drinking methods, but it is uncommon. It is not the "hot trend" that much of the media has claimed, but it is not a myth. Consider the results of a 2014 survey of 2,349 American students. Only 1. 1 are permitted to consume non-traditional alcohol.
With that said, let us look at the effects of alcohol consumption in the lower regions. On the one hand, because alcohol can enter the bloodstream directly, it will result in faster and more severe poisoning. It is the main attraction for some users. However, because it is absorbed so quickly, it is easy to overdo it and alcohol poisoning. There's not much you can do about it once it's in your bloodstream, other than seeing a doctor. In addition, unlike traditional drinking, you cannot vomit excess alcohol from your body.
Another disadvantage is that you run the risk of causing vaginal irritation or anus. It is not physically uncomfortable, but it may increase your risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases if you have sex later. Oh, and contrary to popular belief, non-traditional alcohol consumption will not help you pass a breathalyzer. Breathalyzers work by estimating the amount of alcohol in your blood. You will undoubtedly exhale some of it. If you have liquor in your blood it can be detected by a breathalyzer test.
So, vodka tampons and butt-chugging are real things that some students do; however, there appear to be many misconceptions about this type of alcohol consumption. Fortunately, this is relatively uncommon, and I believe we can all agree that it is a good thing.
Vodka tampons is an nontraditional alcohol intake
