The buzz is growing about a new ‘smart’ Menstrual Cup, and leaves me wondering about it all…
Alternatives, such as whimsically printed reusable Cloth Pads, and various Menstrual Cups, have been the Smart Woman’s choice in the New Millennia. But the digital era’s ‘Smart’ gives the word a whole new meaning.
The ‘New Smart’ is a battery operated cup that will text you from within your body!
Would you insert it into your Yoni, your Sacred Space, also known as your Vagina?
Tech Crunch, one of the many now publicizing this new Start up, has recently shouted out: ‘Smart Menstrual Cup’ Looncup Deciphers Your Flow, and explained: “The reusable cup tracks the volume and color of menstrual fluid and uses Bluetooth to send that info to its connected app.”
The Fashion Spot wrote: “Once the cup is inserted, it checks your menstrual cycle via a sensor and alerts you in real time as the cup fills… It can also help you predict upcoming periods and can monitor the color of your menstruation blood for signs of stress or lack of sleep.”
Have we gotten so detached from our body that we need a devise to “decipher our flow”? To let us know when we are stressed or sleep deprived? Are we giving away our connection to ourselves, to our body, to our cyclicity, to the expansion and contraction of our soul? Is our goal to become more unconscious, and develop more devices to rely on for what is happening inside us?
“Unless it makes a mess, I rarely think about my sloughing uterine lining as anything other than a minor inconvenience” wrote Catherine Shu in The Crunch, as an intro to her article about the upcoming ‘Smart Cup.’ She went on to interview Loon Labs co-founder Kate Lee who says about the project: “We want to change the negative thoughts we’ve all had about menstruation. We think it’s something positive.” I’m confused, now… If it’s ‘something positive’, surely the positivity is inherent in our body, is it not? And if so, why do we need digital help?
