Is He Spongeworthy?

No more rationing sponges ala Seinfeld’s Elaine Benes, ladies. The Today sponge is back on store shelves—and how cute is that box? Have you ever seen such hip marketing of a contraceptive? (Well, maybe that Yaz commercial where the hot chick in the dance club seems weirdly knowledgeable about birth control–until she reveals she’s a doctor and it makes a bit more sense.)

In any case, why did Elaine need to decide whether her bfs were spongeworthy or not? Today sponges were taken off the market in 1995 because the plant that manufactured them failed to meet FDA standards (it had nothing to do with the safety of the sponge), so Elaine needed to make her final stash last. Luckily for all sponge devotees, the Today sponge was purchased by a new company, the manufacturing equipment was updated, and–voila!–a hormone-free, over-the-counter birth control for women that doesn’t need to be hoarded for special occasions.

Just some health notes: the sponge has a failure rate of about 16%, does not protect against STDs, and is not recommended for women who’ve given birth within the past 6 weeks, who have their period, or who are allergic to Nonoxynol 9.

    I bought the Today sponge off last week, and the packaging is completely different and it has an expiration date of November 2007. So ladies, if you order online, don’t stock up too enthusiastically – there’s no way to know what the expiration date will be on what they send you.

    Good to know, JJ! Thanks!
    I just recommended the sponge (with no background info except that from Planned Parenthood and Elaine) to a friend. Certainly seems cheaper than my prescription birth control!
