Depend Shields for Men

Mar 31 2013 05:40 AM

Now, on depend.com, there are Depend Shields for Men.

I guess my question is, Did we need this? Does anyone think the the Depend Guards are too big, too capacious? I find the Guards to be very discreet under pants and have never wished for anything with less absorbency or coverage.

I recognize that there are guys out there who only need protection from the occasional dribble, but I can't imagine wanting something that offered less protection than the Guards.

What do you think?

RMS,
I fully agree. Just having something like that for the male anatomy makes me think that they are lacking a true understanding of what is needed. If that is all I needed, I would use a guard or simply a washcloth in the front of my underwear.
Oh well, so much for reality. I will guess many folks will try them , leak ,and then go to more complete protection.

I agree with you guys. My bladder issues have undergone an evolution over the years but I don't think this product would ever have been right for me. I thought maybe as an add-on to a brief but actually it would probably just channel moisture away from the thickest padding and cause leaks. I really appreciate that Depends is out there trying new products but wish they would listen to us on this forum and direct their attention to more useful things. For me it would be a thicker pull up with leak shields for night use.

Hello Gentlemen -

Have you noticed the new section of the Depend.com site, called "Guard Your Manhood?" I'd love to hear your thoughts. A large percentage of men who are suffering with leaks won't wear protection. I hope it encourages those who are shy about using anything to give the guards and shields a try.

Warm regards,

Hi, Lori, and thanks for the linky goodness. I actually saw those yesterday when fishing around on the Depend site, and thought they were cute.

But my point is that I've never heard anyone say they wished their protection could offer less coverage. Thinner, sure, but the Guards are already really discreet.

I can't speak for every guy, but I think I speak for most when I say that penises move. They move from side to side, and grow and shrink. This is a huge difference between men and women: the position of the urethra. In women, it doesn't change. In guys, it changes constantly, all day and all night.

Having protection that offers a narrower area of coverage, that's something I just can't understand.

I liked the Tony Saraguso "protect your manhood" plugs. I'm glad you are offering samples, too. It has been a long time since I tried guards and maybe I will be surprised.

I am really upset over this. It seems as if Depend doesn't listen to any of us. We don't need another product we need more improvements to the already existing products.

However I am loving the new guards. A few weeks ago at the store I saw the new packaging and figured I would give them a try. I have been able to get away with just wearing the guards during the day. It makes changing a lot easier, especially when it comes to public restrooms, which I frequent a lot.

I just hope that Protection with tabs will still remain on the shelves at Riteaid. Since the realfit came out most stores started carrying those instead. Which at a dollar a diaper I can see there reason .

If I'm reading things correrctly, I have the impression the shields are for very light drips like after urination and sometimes when you're done you still dribble a couple of drops that get in your underwear and the new shields keep the drips where they belong. That happened to me for quite a few years and wish they had thsoe shields back then. Now I got an overactive bladder and if I do make it to the bathroom, my pull-on diaper takes care of any post-urination drips.
