come&gone’s founder and CEO, Frances Tang, says she invented the product after becoming tired of her post-sex clean up ritual.
The sponge is supposedly made out of “medical grade material” and users are instructed to insert, swirl it around about 10 times, remove and toss (which seems somewhat environmentally irresponsible).
Sponges come in packs of 10, 20, 40 or… 69.
Reviewers seem pretty happy with the product though, despite the pushback online.
A comment (admittedly, unverified) left on come&gone’s product page by “Connie” reports that her daughter purchased her some sponges, which she says are AMAZING” and have proved very useful for her and husband of 43 years.
“My husbands ejaculate is the consistency of cake batter and pungent. It is always a rush to the bathroom to do a quick cleanup,” read’s Connie’s review. “after the last attempt, I fell and broke my hip and clean up has been taking more of a mental toll on me than usual.
“After my daughter bought this product for me, I no longer have to wait on the bed holding the semen in, hoping it does not erupt out of me like a volcano. Finally, no more wet undies, or glops of man-goo on my floor. I am getting older, and rushing to the bathroom is just not an option anymore.”
Perhaps this is a case of don't bash it (so to speak) until you’ve tried it?
