If you want everyone to start calling them with a different name there is a forum for attempting that: Campaigns Corner
They're a bit tricky to get the hang of at first (I recommend trying with some lube before using for real - I didn't and wish I had) and the stem irritated me so much I had to cut it off. Also, for me, placing it needs me to have a foot up on the edge of the bath.
But once I had got used to all those, I found it was much more comfortable than traditional products, and it holds a lot more so there's less changing.
There's a website that helps pick which type might be most suitable, can't remember it now but sure Google could find it!
Oh, and one last thing - don't be alarmed by the size! Yes, they look huge at first, but that's because the nearest comparable is a fresh tampon!!!
