tena intimates let you keep on laughing


Thanks to TENA for sponsoring this post and starting this important 
conversation. All opinions are, as always, 100% mine.

As you know, I am a big believer in laughter.

I have laughed until I cried, I have laughed until my stomach hurt and, more recently, I have laughed until tears started running down my leg.

Yes, as I’ve gotten older, gravity seems to have forced everything down, including those happy tears.

And, well, that’s not really funny.

So, when TENA asked me to partner with them to introduce their new TENA Intimates, a line of innovative bladder protection products, I did a little research and agreed for three main reasons:

* 1.2 billion women around the world will experience incontinence at some point in their lives. That is a huge number, and there should be no stigma related to any of this. We need to do what women do best – talk about uncomfortable subjects and share our experiences – so no one is embarrassed to buy the products that will actually help them.

* TENA is all about letting you be you, no matter what you want to do or wear. I love that. I travel around the world and have no intention of stopping, and I know so many of you are also really active and determined to keep moving and going and doing for the rest of your lives. We should not be slowed down because we’re worried that the things we love to do may cause a leak in the plumbing. Wearing TENA Intimates is kind of like having your own personal plumber with you, which is reassuring and what I wish I had for my house, as well.

* The new TENA Intimates are designed with superior ProSkin Technology. They quickly wick away moisture to keep you feeling fresh and clean. Along with the trusted TENA Triple Protection against leaks, odor and moisture, they help keep you dry and confident. And they won’t irritate sensitive areas.

What I especially like about TENA Intimates is that they’re super absorbent but not at all bulky. No one could ever tell that you’re wearing them. That means you can wear white pants, shorts, workout clothes, whatever without worry.

Because you really need to try them yourselves, TENA is offering Midlife at the Oasis readers a special code for $5 off any one pack of TENA intimates™ at TENA.us. Enter code MLATO5 at checkout. Offer expires 12/31/2017.

Uncontrollable laughter is one of the best experiences in life. The resulting leg tears are not.

So, thanks, TENA, for letting us laugh our way through life knowing that the only thing that may be running is our mascara.


  1. I’m always interested in products that are this unique. Thank you for sharing this info!

  2. Alice Boswell says:

    I have never heard TENA intimates before and now I know. Not sure if they are available in Canada. I will find out more about it. Maybe my parents will like it.

  3. I admit it. I am a laugher and I am an occasional leaker. It goes along with living life and I love that products are improving so much to accommodate a life of laughter.


  4. We all leak, sometimes. Always good to know about. Thanks for the great info.

    We went to Florida to stay with my sister Edythe during winter weeks when I was young (?) in my 70’s & 80’s We spent much of our time playing games. There was something about becoming the OLD MAID in that silly game that made us laugh til we wet our pants. I am no longer young and upon waking in the AM i make a three yard dash to the bathroom in less than three seconds and that’s no laughing matter. I see Tena in my very near future!

    • Lois Alter Mark says:

      You made me laugh so much when we were together, I probably could have used these then! And you are still young at heart, my friend. xo

  6. *whispers* Sometimes this is me!

    I don’t always share about incontinence but when I do, I am glad there is Tena!

  7. Helene Cohen Bludman says:

    I know those leg tears well from laughing with you! 😊 Thanks for introducing me to Tena. She and I may become very good friends.

  8. It is good to know that such a product exist. Besides middle aged women some high school and college-aged women, particularly athletes experience this condition. Tema therefore seems to be a much welcomed option .

  9. Dawn Nieves says:

    I’ve never heard of Tena before. This sounds like a great product.

  10. Thank you for introducing me to this brand! We all experience this for sure as we’re all humans and we can’t control what happens down there.. I think we need more dialogue about the intimate things we go through and glad that Tena brings out that dialogue!

  11. I’m ok as long as I don’t sneeze! Thanks for the recommendation.

  12. Anyone who’s had kiddos knows how important these products are right?! Nobody should have to stress about laughing!

  13. “The resulting leg tears” omg i can’t stop laughing. Hilarious.

  14. I have never heard TENA intimates before but thanks for sharing. Will be sure to forward to others!

  15. it’s great to hear of a brand that is keeping these sensitive topics at the forefront.

  16. This is good. Laughter and ‘leg tears’ are a real problem. Thanks for sharing this.

  17. This was a lovingly read. Tena is going to be one of my good friends. We laugh, we leak, and we prepare next time.

  18. I never heard it referred to as leg tears! That is brilliant! Sounds like a smart product.

  19. I never heard about Tena. Not sure if they are available in my country or not.
