One day Karras and Karma will have to wear a male pad. Sorry to tell you, my DH's doctor tells us that all, ALL men will have prostate cancer at some point of their lives, very late in life, if you are lucky! It is simply because you have testosterone. They are doing great research on how to manage living with the slow growing cancer without invasive surgery as they do today. But that doesn't necessarily mean your prostate will continue to stop your flow of urine effectively. Hence the handy male pads. But so much for the Anatomy lesson. In the mean time, stop laughing at women who have leakage issues. If it weren't for TV commercials you wouldn't even know about it. And if they want to keep it a secret so be it. That population is larger than you could ever imagine. Just ask anyone who has given birth.
