We are attending DebateFest at the University of Denver this evening, so stay tuned for branding updates!

Don't know my tampon history, but "ohne Binde" would mean without ties, fasteners or strips of material or something else like that, not "without napkins". (No online dictionary I've checked has "napkins" or anything like it under "Binde".) The word is cognate to English "bind". I'm guessing tampons used to come with some kind of fastener...

Lane: That definition comes from the o.b. FAQ:
"Dr. Judith Esser named the product o.b.®, which stands for 'ohne binde' in German or 'without napkins.' (Sanitary pads are often called binde in Europe.)"

Tampons are an alternative to napkins.
