If they aren’t for ears, what are they for??

Cleaning a baby

Nothing else fits in there.

A tiny baby

I haven’t used them since i blocked my ears and had to get them syringed in March which was the last ‘thing’ i did before lockdown.

Now i just…don’t clean my ears apart from wiggling a finger in there a bit? I don’t notice any difference but maybe I have boulders of visible wax on my side profile, who knows?


Postponed to October 2021, original tickets still valid.


The whole ear-cleaning thing is minefield. I never realised that it’s acceptable to walk around with gunge in your tabholes, my mum always said we should keep our ears clean

what are they supposed to be used for then einstein

The most glorious sensation. I fucking love it. Best when you have some wax build up but rarely let it get to that stage because I love it so much.


Wish I could say the same thing

Until creating this poll and googling it, I thought Americans called them cue tips

I like to pretend I’m a big boy giant playing a tiny pathetic human game of ITV’s Gladiators


Wiggling a cotton bud around in your ear is better than any sexytime feeling

I used to stress out my ears seemed dirtier than others, used to even get teased about it at school. Since I went to a clinic they told me just use a washcloth to clean out the opening, anything else will fall out naturally

now I just imagine globs of wax falling out in normal life and nobody caring
