Bic cristal for her ballpoint pen – recommended by Amazon

on May 1, 2013

Amazon sent me this email which started:

Eadaoin Flynn, Are you looking for something in our Writing Supplies department? If so, you might be interested in these items…

There followed a number of advertisements for a product called the BIC Cristal For Her Ballpoint Pen. Here’s an example of the product:

Now until now it has to be said that if I was looking for “writing supplies” I’d just head for the supermarket and buy any old pen, but it seems I’ve been doing it all wrong. I should have been using a pen especially designed for my feminine needs. Thank you Amazon, now that I know better I will head for your website and order some ridiculously overpriced pretty pens in pastel colours.

Some sample reviews of the product on the Amazon website:

Courtney – I see this comes in a sleek design. But as a “full-figured” woman, do these pens come in “curvy and carefree”?

Tracy Hamilton – Someone has answered my gentle prayers and FINALLY designed a pen that I can use all month long! I use it when I’m swimming, riding a horse, walking on the beach and doing yoga. It’s comfortable, leak-proof, non-slip and it makes me feel so feminine and pretty! Since I’ve begun using these pens, men have found me more attractive and approchable. It has given me soft skin and manageable hair and it has really given me the self-esteem I needed to start a book club and flirt with the bag-boy at my local market. My drawings of kittens and ponies have improved, and now that I’m writing my last name hyphenated with the Robert Pattinson’s last name, I really believe he may some day marry me! I’m positively giddy. Those smart men in marketing have come up with a pen that my lady parts can really identify with. Where has this pen been all my life???

Further hilarious reviews can be found here

And check out this great clip from Ellen DeGeneres where she talks about the pens.

Why didn’t my mom talk to me about lady pens?
