Have you ever sent your partner, or another male, to purchase feminine hygiene products from the store? Or if you are a man, have you ever had to purchase these products? How did that work out?

Yes, several times. I see no reason why not. Menstruation is a fact of life and the products needed to deal with it are no more embarrassing to buy than any other kind of toiletry. I wouldn't hesitate to ask him to buy shampoo or shower gel, so why would I worry about panty liners and tampons?
Yes. I told him exactly what kind to get and he bought those and didn't make a big deal out of it. I credit his Mum with bringing up her sons not to be squeamish about menstruation and women's bodies.
No, I think my partner would die with a fright if I asked! Haha

I had to get my partner to get maternity pads for me once. he took our toddler who insisted on carrying them and walking around the shop talking about "mummy nappies" lol. I'm pretty sure that I've had to get him to buy tampons before - I wrote out EXACTLY what I needed on the shopping list, including the colour of the packet and his venture was successful!
No, not unless he is doing the grocery shopping.

Yes, I sure have -it was many years ago and I wrote down what I wanted.

Aso I used to be married to a pharmacist and that was an easy one as he knew exactly what I was talking about -in fact knew them better than I did.

No. I always knew he was a little embarrassed about it and since I was embarrassed about it, and it was my problem, I always shopped for myself. It is a fact of life but so is the occasional requirement for a jock strap - and I wouldn't go shopping for one of those for him.
No, never!
It was MY responsibilty to have those products as required.
No, I've never had to ask him too, but he wouldn't have minded if I had, but I would have felt embarrassed for him!
