What should you do if you found your son trying to stuff a tampon up his rectum?

Explain to him the function of the rectum and how he could possibly cause internal damage by sticking foreign objects up there. I would also use the opportunity to discuss sexual issues if he is at the experimental/curious age.

However, inserting a sterile, lubricated tampon into the anus is generally harmless.
