Maxi pads. Wart medication. Itch-relief cream for “down there.” My local Rite Aid store manager once told me that Preparation H is the most-shoplifted item at his store.

Researchers at the University of Kentucky even explored the phenomenon of “masking” embarrassing purchases by burying them inside of other, more mundane items. Of course, you can totally avoid embarrassment by buying online. Even better: subscribe to these items, and you don’t even have to cringe as you put them into your online cart. You’re welcome.
