I know this is very strange and probably disgusting to some people, but I've tried tampons. I first started trying a tampon when my then-girlfriend told me to try it since I was teasing her about tampons. She dared me to try it. I hesitated for a long time, but gave in. She helped me. It was VERY strange at first, having something in my butt. Once it was in, she told me to soak the tampon to almost feel what a woman feels when it's inserted in her vagina. Granted, a butt in NOT the same thing as a vagina. Ever since then, I've been using tampons every now & then. I like the super absorbent.
About one third of tampon sales in the UK are for use by males, make of that what you wish. I bet they aren't using them for the same reason as you, normally they serve a particular blood related purpose.
I was walking my dog one nite and he found a treasure and was so proud as he carried it home. When he got inside the house as I was hanging up his leash I heard my wife yelling. He'd picked up a used tampon and took it to show mommy his treasure.
