      Yes, and I find it satisfying in a mildly perverse manner.

      hahaha.
      I do too. Sometimes I get a tickle or itch inside my ear and q-tips are the only thing that helps

      Oh, man, it feels so good to just take one to your ear for a minute or two.

      I think it does more to compact earwax into the canal than actually clean it out.

      Yeah you have to do it right otherwise it does just compact your ear wax.
      The best way is to keep your ears clean by running water in and out of them a couple of times in the shower.

      It's what the nurse uses if you go in and your ear is impacted. I have yet to master it to the level they use it there. It's kind of meant to be used by someone else.

      Another tip I got from a nurse at some point is to just turn your head sideways in the shower, and let the stream take care of it. Obviously, results will vary depending on the water pressure.

      It's the best thing after a shower! Sometimes it's so nice that I close my eyes, and my jaw opens slightly. =D

      Oh God! I HAVE to or I feel anxious all day if not done right away in the morning. Doctor's tell me - don't use q-tips because it causes ear infection. Sigh... why do they make them then?

      I just noticed the "no rants" in the subject. What, are q-tips an incredibly controversial topic, like abortion?

      Man, those pro-q-tip people are unbelievably immoral! We pro-eardrummers are proud to blow up pharmacies that sell them!

      I'm astounded by the notion that pro-q-tippers are immoral! Earwax is not a fully developed life-form. Just because it grows does not mean that it is alive or has a brain or any feelings!
      You guys just choose the most distorted and disgusting pictures of ear wax, skewered by primal q-tips while forgetting about the relief the suffering individual attains after aborting the ear wax from his or her canal!

      This is going to sound really bad, but I use a paper clip and unbend it into a long U shape, and put the bend in my ear.

      I got the idea after I saw an earwax remover at walgreens that was basically the exact same thing with a handle.

      Some people have super strong feeling against them because doctors say that you shouldn't use them because, as mentioned, it will compact the wax and can cause infection

      Now, don't let this scare you, but this is the reason why the "no rants" was put in the title: Are Q-Tips good or bad for the ears? - Yahoo! Answers

      I don't understand how people go deaf, or puncture your ear drum. I put it in to the point where it's comfy and NOT HURTING... idiots, a hurr durr

      I do not rotate the qtip back and forth as the cotton gets all messed up (Prob why some people say the cotton falls off), I rotate it in the same direction, and that does it for me

      Glad this forum is pro-Qtips, lol

      Pro Q-Tip here. Do it when the earwax is all warm and soupy, right when you get out of the shower. So when you clean your ears, you soak up the stuff instead of crushing it into your skull.

      I swab my ears right after I get out of the shower, primarily to get the water out. I've got a squirt bottle in the shower that I fill with warm water and gently squirt in my ears to get most of the wax out.

      If I'm working in a very dirty environment, I'll swab the outer area of my ears to prevent junk from building up and falling deeper inside.

      Practicing abstinence is easy when you have Q-tips lying around.
