Menstrual Cups

Is it true that you can have sex while on your period using menstual cups like Softcups? I saw them being advertised on facebook. Is there a catch what are the REAL benefits of the product? And is the risk of TSS from tampons a big enough reason to switch to the softcups?

Their page on facebook is SoftcupSA

You can have sex while using menstrual cups.The benefit is that you do not have to change pads. The risk of TSS with tampons is small, provided you change them regularly.
