Would You Buy Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Canine Period Pads? [VIDEO]

I love how Sarah Michelle Gellar decided to share this specific personal anecdote on Conan. I also wonder how many people turned the channel when she started talking about her dog’s “time of the month.”

HelloFlo’s Commercial is Not Your Average Menstrual Product Ad

Compared to the terrible tampon ads that are out there (full of women running on a beach and laughing with salad while the narration discusses the torrent of blood evacuating your ladybits) it’s always nice to see something novel in the world of period equipment. Enter HelloFlo, a tampon delivery service that sends along candy and Midol and the things that you really need when you’re on your period, and their adorably funny commercial featuring the youngest gynecologist we’ve ever seen.

Eggs & Sperm Take On Cute Personalities In This Animation Helping You Understand Plan B

I’ll be honest, it’s been a while since I sat in a science class and my brain has refused to retain most of what I learned when I did. Though mostly, I don’t care how things like the pill or Plan B work, just that they do work. But in case you’re curious (or forgot), here’s a great animation from AsapSCIENCE showing you what goes down in your body.

No, this video from 1946 isn’t perfect as far as feminism goes but I have to say, I’m surprised to find it so…not 1946? Though I guess I’m even more surprised Walt Disney Productions made a video about our periods at all.

Maxipad Company Crafts Brilliant Reply to Facebook Commenter Complaining About his Girlfriend’s Period

A few weeks ago some dude made a post on the Facebook wall of a Maxipad company that went viral, about how their commercials had lied to him about what periods were really like. It’s an old joke, but a good one. He’d just found out that periods didn’t mean hang gliding, swimming in waterfalls and horseback riding but rather, he went on, that his girlfriend turned into something from the Excorcist because haha, ladies and their mood swings, amirite? Man, thank god we don’t have a lady president! So, less of a good joke in the end there.

Bodyform, the maxipad company, has come up with a video response that is almost the best thing ever.

Tampons Save Your Day, Could They Save the Planet?

Don’t worry if you were skimming in your e-reader and did a double-take. You read that one right. In a flurry of fact-finding this Friday, we came across this little gem of information, detailing how rejected or recalled tampon batches are shipped off and made into “fuel pellets”. (Also, I was unaware of stolen sub-par feminine products being sold on eBay, in a “tampon gray market”. The more you know!) The pellets are burned along with coal to “augment the fossil fuel’s power in furnaces”.
