  1. YouTube’s Superwoman and AsapSCIENCE Get to the Bottom of Whether Periods Make You Moody

    "Why are you so moody?" "BECAUSE SCIENCE, OK!?"

    Hey, it takes a lot of work to go through the process that allows for the entire human race's continued existence every month, so a little moodiness is warranted. It's also scientifically unavoidable, so the next time someone accuses you of being moody from PMS, tell them that science and the future of humanity don't care about their feelings.

  2. These Australian Tampon Commercials Are Weird As Hell, And I Vagging Love Them

    "Your Vagesty."

    How much am I loving our cultural Renaissance of period commercials? Very, very much. Especially when it gives us this (panty)line of ads from Carefree, which technically has as its aim dispelling common period-related myths. In actuality, I'm just glad they brought the names "Fanny Glitterwinkle," "Harmony Freebush," and "Stefan Van Der Blöed" into our lives.

  3. HelloFlo Returns With Another Spot-On Commercial For Menstrual Products

    "Do you know how hard it is to find a uterus piñata?"

    HelloFlo already declared themselves the refreshing antithesis to your average tampon commercial—blue fluid, always blue fluid—with their Camp Gyno ad from last year. Now they've done it again with "First Moon Party," a commercial for their period starter kit that doubles as a how-to guide for throwing your very own menstruation-themed party. I already did that for my birthday last year, but the rest of you could use the tips.

    A Series of Fallopian Tubes

    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." Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  6. Werewolf Diet Claims to Help Shed Pounds (And Human Form), Probably Doesn’t

    Moonology? More like misogyny!

    Forget the food pyramid, eat like a werewolf! At least that's what celebrities like Madonna and Demi Moore are (definitely just rumored) to be doing. What is the Werewolf Diet, and how can I, too, recapture the body I had as a hot Teen Wolf, you ask? That's what we wanted to know too!

  8. HelloFlo’s Commercial is Not Your Average Menstrual Product Ad

    A Series of Fallopian Tubes

    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.

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

    Allow Us To Explain

    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.
