  1. 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.

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

    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 +?

  4. 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!

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 1946 Walt Disney Menstruation Animation Tells Us We’re Ok Just The Way We Are

    Bloody Good Fun

    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.

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

    Bloody Good Fun

    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. (via Jezebel.)
