  2. 50 Shades Won’t Include The Infamous Tampon Scene, So Here, Have This Fan Re-Creation

    Holy f***. Sweet mother of all... Jeez.

    Here's the thing about 50 Shades of Grey. If you're going to make the horrible source material into a film, you might as well go all the way, right? Sadly, the filmmakers have decided to omit a crucial scene from the film - the tampon scene. One fan won't let that stand, however, and has seen fit to create the scene in all its CG glory.

  3. Awesome Video Game Hopes To Destigmatize Tampons By Using Them As Projectiles

    "Don't run out of tampons or it's GAME OVER." Just like in real life!

    Just about half of the world's population is capable of menstruation, and yet when it comes up in conversation, people sometimes act like it's the grossest thing to ever conceivably happen to a human being. You know what those menstruhaters need? A tampon to the face. Or, you know, better education and a society that teaches them not to bee so squeamish about others peoples' bodies, but gosh—throwing tampons is so much more cathartic.

    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.

  12. Flash Drive Shaped Like a Tampon Fools Nobody, Probably Works Just Fine (As a USB Drive)

    Bloody Good Fun

    We live in an age now where we're basically tripping over USB drives emblazoned with the logo and stuffed with the press of whatever company is trying to sell you a thing, but I do remember a day when obtaining a USB drive was a thing you had to deliberately do. If you're in the market to deliberately obtain a USB drive, this might be one you'd consider obtaining. But I'm going to recommend that, if you do buy one, that you buy it purely because it's kinda funny, and not because you think its little masquerade will keep people from finding your USB drive. Because this is not how a tampon appears in the "wild," so to speak.

  15. Cersei Lannister On An Age-Old Tampon Question

    Olden Lore

    Jezebel recently made a very interesting archaeological discovery, only to find out that weirdly enough, it wasn't that old. Apparently, over at the site for Tampax tampons, the resident expert on all things menstrual was asked by a concerned mother if tampons would "take her daughter's virginity." We'll defer to 'Bel's commentary on that, because there was a similar, more interesting question asked in the comments by one (fictional) concerned mother on a hit HBO series.
