Lock a man in a room with a box of tampons and ask him to figure out how one works, chances are you’ll come back to find all of them dislodged from their applicators and him crying.
A video of four men playing with tampons and other feminine hygiene products gives credence to the idea that they really have no clue about what women go through on a monthly basis. While some men find the mere thought of a tampon or maxi pad to be abhorrent, this group of guys seems to be more amazed than anything.
Marvel as they describe a tampon as a “weird bullet thing” and “a shooting mechanism,” and completely screw up the wings of a pad. At one point, they’re asked to show where the tampon goes on a female reproductive system model, and one of the men first removes the bladder.
As one comments, “I’m sure this comes with practice.”
Let’s just be grateful that we don’t live in a world where men get their periods.
