Anonymous said: What sort of fabrics would you recommend for reusable pads? Any that are particularly absorbent/comfortable? Thanks!
Terrycloth is supposedly best because it’s the most absorbent but I’ve only ever used cotton or flannelette because it’s easier to find around the house and I’m cheap. Also cotton or fleece is the most comfortable on your vulva in my opinion. I do a bottom layer of PUL which is a water-repellant material (usually used in baby diapers) that prevents leakage. I also get cheap fabric scraps from Joann’s or wherever for the bottom layer because I like my pads to look cute. Make sure you wash your cloth before sewing or it can shrink! Good luck!
What the fuck is the problem with masturbating while on your period? It’s smooth, wet and hella fun

Well I didn’t get a chance to take nice pictures of my Thanksgiving outfit, but here it is in a nutshell. The Period Power t-shirt from American Apparel with matching glossy red lips. I love this t-shirt so much. It features a person masturbating and menstruating.
I haven’t gone downstairs to unveil my special holiday outfit but I’m sure all of my older backward-thinking Mexican aunts and uncles will looooove it!

Menstrual Blood - gaphic tablet
- when people say it, it feels like they are afraid of saying “menstrual products” like actually naming menstruation is too dirty and impolite so we have to say “feminine hygiene.”
- it unnecessarily genders objects; not everyone who uses menstrual products wants to feel feminine, for many different reasons. it’s just unnecessary and alienating to some people.
- it’s weird and vague?? soap is a hygiene product that is used by feminine people? i know this is a bit silly, most people know what you are talking about when you refer to “feminine hygiene products” but it’s just another way of like mystifying something trivial like tampons for little kids
idk?? like i don’t want to make anyone feel bad for using this term, so if you have a reason for using it that i don’t understand, please feel free to message me and i’d love to hear about it but i just feel like this term is super unnecessary and problematic
