Britney Spears Doesn’t Know What’s Appropriate At A Photo Shoot

Last year, Britney Spears totally embarrassed herself by acting erratic at an OK! Magazine photo shoot. She wiped her grease covered hands on a several thousand dollar dress. Her dog crapped on the floor, and Brit Brit used another dress to clean it up. Not to mention she once showed the world her period panties. Although Britney has cleaned up her act, she still doesn’t know what’s appropriate at a photo shoot. A spy for the New York Post, says the pop tart’s recent Elle shoot was a total disaster because she forgot about her period. Yes, Britney apparently ruined beautiful couture clothes with her menstrual blood. [NYPost.com]

I don’t know how this could happen to any adult woman. You don’t just forget about your period. There are several tell-tale signs, besides a bloody stain — sore breasts, cramping, irritable mood, or the fact that it comes every month, unless you’re pregnant or have some biological issue.

    Top Five Menstrual Songs

    I took a lot of women’s studies classes in college and even spelled women as “womyn” for a while, but I’ve never quite understood menstrual art. I have a lil’ soft spot for all the artists on this list, but it was loads of humorous fun pulling the lyrics for our Top Five Menstrual Songs:

    5. “Cause my swag is serious/Something heavy like a first-day period.” — Janet Jackson, “Feedback”, Discipline
    I’m confused. Janet’s periods are heavy on the first day? That sucks.

    The Nookie Know-It-All: Low Tide For The Crimson Wave

    “I’ve heard about the various birth control pills that you can take to go without your period for a few months and longer. Are they really safe and recommended?” — Banning Aunt Flo, via email

    Have you seen that SNL skit (clip after the jump!), where the women are going ape sh*t because they haven’t had their period in months? I have, and I have to say it scared that crap out of me. Keep reading »

    Athletes’ Ovaries

    Some really successful female athletes rarely or never get their periods. We would say this is unfair, except we’re not really into working that hard, physically. These athletes’ loss of periods was traditionally thought to be the cause of ridiculous training sessions and strict diets (and many still believe this to be true), but now some researchers think polycystic ovary syndrome may be the cause. Magnus Hagmar, a researcher at the Karolinska Institute, found that polycystic ovaries were much more common in athletes training for the Olympics compared with the average woman. Not only that, but this syndrome causes an increase in testosterone, which can result in a competitive advantage by helping women build muscle mass and absorb oxygen more easily — but they also might have excess body hair and acne. Ah, the price of gold. [BBC] Keep reading »

    Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Sex While Aunt Flo Is In Town

    We’ve been curious for awhile about what dudes think about having sex when a woman is on her period. I don’t like it, but not because it grosses me out — I’m just a clean freak and don’t like messes of any sort. But what about dudes? I got a wide mix of responses when I asked the guys on my IM. Check out what they had to say, after the jump! Keep reading »
