Lady Gaga’s Period Piece At The MTV Video Music Awards

The highlight performance from last night’s MTV Video Music Awards — for me anyway — was the divine Lady Gaga‘s “Phantom of the Opera”-esque rendition of “Paparazzi.” In the music video for the song, she gets shot up by the paps, but in her live performance, she looked like she had a massive brawl with…

What Was Your First Period Like?

If Tyra Banks can share with everyone on “The Tyra Show” when she got her first period—during 11th grade, at her dad’s house—so can The Frisky editors. I’ll start!

Mine came the summer after 7th grade on the second morning of sailing lessons at the local country club. (Shut up, I’m a WASP.)…

Tyra’s First-Ever Period Show Was Bloody Fantastic!

I can think of lots of momentous events I wouldn’t want human pit bull/Baby Phat designer Kimora Lee Simmons around for — and inserting a tampon in my coochie for the very first time is one of them. But on “The Tyra Show”‘s first-ever program all about periods, Tyra Banks shared how, at the ripe-old…

Doin’ It With Dr. V: Period Sex

This week, I got a letter from a lady who is wondering if she can let her date play Moses and part the Red Sea.
“I have recently been flirting with an old hookup and we have both been hinting at wanting to rekindle the affair. We live in different cities, and he i…

Period Reducing Birth Control May Not Be Creepy, But It’s Definitely Uncomfortable

I don’t get lady times once a month. In fact, I don’t get it ever. Due to babymaker problems that you’d prefer not to think about (trust me), I’ve been on a constant stream of birth control for six months so as to avoid more surgery. In short, my reproductive system doesn’t function.

Debate This: Are Drugs That Get Rid Of Your Period Creepy?

With all the advances in technology and medical research, it’s about damned time someone discovered a way to minimize or eliminate that inconvenient monthly scourge we ladies call our period. Or so drugs like Seasonale and Lybrel, which advertise their ability to reduce or annihilate a monthly period (respectively) would have you believe. As anyone…

My Period Is Not A Natural Disaster, Thank You Very Much

Yesterday, as I was flipping through People, I came across an advertisement that scared me to death. What was it marketing? Feminine hygiene products, of course. Because, I mean, what could be scarier than a period?! The Always Infinity ad features a dangerous tornado-like whirlpool swirling ominously into a gigantic maxi pad. A pad that,…

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.

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:…

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…

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 whe…

The Kardashian Sisters Gossip About Aunt Flo

I’m just gonna say it. I love the Kardashian sisters. They really know about family values. Here they are instructing their littlest sister, Kendall, about periods! I don’t know about you, but even I learned something, and I’ve had my period since I was 12. [E!: Keeping Up With The Kardashian's]…
