Watch This Fan-Made Video Of The Infamous Tampon Scene From Fifty Shades Of Grey

OH MY!

Fifty Shades of Grey isn’t supposed to be a comedic novel, but I found myself laughing quite a bit while reading the series, mostly because of the horrendous writing and ridiculous dialogue, and I expect I’ll have the same reaction when I go see the movie adaptation on Valentine’s Day. (Yes, that’s what I’m doing on V-Day, don’t judge me.) Only, I know I won’t laugh quite as hard as I did when reading the book, because the filmmakers have apparently cut the book’s best scene from the movie. Like, they didn’t even bother to film it. Obviously I’m talking about the scene in which Christian Grey super-sexy-sexually yanks out Anastasia’s tampon before railing her against the sink. I know, you don’t understand how this scene didn’t make the film either, right? Luckily, a couple years ago, some hardcore Fifty Shades fan made their own video of the infamous scene, and I’m pretty sure if Fifty Shades director Sam Taylor-Wood sees it, she’ll realize that she made a mistake.

The Sordid Tale Of An Unaccounted For Tampon (In GIFs!)

Womanhood is a glorious, many-petaled flower. (Or something.) But there are some times when being a lady really sucks. Like, say, when you know you put a tampon in the night before and  you know you didn’t take it out and now you can’t find it. It’s really missing. Seriously, where did that little bugger go?! Join me on every step of this special journey, after the jump… Keep reading »

This Is What Tampon Commercials Look Like In Russia

This Is What Tampon Commercials Look Like In Russia
Sharks are circling!

In Russia, you don’t have period, period has YOU! In all seriousness, this Russian Tampax commercial (very graphic, by the way, so if you’re squeamish, skip), shows the imagined terror of mixing periods and open water swimming. Any truth to the notion that periods attract sharks? According to Vancouver Aquarium spokesperson Ann Dreoloni, “Honestly, I think the jury is still out on this question. According to what I have read so far, there are people who believe the chance of a shark attack is greater while menstruating … and others who think this has absolutely no impact on shark attacks at all.”  And shark behavior expert Ralph S. Collier says, adorably uncomfortably, “If it’s a young lady for whom it’s that time of the month, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Better to wait till everything is back to normal to go into the ocean.” Ha! Normal. How antiquated. In any case, two shark experts is enough to convince me — I’m staying on the shore when sharks are in the water. [LiveLeak]

"You're Gross & Weird & No One Understands You"

“Tampon Vs. Moon Cup Rap Battle” just might be the most clever advertising I’ve ever seen about periods (not that that’s saying much, as the bar is set rather low). Props to the Moon Cup people for realizing that some people just think they’re a bunch of gross, weird, period blood-collecting hippies. They kinda are, but Moon Cups are way better for environment and vaginal dryness! I think I learned more about how my vagina works from this video than in years of health class. [YouTube]

Weird Crime Of The Day: Flaming Tampon Attack On Car

“Flaming Tampon” might sound like the next indie rock sensation, but not in this case.

Pennsylvania State Police say Patricia Deshong, 25, and Quentin Deshong, 22, who were arrested Jan. 7 in in Metal Township, Penn., after allegedly attempting to blow up a vehicle outside of a bar using flaming feminine hygiene products, according to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun.

The incident took place outside the Hillside Tavern at around 2:50 a.m., after officers got a report that a man and woman were allegedly vandalizing a green 2006 Ford Fusion car in the bar parking lot, the website reports. Read more…

When pop culture depicts transgender people, they usually do it in such a facepalm way that I wonder why anyone bothers anymore. The latest what-were-you-thinking? comes courtesy of Libra tampons in New Zealand, which aired a commercial that implies trans folks who dress as women are not “real women.” The commercial shows an ostensibly “real” woman standing next to a trans person in the bathroom, who I guess is a drag queen. They both put on their lip gloss and mascara and adjust their boobs in their tight party dress. Then the “real” woman pulls a tampon out of her purse. The drag queen makes a “hmmph!” face and walks away. Keep reading »
