Nikhil P. Freeman Menstrual miseries and vaginal vicissitudes; having recently experienced an awkward, uncomfortable, silence with an friend after seeing one of those “embarrassing feminine itch” commercials followed by one of those “have a happy period” commercials—my mind went to what in the hell is going on down there, this is seriously way too much (or not really enough) information during a “The Price Is Right” commercial break, and how is it possible to have a happy period (always!) when the vajayjay has a bad case of the itchy-scratchies. As a man, most of my experiences with periods have been traumatic—from the plug it up scene in “Carrie”, having to carry home a classmate in middle school who passed out on the sidewalk with blood streaming down her legs, to my own best friend chewing my head off after I said good morning to her and she responded “I am not in the mood for your bullshit today!”. So I hope to be educated on such a touchy subject that all of the women deal—but can’t outright discuss openly.
