Watch Men Struggle To Explain Periods And Tampons

Periods can be a complicated topic for many people, but when you give a box of tampons and a chart of a woman's reproductive system to a group of men, something like this is bound to happen.

In a new video by Buzzfeed, a few brave men decide to take on the world of periods and all things that come with it. From trying to explain where the blood comes from (like in the so-called cavities in your urethra) to understanding how to use a tampon (no, we don't use them as party poppers), watching these innocent and somewhat accurate remarks about periods is highly entertaining for anyone.

And hey, before we laugh at these men, remember: we were probably just as confused when we first got our periods or learned how to use a tampon. And even so, periods are not just a five to seven-day cycle — they are part of a larger reproductive cycle that can last anywhere from 21 to 36 days.
