Watching Men Be Utterly Baffled By Tampons Is Your New Favorite Thing

Oh man… this is funny.

It’s no wonder these men are confused: feminine hygiene products are pretty ridiculous, when you stop to think about them. Take the packaging for one. I mean, seriously? I don’t need a pantyliner to be wrapped in a plastic sheet covered in daisies to feel okay about using one. And who was the genius behind the idea that these things need to be scented? Never have I ever wanted my vagina to smell like a baby diaper. Baby powder-scented feminine products need to die in a fire.

I guess I never realized how hilarious it would be to see a man confusedly handling those postpartum maxi-diapers we’re forced to use. The fact that we even get those in our underwear is an impressive feat. “This seems massive. This seems a little unnecessary,” remarks one of the dudes. Right? The scary thing is, those are totally necessary. Let’s just all stop and give ourselves a pat on the back for ever having to endure one of those things in our pants.

The tampon confusion, while extremely funny, is also a little terrifying. Come on guys — it’s not rocket science. There’s not that many holes down there. It’s not a skee-ball target.

“These are expensive as well -that’s the worst thing. You have to pay so much money for this shit,” says one of the men. So true! “It’s a lot of hassle for them to have to go through, man. Could we not figure out something easier, that involves lasers?”

If only.
