SO APPARENTLY THE WORLD LOVES MENSTRUAL CUPS (PLUS A GIVEAWAY FROM GLADRAGS!)


I get the feeling that menstrual cups are like Jeeps.

As in, you're gonna be one of two people: the person who is deeply immersed in the sub-culture and knows all the super secret hand gestures OR the person who's so oblivious that you don't even understand the bumperstickers.

Menstrual cups apparently have the same cult-ey following as those bad-ass vehicles but I never knew until I posted this article about them from Marie Claire on my FB page and the comment section flooded with things like "8 years strong and never going back!" "Less money, less waste, less cramping!" and "THESECUPS4LYFE!!!" This was then followed by an in depth Q and A thread between newbies and the Cup Masters. Some of these were friends that I've known nearly a decade and somehow, I'd forgotten to interrogate them about their bleeding habits- WHAT OTHER IMPORTANT THINGS ARE YOU NOT TELLING ME GUYS?!?

It's a cup thing. I wouldn't understand.

ANYHOW, this is all relevant (I promise there's a point) because Tracy from Gladrags emailed me about a giveaway on TMB my reaction was two fold: If not here, then WHERE? And: I need to know more about this period voodoo technology NOW.

Thanks to the internet we know know that the world is REALLY weird about crotch things (the ones that don't involve penises) but if you're a realist and know that shedding happens and your parts need some TLC. Well, then I like you and you should enter your info below.



Giveaways happen when someone contacts me and says: I wanna buy a specific spot on your blog so I can give free awesome shit to your readers. To which I say: does it involve heavy metal music, sunscreen, or goat cheese? (I hate those things) and when they come back and say NO, actually it's really awesome you'll definitely like it!, chances are I'll investigate and then say... OKAY! Let's do this.

This then means that I'm renting out some real estate, they're getting exposure, and you're getting presents year round. Which is amazing for everyone and I'm kinda sad I haven't done these more. Things to know: depending on who it is, they might letcha follow their social media accounts to have extra entry options. But no matter what, I always ask that there is a chance for everyone to enter at least once without having to "like" or "follow" anything. If you want to be an overachiever beyond that, it's up to y'all. Like and follow away.

AND, of course, if you think giveaways are bullshit, you're allowed to skip everything all together and just come back for my next post which will likely be about how much I never knew I liked Rochester. You're a grown ass adult and you get to make your own decisions, mmkay?


Gladrags wants you to join the cup cult try one of their fucking amazing kits that will supply you with everything it takes to rethink tampons. One of you will get to choose a group of essentials (from here) up to $150. Neato, yeah?

Enter away! Giveaways will run for one week and Tracy from Gladrags will contact you if you're the lucky bitch that fate (kfine, Rafflecopter) chooses!
