8 Myths About Washable Menstrual Pads Dispelled

I found a link to this article on Twitter by Emira Mears about the reasons why some women aren't willing to try reuseable menstrual pads. I think it brings up a lot of good points.

Vulva Love Lovely

Hey ladies!  I am so excited to be joining the Period Piece team!  To initiate my contributions I thought I'd share and interesting shop I found on Esty recently.  This artist makes pillows, accessories, soaps, sculptures, and more all based on lady parts.  She also makes custom portrait pieces (you have to send her three pictures of your vulva area) that are really cool.

I was interested in her reasons for making all things vagina-related.  If you read her bio, you'll see that she has turned her painful past into a celebration of her vagina.  I love that she used art as a way to prove her own beauty to herself, and that now she shares her talents and positivity with other women.
I also think it's great that she makes washable, cloth menstrual pads to promote economical, healthy, and environmentally friendly living.
Here's a link to her homepage:  http://www.etsy.com/people/VulvaLoveLovely
There's a significant lack of love for the vagina, vulva, and menstruation and I think people like her are spreading a truly great message.

Advertisting humor (?)

So, in my journeys I came across this website which has "funny" tampon ads from around the world.

I really like the painted ladies one, not for it's humor, but for the fact that those women are very artistically painted. The rest of them I only find mildly amusing, but you should definately look at the painted ladies.

Also, FYI I have finals next week, and thus you may not hear from this particular contributor.

May the Force Be With You.
