Lee Hyori promotes cloth pads for women on her blog


Article: Lee Hyori even recommends female products on her blog

Source:
Ilgan Sports via Nate

1. [+1,370, -154] People should refrain from posting hateful comments because she obviously did not post this for males to read. Women who care about the environment have shared this kind of information with each other for a while now. Normal pads aren't good for women's bodies and cause bad cramps so I go out of my way to use cloth pads no matter how lazy I get. It's great information to share with women to better help the environment so please don't hate on her. The journalist's exact intention was to post this and get her hate.

2. [+1,111, -135] She may be a famous figure but it's just her blog. Why call her a tryhard for posting about her life on her blog? Her posting on her blog is not a problem... journalists reposting it into articles is the problem.

3. [+874, -97] People criticizing her for promoting it... ㅋ Isn't promoting something good for the environment a good thing? She's not making a business off of it or naming a specific brand. She sewed it and made it herself with natural materials. Why judge someone's lifestyle?

4. [+98, -79] Make sure you use cloth diapers when you have a baby too ㅋ

5. [+61, -7] It's really hard to use and manage cloth pads but women go through it to lessen cramps and a lot use it like Lee Hyori to protect the environment. I don't know why men are responding so negatively to something that is natural to women and I'm sad that the journalist posted this up like bait to hate on her.

6. [+54, -47] I don't know how the busy modern woman can use this. Yeah sure, Lee Hyori's rich and does nothing at home all day so she has time for this but for a woman to go through four a day and have to carry it all home after work... It's certainly good for you but not fit with our reality...

7. [+48, -5] Journalist, why turn posts meant for her blog readers into articles? Why? People will go to her blog if they're curious about her life, you don't need to put it out in the media like this. Do you have nothing better to write?

8. [+46, -49] Hmm...... I don't know what to say... I get that she's promoting a good thing but... To put up pads that she uses herself like that is kind of weird.

  4. I fucking hate pads. I went through one summer with those motherfuckers. Never again.

    ReplyDelete
  5. How is this supposed to be used ? We have to wash it again ?

    ReplyDelete
  6. at this point they should ban the pads ads then

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yeah. So long as you wash them thoroughly it's perfectly clean, and will save you a lot of money in the long run.

    ReplyDelete
  8. No thanks, I'm good with tampons.

    ReplyDelete
  9. It's cool for the environment and stuff... but isn't it kinda unhygienic? o.O

    ReplyDelete
  10. So she became a dirty hippie?

    ReplyDelete
  11. nah i bleed niagara falls

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've never heard of pads making cramps worse. Maybe because I never get cramps when I'm on my period...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Journalists and those making bad comments: http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lzifpiRuQ31qzt3y0.gif

    ReplyDelete
  14. as long as you wash it throughly, it's okay

    ReplyDelete
  15. my back kills me everytime i'm on period.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wait so i'll have to wash my disgusting flow?......I'll stick to my tampons.....

    ReplyDelete
  17. yeah sounds like hoax

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yea, I agree with the comment that this is not practical for the typical busy working girl. I think the Diva cup may be more practical than the cloths. Anyway, good for her for promoting environmentally friendly options. And to the men posting negative reviews, screw them time 1 mil. Like wtf do they have to comment on? They don't have to get periods, so they shouldn't have crap to say either way.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Also I don't know how to feel about Lee Hyori becoming the korean GOOP.

    ReplyDelete
  20. How about the water wastage?
    And I worry about leakage and staining issue.

    ReplyDelete
  21. "I don't know why men are responding so negatively to something that is natural to women"

    ofc it's the men >____>

    ReplyDelete
  22. Me neither. Sometimes my legs/thighs will ache though. Can range from being slightly annoying to unbearable.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just put them in with your normal laundry.


    As for leakage, I don't know about that because my flow isn't that heavy. Cloth pads work great for me but my flow is light.

    ReplyDelete
  24. not going to use this, im comfortable enough with pads.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My lower back hurts all the time due to my illness and sometimes it becomes a little worse when I'm on period but I've never experienced tummy aches...

    ReplyDelete
  26. that what grandmothers used to do...

    ReplyDelete
  27. everyone's body works differently. some things that cause cramps for some people won't be the same as others. maybe it's a big thing over there? who knows.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You lucky soul! My cramps get worse as I get older :( But yea I have never heard non-cloth pads making cramps worse either.

    ReplyDelete
  29. No way... I don't even wash my stained panties with normal laundry. The smell is just too overpowering.

    ReplyDelete
  30. yes.. my grandma told me they use to do so when she was young

    ReplyDelete
  31. Never heard that either.....but then i don't get cramps or any type of pain, the only way i know i'm bout to start or am on is when i see a pimple or two on my face.......

    ReplyDelete
  32. i figured that shampoo actually works really good in removing the stain

    ReplyDelete
  33. Pads, cloth or no, aren't for everyone, but they do ease cramps since tampons only stay in place because the muscles are working, and increase the chances you'll have more / worse cramps.


    I know it's better for the environment, and good for her for even making them herself, but I don't know if I could use cloth ones. Maybe I'll work up to that lol.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I had a friend who couldn't leave her bed when on period because her stomach hurt so badly D: I really do consider myself lucky

    ReplyDelete
  35. these are actually really good for you. i use them in the summer when i dont have a busy schedule. its hard with school and jobs but if you have time to maintain it, its a lot healthier than tampons and plastic pads. it helps with cramps and it helps with ph balance which tampons and plastic pads can fuck up

    ReplyDelete
  36. And the next thing we know we're in the red sea

    ReplyDelete
  37. Always appropriate imo

    ReplyDelete
  38. i always use pads, don't dare to use tampons like put it inside me no T^T

    ReplyDelete
  39. I've never known about these cloth pads.... It's commendable that people go through the trouble to use them tho

    ReplyDelete
  40. How will you put blood stained pads with normal laundry?.....

    ReplyDelete
  41. People don't have to use them if they don't like the idea but it's good to let as many women know about all the options as possible. Plastic pads, tampons, DivaCups, cloth pads... if you know all the options available then you can make an informed decision about what's best for you personally.

    ReplyDelete
  42. My mom used to use these when she was growing up and she told me they were a pain in the butt to clean and would always leak everywhere and stain all her clothes. I do know a lot of environmentally conscious people use menstrual cups though, but the idea of sticking a giant piece of plastic up my junk still kind of scares me.

    ReplyDelete
  43. same here the pain shoots down to my calves. one time it was so bad that i just fell and blacked out.. thank god i was home lol

    ReplyDelete
  44. Damn, why she gotta be a dirty hippie, though hahahaha I say with all the crazy things going on with our environment, every little bit helps. We all could do something to reduce our carbon footprint on this Earth.

    ReplyDelete
  45. me too like, thanks for telling me that I'm not pregnant but can you go away now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I swear to God if you threw a tampon/pad at a group of boys, they'll freak out as if someone threw a grenade at them lol.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hyori I love you but I can barley look at my used pads let alone use a cloth one and wash it

    ReplyDelete
  48. 6. [+54, -47] I don't know how the busy modern woman can use this. Yeah sure, Lee Hyori's rich and does nothing at home all day so she has time for this but for a woman to go through four a day and have to carry it all home after work... It's certainly good for you but not fit with our reality...

    ^this pretty much. the least thing I want in my handbag is 3-4 pads full of blood.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Same here even with a tampon and pad I still leak and it hurts like a bitch

    ReplyDelete
  50. i have same problem, but only last a day or two. if its getting worst, i even puke..

    ReplyDelete
  51. YOU HAVE TO WASH THIS!!???

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yes! Lee Hyori is very cool, always

    ReplyDelete
  53. 6. [+54, -47] I don't know how the busy modern woman can use this.

    Hyori didn't asked u to use that lol
    And btw thanks hyori for sharing an important information!

    ReplyDelete
  54. actually i've used this type of pads when i ran out the normal one . its seems more comfortable cause it made of by fabric and easy to wash .

    idk how to explain but washing pads ( either the fabric or the normal one that we buy in store ) is a must for girls in my country .

    ReplyDelete
  55. yes....they use to used this in the past... pretty normal for some people

    ReplyDelete
  56. Literally me

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'll stick to tampons.... And seriously? Why do men feel the need to go out of their ways to express how gross and displeasing periods are to them? It's natural and frankly, I don't think it's that big of a deal.

    ReplyDelete
  58. when i was in high school, my friend almost fainted due to the pain

    ReplyDelete
  59. and I guess there's a reason it was abolished^^

    ReplyDelete
  60. I use hydrogen peroxide for staining. But really as long as the leak doesn't dry on the cloth, regular ole detergent should do the trick.

    ReplyDelete
  61. normao ones? you mean the plastic pads?> you wash them too?

    ReplyDelete
  62. If men got periods they'd be boasting about how heavy their flow was and how they many tampons they went through in one day.

    ReplyDelete
  63. i will cleaned and removed them first with shampoo or body wash , then i will put it in my normal laundry .

    ReplyDelete
  64. lmao I just recalled http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lxz2cbeeSP1qzk7gi.gif

    ReplyDelete
  65. yes ^^ before we throw them , we wash it first .

    ReplyDelete
  66. That reason was convenience, not hygiene.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I have the same problem it also gives me back pain no actually it makes my back pain (19 yrs old btw) come back and I feel nauseous for a good few days like a pregnant lady luckily I don't throw up

    ReplyDelete
  68. It wasn't abolished hahaha It's just time consuming for some. It's easier to use disposable pads and tampons. However, it is better to use cloth pads. It's hard though IMO

    ReplyDelete
  69. Okay i understand it is good for the environment etc etc But its so hard to take it off and wash it again and again What if you have to change your pad in the public Where would you put it?

    ReplyDelete
  70. What muscles work to keep tampons in place...?

    ReplyDelete
  71. boys need to be educated abt these things at a young age bc it's literally nothing????? but they make such a big deal out of it istg.
    can't even ask them to hold a pack of pads ur gonna buy in the supermarket w/o them fearing for their life.

    ReplyDelete
  72. dear male population of south korea, feel free to stop reading and leave if the topic of periods and pads is too much for you to handle or doesn't interest you. but hate on a woman talking about women's life to other women?? just what is wrong with you people?

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think she has no other way to stay fresh and relevant. She really doesn't have anything to "sell" other than an image.

    ReplyDelete
  74. actually it have not been abolished, jsut that womens became more busy, some that are housewives still use it, they said is actually confortable compared to the other ones

    ReplyDelete
  75. http://i.imgur.com/lEirbcO.gif

    ReplyDelete
  76. wow, i know something new today. i can't even look at them after using. But isn't it inconvenient? you can just throw them away

    ReplyDelete
  77. Probably in a black plastic bag in your handbag to bring home.

    ReplyDelete
  78. i want present a site community easy to talk about everything

    ReplyDelete
  80. Why does girl has to endure this thing call period?!!! Why D': ?!!!!! Natural modification why?!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. man, I couldnt, like....no....

    ReplyDelete
  82. They hate being reminded that women are real people with bodily functions, not sex fairies who don't poop.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm 19 y'o too, every month is different than the other tbh sometimes I don't get cramps at all and everything is peaceful and sometimes, it's just hell. Like last month, I had to go to the hospital and get an injection to calm down. It also gives me pain in my knees. I hate periods.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I am the same! I always thought holy crap if this is like a really mild preview of pregnancy, then I.do.not.want! lol

    ReplyDelete
  85. agree, man will never get it

    ReplyDelete
  86. Does it billed through to the other side as well since it's cloth?!!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. maybe because i used to it ? i didn't feel anything . not that i touched that 'thing' . just put quite high pressure of water towards it , and it will flow out with the water .

    ReplyDelete
  88. i guess something is wrong with me it only hurts on 1st day for me after that its like normal days for me



    should i be happy :P

    ReplyDelete
  89. was wondering the same, also, how much do the absorb?

    ReplyDelete
  90. what the fuck is this????

    ReplyDelete
  91. Amen! If we didn't get periods, none of them would be here!

    ReplyDelete
  92. this, they feel secure and much more comfortable using cloth pad. they don't reuse it though, like why would you. .

    ReplyDelete
  93. ah O_o what did i just see...

    ReplyDelete
  94. That's cool but I bleed like waterfall so.... no thanks

  95. so basically korean goop.

    try the menstrual cups lol

    ReplyDelete
  96. Haha, I went to an all girls' school and tbh one of the best parts was how candid & sympathetic we were towards each other about periods. Being able to lie on the floor of the classroom at break in agony because of period pain and your friends going to the tuck shop to buy chocolate for you whilst somebody else asked if they wanted to get you a hot water bottle was pretty standard and it was great.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Yes! Pat yourself on the shoulder because mine killed me with stomach cramp and back pain like an assholes!

    ReplyDelete
  98. im kinda lucky that my period used to be super heavy but now it last me only 3 days and i get it 3-6 times a year.



    but yeah i kinda like the cramp pain, it isnt so bad for me .

    ReplyDelete
  99. im the same, let's be gratefull

    ReplyDelete
  100. How do regular pads cause cramps?

    ReplyDelete
  101. yep it just like u said, some peopel that use it rigth now dont re-used it,.. in the past yes they use too ( that what my grandma said)

    ReplyDelete
  102. periods do make us get problems at such a young age I figured I should go on something birth control so it controls my period too but I don't want the pills I ma very bad at taking pills I forget to take antibiotics

    ReplyDelete
  103. mm that is not normal u should go to a doctor , u could have problems to get pregnanat after.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I would use tampons but I don't think they sell it on my side and I'm too afraid to shove something down there. .

    ReplyDelete
  105. Ha! I just remembered that scene in Personal Taste where Jinho had to buy pads for Kae-In. He was all shy trying to pick up the pads in front of those girls hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  106. You are lucky. Mine lasts like 9 days and the 3rd and 4th days are like hell.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I didn't cramp when I was younger but now I cramp (especially in my back) even before I come on. I get nauseated and throwing up is a monthly occurrence :/ And sometimes it's irregular. I may come on every 3 weeks (instead of the 4 weeks that I'm used to) and it'll last for 5 days. It's terrible :( A heating pad, pain meds, and nausea pills are my best friends lol

    ReplyDelete
  108. natural sponges are good too. just fyi there's a youtuber Laci Green who did a video on alternatives to disposable tampons and pads.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I so want to try this but it took me forever to even use tampons. I'll get there eventually.

    ReplyDelete
  110. isn't that unusually long mine used to last 4 to 5 days pain that starts the day before till the 3rd day of the bleeding curse

    ReplyDelete
  111. i want to try it... but i m even too lazy to wash the stain on my undies lol...

    ReplyDelete
  112. she said they change it after true the day,...and watch them in the night

    ReplyDelete
  113. 9 days?? omg i last 5 days hardly .....fighting! :P

    ReplyDelete
  114. Oookaaay people its not like you have never seen a fucking pad

    ReplyDelete
  115. liz is right irregular period aint right you need a check up

    ReplyDelete
  116. Oh wow, netizen 6, I didn't know you were in a Lee Hyo Ri's personal life to say that she does nothing all day. How intriguing. Tell me more. You MUST be an insider.

    ReplyDelete
  117. The best part is they don't always confirm you're not pregnant :)

    ReplyDelete
  118. Nah, I know some girls whose period last 10 days to 15. Personally, mine last 2 days to 3 and I get cramps only on the half of the first day for like an hour or two. Longest hours in my life.

    ReplyDelete
  119. 8. [+46, -49] Hmm...... I don't know what to say... I get that she's promoting a good thing but... To put up pads that she uses herself like that is kind of weird.



    what's so fucking weird about a pad are you kidding me

    ReplyDelete
  120. I am 5 and what is this?

    ReplyDelete
  121. Women have it tough

    ReplyDelete
  122. Um.. I know tons of men that don't freak out? Maybe it's the BOYS that are weirded out by it. Most men are actually aware that periods are a thing and they suck for women.

    I like the little buttons on the 'wings'. I hate how on regular pads, the sticky part doesn't stick and slides(gross init). I'll give these and the diva cup a try. Just gotta find out the cost :3

    ReplyDelete
  124. well if u aree pregnant and u are bleeding ... something is not right, u should have a check up.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I was in seriously emergency of tampon so i asked my brother to get one ( i know) he looked like i asked him to kill someone. haha

    ReplyDelete
  126. It's usually between 7-9 days. 5 days just sounds beautiful lol

    ReplyDelete
  127. guys, stay away from this one lol girl time rn

    ReplyDelete
  128. @Liz thank you for worrying . i did go to a doctor i got an ultra sound and i got my hormones checked and they found nothing wrong with me D:


    my mother did have ovarian cyst that resulted in removing one of her ovaries. so i do keep that in mind and go yearly to the gyno!!

    ReplyDelete
  129. ugh i am seriously jealous of you. This days i feel like i am dying when i am on my period. I can hardly get up from the bed.

  134. I don't get why guys feel the need to say anything when it comes to periods???
    It's not like you see a bunch of girls commenting on..what guys have..?
    Sweaty balls, smegma, excessive ass hair idk...

    ReplyDelete
  138. haha this is the kind post or articles boys or men should stay away from.

    ReplyDelete
  139. Every month I get cramps and I've been noticing that the cramps are hurting more and lasting longer. Doesn't help that most pain relievers make me throw up. You're so lucky that you don't get cramps

    ReplyDelete
  140. me too... i think depends on which country or type of pads. as example in malaysia, we malay has a believe we need to wash our pads let the blood wash in the drain before throw it out. So far malaysia pads is washable. When i went to korea & having my period... their pads are non-washable & i learn new culture from other country lol

    p/s: btw using cloth pad is a traditional way... lol my mum & grandma did tell me that we girls nowdays has so muh comforttt.

    ReplyDelete
  141. speaking of periods did anyone see the picture of the ovary releasing an egg its really interesting??

    ReplyDelete
  142. RIP to all my cute undies that got ruined by stains

    ReplyDelete
  143. Goddamn yes, I can't stand pads i feel like im peeing myself... feels gross

    ReplyDelete
  144. yeah they act like what happens to our body is taboo or something

    ReplyDelete
  145. Wow....4 days ? Mine is just the 1st day (overdose of painkillers) and then no more pain xD

    ReplyDelete
  146. Awww, really? You should definitely try hydrogen peroxide or borax. Some posters also mentioned shampoo. I've used the hydrogen peroxide with great results, so I now have no more ruined undies.

    ReplyDelete
  147. i wonder what koreans think of vegans. they seem to make fun of hyori and she's not even one. my asian family thinks it's a waste of time and labor (cos you're asking someone to prepare food that's different and more complicated to cook in addition to all the other food) and money (cos it's usually more expensive), plus they seem to value their farmers a lot.


    as for the pads, idk if i could ever do that, considering i have to use those gigantic tena overnight pads lol. but i can actually see why it's helpful for koreans because they usually can't flush anything down the toilet, because apparently the sewage system is so old, so flushing tampons down the toilet are out of the question.

    ReplyDelete
  148. fucking periods cant they just be two days and a light flow why is it when i cough it explodes like a geyser lol this will be tmi for guys but girls will say i feel you

    ReplyDelete
  149. I think it's great that Hyori posted this...but why do people think synthetic pads cause worse cramps? What is that about?

    ReplyDelete
  150. lmao that reminds me of how i almost fainted last year. first period hadn't started yet so i felt like my teachers wouldn't let me go home, but my cramps were unbearable and it was also extremely hot that day. i don't know why, but i was wearing a freaking thick jumper in the middle of summer. i couldn't see a thing nor could i hear anything. i kinda ran all the way to my homeroom teacher bc his room was near where i was at. i ran eventhough i saw nothing. it was pretty funny.

    ReplyDelete
  151. i read somewhere that the synthetic pads have some chemicals inside or something like that and it causes cramps,

    ReplyDelete
  152. you'd save so much too, i always stock up when there's offers.. if i was bothered and had the time i'd consider this, like, you always leak anyway and you wash the pants and wear them again after, there's not much difference..

  157. In terms of water wastage doesn't it waste more water to constatly create more products. It would also be worse for the environment.

  159. I got mine early in primary school. My classmate told me I had blood on my dress. Worst situation in my life.

  160. Gwyneth Paltrow. she runs a blog, "goop", of amazing alternative lifestyle that's just impossible to follow. hence why so many people hate her.

  161. I use them, but I am not satisfied with using them. Still better than using pads (for me).

  162. Much period heaven going on right here.

  163. I wouldn't trust them. I would imagine that you'd have to change them every hour or so. Plus, that button doesn't look like it would keep them in place like the disposable ones.

  164. "Bleeding occurs during pregnancy for various reasons, some serious and some not. Some women have light bleeding or spotting very early in pregnancy – near the time their period is due – and they may mistake that for a period"

    Some women bleed throughout their pregnancy, and still give birth to healthy babies. It will look and feel like a period. So people often don't realize they're pregnant early. Every body is different.

  165. I have no idea how to use them so I just stay with pads ><

  166. i used bleach once and that was a race against time. it had to be soak enough for the stain to come out but not enough for the bleach to ruin my undies. and this is the first i hear of hydrogen peroxide i will try next time, and shampoo too!


    but now i have two sets of underwear. my cute undies and period-only undies lol :D

  167. Hi,yes I am man and no I don't care about your period or how gross it is.

  168. Same with me, minus the vomiting.
    There are times when it feels like someone is tying a knot with my ovaries, its very painful. The older I get, the worse it is. Some meds doesn't even work. My liver is going to be mush when I reach menopause because I pop pills every 2 hours when I'm on.

  172. I knew of a girl that had her period the whole time she was pregnant. She didn't know she was until her tummy grew.


    It was a healthy pregnancy but her mom was sure not happy about it lol

    ReplyDelete
  173. Same, I used to get only back cramps when I was younger now I get stomach also (only in the 1st day luckily). And I have throwed up two time because of my periods and it's the worst thing ever. I never use any medicine because I'm allergic to them.. so I just use heat pad and lay in fetal position on my bed. Luckily I don't have bad cramps every month. But I'm afraid I'm going to have morning sickness when I'm pregnant...

  174. I had a friend in highschool who used to get srsly sick whenver her period comes, i remember she told me about and i just couldn't imagine it, until one day i went to school in the morning and she was puking in the pin, i was srsly terrified, 5 minutes and her mom was there to take her home, poor girl has to go through this everymonth >~<

  175. My mother still uses cloth pads since they don't give her allergies. They absorb well, and it doesn't leak at all (and if you're having a heavy flow, you can just use a thicker cloth or double it).

  176. If a penis can fit in there then a small tampon should be no problem.

  177. Damn... this is nasty...

  186. Whenever your on period
    1. Don't wash your hair for few day(i know you will feel unclean)/ you can take shower
    2. Don't drink ice water
    :)

  187. 6. [+54, -47] I don't know how the busy modern woman can use this. Yeah sure, Lee Hyori's rich and does nothing at home all day so she has time for this but for a woman to go through four a day and have to carry it all home after work... It's certainly good for you but not fit with our reality...



    As awful as it is, the amount of feminine products that are thrown away, this is very true. It's just not realistic and convenient for everyone to use these. I'd like to at least try a little, though.

  188. 1. [+1,370, -154] People should refrain from posting hateful comments
    because she obviously did not post this for males to read. Women who
    care about the environment have shared this kind of information with
    each other for a while now. Normal pads aren't good for women's bodies
    and cause bad cramps so I go out of my way to use cloth pads no matter
    how lazy I get. It's great information to share with women to better
    help the environment so please don't hate on her. The journalist's exact
    intention was to post this and get her hate.

    what..? what is wrong with their pads? are they scented? i think non-scented ones are fine for your body, it's the scented ones that are bad.

    ReplyDelete
  189. Comment #6 makes a good point. I wouldn't want to be carrying around multiple bloody cloth pads throughout the day. I know they're better for the environment and saves you so much money but I like being able to dispose of them right away. Dx I hardly even want to touch the pad itself to remove it let alone keep it on my person for that long. I guess it's more of an at-home thing?


    Also I'm concerned about the leakage as well... Won't it leak through easily...? Especially for those heavier days and howabout overnight...? Hmm tbh I doubt she uses them as much. Someone who uses cloth pads should enlighten me on how it's done lol

  190. It's nice until everyone gets on the same schedule and then sometimes the tension can get pretty high... I synch pretty closely with my friends and sometimes we're trying not to kill each other ahaha.

  191. periods remind me of the time when i was a little kid and i saw my mom washing her leaked underwear and i asked her if she pooped her pants because i didnt know what periods were and she just told me it was poop and then i realized it wasnt
