Considering the judgment, the taboo, and whatnot women get to hear, courtesy 'menstruation' (a biological process that's out of our control, by the way), it was amazing to see the reactions that these men had.

"This is not comfortable."

"There's no healthy breeze around my privates anymore."

"Is it really itchy?"

And then there was of course, a hidden social message.

"The reason I'm feeling so icky about it is because men never talk about it."

"If someone asks us, we should be able to answer. Don't just go like, go to mummy. No!"

So the next time your boyfriend/friend/anyone who is not female gives you grief for getting your period, show him this. Plus, talk about it people, there's no shame here.
