    Give me the capacity for sexual pleasure that women possess and you have a deal. Throw in carrying and birthing children and see how fast I run.

    It's Not That Bad But Yes

    Mainly because when i am on my period he doesn't understand that I am bitchy because of the annoying cramps and boob pain, and sometimes you'll get a month where advil, and you take like 3 in an hour, doesn't work so you're like, oh well. Just sit here and try to sleep I guess...

    Why Just One?!

    It's true, men don't understand what we go through having periods and everything associated with them. But I think they should have to go through one every month, like we do, to fully understand how disabling menstruation can be for many of us. It's not just the bleeding...

    Oh Hell Yes

    The only bad thing would be that us women would have to put up with their whiny bitching. They would be able to take it like a man like us girls do! By the end of the week they would all apoligize for every insult they ever made about women on there periods. If they didn't go...

    Yeah, this is gonna sound like a weird

    sentiment coming from a man, but I know how little men understand about the whole process, what a girl feels and why. Explaining it to them doesn't help. So I guess the only way to get it is to feel it.

    No Givsies Backsies

    Maybe there would be less PMS jokes. Some women have easy-breezy periods, but others (like me) are in excruciating pain from beginning to end.

    No - Whats The Point.

    Men and women are different. We never ask you to experience that sex drive that makes us do things beyond crazy in order to get release. Men don't really laugh at a woman's period, but the stories of what men will do to have sex run from scary to laughable. Vive la différence...

    I Think Men Should Have To Go Through One Period.

    It would be pritty fricken sweet if men would bleed through their penises for 5 days every month to understand how annoying it is. I also think that they should have their balls squeezed with a wrench every 5 minutes during sed period to get the feel of what cramps are like. I...

    I Wish I Could!!!!

    I wish I could have my period for a year. I have tried several simulations and even given myself enemas to simulate cramping, but I know deep down it is not the same. I always had little sympathy for my wife when she had her period and now I really feel guilty. If I...

    I Can Just See It Now

    Have To Feel It To Understand!

    I just wish that men could feel what we women feel. I don't know about you ladies out there, but I feel like I am a big  heavy sack of over sized potatoes during PMS. Hormones changing month by month does have many affects. Men frankly don't go through it...

    Yeah!!! I said this to my stepdad one time

    why don't you try having a period see how you find it! I was completely mortified because he had spotted a small trace of blood I'd left in the bathroom and then made a comment about it at the dinner table in front of everyone! I just got up and left the room. My period had been...
