    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...

    But Only If This Is What Periods Are Like...

    The lady in the ad is Koyuki, a Japanese actress who is a megastar. And yes, the ad is about "sanitary napkins". I don't mean any disrespect to any women who are made miserable every month by their periods. But this is how menstrual periods are dealt with in...

    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...

    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...

    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...
