Meet the groundbreaking company, HelloFlo, a tampon subscription service (Saving single fathers from drug store embarassment since 2013). I briefly considered that this might be a bit indelicate for my blog, then I realized I was being an idiot. These are things every post-pubescent person needs to know about. Not only are they imparting valuable information to people who need it, their mockumentary style delivers the information in a very palatable format, to boot.
Before I show you the videos, I wanted to talk a bit about their website. There’s a really great feeling of support on this site. I was particularly impressed with their blog’s treatment of trans teens, their resource center for menopausal women, and their feature “Ask Dr. Flo,” which may sound like a joke but really isn’t. It deals with everything from early puberty to missed birth control doses to an explanation of assisted reproduction technologies. It’s a surprisingly thorough resource employing easy-to-understand language while still teaching the proper names for things. I really wish it had been around when I was a tween.
Pass it on!
