VIDEO: Irish men get to grips with tampons, sanitary pads and pantyliners

“These are party tampons.”

THESE IRISH GUYS were asked to examine their (very hazy) knowledge of sanitary towels, tampons and pantyliners.

As they examine the ‘feminine hygiene products’, they learn A LOT.

To be honest, it’s a must watch.

Here’s just a small selection our favourite lines: 


“Look, I’ve already stuck the wing to the back of it.”

“It’s so thin, it feels like wearing nothing at all,” he says with the right amount of skepticism. Thanks, brother.


“I reckon you’re taking a gamble with this one [pantyliner]”

Is it like chewing gum, you’re expected to keep the wrapper in your pocket?”

“It looks like some sort of shooting mechanism.”


“One of these is babies.”


“You have a string hanging out of you like a party popper.”


“These feel industrial.”

“This seems massive. This seems unnecessary.”

And after all that? The consensus:

I’m glad I don’t menstruate.

“These are expensive as well, that’s the worst thing. You have to pay so much money for this shite.”

Preach, sisters.
