A queer hardcore band named DivaCup? Yes. Yes, please.
Hey Ladies!!!! Let’s talk about good #pussy health and how most products that are marketed toward us for our monthly cycle are fucked up for us. Did you know (and this coming from a regular tampon user) that tampons and some sanitary napkins are often loaded with harmful chemicals that a) cause us to bleed more, which makes more money for them, b) cause us more discomfort in the form of cramps which translate into more money for them and c) leak harmful chemicals into our bodies that affect our brains as well (your PMS could be a side effect of the chemicals on your monthly cycle products).
Here is an alternative to all that. I give you the Diva Cup. Just picked up mine today. Done a lot of research on it. Have some homegirls who have been using it for awhile. It cost $40 (but stop and think about how much money you spend a month on tampons and maxi pads. Shit adds up after a year). I highly suggest ya’ll do some research. I got mine at whole foods but I know you can order them online. Check it out ladies. #WhatAreYouPuttingInYourBody
Yes! Love this. Also that lip colour is bad ass.
Hippie TMI time
Just tried out luna pads for the first time.
Extremely comfy. The insert works well but can get a little lose if you do running. Never enough to cause any leakage though. The company says they can last up to two years so I don’t have to stress about supplies abroad. And no chemicals close to the place you don’t want chemicals close too.
They actually last 3-5 years on average, but many of our customers report using the same Lunapads for up to 10!

Someone asked us:
I’d really like to get an IUD, but I’ve been using a menstrual cup for the past year or so. I hated pads and tampons, so I really don’t want to give up using the cup. I have one friend with an IUD who says she still uses her cup and everything’s just fine, and another…
We don’t actually have an obligation to wax our legs.
When I was going to college in Berkeley I lived in this extremely bizarre vegan co-op that was filled with white people that were “into trees” and vegan food. They had this thing called “Naked Pizza Friday” where…
Love this spelling of “mxnstruation” and everything else about this article!
Q:I am a 20 year old virgin and I've noticed that my period is late by a few days. What could be causing this? I'm definitely not pregnant, right?
(Hello fair anonymous human!
You are not pregnant. It’s probably just a missed period. Your body’s still sorting out how things work with menstruation, and it will go back to normal soon enough. If this cycle continues, Sea Bear would recommend going to a doctor, though. )
Remember menstruators; not everyone has a 28 day cycle. In fact most people don’t! Try tracking your cycle to find out what’s normal for you, cause all cycles are unique. Personally, my cycle varies anywhere from 25-32 days in length, so “a few days late” is actually totally normal.
