So I’ve been wearing a Diva Cup for 8 months and no one has congratulated me yet…?
Here’s everything you need to know
I LOVE my Diva Cup. I have to admit, at first I was totally like ew, a plastic cup in my pussy? Uh, no thank you. But after the fifth or sixth time using it, I started to think it might be just as effective as a tampon.
I have become a total Diva! No, seriously, I turning into a human Diva Cup. Kidding! I am just super passionate about these little plastic guys. I know some of you are still using those ancient feminine products, and I’m here to tell you: You’re stupid as shit. Read my pros and cons list about the cup, and you’ll make the right choice too.
Pro: Thanks to its super safe and supportive chamber, I can save and store my period blood to use for my artwork
I have a degree in fine arts from Colombia College Chicago, so I think I know.
Pro: It’s better for the environment than tampons
I have a heavy flow so it’s really very giving and selfless of me to use the cup, but I power through because I feel this moral obligation to save the planet. I just feel like this was what I was brought on Earth to do — and then to slowly make all my friends and coworkers resent me because I won’t stop talking about it.
Con: I spilled blood everywhere the first time I used it
I was at my current ex-boyfriend’s house and I felt like I was overflowing, so I tried to yank it out. I accidentally got blood all over his bathroom. He was so supportive when he watched me clean it up and barely even yelled at me for it!
Con: I accidentally drank my period blood once
After I removed my diva cup I left it sitting out because I thought I heard someone in my apartment, but it was just my neighbors having their nightly extremely loud sex. Coincidentally, I was making a cranberry vodka for myself when I felt my cup leak. Ok. I was drunk and there is no further explanation for why I did this. I drank my blood.
Pro: I discovered I like the taste of human blood
I’m not addicted, though. I am in control! It’s similar to how I only smoke when I drink.
Now that you know my story, please praise me accordingly. If you feel like your words aren’t enough, you can hit me on Venmo.

Hey white women, it’s not all about us
by Caroline Phinney
Nobody is saying being a girl isn't annoying. Tampons are pricy, guys are usually creepy and weird and it feels like every Friday we're peer-pressured into shaving our legs. But you know what? Nearly HALF the population is female, and particularly in America, it's not a damn bad lot white women have been handed —…
‘He said he was a Samurai’ and other wild-ass lies men have told us
Honestly, these are fucked up
by Katie Way
One time, I broke up with a guy and a month later he told me he had terminal cancer so I would get back together with him. It didn't work, but it did teach me a valuable lesson: men are not only untrustworthy, they are cocky enough to think women will believe anything they say.I…
