Disney’s “The Story of Menstruation” Video

red 150

I’m a sucker for old sexual education videos so of course I would love this one from the 40s created by Disney and Kotex to explain menstruation to young girls. The really great – meaning sexist, dated but still hilarious – theories about menstruation start around 4:58. I  like how it’s now okay to shower as long as the water isn’t too hot or too cold.

I found this video through a post on Thought Catalog where Ted Pillow talks about why the video makes him feel weird while trying not to be what he calls “a stereotypical male regarding menstruation.” I think he does a good job so check it out too!
