    For realz, my 11YO mournfully said to me the other day, “I’m never getting my period.” Am now contemplating where we can get a vagician and uterus pinata.

    Best. Ad. Ever.

    Loved it!  As someone praying for menopause, I just gotta ask, why would anyone want the damn thing??!

    I saw this yesterday, and it was hilarious!

    This weekend I’ll be reading Loretta Chase’s new book, “Vixen in Velvet”, since we got three copies a week ahead of time at work. ^_^

    they had a summer camp ad last year that was equally awesome.  Their marketing is genius!

    ROFL. We certainly didn’t have anything like that when I started my periods. Personally I can only say that I’m glad my days with the red Niagara Falls are over. Perhaps I should throw a belated “‘Bye, flo” party? That would certainly be something to celebrate!

    Second time through I laughed so hard the dogs left the office. The tampon earrings had me screaming!

    Many moons ago, my mother and aunt announced “she’s a woman now” at a family gathering after I had started my first period the previous day. Damn, my family didn’t have a tradition of a vagina cake and gifts.

    Hysterical! I remember their great summer camp ad from last year, but I think this tops it. I’m hoping some of my friends with girls decide to go the Moon Party route – it looks like a blast! All I got was a copy of Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret by Judy Bloom.

    sooooooo funny!!!! I had to watch it again – didn’t catch the tampon earrings the first time. LOL!

    And GHN, YES! Party on:) personally, I can’t WAIT until I don’t have them anymore, and plan on celebrating when I hit that point.

    Same people who did the summer camp video, right? This ad agency should receive many, many awards for sheer wonderfulness about glittery special days that look like Florida!

    I’m crying tears laughing! 

    I want to be friends with that Mum.  Anyone who is that evilicious on such short notice is someone I want to know.  Love the games – Bobbing for Ovaries!

    I had to watch this 3 times so I could catch those earrings – it does not get old.

    I would hire that ad’ agency!

    I’m with lisa J & Tikaanidog, just waiting for this to be over.  I wish God had designed it so it would only start when you decided you wanted kids & could be turned off when you didn’t. No idea how that would work, but would’ve been SOOOO much better!

    I too missed the tampon earrings.

    DonnaMarie says:

    Don’t be so anxious for the other end! I walk around everyday muttering ” I miss my estrogen ” because I can not keep a thought in my head. Others have assured me that it levels out, but I’m not sure I can stand being this dumb for much longer.

    And my favorite was when my goddaughter hit 13 and the bff called me and said “If she doesn’t get her period soon, I’m going to have to kill her.”

    Oh good lord, that’s FANTASTIC!!!!

    Definitely second or third everyone who said that ad agency needs all the awards – that was great.

    And DonnaMarie, I’ll try to keep that in mind, but I’m also with lisa J, Tikaanidog and Kelly S- so ready to be done.

    Elinor Aspen says:

    Kelly S., you should read Connie Willis’ short story “Even the Queen”. It’s about a future in which medical science has allowed women to turn off their periods. A group of radical feminists called “The Cyclists” see this as unnatural and have created a culture of celebration around menstruation that is nearly as silly and over-the-top as the “first moon party” in the ad.

    Kerry, now I’m debating the relative merits of Private Lady versus Teenage Softies brand products (why do I remember these things?).

    Kerry says:

    Elinor – Bwahahaha! Glad I’m not the only one who remembers these things ;)

    I want to know if the uterus-shaped pinata is filled with little baby dolls. Or maybe plastic eggs that some have babies in them and some don’t.

    Also, great First Moon gifts:

    I won’t be surprised if the tampon earrings show up on Etsy soon.
