About a month or so ago, a woman I met at a new moon circle (a meditation circle) approached me and we started talking about menstrual cups (my favorite topic!), the fertility awareness method, and periods in general. She told me that she’d love to use a menstrual cup but probably wouldn’t be able to because she has vulvodynia.

What made you want to switch to a menstrual cup? Was it the convenience (it was for me), or was it the fact that you’d be saving so much money? Maybe it was the health benefits or the eco-friendly factor that pushed you to make the switch.

I live for moments like this, where my political agenda intersects with my other passions: queers & gender theory. You see, I am somewhat of a menstrual sex connoisseur.
