Tampons, sanitary towels and the revolutionary *cough* Diva Cup (AKA Moon Cup in the UK) are just some of the period-related paraphernalia that women have to deal with on a monthly basis.

But give these rather dull-looking sanitary items to gay men and 'Hey, Presto!' you've got five minutes of internet gold.

Our personal favourite (in reference to a sanitary towel): "I would stick this on my vagina because it's adhesive, maybe put down a little talcum powder, you know."

Ouch.
