Hello everyone! I'm doing a project for my Sexual Development class about cultural symbolism and mentalities associated with entering Menarche (the first menstrual period).

I'd like to talk about alternative menstrual products and how they can be empowering. Would anyone be willing to share why they like alternative menstrual products, and how they've changed, or fostered, your feelings (positive or negative) on menstruation? You can also talk about your feelings on traditional menstrual products if you'd like. =o)

Also, I would LOVE to be able to have some pictures of artwork done with menstrual blood to present in my PowerPoint. Does anyone have any good digital photos they'd like to donate to my project, or point anyone you know that does blood art to this post? If you'd like to do that, you can just post the picture as a reply to this entry, with your name and the title of the piece. Or, you can email me at xemcats at cox dot net with everything.

Thank you so much everyone!!

I recently put up a post in a livejournal community and someone told me they would like to see a LunaPads(tm) type design where the ricrac holds the liners on top of the pad rather than in it. So, I added it! It is no extra charge. Just specify when you order which you would like. Pictures of these will be up soon.
