Surprised by Response

Just the other day, I was visiting with a friend that I hadn't seen in quite a while.  We were sitting around chatting and she asked if I had anything else new and interesting going on.  I thought about it for  a second and decided to mention menstrual cups to her.  It wasn't a hard decision, she is very environmentally conscious, supports local farmers, composts and has a small vegetable garden, buys organic where she can and generally cares about what she puts on and in her body.  We have never had any problems discussing things of a personal nature and I figured she'd be interested so I let her know. 

As soon as the words menstrual cup came out of my mouth, a look of unease spread across her face.  It was like she thought I was going to spread my legs, pop one out, and give her a demo.  I gave her the name of this site and told her she should check it out and left it at that.  I was just surprised at the reaction since I've gotten more positive responses from people I thought would react more negatively.

Has this happened to any of you?
