Poll: How were you made aware of menstrual cups?

There's been a lot of talk in this forum about the lack of widespread advertising in the cup industry, and about how to spread to the word and share the joy and all that. Well, this has got me wondering about the statistics on how everyone here actually managed to find out about the cup for themselves. There is a poll in here already that touches on this, but I wanted to focus on this one question specifically and make it a bit more comprehensive. Hopefully this proves to be a valuable market research exercise for the cup companies, too.

If you're part of this forum because you're cup curious rather than a cup user, you're still more than welcome to vote in this poll.
