Mia Timpano has a chat with some Clams and Clam Fans about their period experiences. Get ready for tales of first-times, emotional intensity, soiled hotel sheets and spider-infested bark.
Judy Blume. Conspicuous laundry. Dads in the deep end. Period ceremonies.
Pain. Cramps. Blood letting. Non-stop periods.
Release. Relief. Rorschach tests. Self care.
Toilet paper tetris. Underwear origami. Spider-infested bark. Stealth pad-placement.
White school uniforms. Hotel sheets. Cup chaos. Bleeding all over Melbourne.
UPS AND DOWNS
Overreactions. Emotional intensity. Crying at dogs.
HIDE AND SEEK
Sex on your period. Stigma. Squeezing it out. Deal breakers.
What’s cool. What’s not cool. Don’t judge yourself.
