Walt Disney Menstruation Film

The Story of Menstruation

As told by Disney. This sweet animated film from the '40s or '50s gave me an important refresher course on all the stuff that happens when Aunt Flo comes to visit. These days, I bet young girls know their way around a stripper pole more than they do their own bodies, and it's interesting how, in more modest times, they didn't really mince words. The only weird part? It dispels the taboo that you shouldn't bathe during your moon time. Say what—who ever thought not bathing was a good idea?!

Yes, I remember the "no bathing" rule. It was thought to stop your bleeding which was considered unhealthy. Now there are birth control pills that will keep it at bay for up to 6 months. I always hated the other myth, "don't wash your hair while you are sick".

"13yo is the average age"? I wish! :( I thought it was a really cute video (although the baby at the beginning was rather creepy).

I thought it was a great video.Ok how many of us would have wrinkled up our noses and blushed when our mothers gave us the"talk" about menstruation?I admit that I would have been embarrassed as a young girl.The video makes it easier to explain and even though it is a vintage Disney video,I thought it explained it very well and to the point. By the way...who wants to dust when its their time of the month???Not me!!!

I absolutely loved this video They should still be showing this to kids now a days the information is totally spot on.. Maybe a wee outdated for crazy feminists but none the less good sense..

I was completely fascinated by this, I had to watch the whole thing, even though I am way past needing the explanation. Although, I would have been in trouble if they waited to show me until I was 11, because I was 9....blech!

Wow! I remember this as well, from many moons ago. (No pun intended!) Just wondering if anyone knows who the voice of the narrator belongs to? It sounds to me like it might be a young Lauren Becall?

Had to pass this on to my husband. He's a big fan of the history of animation, and Disney is a huge part of that. I think the narrator of this is one of the three fairies from Sleeping Beauty, for what it's worth. Very distinctive voice.

Wow, I found that actually not a bad film. It was educational. If not amusing! :)

I was seriously just telling a friend about this video 2 days ago. I had to watch it in 5th grade, which is incredibly sad because I wasn't in grade school that long ago (about 15 years) and I know they had more modern films then.
