Bedsider's Video Of A Dude Explaining How The Pill Works Is Amazing And Just Plain Adorable
It's not exactly clear what chopping veggies has to do with sex, but this video of a random dude cooking while debriefing us on how birth control works is definitely worth watching. The video, via Upworthy, shows a dude preparing a few different meals while giving a simple breakdown of how the Pill affects women's bodies, why we need to take it every day at the same time, and what this all means for the men we're with. The best part might just be his advice on what men can do to help their sexual partners who are on the Pill – why is it we don't see more of this?
The video is part of a series from Bedsider, an online birth control support network for women 18-29 operated by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unwanted Pregnancy. The series, "Guy's Guide," features a bunch of kooky yet informative videos on reproductive health with topics like the ring ("It's sort of like one of those jelly bracelets from the 80s.") and emergency contraception ("It's a hell of a lot better than nothing. Like a lot better.").
While it's a bit silly that some men feel they'd rather have another dude explain birth control to them, we're willing to embrace whatever works. Besides, it's about time men take on some of the work involved in preventing all those babies. Now, "Where, and how, can I get me some of this 'sex'?"
