Hey there! Are you a prepubescent girl wondering about the strange and confusing changes you’re going through? Do you need the most useless, incomplete, and patronizing advice possible? Well, look no further: the 1950’s is there for you. For example, did you know you get chills and catch cold if you go swimming the first couple of days of your period?

Other highlights: completely pointless drawing of the left hip as part of the lesson, an ‘ukulele, the assertion that it’s more important than ever to look your best on your period,* Giant Death Pads and The Contraption They Hook Up To, and the creepiest single line ever delivered by a 50's educational film dad. Dude, that is a high bar.

Also, I’m assuming they’re all human, but every single person in this film acts strangely enough that they sail into Uncanny Valley.

I want to say, it's not actually as terrible as it could be for one of these shorts. At least you get the basics.

And yes, I found this because the Rifftrax dudes took on this short, which was howlingly funny even though they did skip the actual sex ed lesson. Buncha prudes.


*That’s not even anathema to my own thinking. That’s just inexplicable.
