I’m still unsure if this is a hoax or not, but a Kansas chiropractor called Daniel Dopps has come up with an absolutely horrific and dangerous way for women to deal with their periods.

The product is called Mensez and is a ‘feminine lipstick’ that seals together the labia in order to hold in blood. On the Mensez Facebook page, Dopps explains that the adhesive washes away and allows the blood to flow out when the woman urinates. Is he for real? Clearly he missed the class about female anatomy at school. Here’s what his Facebook post says (we would put the original post up, but it appears to be unavailable right now – probably due to the backlash of criticism):
Have you ever woke up with your lips stuck together? It didn’t hurt and it was kinda fun. All you had to do was to wet your lips from the inside with saliva and they became unstuck. This is the principle behind Mensez.
Mensez is a natural combination of amino acids and oil in a lipstick applicator that is applied to the lips downunder during the period. It causes them to stick together, strong enough to prevent leakage, that is until the user urinates. The urine instantly unsticks the labia and allows everything to wash out into the toilet.
In another post, he decided the best way to sell a women’s product is by insulting the female population:
Yes, I am a man and you as a woman, should have come up with a better solution than diapers and plugs, but you didn’t.
Reason being women are focused on and distracted by your period 25 per cent of the time, making them far less productive than they could be.
Not only does he need a lesson about how female genitals work, but he also needs a lesson in marketing strategy. Pro tip – it’s best not to insult your entire target audience.
He even goes on to say that periods, “play with [women’s] heads,” and that periods can be, “gross, crusty, smelly and incredibly awful.” What an ignorant moron. Perhaps, as one of the negative comments suggest, we should simply use his product to glue his mouth shout. That sounds like a far more productive use of the ‘labia lipstick’.
