The sad reality is, not everyone paid attention in biology and sex ed class. So some people are ignorant about even some basic biological things like how tampons work (and they might be too shy or embarrassed to ask anyone to explain everything to them properly now). Not to worry!
An educational TikTok video challenge is going viral where women are showing their partners how tampons work. Their reactions? Full of astonishment and shrieks. Priceless. You can see how shocked they are when they finally realize this is something that women have to do for a week every month. Keep in mind that the videos aren’t 100 percent accurate, but they’re dramatic and educational.
Check out some of the best challenge videos below and let us know what you think of them in the comment section. If you want to, share your own experience when you learned how tampons worked and let us know if there’s anything related to human biology that you’d want to know more about but never got the chance to ask women or men about.

The video by the Demery Family got over 31.6 million views and is the most widely known entry into the challenge. You can watch the full clip right here

One of the most viral tampon demonstration videos belongs to the Demery Family who have a TikTok account with over 320.8k followers. Their video got a whopping 7.8 million likes, was reshared nearly 274k times, and was viewed more than 31.6 million times.
The fact that the video got so much attention proves that there’s more guys out there who didn’t know how tampons work in the first place.
And this just goes to show that TikTok really can be an educational force to be reckoned with (even though it might choose not to most of the time) if used right.
Other TikTok users pitched in with their own videos and, like you could have expected, a lot of men were stunned to see how tampons absorb menstrual blood. The challenge also made a lot of guys feel more empathy toward their partners because they saw how much the tampon expands inside of them. The more you know.
While we’re pretty sure a lot of these reactions are genuine, others seem to be at least partly staged. Anything to make the topic more approachable and educational though, right?
Most men are completely shocked by the ‘revelation.’ Another TikTok user shared a video of how her husband reacted to seeing how tampons work

This husband’s face says it all, but it proves that sex ed classes need to be far more educational than they are now
