Bryony Farmer, 25, a UK-based content creator of the popular YouTube channel "Precious Stars Vlog," makes videos to promote her online retail business selling reusable menstrual products. Farmer describes being contacted by a "transgender woman" who was "trying to find a way to simulate her period."
The video begins with a written message for viewers explaining that, "Menstruation is something natural that is constantly associated with being a 'woman,' therefore it is completely normal for all women to want to experience this sensation and I hope you all can appreciate that."
"As far as I am aware, women who are transgender can’t actually experience periods naturally," Farmer said to her 136,000 subscribers. "I offered to help her and I thought while I was at it I might as well just make a video out of it and put it up here because maybe it would help some of you guys too."
The recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of water, a "tiny bit" of cornstarch to turn the water opaque, a capful of red food coloring, and one to two drops of black food coloring, which she says will make it "nice and dark."
Farmer mixes the concoction, then retrieves a cup of her own menstrual blood from the "fifth day of [her] cycle" to compare next to the fake DIY menstrual blood.
She then demonstrates how the fake menstrual blood looks when dribbled onto a period pad. "I would always bleed in the middle here," she says, adding spoonfuls of the dark liquid into the center of the pad laid out on the kitchen counter.
"So you can sort of determine where you want to bleed and also how much liquid you make will determine how heavy a period you have if you’re going to simulate it," she says.
Farmer then demonstrates using a menstrual cup, which she says that males who have undergone a penile skin inversion vaginoplasty can insert into their bodies.
She then suggests adding egg whites to "mimic cervical mucus" and thicken the consistency of the concoction to make it look "even more realistic."
Farmer explains to biological males watching the video that they can reenact the farcical performance every month: "If you are trying to structure how your period would work, my suggestion would be to get a period app and get it to ping you when you’re nearing a period." A calendar marked every 28 days would also work, she says. "People bleed usually between 3 to 7 days, so you can decide," she adds.
The video from 2015 has 1.4 million views. The ability for users to comment was removed by Farmer, who said, "I decided to turn off comments as there were some people being very immature and disrespectful towards other peoples [sic] feelings."
