A RuPaul's Drag Race contestant has claimed that she was BANNED from donning a dress which resembled a giant sanitary pad on the hit diva show.

Drag queen Manila Luzon is currently competing on the fourth season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, which is synonymous with breaking glass ceilings and overcoming certain stereotypes.

In the latest episode of the show, which aired last Fridaym Luzon and the cast served some killer lewks and the drag artist herself wore a Chanel-inspired gown for the 'Curves and Swerves' challenge.

Controversy arose when Manila went public with Ru's decision to ban her original menstruation-inspired dress, saying it was in "bad taste", despite previous looks on the show being far more controversial.

Manila took to her Instagram to post an image of the dress, captioning the image;

"Ru said my ORIGINAL Curves & Swerves Runway look was in “bad taste” and production told me to wear my back up. I was really looking forward to wearing this gown that I think celebrates a perfectly normal human experience!"

"Many of my fans are young women who may feel pressured by society to be embarrassed by periods. It’s empowering to teach young women about their bodies, encourage them to celebrate them AND to question people who tell them not to!" she added. LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK.

"My goal with this look was to normalise menstruation by looking great even if I was on my period!" she continued.

The look was curated by designer Dallas Coulter, and consisted of a sanitary pad corset and fake blood alongside a glamorous red skirt.

"Instead, I decided to wear the beautiful quilted dress you saw in the episode because it is not my show, it’s Ru’s. But because of Ru, I have my very own platform to speak for myself and show you all my interpretation!!

Fans of the show were NOT happy, to say the least.

Another Twitter user wrote; “Period drama! As an endometriosis sufferer thank you for trying to normalise periods."

Manila's post has caused major criticism of Ru Paul's methods, following public outcry last year when Ru expressed his disapproval of transitioning queens taking part in Drag Race.

He was accused of transphobia after saying actively transitioning women probably couldn't participate in the famous show;

RuPaul said, “Probably not. You can identify as a woman and say you're transitioning, but it changes once you start changing your body.”

“It takes on a different thing; it changes the whole concept of what we're doing,” the 57-year-old LGBTQ idol said, later apologising for his comments.

Neither Ru nor the production team have responded to the period dress debacle.


We were literally gagging while reading about this because it is so unbelievably ridiculous and pointless… not to mention disgusting.

Across the pond in Kansas, USA, a man, who has never experienced a period, thinks that glueing your vagina together is a good idea.

Why? So blood doesn't escape when you're on your period. 

This guy must think periods resemble a scene from The Walking Dead, because God forbid any blood leak. Gasp! Shock horror! Ugh…

According to Metro, chiropractor, Daniel Dopps, shared a post on Facebook explaining how this lipstick glue is a safer option if we want to control our periods…

A man has created a lipstick to glue vagina lips together so period blood can't escape anymore

Stating how "natural" it is, the Facebook post reads: "Mensez is a natural combination that is applied to the lips downunder during the period."

Another Facebook post about the lipstick tries to compare periods to hair in a shower drain.

"Humans like things to be in their place and when they are displaced we perceive it as gross, nasty and unhealthy. We all love our hair until it gets out of its place and in the shower drain.

It goes on… "Mensez ends period mind games, the blood stays secure inside where it should be." 

"You don't have to see it anymore and you certainly don't have to touch it anymore… Like a self-cleaning shower drain."

A self-cleaning shower drain. Great.

We think we'll stick to tampons, thanks (even if that does mean seeing blood… shocker).



Now, when Twilight was the hot topic back in 2008, it's safe to say that we saw a good few vampire-inspired couples about the place.

But this woman from Australia claims to be a real-life vampire, and sucks her boyfriend's blood…

For the past twenty years Georgia Condon has ventured away from the sunlight and into the darkness as she has a blood disorder called thalassemia, and due to her anemia and low iron levels, Georgia says she needs blood to get by on a weekly basis.

The make-up artist claims that she first got a taste for blood at the age of 12, and now, 27 years later, says it's as enjoyable as sex.

Speaking to the Mail Online, the 39-year-old said: "I would put them on par. It is mainly arousal and joy. There is a reason that most vampire shows combine the two. It is a form of high that can't be exactly described.

"It is not daily as that would be far too much a burden on his body, leading to way too many wounds. I try on a weekly basis but it is hard on him and we don't have a set time such as 'dinner time' that would be strange. "

Emmm.. yep.

She added: "He sacrifices to give me what I want from time to time. He believes in monogamy so it's a form of intimacy."


Hello folks and welcome back to another wonderful week and with that another edition to The Line-Up. This week Niamh Geaney has taken a look across Ireland and picked 5 of the best events for you guys to check out, from comedy with The Gleesons, tip-tapping music to a rather unusual exhibition- not for the faint hearted!



Warning: This is pretty gross.

Actor, Jim Parrack, has admitted that he drinks human blood on occasion.

Jim, who ironically stars in True Blood, was speaking to Vulture magazine when he revealed his Friday treat: “I like the real deal. I guess the best way to put it is sometimes I just like the way it tastes … it’s more like an impulse.”

Jim first spoke about his dark secret back when he was starring in Of Mice and Men on Broadway, but has only gone into detail now.

So, who’s blood does he actually drink then? Well, he is very fussy about that… “I’m absolutely particular. It’s not like it’s just anybody’s! That particular night, it was my girl. Yeah.”

Leven Rambin is that lucky girl in question, she and Jim have just recently announced their engagement.

Jim, who plays Hoyt on True Blood, said that ingesting human blood does something emotional to him: If you drink it, it does something to you emotionally. It’s hard to describe. It’s kind of like you’re in the moment, and the impulse comes, and… I like it.”

We think we’ll just stick with our Galaxy Caramel, thanks…
