We'll give them an A for effort... but that's about it.

In a new video created by V.Point News and charity organization Plan U.K., six guys attempt to answer questions about different menstrual products and how each is used. From confused stares to worried looks, most of the dudes were underprepared for the period pop-quiz.

The dudes went through a whole spectrum of emotions on their crash course, including:

Confusion:

Fear:

Frustration:

Shock:

And, of course, awe:

“It looks like something the doctor checks your ears with," one man said about a tampon. Another guy was having some trouble figuring out how women use a tampon: “This is some rocket science."

When the host asked one man why he thinks people tend to not talk about menstruation, he responded: “The stigma around talking about menstruation is the bigger issue than [talking about] the tampon. No periods, no babies -- no babies no future. So how important is it to understand about menstruation? It’s very important." Preach.
