Thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. For every pair purchased you fund 7 pads to a girl in need.
OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY
AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:
For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.
AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:
After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.
THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

Majid Jordan - “A Place Like This”
If the name sounds unfamiliar, rest assured that you’ve probably heard neo-R&B duo Majid Jordan before, featured on Drake’s smash “Hold On We’re Going Home,” for which they also shared production credits.
This is the first thing they’ve released since that mega-collaboration, and it’s the best indication of what we can expect from their upcoming EP, also titled A Place Like This, out July 22nd on OvO Records.
Under the sumptuous, stacked synths and wistful crooning lies a hint of danger. True to OvO sound, it’s a super chill track, probably more appropriate for the 3am drive home from the club than at the club itself, but there’s definitely a seductive quality here, and it’s that element that helps it rise above the sea of synth-hop out there.
I’m excited to see where Majid Jordan goes from here; I wouldn’t be surprised if their future releases shared this one’s hazy, brooding sensuality. The video expands on this mood, turning a familiar dance-floor seduction on its head, using the expectations of the genre to undermine it — an ability Drake, and OvO in general, have built careers on, and a tradition Majid Jordan seems primed to follow.
