Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren''. Peggy asks Bud to do this for her. He's horrified, naturally.
* Implied in ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', when Jerry asks George "Is there any Tampax in your house?". When George reluctantly replies "Yes", Jerry declares, "You've got yourself a girlfriend".
* In Season 2 of ''Series/TheRealWorld'', one of the male housemates cringes when one of the women mentions not feeling well because of her period. She tells him to get over it as odds are he'll have to do this for his girlfriend or wife someday and proceeds to give him a lecture on the different types of products.

* On ''{{Series/ER}}'', after Rachel Greene starts her period. Father's girlfriend Elizabeth is reluctant to give her tampons, given how young she is, and sends her grandfather out to get pads. Apparently having never done this before, he's buys every type that he can find.

Being Hank, he creates an organized detailed binder with everything a man needs to know about shopping for products in the "feminine aisle". When Connie's parents get home, he gives it to Kahn Sr. to help him deal with his daughter's new monthly cycle.

[[AC:Other]]
* As many men can tell you, this is quite common in RealLife.
** Interestingly, it actually applies to girls as well, because a) there's usually a year or so in the beginning where other people knowing that you have a bodily function that literally half the rest of the planet also has is ''really'' embarrassing which makes buying your own pads/tampons ''torture'' until you get over yourself and realize that no one cares, and b) the many different products/brands/sizes etc. are confusing even if you're a girl, until you've become familiar enough with the whole thing that you just find one or a few products you feel comfortable with and stick with them forever.

* In the WebOriginal setting ''{{Paradise}}'', humans are randomly, permanently Changed into {{Funny Animal}}s (with some experiencing a [[GenderBender gender-change]] at the same time), though this Change is InvisibleToNormals who will continue to see the person as his or her old human self (and gender). Many newly male-to-female gender-Changed find themselves effectively doing {{Tampon Run}}s for ''themselves'' (before the [[TheUnmasquedWorld masquerade breaks down]], at least): while still apparently male, they must shop for feminine accessories and hygiene products.
