Is it worthwhile for male partners to tag along here to gain understanding or at least show support? Depends. In a recent Modern Family, young Manny tells how he once had to watch a film on feminine hygiene that he can never ever unwatch. Well, there's one song here that I can't unhear, even though I covered my ears and sang "Stouthearted Men" (it's about, um, urological distress). Now I can never again think of a bladder as a comical prop in commedia dell'arte. Yet I have to admit that any song with the great line "I can't do the hustle, because I can't control my muscle" can't be all bad, even if it also cracks: "I leak, leak, leak like a senator in Congress."
