TikTok’s ‘Roe v. Bros’ reveals NYC men know nothing about women

NYC bros just aren’t in the know — period!

Armed with a microphone, questions about the female reproductive system and a handful of tampons, sketch comedy actress Tiffany Springle and a small production crew took to Union Square Park in late October. They were on their inaugural mission to find out how much the men of New York understood about the inner workings of women’s bodies.

In a shock to no one, the guys knew next to nothing.

Springle posed questions such as “How much blood do women lose during their period?” and “Can pregnant women go swimming?” and received hilarious wrong answers. The encounters became the five part video series, “Roe v. Bros,” which has been a viral hit, with more than 12.3 million views on TikTok.

“Roe v. Wade” host Tiffany Springle stumped male contestants with questions about the female reproductive system.

Tiffany Springle and the creators of the show wanted to produce a series that highlighted the lack of knowledge most men have about the female anatomy, even though men are making important decisions on women's rights and health.

“We’re in such a heated [political] time right now, and female reproduction is a really hot button issue,” Springle, 34, from Brooklyn, told The Post.

“I think humor is a great way to ease some of the pressure that surrounds the topic,” she added. “And it helps us have an open dialogue with laughter rather than divisiveness.”

Clad in an eye-catching violet suit, Spring is mistress of ceremonies on the trending game show — co-created by directors Brian Neaman, Billy Custer and Ivan Blotta. She quizzes willing contestants on the female anatomy, promising participants $1 for every question that they answer correctly.

Springle, a sketch comedy actress, told The Post that the men she interviewed on the game show were honest about their lack of knowledge about the female reproductive system.

She doesn’t lose much money.

Queries such as, “How long after giving birth can women have sex again?,” garnered answers like “One week…but it’d probably hurt because you just had a baby come out that b- – -h.” (It is recommended that women wait between 4 to 6 weeks before resuming intercourse after childbirth, per the Mayo Clinic).

Other questions such as “Does the G-spot move?,” and “Why are there different size tampons?,” too, comically stump the hapless chaps, and highlight the severe lack of education surrounding women’s health.

“We wanted to spotlight the hypocrisy in the fact that ‘bros’ don’t know much about the female reproductive system, yet, these men make up half of the [voting] population and the vast majority of the political system, which is making decisions on the bodily autonomy of women,” said Custer, who, along with Neaman and Blotta, wrote, filmed, edited and posted the series in 10 days. “We didn’t like it when Roe v. Wade got overturned.”

But Neaman notes that their cheeky clips aren’t designed to berate or embarrass dudes. Instead, the show is meant to inspire positive online and real-life discussion.

“The goal is not to shame people or have people walk away feeling bad,” he told The Post. “We just wanted to have conversations about women’s health and the people making decisions about it.”

And it seems the creative team achieved their goal.

On TikTok, commenters authored sharp remarks about the massive gaps in men’s knowledge, arguing, “To be fair, no one ever teaches us some of this, and there’s generally no reason for us to know a lot of this.”

As clips of Tiffany Springle's man-on-the-street interviews grew in popularity, social media audiences have weighed in.

Another wrote, “This is why the boys should also be in the same room when girls have the period talk in school.”

But most folks just got a kick out of how much the bros just don’t know.

“Omg!! Best thing I’ve seen today! Period,” one viewer cheered, punctuating the comment with the laugh emoji.

“I feel significantly better about how much I know now,” said another male commentator after watching the series. “And I also know that it’s not my place to decide on women’s healthcare.”
