Period Sex? Safe? Sexy? Dirty? Yuck? I really wouldn’t have cared to discuss this on my blog but, I first though about this after a young married friend of mine told me in confidence that her husband wanted sex even while she’s on her period. Honestly, sex on my period? You better kill me first! But, that’s just me and as always, I had to research this topic to know if it was a rarity, abnormality (I really thought so) or a norm. I found out two things about period sex: It wasn’t strange to a lot of couples (even one night stands) and secondly, women are said to be hornier while on their period!
Let me get this out of the way- first of all, me and period is like water and oil. We don’t gel. That’s me at my worst: moody, in pains and on drugs. I never think sexy, horny and sex even on my writings on days like this and so, I was really stumped researching this. I found one Kat George’s writing on this really helpful because she seemed quite authoritative on this based on her experiences and she writes that: blood does not spray out of a woman’s vagina in a heavy stream when she has her period. Her vagina is not an open tap. Generally, women only lose around one fourth of a cup of blood while they are menstruating. It doesn’t spurt out like our vagina is a disembodied limb in a Tarantino film. And when you put a tampon, or a slightly larger, similarly shaped object up there, the flow of blood lessens and essentially, stays indoors.
The urban myth — which I’ve learned to be both prolific and dangerous — is that it’s “filthy” and “dirty,” but as someone who wont let a little blood get in her way, I’m here to tell you: it’s not. Blood does not “go everywhere.” It’s not like Vampire Bill and Lorena’s infamous romp in buckets of human blood. As I’ve already alluded, having period sex is synonymous with “plugging” the flow, and less blood comes out (if any, I find that it’s mostly contained to little bits of goop on the condom only) than your over active imagination seems to think“.
According to other online writers, a towel spread underneath, solves the problem of stains and all that after which a good shower washes you clean as always.
Well, many ladies like me wouldn’t try period sex for different reasons. While am a super ‘bitch’ about this, some women even more than some guys find it really dirty and a huge turn off and would call you a sexmaniac for even suggesting it. Different strokes, folks! No judgements. For those men who wouldn’t mind and complains that their ladies do, remember, our society teaches us that blood on a lady is “gross”. Many guys would mock as careless and dirty, any girl they point out her stains to.
For the girl who does feel horny and can’t understand why the man is squeamish about blood, bear with him. Blood makes even some of the toughest guys freak out. It might not have anything to do with being dirty or gross…its just how they see it. Either way, three/four/five/six/seven days of no sex never killed no one.
I don’t dish out advices here so please…do what works for you. As for me, don’t even think it…DON”T.
