Sex during your period

Sex during your period

LilyLust LilyLust
I use to have some friends that said they preferred sex during their periods. I always thought it was gross. But lately, I don't know why, but I have been finding my self aroused during my time. Which is new to me. But it got me thinking about what my old friends told me. So I was wondering if anyone else does, if there's any health issues, does it help with cramping? Just wanted to get some info. I don't even know if it's sanitary, but figured you all would know.

I always get ridiculously horny during mine. My husband won't have sex during then. At all - even anal. He says he's already got his "red wings".

It can be really, really messy.

I am constantly in the mood the week before my period comes. And then once I'm on my period, it scales back a lot. It can be really messy during the first couple days, when flow is heaviest. I've had sex during the tail end of my period before, and it was alright. There's nothing unsanitary about it, especially if you and your partner are already fluid bonded (if you're not, there might be some complications that I'm not aware of). Just put down a towel or something in case there's a mess and then wash it afterward. Most exercises help with cramping because they increase blood flow, and sex is no exception.

orgasms are the best cure for cramps!

I can't do the mess of sex while on period, it can be avoided. The best is to use some sea sponge - it mimics the spongy tissue of the vagina, and it absorbs the blood. When I was recently in Germany, there was actually a product at the sex shops called sex sponge!

But I prefer to just have sex without vaginal penetration for those days - anal is good, as is oral, as are certain toys.

My boyfriend doesn't mind having sex with me during my period at all. It does help with cramps, and lately, I've been noticing that sex/masturbation during my period actually will shorten it from a week to 4-5 days. We just put a towel down and go to town, and we haven't had to wash the sheets yet! I've known a few people who like to have sex on their period in the shower, but I haven't tried it yet.

I definitely enjoy sex on my period, and it was actually me who needed convincing. He plain said he didn't care, and now I view it as simply a small obstacle to overcome. He says now that it can be pretty nice, since there is "extra lubrication".

He was raised solely by his mother though, and also helped raise two of his siblings later, so he was conditioned to "unsanitary" things and it takes quite a bit to gross him out.

Sex is okay during your period as long as you maybe put down a towel. I dont care for it much just because it makes me self conscious, but I do get horny and it has happened on occasion.

PS Redwings = sex during period
Red Badge Of Courage = oral, which is, in my opinion...just no.

I have to say, I remember reading Endless Love back when I was really young & thought that part (RBOC) was intensely erotic.

Orgasm while on my period is an incredible relief for cramps. Worth it for that alone! But we both find that we have a few days of our periods where we are super horny. Usually steer clear of penetration sex at that time just because we don't feel like dealing with clean up. Hands or a strong vibe through a thin pad works great. That or shower sex. Super easy clean up.

Dreamylove: i've also found that if i masturbate early on in my period it shortens it from usual 7 days to about 4.

so in my opinion, mess aside, all things point to go.

My Fiancé always jokes that I am horniest when I am on my period, and insists my hormones are just way out of line. lol. But yeah, he doesn't mind the blood at all, but usually prefers using a condom, especially if it's a heavy flow. Being on the pill, I usually get pretty light periods, so that's not usually an issue.

Funny that you all say sex helps with cramps. Mine sometimes feel worse afterwards, but maybe that's because I am usually just so bloated??

I am definitely going to try the masturbation technique. Shorter = YAY!

I never experience a heavy period so we just throw down a towel if we're worried - sometimes not even that.

I, too, get really horny the week before.

I think when my flow chills out a bit I might try. It doesn't sound like I have anything to worry about. Thanks everyone for the input.

Ciao. Ciao.
We definitely have sex while my fiancee is on her period no problem for either of us. She says it doesn't help her feel better at all, but she is often more aroused during her period and I really don't have a problem with the blood, just need to put a towel down on the bed and wash up afterwards.

We have sex during my period, but because I'm on the pill, all but the first day is pretty light. He has no problem with it, but I always make him turn off the lights if we get busy during my period, because I don't want to see the blood. Seeing blood before, I'm fine; seeing blood afterwards when we're cleaning up, I'm fine and we usually have a good laugh. But I don't want to see it during, because then I get horribly embarrassed.

Like Lithaewyn said, he likes the extra lubrication, but he also has mentioned that I'm much tighter during my period. Extra bonus, I guess!

If you're concerned about heavy flow there's always outercourse with a tampon.

Maybe it's just me, but my period usually stops when I get aroused, and won't come back for an hour or so after intercourse... unless I have a major orgasm. Then I bleed like crazy afterwards, but it makes the duration of my period a lot shorter.

You can have sex with menstrual cups inserted, such as Instead. They prevent blood from getting on you, but you might be able to feel the cup. I always use these instead of tampons. You can purchase these at Walmart.

I get soo incredibly horny during my period and the week before. It definitely helps with cramps. I would say that half of my partners have avoided sex during this time, but the other half (thank God for them) haven't had any issue. Just lay down a towel and wash it after.

I get soo incredibly ...
It's a bummer only the disposable cups can stay in during sex. The non-disposable ones are worn much lower in the vagina.

My boyfriend is fine with having sex during me period. I have a VERY light flow... most of the time it's not even actual flow, just that brown gunky stuff. I'm the one that needs to get over my queasiness.

Since I have an IUD I rarely have periods, I get the cramps and acne flares up but I get just brown gunk for one day or two. It is so light that I don't even consider it a period. My partner has no problem having sex while I'm in my period. He would only wear a condom if I felt uncomfortable with it but I don't. I am more aroused right before or at the begginning of my period. It's terrible how strong it gets. I actually dream very erotic things even if I am sexually satisfied.

I hear people all the time saying orgasms help their cramps. In my case, they always made them so much worse. It is frustrating because I do get incredibly horny around that time and I often think "hey, just this once won't be so bad", and then I'm doubled over a few minutes after satisfaction

Well I've never had sex at the beginning of my period but I do at the last few days. Personally, it gives me more cramps if I have sex while I already have cramps, but if you don't have cramps then sex is normally a lot better!

I am more horny then usual just before and during my period. I have a throe or will use a towel during my period. B/f doesn't seem to mind, if he is "bloody" after sex, he does a quick wipe with a wash cloth. And yes, sex does help me relieve cramps.

About cramps though, my cervix is so sensitive that sex during cramps is like hell inside my pussy. I love rough hard sex so if my cervix is sensitive we go smoother and I will usually get cramps after and start bleeding sometimes. It depends how rough we go. It seems like the pleasure supercedes the pain but once the love making is over I clutch my abdomen in pain.

I told him he has to get his recertification, lol - he's not going for it.
But, he's willing to go for anal instead, which is an improvement.

I've used Instead for years and swear by them. The guy may be able to feel the cup if he has a large cock, but rarely does anyone say anything about it. The best thing to do is to got the bathroom right before sex, as it will empty out the cup of most of the blood that's already in it. They usually don't leak.

My partner and I have sex while I'm on my period often. There isn't anything bad about it. Sometimes its a bit messy. Generally we wait until the last few days when the flow is lighter. We just throw a towel down and have tissues ready to wipe up. The only thing he complains about is the smell of blood, since he is particularly sensitive towards that (I cut my finger open once and needed stitches and he was no help at all!). He won't go down on me unless I have my DivaCup in. I've never experienced cramps, pain, etc. afterwards.

I wish my partner and I could have sex in the shower. It would make things so much easier. Unfortunately standing up sex doesn't work so well with height difference, weight, and the fact that he's curved in such a way that makes it really uncomfortable for both of us.

Maybe we can try it in the bath...

I've never really had successful shower or bath sex. Maybe if we had a jacuzzi, heh. Otherwise, bathtubs just are too small and the shower puts a lot of strain on his knees which aren't in the best shape anyway - because he has to sort of bend to deal with the height differences.
