Sex is Sexy. Period.

Why does sex during your period seem so taboo? Is it because it gets messy? Is it because you are so bloated you feel disgusting and want nothing more than to avoid being seen naked? Or, it could be because that good old book (Leviticus to be specific) tells us that “if a man lays with a woman while she is menstruating, he will be unclean for 7 days”?

Don’t be influenced by what other people think or what religion has tried to instill. People tend to have very strong opinions regarding the matter...but honestly, who cares? And why would you? You do you. Give it a try. You just might like it. If you already have given it a try and you enjoy period sex, go for it! According to data collected by Simpatic.us from over 4,000 users, both men and women say they are interested in having period sex – 38 percent of men and 31 percent of women. Some folks enjoy it so much, it is a labeled fetish. People really crave sex during the crimson wave. You don’t have to limit yourself to just having shower sex (though it is super hot and the least messy experience) when you are on your period either. Sure, you might want to lay down a dark towel and save the sheets, but there are all kinds of ways to enjoy sex during that time of the month. While being on top is always a favorite position of mine, being horizontal decreases the chances of ruining your sheets, so lay down and enjoy the traditional missionary style. Or, try doggy style. I know this position can often be painful, but during your period is a great time to try it, because your cervix is shifted to a higher position during this time and that leaves less of a chance of your partner bumping into it and causing pain for you. While enjoying the thrills of period sex, remember, having your vagina lifted off the bed lessens your potential for staining or ruining your precious Egyptian cotton high thread count sheets, so get creative.

Are we supposed to ignore the fact that women have increased libido while on their periods? It’s true. Women have higher sex drives when they are on their periods. Hormones are all over the place and hormones have a definite impact on your sex drive. According to womenshealthmag.com, “since the level of progesterone—the hormone that some experts blame for putting a damper on libido—is at its lowest during your period, you might feel frisky on your period.”

And finally, do you realize sex during menstruation can actually be quite beneficial? Sex or masturbation during menstruation can lessen the severity of cramps, shorten the length of your period, decrease headaches, and some women even feel an increase in their self esteem by having period sex and proving that it is actually not disgusting nor should it be shameful. In fact, orgasms cause the uterus to relax while climaxing increases blood flow and also releases endorphins. The stronger the orgasm, the better pain relief you will experience. So, get on it. Literally! Keep in mind that you still want to play it safe, you can still get STI’s and you are still able to conceive, so use proper protection.
