Menstruation is a perfectly normal part of life. So is sex. Having sex while a woman is on her period is a hotly contested topic online. Most people feel that it is disgusting while others believe it’s perfectly normal, and by the way, grow up, loser.
Everyone’s got an opinion, so let’s dive a bit deeper into how people really feel about Aunt Flo sex!
10. It’s A Normal Part Of Life
First and foremost, having sex during a period is perfectly normal. Many women find it infuriating and believe speaking out against it only reinforces the stereotype that periods are vile and disgusting with all of the blood. But is there really that much blood? Find out for sure on #9.
9. The Amount Of Blood
Is period blood going to get everywhere? Not likely. The average amount of blood released during menstruation is around 30 to 40ml, but that’s over the course of a few days. Imagine a ten-minute sexual encounter; there’s really not that much blood that is going to get anywhere at all.
8. Men Are A Lot More Disgusting
Since it is only blood, let’s imagine a guy finishing all over the place when he is done with sex. On the sheets, inside of his partner, or all over his partner, semen is more disgusting than blood when you really get down to it. Let’s go over the potential benefits in #7.
7. The Benefits Of Sex During A Period
As everyone knows, periods aren’t the most comfortable instances a body can experience. Having sex has been known to alleviate a lot of pain, especially during an orgasm. So the next time your wife or girlfriend wants to do the deed on her period, do her a favor for cramp’s sake.
6. Sex Affects The Length Of Her Period
Having period sex not only relieves pain, but it can also alleviate the amount of time the period lasts. The orgasm can cause the lining and blood to release a little quicker meaning the period could be over a few days sooner than normal. Discover the benefits for men next in #5.
5. The Libido And The Period
It has been well-established that women are much hornier when they are on their period, even though it may not feel like it. And there’s no better time to have sex than when your girl is gearing for sex. Look past the blood for one second and enjoy the increased horniness.
4. Logic Tells Us To Do It
We all have bloody noses or scrapes that can leak profusely for a long time. Blood is a natural and necessary part of our anatomy. Why would we be ok with one and not the other? As one person puts it, “If someone’s like, ‘Blood, in general, is fine, but when it comes from a vagina it’s disgusting,’ that’s ridiculous.” Yet some people go a little overboard like the couple in #3.
3. Period Art
This next guy dated an artist who decided to let her creativity get the best of her. “We took our clothes off, and she put my fingers, and her fingers, inside her vagina…and then we started finger painting on each other. We drew hearts and swirls and wrote each other’s names. It was gorgeous.”
2. Sometimes It’s Nicer To Wait
Many people take the conservative approach to periods. They don’t mind the bodily function, but would rather wait until it passes. She says, “I’ve had sex with previous partners while I had my period, but I never enjoyed it. I was never fully relaxed.” The next man takes the mature approach.
1. Go For It
Matt and Margot decide to just go for it. He sees no reason why they should interrupt their sex life since it is perfectly safe to have sex while on her period. “She has to deal with it, so there’s no reason why I should run away and hide.” Margot loves it as she proclaims, “I’m more sensitive, sexually. It’s fun. It feels more playful.”
Once you try it, you probably won’t even notice much of a difference. We are all adults and should be able to deal with the strange events nature puts us through. Having period sex can cause more benefits than harm so what’s the harm in trying? You can always just do it in the shower and not worry about a thing. Shower sex can be stimulating all on its own.
There will always be a stigma associated with men not wanted to try period sex but that might just be a good indication he isn’t old enough to deal with it.
