  • Period Sex

    I’m curious to know how many people are regulars at period sex! Is there anyone who prefers to have sex while on their period? I personally do not mind having sex when I am on my period, or when my partner is menstruating, however I know that there are some people who are averted to the mess and/or smells of period sex. It for sure was taboo to talk about it period sex when I was growing up, and I’d love to know people’s contemporary opinions on the matter.

  • Ha! This one might be too touchy for some to comment on so I will!

    I am a guy, so I am coming at this from a totally different perspective, but I know that I've often had sex with women who were on their periods and it was totally fine for me.

    Sometimes my partners would be a bit embarrassed by the whole thing -- so to make things easier for them, I would offer to turn off the lights, put a nice large towel underneath us, and then whatever happens happens.

    Honestly, once you're having sex, it doesn't feel any different, and I know that a lot of women get incredibly horny on their periods, so it's a win-win for both of us!

    I know some are averse (men and especially women, which is weird I think?) entirely and would never even conceive of it, but to me, it's no biggie and just something natural.

      • If my wife has heavily flow, she will not want to have sex. But...we have had sex many time where she has started and I can tell right away. The lubrication is different, yet very pleasurable. I am not stopping for a bit of blood I can clean up easily.

        • If a guy doesn't want to have period sex I say grow up!! Aside from going down because sometimes they come up looking like a horror movie. Something someone said to me about period sex that sticks in my head is "It's just free lube."

          • Have not actually done this (still delaying actual intercourse, so there's that), but I definitely would try it, as I tend to get very horny right at the start of my period. I know masturbating and climaxing during my period feels amazing. I would not ask a guy to eat me in that condition though LOL.

              I just had to edit the above post to say "eat" instead of "meet." There was some sort of weird autocorrect fail LOL.

              • I used to love period sex. Some reason I was always the horniest during my period. Plus, my ex husband didn’t seem to mind ?

                • I don't mind it but my boyfriend finds it gross so we wait until I'm done. Right now I'm on the implant birth control so I no longer have a period so we don't have to wait for it to get over to have sex which is nice

                  • I am a woman and i personally do not enjoy period sex. The sensation is just weird especially when using a condom, it just hurts
