Ladies! 13 Reasons Why You Should Have Sex During Mensuration


According to the Facebook comments on our recent post about a tampon you can wear during sex, it’s a serious debate.
For some reason, loads of men and women think period sex is ‘gross’, ‘disgusting’, and ‘nasty’.
Which is pretty infuriating, to be honest, because all this squeamishness is just reinforcing the idea that periods are disgusting and shameful, and that – in effect – women’s bodies are, too.

We get that having sex on your period isn’t for every woman. Maybe your PMS doesn’t put you in the mood. Maybe you can’t relax because you’re too worried about spills. Maybe you’ve got crisp white bedsheets.
But if it is something you’re open to, DO IT. There is no reason not to, and so, so many reasons to back up why period sex is a glorious thing.

1. It’s rarely as messy as you think

Unless you have extremely heavy periods, you’re very unlikely to end up in the pool of blood-stained sheets you’re imagining in your mind.
The average amount of blood released during menstruation is between 30 and 40ml. That’s over the course of a few days.
So imagine how little blood is actually being released per minute. Then consider how long your sex session is actually going to last. Hardly any blood. Seriously.
