If you’re having your period, you may be assuming that s3x is off-limits. Maybe you don’t feel comfortable being intimate during your period, or you often feel unattractive or just unclean. Maybe your partner isn’t comfortable with intimacy while you’re menstruating. In the end, choosing to have sex during “that time of month” is a personal choice that both you and your partner have to be comfortable with.
Here are seven reasons to get it on when you have your period.
1. It Helps Alleviate Cramps
If you suffer major cramps during your period, then an orgasm can help nip those in the bud.
2.We’re usually hornier around our periods
Why are we skipping something we really, really want because we’re scared of a little blood? Admit it, you’re horny as f*** when your period hits. Give in to what you want. Treat yourself.
3.You won’t need lube
If you’re naturally on the dry side, Period blood is a natural lubricant, bro.
4.It Can Shorten The Length Of Your Period
With every orgasm you have, your uterus contracts. Each contraction expels the blood and uterine lining faster than it would on its own. Having s3x during your period will not only shorten its length.
5.Because everyone’s doing it
People hardly ever talk about having hot, amazing period s3x. But trust us, loads of people are doing it and enjoying it. If it’s not right for you, we’d never say you have to have s3x on your period. That’s your choice.
6.It Can Create Greater Intimacy
When you’re willing to open up the floodgates and have s3x on your period, you’re also opening the doors to a deeper intimacy. And you already have to the next level.
7.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.
