So apparently men not wanting to have sex with a woman on her period is a thing! How immature of the males out there. You can absolutely have sex during your period. Period sex is percent fine, as long as you and your partner are both comfortable with it. A lot of folks think period sex must be really messy, but how messy it is depends on how heavy your period is. Having sex on a day when your period is at its heaviest will be messier than having sex when your period is really light. Some people also choose to have sex in the shower to keep the mess to a minimum. If you want to use a product to contain the bleeding during sex, Softcups , a kind of disposable menstrual cup , are designed to be useable during sex to reduce mess.
Looks like you're in the UK. Did you know The Strategist is too? Guys who are into periods? At the time, I was skeptical. Some reasons are physical and hormonal; others practical; and many more are tied to erotic associations and pride in reveling in the uncensored female body.
