Thx shay love that you are education the masses.“*
I have no idea what rumors you’ve heard about period sex, but…
Assuming you are both healthy, there’s nothing wrong with having sex during your partner’s period. In fact a lot of women enjoy it quite a lot; we can be more sensitive when we are menstruating because the area is swollen (which is natural). Plus, sex is excellent for relieving cramps; the muscle contractions when she orgasms help push fluids out of the uterus. AND sex while she’s on her period can feel nice because the whole canal is more lubricated. Some women even feel extra horny during their period because of the changes in their hormone levels.
HOWEVER. Don’t think that you can skip using protection by having sex when she’s on her period: you can still transmit infections (STI’s) and there is still a chance she could get pregnant.
Period sex can be a little messy, so I would suggest laying down a towel first, or having sex in the shower – just to make things a little easier. I’ve written a little more about this HERE.
