Should You Have Sex On Your Period?

Aunt Flow’s in town and you’re in the mood. But should you get freaky?

Recently, I asked Boo if he had ever had sex with a woman when she was on her period. It was part of a series of “what have you done sexually” questions that came up during a candid sex talk. He shook his head, “No, I don’t think I have. At least not on a full-on period.” “Would you want to?” I asked curiously. He shrugged, unsure of his desire to do the deed when I’m flowing a bloody river.

This got me to thinking: would it be so bad to have sex on your period? Apparently, sex when we are menstruating aids in relieving cramps. But only if you experience orgasm. When we orgasm, the brain releases endorphins that helps ease pain. Also, when we are menstruating our pelvis and genitals are fuller due to increased blood flow. That’s why sometimes women feel hornier before and during their period. Sex during your period can also be pleasurable because, well, we are wetter than ever! For men, the wetter the better.

Still, as open minded as I am, I just can’t get the thought of a bloody penis out of my head. It’s like Carrie – the porn flick!

But, is it safe? Aside from the obvious yucky factor (I feel so disgustingly bloated when Aunt Flow comes to visit) there are health concerns. You are at a higher risk to getting a yeast infection or a bacterial infection. If having unprotected sex while on your period, your chances of contracting an STD, HIV or Hepatitis increases due to the cervix opening when we are menstruating.

If you still want to venture into sex while on your period, don’t forget to wrap it up! And lay a towel underneath your booty so your bed isn’t reminiscent of Carrie’s prom dress.
