How To Have Period Sex That Doesn’t Look Like A Crime Scene

Published

on

Period sex can be bloody, it can be messy, and it can be incredible. The hormonal changes that come with your period mean that you might see surge in their libido during that time of the month. Some people even report having more intense orgasms while they’re on their period.

Of course, not everyone loves period sex. In fact, one survey indicates that it’s roughly evenly divided: 55% of people thought period sex was “natural or awesome,” while 45% found it “kinda gross.” Even if you’re okay with the blood, some people experience cramps, bloating, pain, or fatigue during their period, and would much rather curl up in bed for a nap.

If you don’t feel up for period sex, no problem — there are plenty of other days in the month. But if you do want to have period sex, here are some tips for having the most fun with the least mess.
Sex positions that work with gravity, including missionary, spooning, and side-by-side, will help minimize mess. But if you love cowgirl, you don’t have to give it up — maybe just lay down an extra towel first. And if you’re taking it to the shower, try some standing sex positions.

The only way to safely delay your period is by using hormonal birth control to skip your period. If you’re on the pill, you can simply start a new pack instead of taking the placebo pills. “It is absolutely safe to do,” Raquel Dardik, MD, clinical associate professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU Langone Medical Center, previously told Refinery29. You can use the patch, the shot, or any other kind of hormonal birth control similarly: simply start your next dose when you’d usually have your period.

When it comes to other methods for stopping your period, there’s not much that works safely. You may have heard that ibuprofen may delay your period, but the dose needed would be so high that no doctor would advise you to do this: high doses of anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen can be harmful to your stomach lining. Similarly, drinking alcohol may affect your cycle, but this doesn’t mean it’s safe to drink to delay your period. You can’t simply drink one or two glasses of wine to stop your period a few hours before sex — that won’t work. Drinking apple cider vinegar is another sometimes-suggested home remedy, but there’s no evidence to suggest has any effect on your period, either, and the high acidity can harm your teeth and esophagus. So skip the home remedies — they’re not worth the health risks.

Is it safe to have sex on your period?

Any time you have sex, you can still transmit STIs — and that includes period sex. Some research suggests that you may be slightly more susceptible to STIs on your period, because your cervix is more open. But, just like sex while not on your period, you can reduce your risk by using a barrier method like condoms or dental dams, getting tested regularly, and taking any relevant medication to manage or prevent STIs.

Can you get pregnant on your period?

Although the risks of pregnancy are much lower during your period, pregnancy is still possible. When you ovulate, usually around the 14th day of your cycle, your egg leaves your fallopian tube, and it can remain there for about 24 hours. Sperm typically lives for three to five days, but can live for up to seven days inside the body. So if you have sex near the end of your period and ovulate early, you could get pregnant, particularly if you have a shorter than average cycle. Again, this is rare, but not impossible, so it’s best to use birth control to be safe.

When should you have sex on your period?

Your period will be messiest on the days when you have a heavier flow, typically during your first few days. Period sex will be less messy when you have a lighter flow, typically at the end of your period. So if you’re concerned about mess, you might want to have period sex towards the end of your period. But if you and your partner don’t mind getting a little bloody, then go ahead and have period sex at any time.

How to avoid making a mess

There are a lot of ways you can reduce the mess from period sex, or even avoid it entirely. First, you can choose to have sex that doesn’t involve the vagina, so you can keep a tampon or menstrual cup in. You can have your partner rub your clitoris, you two can mutually masturbate (with you focusing on your clitoris), or you can have anal sex. You could also choose another sexual activity that lets you leave your tampon or cup in, like dry-humping.

For another no-mess option, you can wear a diaphragm or certain brands of menstrual cups for penetrative sex (check the instructions to see if it’s approved for this use). If you’re simply removing your pad, tampon, or cup for sex, there are still mess-reduction tactic you can take. You could have sex in the shower for easy clean-up, or simply lay down a towel on your bed (or, if you’ve got cash to spend, a period sex blanket). If you do accidentally stain your sheets, you can treat a period blood stain with cold water and stain remover.

Are there any benefits to period sex?

The rumors are true: Period sex can reduce menstrual cramps. When you orgasm, your pelvic muscles contract and release, which can help alleviate cramping. Besides that, the same benefits you usually get from sex — pleasure, stress relief, bonding with your partner — also apply during period sex. Plus, period blood provides some all-natural lube. If and your partner are interested in period sex, why not try it? You might be surprised by how much you enjoy it.

They (Terri and Wizkid) would go on to build an organic relationship with eachother, leading to Terri being signed to the label, StarBoy Entertainment after recording the hit record – ‘Soco’ – with Wizkid but one thing would have to take a step back and be put on hold for the time being, that thing turned out to be Terri’s tertiary education.

The Headies 2020 successfully held last week Sunday (21st February) where Nigerian rapper and reality TV star Laycon was one of the guest performers at the event but the major takeaway from his overall outing, turned out to be the gigantic pair of shoes he rocked while performing which made for a trend on microblogging platform, Twitter. A week later, Laycon has come out to tell the world why he chose to perform in those shoes.

Laycon who performed with DJ Neptune to the tunes of their hit single—‘Nobody’— wore a black round-neck vest to go with a matching glittering jacket and pant, topping the clothing with an all-white sneakers, a gigantic one at that, drawing comparison to the massive footwears Nephilims like Goliath wore back in the Biblical times.

On what looked to be an Open-Mic performance, Laycon addressed the audience on why he wore such “oversized” pair of shoes to an event as grand as The Headies. Laycon said: “I told my stylist ‘I have different shoes but I want this one, it’s very big, it makes a statement.’ Every step I take is a big step towards wherever it is I’m going to and I need a big shoe for that.” He adds: “And it is also create a path for other people to follow, to know that the moves this guy has made, the can make those moves and also be successful.”

This however did not go down well with fans as they have tagged this as flimsy excuses and weak PR attempt at redeeming something inconsequential. Others just reacted with laughing emojis, treating the words of Laycon on the video as joke.
