One of the worst things that happens when you have a woman you hook up with regularly is when she tells you that she’s on her period. Most guys take this is a sudden no-flight zone and resign themselves to not having any sex until it’s over. However, having sex with a woman while she’s on her period might not be as gross as you think it might be. You don’t need to stick your face in there while she’s bleeding, but you can still usually have sex without it being anything too disturbing. If the woman you’re with is fine with it, you might want to try having sex while she’s on her period, and there are a few things you should keep in mind if you do.
Keep Cleanliness in Mind
The biggest concern you have about having sex with a woman on her period is most likely the issue of hygiene. Even on the heaviest part of a woman’s period, she isn’t going to be gushing blood on you. Things will probably get a little bit messy, so it will be in your best interest to put down a towel if you’re going to have sex on a bed or couch, but you shouldn’t be too worried about it. You can use a condom if you’re particularly bothered about the idea of the blood, or if you don’t know the woman well. Having sex with a woman on her period is incredibly intimate, so you may want to pass on it if you do not know her very well. Otherwise, you should be fine, but you may still want to use a condom anyway.
It’s a Great Excuse for Shower Sex
Having sex in the shower while a woman on her period takes away some of the ick factor, so it can be a great reason to bring her into the shower or bath if you don’t do so regularly. The water will rinse away most of the blood so you don’t have to worry about it, and you can both rinse off as soon as you’re done, which is something you would probably wind up doing afterwards no matter what. If a woman is having bad cramps, she may not be up for this, but you should remind her that the hot spray of the shower will make her feel better anyway.
It May Actually Be Better Than Usual
Some women get extremely horny when they’re on their periods, so you can capitalize on these hormones if you play your cards right. She might get way freakier than she would normally be, so you should always keep track of her moods and how much she seems to want to go to bed. Some women don’t get these hormone swings at all, so you might not luck out, but if she does get particularly horny while on her period you can definitely still make the most of it instead of sacrificing a week of sex every month.
