Period Sex Tip One
First things first, take the time to remove your tampon before taking things any further. In addition, talk to your partner if using a condom is their preference. Remember, pregnancy and contracting STDs is still a possibility, so when in doubt, wrap it up.
All in all, it’s important that both parties know that period sex isn’t the most eye-appealing. But with that being said, every woman’s body is different when it comes to the flow of their cycle, so plan accordingly.
Sex Tip Number Two
With period sex, expect the sheets to get messy. If you and your partner decide to get down in bed, lay out a towel preferably a dark colored towel beforehand to absorb any fluids from staining. Another great tip to avoid any blood leaks or stains is to take the sex to the shower. Sex in the shower will wash away any residual blood and clean up afterwards is effortless. Plus, you both can sensually wash up together.
Our biggest takeaway is knowing that period sex is completely safe and natural. Don’t let Mother Nature take away the fun. As long as you and your partner are both comfortable with the idea and don’t mind the prep work, enjoy and have fun!
