Wondering how you can have sex during your period? Here’s a complete guide to having sex on your period and the tips you need to know to have a good bang.

Unless you find the whole idea of having sex during your menstruation a huge turn off or a taboo subject based on religious or social grounds, understanding this basic guide to having sex on your period could open a whole new window of opportunity during those days of the month.

The good side of having sex on your period

Firstly, having sex on your period is almost never as messy as you think *if you’re okay with a spot or two on the sheets now and then*. There are a lot of benefits about having sex on your period too.

# Your period will end sooner than normal. During your period, involuntary muscle spasms along your uterine walls cause your blood to flow out over a few days. When you orgasm during sex, your orgasms create stronger muscle spasms that push your blood out faster within a day or two. If you’ve noticed this already, you should understand that your blood hasn’t vanished or gone back inside your body. It’s just come out quicker than normal.

# The reduction of cramping pain. Period cramps put a girl’s body under a lot of stress, leading to more pain and mood swings. When you have sex during your period, a good orgasm releases a lot of feel good hormones into your body which reduce the pain and make you feel better instantly.

# A few girls actually feel horny during their periods. Are you one of them? Ever felt really horny on the first day of your period or just before your period starts? It’s because of all the hormonal changes that your body experiences during the release. For some girls, it just makes them more hornier and sex can feel so much better.

12 tips on having sex on your period

If you’ve been interested in the idea or have tried it a few times, here are a few tips to make the whole flow game a lot easier and sexier.

#1 Use a cloth. This is a basic move that all of us should know. Place a soft cloth under your butt to avoid staining the bed.

#2 Keep tissues nearby, especially if he comes into you. You already have a fluid waiting to come out. Add his load to it and you have considerable amount of fluids in there that’s waiting to come out as soon as you move or lift your back up. Cover your wet spot with a tissue and sit up after sex. You won’t notice a difference in the way you feel. [Read: 7 sexiest types of sex you can ever have!]

#3 Missionary is a safe position. If you’re on your period, don’t get on top. A few lessons on gravity should explain that. Instead, lie on your back and just enjoy the ride while your man does all the work.

#4 It’s safer to ejaculate into you. If you’re not on the pill, this may be your man’s dream come true. Men like ejaculating, but they understand the importance of a condom or the pull out method. During your period, a guy could ejaculate into you without the regular risk of pregnancy. But then again, do so at your own risk because there have been a few rare cases of pregnancy after ejaculating into a girl during her period. [Read: 20 things that turn guys on about a girl]

#5 Wear a condom if you’re not in a monogamous relationship. Sexually transmitted diseases travel better in blood than in sexual fluid. So unless you know your sexual partner like the back of your hand, it’s still not safe to take that protection off.

#6 Wrap a blanket. If you or your boyfriend is bothered by any odor during the act, wrap your blanket around yourselves up to the neck while doing the missionary and viola, no nose pinching required.

#7 Shower sex. Shower sex was probably invented to have sex during the period. If you’re having sex under flowing water, there’s a good chance both of you won’t even realize you’re on your period.

#8 Don’t let him finger you unless he likes what’s on his hands. You’re wet already, so your man doesn’t really need to use his fingers or spend too much time with his hands around your pelvis to make you wet. Just tell him to stick it in slowly and you’ll be able to smoothen it through. [Read: Top 10 female sexual fantasies]

#9 Heavy flow. If you experience heavy flows, avoid having sex during the first couple of days. It’s easier to have sex after your heaviest days. At times, both of you may not even notice the difference.

#10 Sperm stays alive for up to 72 hours. Well, just in case you’re wondering about this little detail, if your man ejaculates into you, his little minions will be taking a swim down there for close to three days.

#11 Oral sex during menstruation. This is a tricky subject to discuss about, some couples like it and many others don’t. If you like it, you definitely don’t need any tips here. But if you’re contemplating over this, don’t worry, you’re not a weirdo! [Read: How to make him go down on you without a push]

#12 The panty puller move. If you’re wearing sanitary pads, pull the panties and the pad to one side and give him some space to penetrate you from one side of your panties. He may like how tight it feels, and it’ll reduce any outflow or squirts when he takes his member out.

Do guys like having sex during your period?

Some guys actually like it better than normal sex, call it a fetish or call it just one of many things that fascinate guys about girls. [Read: Top 10 sexual fantasies for men]

For all others, it’s a unique experience worth trying at least once. Hardly any guys are ever put off by it. In almost all cases, it’s usually the girl who has a problem with it.

  3. Weird says:

    My boyfriend says that he would not care if i ever give the chance to him of doing it during my period, but i feel that it would be discusting and i’ve tell him… But he still won’t mind.

  4. Erica drew says:

    Sex on your period is amazing.my boyfriend loves it too

    Taller than me so we just put a towel on the
    Carpet and I normally get on top and actually
    Even when it’s a heavy flow it stops til were done
    I have a Better orgasm. My boyfriend also loves
    To finger me. It turns us both on

  5. Maya says:

    This is very helpful. The last two bf’s I’ve had wanted to try and have period sex but I was so put off by it. I do get extremely horny on my period and have light flow even before taking birth control (I am back on it), so now I feel more confident now that I have some tips to do it right. Thank you.

  6. Shelly says:

    Sorry 🙁 Now then. I enjoyed the story. Having my period coupled with him inside me I get a nice feeling of being “full.” Having sex then does make my perion end sooner.

  7. GetSome says:

    Sex on your period is SOOO bomb. Ive came across a few men that arnt for it. Something i dont understand. They dont wanna f*ck a bloody vagina but they have no problem f*cking a bloody butthole? How does it make any sense. Lol, just curious to why some men are like that?

  8. Elizabeth says:

    I actually love it on my period. At first it was something awkward to talk about but now its nothing. We have tried it so many different ways while on my period. And its so easy to do everything.

  9. Kae says:

    #4 needs to leave. First it’s all like IT’S FINE and then contradicts itself by saying sometimes it’s possible. UH DUH It’s possible. PSHHHH. Wow.

  10. jes says:

    I like it, it takes away my cramps, I also like it when he sucks my clit on my period too…

  11. Sandra says:

    I like it when my boyfriend sucks the blood clots out my hole like red slugs he loves it too

  12. Kate says:

    You can definitely still get pregnant on your period, so you shouldn’t risk it if you don’t want to get pregnant!! #4 is totally inaccurate, the chances of getting pregnant are the same whether you’re on your period or not.

  13. rach says:

    This for me has always been disgusting and vile (not judging anyone, what you like is completely your choice. I am just stating my opinion) but my husband and I have been trying for baby number 2 for over 2 years wth no success. Mainly because my cycles are every 14 days (I know! Sucks to be me right!) And 9 times out of 10 I am ovulating during my period I just dont know if I can get past how gross it sounds :/

  14. Meg says:

    I have always been in a committed relationship when I’ve decided to have sex on my period. My boyfriends have always found it a little gross, but I don’t hear complaining until the act is done and there is a mess. Sometimes you just want to have sex, and I wouldn’t let a little blood get in the way!

  15. leo cline says:

    i enjoy the whole period sex thing i still love to eat my lady out when shes on her period and i don’t find her vaginal blood covering me sick at all

  16. Rue says:

    Great tips and info here, although i have to say its horrible to tell girls you’re less likely to get pregnant if you have sex on your period. It’s not ‘rare’. The risk is exactly the same, so always be safe.

  17. hmm! says:

    Sex on your period is by far the best. My fianc

  18. Elise says:

    Females should not have sex while on their period. This is the body’s way of cleaning itself and they suffer for it as they age and it’s not worth the few moments of pleasure.

  19. Jaye says:

    I think it’s such a turn on!! My partner doesn’t mind either. I feel more lusty when I’m on my period so the sex is more kinky.

  20. Elle says:

    I once dated a guy that believed having sex when on her period was how guys got HIV, surprisingly enough that wasn’t the dumbest thing to come out of his mouth.

  21. V says:

    One thing that I find makes it a whole lot easier is using a menstrual cup (I prefer instead softcup myself). In general it’s an easier period, plus it makes for less messy and more enjoyable period sex!

  22. Maya says:

    Eating a girl and sucking her clit while she is on her period is sexy? I a girl and i think this is disgusting!

  23. andrew says:

    I love doin it when my girl is on her period its tighter and ain’t that messy, yall guys that don’t like it needs to grow some balls and give ur lady what they want no matter what blood don’t hurt nobody quit bein a baby and suck it up… if u want it then fuck it if not dnt worry bout it and don’t

  24. robin hood says:

    were all all these men my boyfriends tells me it is gross, i get so horney . he has a bit of a low sex drive annyway 🙁 i have a verry high one but on my period it is off the chart

  25. Leiah says:

    I’ve never really had a problem with getting a bf to do the act during that time.BUT you have some explaining to do with your safe sex tips!

    That is wildly irresponsible and innaccurate.

  26. Bill says:

    A46 yrs. Old male here’s a few tips were a condom,she can get pregnant. If your partner will let you &you try going down on her do it as close to the end of the bed as possible,have a bowl of warm water,to wipe your face after unless your partner thinks looking like mass murderer is sexy, a small trash can & a travel size mouth wash , she will be happier if you use it , throw a way the bottle ok it’s cheap. In general use a cpl. Towels under her black or dark colored, stains not so noticeable that way again you don’t want this to look like a murder seen . If your able to go down on her during her period, & use the stuff i said if she’s in love with you she will won’t leave you alone good luck keep clean…

  27. Erin says:

    I’m wanting to try period sex for the second time. I tried it once, but it was a really long time ago and i also lost my virginity at the same time, lol. I’m 29 now. My boyfriend now says he would not be bothered by blood, but that’s not the problem! I can deal with a little blood just like he can, but the problem is that i don’t really know how to actually START this sort of “romp” without it being awkward. He likes foreplay and so do i, but can you imagine having your man fondle you and have his hand covered in blood? That is embarrassing. Then to make matters worse, can you also imagine being like “hey babe, lets get it on! Hold on, i have to go take out my TAMPON! ” Mood killer much? ? ? This is the only thing stopping me from having period sex. I don’t know how to initiate it without thinking I’m going to embarrass myself. I always chicken out because i don’t know what I’m supposed to do to get things going…….you know, before actual intercourse. This has been stressing me out a lot! I just want to get past this already! For the record, I’ve never been a huge fan of discussing my period with anyone, let alone period SEX. I feel weird even just writing about it here.

  28. Amanda says:

    I have no problem with this but my husband does. How can I get him past the thought and just enjoy it?

  29. tandy says:

    If my cramps are really, really bad I avoid it but I not remotely against the idea. If they aren’t bad I am practically in heat. I’m curious about the woman who said that women shouldn’t do it and will suffer for it as they get older. Sounds like religious taboo bunkum to me. Not to mention a rather terrible thing to tell young women who should really be LESS ashamed of their sexuality, not more ashamed.

    The question I want to ask these young women is why they are questioning whether or not the signals their body is giving them are wrong. If your body is aroused, roll with it. Don’t hide from it out of shame. Why would you do that? Because of what someone told you to do with your own body?

    Nope. This is my body. No one will make me ashamed of my body.

  30. BeachGirl says:

    I think the best way to do period sex is to get all showered up, insert a tampon and then he and I do oral, especially 69. I am horny as hell at that time of the month and he doesn’t mind skipping a few days of intercourse, since he is getting good oral!

  31. skye says:

    I find it gross. But I’m always horny when I’m on my period. If my partner doesn’t like sex during periods. 🙁

  32. cata20 says:

    Yea it really feels amazing

  33. mercy says:

    I’ve never tried but throug your advice i can test

  34. John Surfield says:

    Many years ago I went down on my wife at the tail end of her period and she tasted so fresh and sweet, it was truly amazing

  35. SweetFace says:

    My guy had never had period sex Til he met me. He loves it and doesn’t mind at all. I’ve been on the shot for almost a year now so My period has been crazy. From spotting, to low and heavy flows. He hasn’t been bothered one bit. Even when I’m spitting, he’ll still go down on me and never wants to stop. What works for me is obviously Towels, I find Pamper’s baby wipes work the best for wiping up for both of us. I don’t think men should be afraid to have sex with their partner just because she’s on her period. Chances are she is extremely horny and in all honest sex is 20x better than if the girl was off her period.

  36. SweetFace says:


  37. SweetFace says:

    Oh,one more thing… I like to light up Bath & Body works candles. Even during non-period sex, it’s romantic, and the scent of the candle just makes things more pleasant .

  38. John doe says:

    People people people. You can get pregnant if the guy ejaculated inside you while on your period. Sperms can live inside the uterus from anywhere 3-5 days. Not a smart choice. This shit will screw kids over smh

  39. Robert Wayne says:

    I was a bit leery the first time I made love to my girlfriend Rachel during her period. And she admitted that she was a bit embarrassed but it was obvious by her moans and sighs that she really enjoyed it. In fact we’ve been married now for 9 years and have 4 kids but she still says she’s hornier than ever during her period and says that sex, especially a long, slow fucking in the doggy style position, is the only thing that really helps her cramps.
