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.
