How to have sex on your periodFreyja

It is excruciatingly unfair, as someone that bleeds for a week of every month, to find myself the most horny during this time, but why have we drawn an imaginery line between our period and sex, why can't we have sex on our period? The answer is, we absolutely can. At some point in recent history, someone decided that having sex on your period was not the done thing, and from then it became something outside the social norm to admit you do it. But sex on your period can be as incredible, if not more so, then sex when you aren't menstruating. Here are some tips for having sex on your period...
- First and foremost, let us reset, there is nothing wrong with our period, it is our body working and doing what it is meant to do, unless you are someone that goes weak at the sight of blood, don't let the red stuff bother you, it is completely natural and healthy.
- Talk to your partner about any worries or doubts, you are in this together, on the other hand talk to your partner if it is something you really want to try so that you can agree on it together.
- Dark coloured sheets are a must, as even with a good stain remover, blood on white sheets is always going to hang around for a good while. You can also lay down a towel, but I personally find that a bit sterile for sex.
- Try something more animalistic - the shower (no clean up required) a kitchen surface (mmm wipe clean and make dinner straight after) the garden (alfresco sex is a true turn on)
- Keep wet wipes close to hand for the aftermath clean up
- Remember to remove a tampon if you have one in!
There are many benefits to having sex on your period, a shortened list includes:
- Relief from period cramps. Orgasms contract the muscles around your uterus and can help relieve any uncomfortable cramping.
- Feel good factor! Let's face it, we MAINLY feel crap on our periods and sex triggers endorphins, which make you feel good!
- Shorter period. The muscle contractions from orgasms help to push out the uterus content a little faster, resulting in shorter menstruation time.
- Increased sex drive. As I mentioned above, we get unfairly horny during our period, it is only fair to see that it is taken care of.
- Headache relief. Sex is known to relieve headaches whether you are on your period or not, so all the more reason to get to it!
- Natural lubricant! Need I say more!
One thing I get asked a lot is how we shoot porn on our periods, there are two answers to this, some performers choose to take a week off a month for themselves whilst they menstruate, whilst others don't want to miss out on a week's worth of work. In those cases, performers will use natural sponge, or sponge tampons in the shape of a ring, generally soaked in natural coconut oil and inserted inside their vagina, this then needs to be removed straight after the shoot to avoid it becoming a hazard. I would not personally recommend this method in your private sex life, it is not very comfortable or practical.
