Hi, I'm just wondering what peoples thoughts are about having sex whilst on their period? My last boyfriend hinted that he didn't mind if i was on, i felt a little shy about it but as i always feel horny when on, i did find myself thinking about it. What do you think?

My immediate thoughts are:
If it floats your boat then fair enough!

I don't feel like it because of period pain, but if you do then go for it!

oooh we had a big debate about this a few months ago

search for things like 'period towel' 'feminism' and lots of shouting

TrinityRhino Tue 09-Sep-08 10:41:58

If you fancy it then go for it
I have done and would do

most of the time when on I wouldn't feeli like it though

I don't even feel remotely horny when I'm on - so absolutely not - can't think of anything worse to do while AF is here......much rather over indulge in ben and jerry's and chocolate grin

My DP always wants to go for it regardless of periods, but itthink my head could be half hanging off and he would still want to he is a v.horny bugger. I on the other hand am a bit of a clean freak so wouldn't dream of doing it during my period, maybe i would consider it if it were in the last few days where its very light (since we use condoms) but generally no.

Ummmm not for me but if your in a serious relationship and its a light period don't see what the problem is as long as u both don't mind

We used to when we were at it like rabbits, but tbh, my periods are short (3 days) and heavy, so it's no great problem to wait a couple of days, so these days we do.

NO! I could think of nothing worse, I don't to be touched by anybody when i'm menstruating.

If you are both happy and relaxed about it then I can't see any problem. I know what you mean about feeling horny when having your period

ClairePO Tue 09-Sep-08 10:55:53

We do sometimes, DP is always quite keen and although it isn't my favourite time of the month to have sex I don't mind too much.

nope - too messy.

GirlWithTheMouseyHair Tue 09-Sep-08 12:34:35

eurgh no thanks....poor DH has to wait 3/4 days without any

bungalowbelle Tue 09-Sep-08 12:35:59

I love to because I'm pretty sure I won't get pregnant. I would never do it in full flow (though DH would) but happy to at begining and end.

bungalowbelle Tue 09-Sep-08 12:36:38

I won't let him, erm, how do I put this politely, um ... feck it ... go down on me. blush

OneLieIn Tue 09-Sep-08 12:37:39

Yes - get in the shower!

ForeverOptimistic Tue 09-Sep-08 12:37:55

Not for me. I once got my period whilst we were at it and both dh and I were surprised at how upset I got. We had been together 10 years at the time so it should not have been a big deal. I obviously have unresolved issues. grin

NappiesGalore Tue 09-Sep-08 12:39:22

i dont feel much like it when im on these days, but i always used to be horny as hell on my period.

just as an aside, if you use instead softcups , ahem, instead of tampons or mooncups etc, you can have sex on your period without bloodiness. if that bothers you.

never used to bother me... bit messy maybe, and the friction is all different... but hey, when youre horny youre horny, right?

ForeverOptimistic Tue 09-Sep-08 12:40:33

Just don't do it in your bosses bed. wink
