Seeing newish bloke fortnightly. Period coming to an end. We are so horny for each other, it's crazy. But I'm a bit mortified in case it doesn't end by the time I see him. Should I cancel?

I was married for 25 years, we never had sex while my wife was on her period. A year after we split up I met someone else, she encouraged me to have sex while she was having her period. It was fine. It was more than fine it was a new and fantastic experience, nothing not to like about it. We did put a load of towels on my bed to stop the mattress getting ruined.

Just tell him, and ask him how he feels about it. And if he's up for it, as the previous poster said, just put towels down. Its just another bodily fluid after all.

Thanks @Paul72 @NotaWickedStepMum55 I'm sure he'll be ok but it's more me thinking it's so offputting. Our relationship is very sexually charged. I just wondered whether men get put off.

Maybe let him know before you get too worked up for each other. For me it has never put me off having sex. As long as you are both comfortable who cares, enjoy yourselves.

Some men get put off. Some really don't care. If you're concerned, let him know that there's a possibility you might still be on your period, but you'd be up for playing it by ear/like to see him anyway for/ whatever you want to say

For me, it's not an issue. As long as the woman is happy and comfortable with the idea, I'd go for it.

Agree on putting something down, and I prefer to wear condoms if my partner is having a period, but that's just me.

There is a positive here, you need to communicate from early on. Some couples never do communicate. So discuss it with him.

But remember it’s not only about him. How do you feel about period sex? It never stopped me when l was younger, but these days, with periods heavier, it’s now only at the tail end.

Don't cancel, see how it goes. If it's still an issue tell him at the time. Guys know about periods so it's not really an issue. If he's not up for it do something else

I got the cap. It works really well on the last few days of a period. It catches the blood and I've never had the fb mention that he can feel it. Though he probably doesn't care!

Try soft tampons, game changer!

Ask him if he minds, don't assume he won't based on a few men on here. My DP really doesn't like it so it's always been an absolute no go at that time, even if I'm spotting.

Iv found its 50/50 with men.
Some men don’t care at all and others it’s a complete no.
Ask him how he feels.

Used to do it with Ex-W. Lovely, made us feel very close.

Menstrual sponges or ziggy cup. Or just ask him if he minds...

If He's not sure about it you could always offer to relieve him in other ways, Hands Boobs etc
My DH never objects and he makes it up to me the following week
