Opinion about periods & sex from guys

Hi,
I have a few questions regarding sex while there is a menstrual flow going on.

Do any of you men participate in this with your partners? Also, how it is? Is it messy, is it something you've never tried, and don't wish to? Is it something you completely enjoy?

The reason i ask is because my boyfriend is going to be back from school for 2 weeks...and i'll have my period during that time.

By the way, my periods usually last 3 days, and they're usually only heavy the first day. So, should i should abstain from sex on the heavy day...and the light days would be no problem? no sheet stains?

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

Personally I don't partake in sex when my wife is on her period. There are other methods of satisfaction for your b/f. You can tell him you're on your period and let him make the decision. For me, it can be messy with the blood and everything. Why don't you give him a going away b/j instead.

Good luck,

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

All you really need to do is put down some plastic on the bed before you have sex and be prepared for the two of you to shower afterwards. I used to find that I enjoyed sex quite a bit at that time of the month and even had an increased sex drive some months at that time. Be sure to approach your boyfiend about it though because it may not be something he feels he would like to do. If that is the case then go ahead and plan for some alternate sexual activities. Good Luck.

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

Let us all join in a moment of respectful silence in honor of the passing of the Today sponge, that contraceptive wonder that also allowed no mess sex during your period thanks to it's wondrous absorbent properties.

I hear you can still buy it in Canada, but apparently due to (graphic insults censored) who left it in too long, got TSS and sued, you still can't in the US.

Just tell your man, 'honey, I've got my period, so we'll have to do it in the shower'. That's a popular guy fantasy, so I don't think he'll complain, and even the most fastidious guy won't see anything that might freak him out-if your flow's heavy, turn the lights off and use candles 'for the mood'.

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

Thanks for the replies everyone!#

I haven't yet heard of this sponge thing...maybe I'll be able to find one.

As for talking to my boyfriend, I did, and he said that he would rather not participate in sex on my heavy day, but the other days would enjoy trying the shower. (we've never had sex in the shower as of yet).

With sex, we're usually quite spur of the moment people, we never really plan anything. That's why i was asking, just incase one of our spur of the moment moments was during that time.

Thanks everyone!

(it was especially nice to hear a guy's opinion on the subject too!)

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

It will get messy. So you may want to lay down a towel or use the shower. But both will need to shower regardless afterwords.

Just ask your boyfriend what he wants to do, and decide.

I personally don't mind doing it on my girlfriends period. I find that my girlfriend is even more sensitive when she is on her period, so it works out well for all.

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

Well, my husband and I do occasionally have sex while I'm on my period. We either make love in the shower, or use a towel to protect the sheets and then shower afterwards.

We don't do it very often though, because it usually hurts to have sex while I'm on my period. I'm not sure why, and I think I'm in the minority on that.

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

not sure how long-term your relationship is, but it seems to me that there would be an increased risk of STD transmission at this time of the month...

other than that, I have never had a problem with it (but the g/f of 3 years doesn't like to do it at that time of month because she feels its dirty)...

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

This is just a question of curiosity that I have for the guys that do have sex with their wives/girlfriends when they are having their period..

Do you guys wear condoms or just go natural????

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

Personally, I do not enjoy sex whilst having a period. As someone before said, I find that it actually hurts. I tried it once, but I had belly pain before I started and when I finished everything else hurt as well and my bellyache was worse too.

Nowadays, I just wait till after it finishes.

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

I have a bad experience with it and that's probably why I dont like it. My girlfriends period was light and we decided to have sex and the lights were out and everything and it felt perfectly normal and really good but afterwards when I went to take off the condom I found out that it had broke and I turned on the lights and not only did the condom break but there was blood all over my D!ck and it looked like I had just murdered someone with it. &lt;-- exaggerating a little. But nah it wasn't that messy just a little puddle. Not something I'd do more than once unless it was in the shower.

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

My fiance and I both enjoy having sex while I'm on my period. He loves that he doesn't have to wear a condom and I love that I seem to have more intense orgasms. Must be because my hormone levels are higher or something. My period only lasts around 2 days anyway and we always take a shower together afterwards.

Just lay down a towel and enjoy yourselves. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

Re: Opinion about periods & sex from guys

My wife and I have had sex when she was having her peroid.

It is good, we always have a towel, or something on the bed to catch whatever blood may leak out. The feeling are good for both of us.

Like someone stated above, both of you need to get cleaned up right after climax.

But whatever you do , be sure you and your boyfriend are in full agreement.

Asher
