The degree to which men are afraid of periods, don’t want to talk about them, don’t want to be around their partners on their periods and overall like to pretend they don’t exist is maddening. If you’re a man, I bet your partner has had sex with you after you destroyed the bathroom following a big burrito. I bet she’s done it with you after you’ve been to the gym and haven’t showered. I bet she’s even done it with you when, honestly, you were being pretty lazy and annoying that day and she wasn’t even feeling that into you. And you can’t man up and have sex with her while she is going through something she cannot even control? That doesn’t seem fair now does it? You’ve heard the saying that if you can’t handle someone at their worst then you don’t deserve them at their best. Well, if you can’t handle the vagina at its worst, you don’t deserve it at its best. Here is why you should have period sex with your partner.
Because she lets you all month long
She lets you in there the rest of the month. She lets you put your penis inside of her all month long. Do you know how much a person has to trust someone and open up to let them inside of them? No. Because you’re a straight male. Well it’s kind of a big deal, so be willing to pay the toll. (But don’t call it a toll because that will make her mad).
It could put her in a better mood
You know how your partner is kind of cranky on her period? Well giving her an orgasm also gives her a burst of relaxing, mood-elevating hormones. You’ll both benefit from her being happier around the house.
It could relieve her cramps
The way the uterus contracts during an orgasm can relieve cramps. Furthermore, orgasms produce natural pain-killing chemicals that alleviate some of your partner’s cramp-related pain. Are you really going to deprive her of this?
You’re down for anal but not this? Come on.
So just to get this straight, you’re constantly trying to get her to let you get up in her back door business—where feces are made—but you aren’t down for a little period blood? That logic makes no sense.
It’s the best lubrication
Period blood has a sticky consistency that mimics lube. If you’re willing to look away or close your eyes, it will just feel like the best lubrication you’ve ever used. And you can save some of the expensive store-bought stuff for another time.
It may end her period sooner
When your partner has an orgasm, it causes her uterus to contract, causing it to shed the lining and blood quicker than it normally would. If you’re willing to have period sex, you may be on the path back to non-period sex sooner.
She’ll think you’re a total boss
Your partner will actually find it very attractive that you’re man enough to have period sex. She’ll love how comfortable you are with the human body, and that you’re mature enough to recognize that if you want to enjoy that vagina the rest of the month, you should be willing to get in there now. When men are afraid of periods, it’s honestly a turn-off.
She takes care of it for you
She keeps up with her gynecology appointments. She takes her pill every day or replaces her IUD in a timely manner. She shaves or waxes down there. She puts in a lot of maintenance down there for you, and you are going to abandon her in her time of need? Not cool.
There’s always shower sex
If the mess really upsets you then you can always have shower sex. Or bath tub sex. Those are both very fun types of sex.
It’s not the blood bath you think
Unless you have sex on her heavy day, there probably won’t even be that much blood. Most men are surprised by the lack of a mess that comes with period sex.
We’re down with your fluids
We let you put your semen in all sorts of places. We are totally comfortable with the fluids that come out of your bodies. You owe us the decency of getting comfortable with our fluids.
She is extremely horny
Your partner is horny on her period! If you deny her sex you are blue-balling her. Would she do that to you? Would she leave you hanging with a huge erection? Because metaphorically speaking, you are doing that to her. That’s cruel.
Your friends are doing it
If you’re embarrassed thinking your friends would tease you, just know they’re having period sex. They may not be talking about it, but they’re having it.
The pregnancy risk is lower
There is almost a zero percent chance that a woman will become pregnant within the first two days of her period. If you’ve been looking for a way to use fewer condoms, there you go.
Because grow up
If this is the woman in whom you’d one day like to put a baby then it’s time for you to grow up and recognize that the vagina is far more than the sex object it appears to be in adult films. You have a long road ahead of you with your partner’s vagina, so get comfortable with it.
