In addition to the many benefits of period sex, it also feels really good. Why? Well, for a lot of people, they’re hornier than usual when they have their period. Also, because you are menstruating, there’s no need for lube, so things are really slippery and fun. “Some women love having sex on their period since the blood acts as a perfect lubricant,” Dr. Ross says.
Even if you don’t climax, sex on your period still feels great. “There is more blood flow to the uterus, cervix, and vagina during that time of the month, and some enjoy the fullness during sexual stimulation,” Dr. Ross notes. “Some women feel as though their orgasms are stronger during their period.”
The takeaway? Period sex can be pretty awesome; you just need to go into it realizing what’s involved. Of course, you may try it and think it’s the worst, and that’s totally fine, too. With this information in your pocket, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect.
