Any advice for having sex during your period?
Q. You asked: I find that I'm especially in the mood when I'm on my period. Any advice for having sex during your period?
A. I'm so glad to hear you like to have sex when you're on your period! Too many women - and men - have inhibitions and hang-ups about this. There are a few definite tips to use during period-sex.
First, positions where you're on your back, or side, lead to less likelihood of staining your sheets. So you can use 'classic missionary', or 'the ploughman' where he kneels over you, and your knees are bent into his chest, (obviously you're lying on your back) or 'unfold the flower' where again he kneels over you, you're on your back, and your legs are slung over his shoulders.
Or you can use the 'classic spoons' where you're both on your sides, he's behind you, and facing your back. Any of these work well. Also if you have a bath rather than a standing shower - you'll find the water pressure of sitting in a bath always seems to "slow down" your menstrual flow for a little while. So if you enjoy a nice bath and then slip between the sheets, your flow won't be at its peak. Also, it's always handy to put away your best linen set during the week of your period and put your older sheets on your bed.
