Is period sex safe?

Is period sex safe?

I’ve got some great news for you. Even though it can get messy, protected sex during the menstrual cycle is entirely safe! In fact, an orgasm can release endorphins (feel-good hormones) that can lessen painful menstrual symptoms, like cramping and headaches. Plus, blood acts as a natural lube, which can make penetrative sex even more enjoyable. 

If you lay a towel down beforehand, or partake in a change of scenery (shower), the messiness of period sex can be seriously reduced. It can be a very vulnerable and exciting experience with your sexual partner. So, as long as protection is used, period sex can be a fun, new act of sexual expression. Just make sure to maintain an open line of communication between yourself and your partner throughout the whole experience and you should be great! Good luck!
