Let’s get this straight: if you don’t want to have sex on your period, you shouldn’t. That being said, if you don’t want the fact that you’re on your period to stop you from getting it on, by all means, you and your bae should do it. Obviously, things might get a little gross, considering there is going to be blood involved, but it’s actually not as bad as you might imagine. Still, if you, like a lot of other people, are a little nervous to have someone inside of you while there is blood coming out of you, then you could probably use some tips to feel less nervous.
The number one thing to know before having sex on your period is to be prepared for it to get a little messy. One: be sure to put a towel down. Two, make sure to actually let your partner know what’s going on. Period sex isn’t for everyone, and you should make sure they’re okay with it before you guys start hooking up. And once all of that is done? It’s time to try some new sex positions, as well as some you definitely shouldn’t do. Ready to get it on? Don’t let a little period blood stop you! Here are a few sex positions you need to use during period sex:
Rub A Dub DubThis one has a silly name, but it is probably the cleanest and best option, since any blood will wash away in the shower. Stand in the shower with your bae behind you, and use the wall for support. This way, you can enjoy having sex without feeling self conscious or nervous that you are going to bleed all over your bed sheets. Source
Drill PositionYou want to try to avoid being on top during your time of the month, since, you know, gravity. This position is great since it you start out in missionary, then simply wrap your legs around your bae. It's a fun way to NOT bleed on your bae! Nice! Source
The Cramped PositionYou know that position you get into when you are having really bad cramps? Well, that's a sex position. Lay on your side and bring your knees up to your chest. Have your bae hold on to you by your hips as you try to get into the right angle. It might take some practice, but it actually will help your cramps and limit the amount of blood that gets everywhere. Source
Jockey PositionThis position is good since you really don't have to move around a lot, which is a plus when you're on your period. Just lay on your stomach and have your bay kneel over you with with elbows at your side. You don't really have to move, and the odds of a major bloody mess are low. Source
The ButterflyThis one is a little more risky, but if you're willing to try it, you will love it. Try this on the edge of a bed (or a table, as long as you put down some towels) and raise your knees up to your stomach. Have your bae hold onto you by your hips so you can stay stable while enjoying it. Source
The CelloHave you ever played a cello before? It's nothing like this. But, this "cello position" will have your bae doing most of the work, so you can get some much-needed down time during your monthly visitor. Lay on your back and raise your legs up on your bae's shoulder. You can cross your legs if you want to try something new! Source
The Drop BoxSupposedly, this is the best position for the female orgasm, which mean you need to try it ASAP, even if you're not on your period. Lay on your back on the edge of your bed, and have you bae stand over your at an angle. Wrap your legs around your partner (so you can be ~connected~ and also so you don't slip off the bed) and raise your hips up a little. It looks complicated, but it's basically just missionary while raising your hips and hanging off the bed. You've got this! Source
