The Pros and Cons of Sex During that Time of the Month

During menstruation, the vagina often turns into the no-no zone for many women. It has become taboo to do the deed during the dreaded period days. However, the decision to have intercourse at that time of the month is a personal one. In reality, there is nothing keeping you from doing so, especially because gals may be hot and heavy with all of those hormones. One of the leading reasons people abstain from sex during menstruation is that it's often a sticky situation. However, if you want to go with the flow, put a towel underneath the two of you or keep a washcloth nearby. Even better, why not relocate the party to the shower or bathtub? Once the water is on, you likely won't notice the difference. If you aren't monogamous, it is integral that you practice safe sex.

With blood comes an increased chance of spreading sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS. Also, while women are less likely to get pregnant during menstruation, it can still happen. On the flip side, most women don't realize that sex during menstruation can actually be beneficial. Sex can help fight cramps. Endorphins released during sex relieve pain. Even better, sex during menstruation may actually shorten your sentence. Research shows that the contractions during an orgasm may cause the body to shed blood at a quicker pace, making your period more abrupt. Because sex during menstruation is considered so taboo, it becomes an even bigger turn-on for men and women. Sometimes it's OK to see red.
