There are a few things I’ve discovered about period sex: one, guys usually don’t give a f*ck if you are on your period or not – if they are grossed out by it, that’s actually incredibly lame and telling. Two, it’s something you should totally do. When people talk about period sex, a majority of the time you’d think it was some messy disaster people run from. Period sex should be normalized by this point. It’s a normal bodily function so get used to it. Here are some tips for having sex on your period along with some period sex stats.
