But I also don't think there's anything somehow repulsive about it. Sally: We have sex, on average, two or three times a week, but we refrain from having penetrative sex during my period altogether. It just feels more natural for both of us not to do it then.
The first time we were sleeping in the same bed while I had my period, he started to initiate sex, and I told him it was my time of the month. I really don't feel comfortable having sex during my period, because I just don't feel attractive or sexy. I wouldn't mind if sometimes we made love during those days, but generally, I feel it's better as a time of relaxation. Margot: Before Matt, I had had period sex, but it was not positive.
Menstruation may be a basic bodily function, but it's loaded as hell in our culture.
Throw in sex (or not) and things get even more heated. We asked our readers -- both women and men -- how they feel about period sex and how those feelings play out in their sex lives. "If someone's like, 'Blood in general is fine, but when it comes from a vagina it's disgusting,' that's ridiculous." .
For the first day or two, it's probably not going to happen because I have dysmenorrhea and am in excruciating pain. We drew hearts and swirls and wrote each other's names. It's still one of the most beautiful, connecting, sex-positive experiences I've ever had.

I've had sex with previous partners while I had my period, but I never enjoyed it. I was in an abusive relationship, and my ex-partner made me feel really ashamed and dirty about it.
I remember one time we were having sex, and he was going down on me.
I kind of forget that some people are really disgusted by it. That kind of thing just makes me feel a kind of defiance, like, f**k you.
Like, just a few weeks ago I was in an elevator with a co-worker who is basically my age, and he kept asking me where I was going so I finally jangled my change for the tampon machine. Now that I'm almost 30, I'm in a place where I'm much more comfortable with myself and my body, and I'm also much more aware that there's this huge culture of shame around women's periods. It's one thing if someone's like, "Um, blood makes me queasy." I get it.
I don't go so far as to not touch, and if I were in a committed relationship (which I'm not now) I would certainly snuggle and spend time with my partner, but I won't have sex or share my body in that way.
